Victoria’s restaurants are, in a single word, diverse. Wide-ranging in style, price and culinary tradition, they’re at their best when showcasing regional seafood, local produce and each chef’s creativity. From traditional favourites like fish and chips to high-end fusion featuring Humboldt squid and nettle foam, dining in Victoria reflects the kind of commitment to fresh, local and sustainable food that’s pretty much a lifestyle around these parts. The city’s Asian communities are represented by numerous spots for sushi, noodles and curry, while local microbrewery offerings bubble from the taps pretty much everywhere. Food trucks fill in the gaps, typically gathering at locations like the Royal BC Museum (on our list of best things to do in town) and Camosun College for on-the-go eats like gourmet risotto balls, grilled cheese and Buddha bowls. Without further ado, here are the best restaurants in Victoria.
