Veneto1450 Douglas Street, Victoria
great place for drinks and food
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 3:32pm [Dine in]

I have been to Veneto a few times since it opened, and have always had a great time. The drink list is fantastic with a lot of variety and fun items, and the food menu is great with all of the options of tasting trios and light snacks. I like the idea that you can order crab or other items and taste it served 3 different ways, and that you can try a few things on the menu without getting too full. Nice lounge ambiance and the service is friendly and helpful.

Zambri's820 Yates St, #110, Victoria
Consistently good italian food
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 3:29pm [Dine in]

I used to go to Zambris when it was at its old location and loved it. It was the first really good italian that I had in Victoria, and I love the seasonal menu and fresh ingredients. Since its moved I have been back several times. We usually sit at the bar, and have always had great service. The atmosphere is lively, but nice for a date also. The pizza, pasta, salads and appetizers never disappoint and their tirimisu is one of the best in town. Always quite busy so good idea to make a reservation or be open to sitting at the bar.

Ulla Restaurant509 Fisgard Street, Victoria
Love this place
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 3:26pm [Dine in]

When I first tried this place I was so impressed, the service, atmosphere, and menu was great.The food definitely lived up to all of the good things I had heard. We started with a goat cheese appetizer which was sooo good, a great quality cheese with delicious pairings. We then shared short ribs which was also incredible. The seasonal dessert was strawberry rhubarb trio which was fresh and amazing. I can't wait to go back and try many more items on the menu.

Tapa Bar, The620 Trounce Alley, Victoria
Great place for drinks with friends
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 2:37pm [Dine in]

I have been to tapa bar many times, and still think its a great place to go for a drink and a few snacks. its busy even during the week which is nice for a lively atmosphere, and the drink menu has lots of variety. Mojitos and sagria are delicious. Although I always go back, I have never found the food here to be amazing. There a few great staples, like the bacon-wrapped dates, but a lot of things I have tried are nothing to rave about.

Spice Jammer, The852 Fort St., Victoria
Great Indian, nice ambiance
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 2:28pm [Dine in]

I have been here many times and have always had great food. Butter chicken, curries, pakoras, samosas, and naan are some of the best. The service here is always good, the drink menu is better than most indian places, and the atmosphere is nice enough for a date. The prices are a little high, but in general indian food isn't very cheap in Victoria.

Smoken Bones Cookshack1701 Douglas Street, #7, Victoria
Go here for drinks..not food
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 2:25pm [Dine in]

I went to Smoken Bones for a birthday dinner recently and it wasn't very good at all. Several people at the table ordered ribs, which I thought should be good since its a BBQ place, and they had to be cut apart with a steak knife. 2 people ordered soup and it had to be sent back because it was terrible (I pretty much never send food back at a restaurant, but I tasted it and it was awful). The pulled pork wasn't great, the fried pickles had way too much batter, and pretty much the only good thing we ordered was the yam fries. It was pretty sad and we are not a picky group. However, the drink menu was fun and the few cocktails I tried were really good, the server was also friendly and helpful and I felt bad for her for having to serve such bad food. Don't go here to eat, seriously.

Real Taste of India768 Fort Street, Victoria
Great indian food and nice ambiance
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 2:16pm [Dine in]

I went to this place as soon as it opened, before they even had a liquor license and we were sitting at a picnic table, and the food was amazing and since then the interior is decorated with a nice ambiance, they have a somewhat regualr bar menu, and we have been back many times. I think this place has the cheapest and most consistently good indian food in the downtown area. The butter chicken, curry, and pakoras are amazing, best butter chicken in Victoria by far. The prices are also good (cheaper than spice jammer, our favourite place before real taste of india opened). The wait time for food is usually 20-30 minutes, and the servers are helpful, yet sometimes things do get lost in translation, but we are patient and understanding because we love this place.

Prime Steakhouse623 Courtney St, Victoria
Great place for dinner
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 2:09pm [Dine in]

Have been here a few times in the past year, the steaks have always been great as well as the appetizers. The ambience in here is really nice, and the service has been good every time. They have a variety of items on the menu but I seem to always go with the steak, and seafood as an appy, have not been disappointed and they have a great selection of wine.

