Had dinner at Cafe Brio two years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our visit this time was almost as good as the last time. The reason for the “almost”is because the lamb didn’t taste like lamb at all. It was very neutral without that distinctive...More

The only place we know that also offers 1/2 portions--and even then, we usually bring home left-overs. Staff are as attentive and polite as the food is great and carefully prepared.

I had the duck legs, they were ok. Pretty boring and not the flavour explosion I expected. "Red alert" extremely fitting name. Probably the worst drink/cocktail I have ever had at a restaurant.

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
