Love the location - close to the ocean, close to Victoria Golf Club, but the restaurant staff needs more training. Just look around to see if anyone needs anything, will ya! Nothing worse than paying a price for food and being ignored.More

It’s in a hotel near oak bay. Actually most fine dining restaurants in Victoria are hotel restaurant. Small place. Nice to interior renovation. Average fine dining food. Service is nice. Nice ocean view from the window. Recommended if you stay in this hotel. 3.5/5.0.