Matisse512 Yates St, Victoria
Great place for a date
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 2:03pm [Dine in]

I went to Matisse for the first time 2 weeks ago with my boyfreind, and really enjoyed the entire experience. The service from the moment we walked in the door was amazing, The owners' passion for food was evident, and the menu was very difficult to choose from as there are so much great options. We shared the pate and Lobster Bisque to start, both were delicious. Then came our mains of lamb and duck. The lamb was tender and juicy with a great sauce and perfect sized portion, the duck was also good but I liked the lamb better. We finished the meal with creme brulee, and it was as expected, amazing! its a quiet and upscale atmosphere which is great for a date, I felt like I was valued as a customer and the food lived up to matisse's reputation, will definitely be back.

best poutine ever
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 1:53pm [Take-out]

most authentic and delicious poutine in Victoria by far. If you are from Quebec you won't be disappointed. great place to stop by for a snack during the day or at night. Prices are resonable and service is great. I have looked far and wide for an authentic poutine place and I have finally found it.

Italian Food Imports1114 Blanshard Street, Victoria
Best meatball sandwich around
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 1:49pm [Take-out]

Almost every weekend we stop by this italian deli for a meatball sub, panini, or soup. The meatball panino is the best i have had, and the ingredients in all sandwiches are always fresh and tasty. Service is quick, as this place is often lined up, and there is a few small tables with chairs if you want to dine in. The prices are very reasonable for the sandwiches. The soups here are usually amazing, restaurant quality (lobster bisque is heavenly!). There is also a few delcious pre-made salads to choose from, and while you are grabbing lunch you can order some italian deli meat, cheese, or pasta for dinner as well.

Great place to pick up lunch
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 1:44pm [Take-out]

Whenever I feel the need to eat lunch out, I usually stop by the Grindstone cafe and grab one of their delicious homemade soups, and the apple chicken panini (amazing!). Their sandwiches are filling and delicious with real ingredients and their soups are always well flavoured and unique. The prices and fair for what you are getting and the service is always freindly and quick.

Fol Epi398 Harbour Road, #101, Victoria
Delicious Bakery!
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 1:39pm [Take-out]

I live close by and have tried many items at Fol Epi. The fresh baked bread is to die for, they usually have a selection of baguette and rye. The bread is 8.00 a loaf, so not a bargain, but worth it once in awhile if you ask me. The macroons here are amazing and authentic, and come in many flavours. The pastries are delicate and come in perfect portions, pair any baked good with a coffee from Discovery Coffee right next to Fol Epi and enjoy a relaxing morning or afternoon sitting on the patio in the sun.

Donair Shop, The1243 Esquimalt Road, Victoria
Best Donairs in Vic
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 1:35pm [Take-out]

I have been to this hole in the wall in Esquimalt a few times and have never been disappointed. Their donair meats are authentic and stuffed inside large warm pitas with veggies and delicious sauces. Very reasonably priced and I haven't found a better place to pick up a donair and greek salad for take out. Service is fine, not overly freindly, but I think it kind of adds to the personality of the place. If you want a nice place to sit down, this is not the place for you.

Great Food!
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 1:30pm [Dine in]

Owners are always eager to serve you and they are friendly with lots of personality. The food is authentic and consistently flavourful and delicious. Portions are large and prices are low. Caravanas has some of the best tabbouleh, falafel, and chicken donair plates that I have had, and all of the sauces and ingredients taste homemade.

Buon Amici's Coffee645 Tyee Road, Victoria
Great place for a light Breakfast and Coffee
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 1:25pm [Dine in]

I have been to Buon Amici's many times since its very close to my house, their espresso is great and I find that their lattes and mochas are way better than starbucks or serious coffee. They also have delicious muffins, baked goods and breakfast pitas. Its a nice quiet spot to sit and read and enjoy a snack or coffee.

Amrikko's Indian Grill298 Old Island Hwy, Victoria
Good Food, Nice Place
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 1:20pm [Dine in]

We go out for Indian often in Victoria, this place is great. The food has consistently been good, and the atmosphere is nice (which sometime can be sacrificed when going out for indian food). Service was great, wait time was minimal, prices were decent, and the butter chicken and pakoras were really good.
