This a a fabulous little restaurant. The owner/server, Richelle, is very hospitable (A+++) and attended to our every dining need with great humour and professionalism. The menu is small but there is a nice range of delicious dishes - each of our party of four had a a different dish, and we each declared our dish a triumph. The restaurant... More

My family have been going to Blighty's for years for its delicious food and welcoming, casual atmosphere. Everyone is treated like a dear friend, and the food is reliably delicious. There is a small menu of excellent choices, usually one from each column of beef or pork, chicken, fish and veggie, and a few delightful choices for dessert. The wine... More

The restaurant is a "local" for us - just a few blocks away but we keep coming back for the excellent food and reasonable prices. The owner Rachelle is a great entertainer and even decorates the walls with her art. Worth the trip if you are visiting Victoria.

All the best restaurants are not in the city. Move out of town and experience dining at it's best. Compact menu doing what it can do best. Compact dining area without being too close for comfort with fellow diners. Owner will greet you ,and take care of your order, and follow through if anything goes wrong. Nothing did go wrong...

We ate here, once again, two weeks ago. This restaurant benefits from the quality that arises when the owner is hands-on. Rachelle, Blight'ys owner, continues to offer the best of innovative delicious local food with an welcome that is unsurpassed. Vegetarian, seafood and meat options all manage to be outstanding in a carefully-selected menu. Victoria is becoming a town with... More

Once a year, if we are lucky, we have dinner at Blighty's Bistro with good friends. We are never disappointed and always wish we could try more menu items than we have room for! All are so enticing! We settled on scallop appetizers for 3 of us and vegetarian lettuce wraps for me. (I could so easily become a vegetarian... More

My husband and I were delighted by our first visit to Blighty's. We were greeted warmly by Michelle the owner and shown to a cute private little window area. Fun ambience, but the reason for going was to try the food. We opted to share two appetizers: the fish tacos and the scallops. Both were so tender and so favourful.... More

Richelle and her staff became our good friends five minutes after we walked in the door. The food was as delicious in taste as it was in presentation. And I believe by the time the evening was over, every one of the staff made it to our table for one reason or another. The drinks were perfect and the wine... More
