When I heard thatIl Terrazzo had been voted the best Italian restaurant in all of Victoria, I was very curious to find out just how great it was.
I knew that if this place was all it claimed to be, then it would most likely be busy on a Saturday night, so I wisely made reservations. (more…) July 10, 2014 | ilovevictoria
There are many great pubs in Victoria, but few who can offer great atmosphere, a patio on Victoria’s Inner Harbour, and great handcrafted beers all in one place.
Well, Canoe Brewpub, Marina & Restaurant does just that. (more…) July 10, 2014 | ilovevictoria
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.
The good news is you have a few choices of where you can get your traditional English fare in Victoria, but after visiting Red Fish Blue Fish, you may not have to look any further. (more…) July 10, 2014 | ilovevictoria
If you’re looking for a great patio in downtown Victoria where you can be in the middle of all the action, and at the same time have a view of the inner harbour, Darcy’s Pub is where you want to be.

After receiving its recent accolade of “Best Restaurant in Victoria” by Vancouver Magazine, I knew that Zambri’s Restaurant was one restaurant I couldn’t miss dining out at any longer.
Prior to eating here, I had read numerous reviews of this restaurant, most of which had only great things to say about chef Peter Zambri’s ability to create incredible Italian dishes. (more…) July 9, 2014 | ilovevictoria
Browns Socialhouse, as described by its owner Scott Morison, serves “fresh, lively, flavourful food in a room that is fun, energetic and designed to be as comfortable as my living room…but without the dog hair.”
This being my first ever visit to a Browns, I was definitely impressed with the atmosphere and agreed that it was fun, energetic and comfy all at the same time. (more…) July 8, 2014 | ilovevictoria
If you’ve ever driven from the Victoria airport to downtown Victoria, you have probably seen that section of highway 17 with the big billboards advertising various things to see and do in this great city.
One sign that I’ve noticed many times is that of the Tapa Bar Restaurant in trounce alley. I may not be a huge fan of those signs but I have to admit every time I drive by I think to myself, I have to go there some day. (more…) July 7, 2014 | ilovevictoria

If you’ve ever thought that vegans and vegetarians only eat things that taste as bland as drywall, then you’re not alone.
I used to think that way, and it’s only recently that I discovered there’s this amazing non meat eating world out there that many people don’t know exists. July 7, 2014 | ilovevictoria
There aren’t many things I enjoy doing more in Victoria than relaxing on a waterfront patio and sipping on a drink in the sunshine.
The main reason I like going to Milestones Grill & Barso much is because there isn’t a restaurant in Victoria that gets you closer to the water of the Inner Harbour than it does. July 5, 2014 | ilovevictoria
