Had dinner here which was very tasty. They had a good selection on the menu or you could choose from either a 2 or three course menu. Service was very good. We will certainly be eating here again whilst on holiday. The restaurant was pretty quiet for a Friday evening so no reservation was necessary.

Selected this place for dinner as we were tired from the day's activities and it was across the street from the Best Western. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had an excellent french onion soup but my salmon entree was a little overdone.

We stayed at the Grand Pacific and we were told there was no available ATM. The desk clerk instructed me to try the Royal Scot Hotel (out the rear entrance, across the street) for an ATM to draw Canadian currency. While making a withdrawal from the lobby ATM, my wife read the posted menu for Jonathan's restaurant. We ate breakfast... More

This restaurant is located in the Royal Scot Hotel and Suites. We ate breakfast and dinner on two occasions (4 times total). Breakfast is relaxed and complete. Dinner is a . little more formal. Meals were excellent and well presented. Service was excellent. We liked it so much we ate here for breakfast and dinner on two days!

We ate here twice whilst staying at The Royal Scott's Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed both meals. The service provided was of a high quality as was the food. Two courses for $20 soup or salad to start followed by sirloin steak cooked to perfection. Remember that this restaurant closes between 8.30p.m. and 9.00p.m. so make sure you arrive early or...

We went to the restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel. The food was well prepared and the service was excellent. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I had a steak with Ceasar salad. It came with fresh vegetables and potatoes. The steak had a very tasty sauce. I hadn't expected much. It turned out to be great.

A Sunday lunch date. Chose the quiche "brunch" special. My colleague the crepe special. Both were freshly made and excellent. Service was perfect. Pleasant surroundings. A little more pricey than some but not unduly. After all this is Victoria in the high tourist season.

We stayed at Royal Scott's Hotel which is connected to Jonathan's restaurant. After the first great breakfast the server remembered our name when we were seated I love that. The breakfast was excellent with scrambled eggs, bacon, toast and served with fresh fruit. We later had dinner which was also excellent. The staff was also friendly and efficient. The steak... More

We stayed here at the Royal Scot, which was very pleasant. We got up late after a long day of traveling, and went to Jonathan's for eggs. It was quite good. Nothing extraordinary, but very satisfying. The service was fabulous.
