Brasserie L’ecole is the place to feel the taste of the Classic French cuisine but if you want to take the chance, you need to appear there before 5:30. It is one of the most popular restaurants in the area and you will need to stand up in a line but it’s worth the wait!. The thing is that the restaurant is not that large and it is impossible to make any reservations. Make sure that you can spend some time in a line as you may be seated much later. At the same time, you do not have to stay in a line as you will be notified when your table is ready. More details here. (more…)

With all its rave reviews and awards, there had been a lot of buildup for me coming to Brasserie L’Ecole for the first time.
I have to admit I was very curious and excited to see what all the hullabaloo was about.

While in Victoria, it’s hard not to want to eat fish and chips at least once. There’s something about being by the sea that says you have to eat them.
