Reviews we read were positive so looked forward to taking clients to Brio. When the Romaine Salad arrived it was our first surprise. The presentation was nothing I would serve to guests in my own home. Hoping it would get better but not so fortunate....More

Just had a wonderful dinner here with friends. Food and service were excellent. But the room is totally bereft of any attempt to do some sound proofing. The noise was so loud I couldn’t hear most of the conversation at our table.

Hello Traveler, Welcome to Victoria! Cafe Brio is right downtown Victoria. The cruise ships arrive very near downtown, so it is only about a 3.3km walk to Cafe Brio at 944 Fort Street. It takes 35 minutes to walk there or a... More
