Wonderful, expertly prepared food from start (flatbread with figs, goat cheese, arugula and balsamic vinegar) to lamb tagine and halibut with risotto entrees to blueberry crumble with ice cream dessert. Good service and cute place too. Best dinner in Victoria. No contest.

We were two tired travellers just arrived ex Sydney. The hostess with the mostest gave us a table even though we had not booked and the kitchen was finished for the evening. What a champ! The meal was sensational; inventive and so tasty.

Always a good experience for dinner. Food is excellent and service very good. This is a small restaurant so reservations are recommended.

This is a hidden gem on Oak Bay Avenue, just behind the "Tweed Curtain" in Oak Bay. Reservations are recommended, especially weekends. Decorated with the owner's imaginative art, the mood is intimate but relaxed. Food here is consistently, though the menu changes regularly, and the...More

Yes, on street and in the parking lot beside. Very quiet at night, the only cars are those at Blighty's.

This is a small restaurant so I am not sure how many people it can serve. But I do remember a rehearsal dinner was going on when we went there once. They can seat up to 40 people. The owner, Richelle is a wonderful, friendly... More
