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.

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