We spent one day in Victoria and had lunch here. Both of us had burgers that were excellent. Seasoned fries were great too. Superior service and great views!

Beautiful peroid building with a great patio overlooking the gorge, close to downtown. Good drink selection and food choices. Food was great as was service. Parking is very limited and tight.More

Very cute restaurant north of the Esquimalt Rd bridge; a bit of a walk from the Inner Harbour but doable (can also take a Harbour Ferry-$6 one way). Good basic burgers and beer. Fish and Chips quite good as well. Sit outside if weather permits-large...More

Ate here as part of an organised dinner through Cosmos tours. We took a very small water taxi cruise of about 40 minutes to arrive at the dock of the restaurant. Our group had the upstairs section to ourselves so or noise didn't disturb anyone!...More
