Looking for a local place for late breakfast, so we tried this establishment. Friendly staff members and we both went with the ham & cheese omeletes. Overall it was a nice dining experience, however personally did not like the texture of the ham used (too grainy & salty) in the omelete.

I had breakfast, twice, at the restaurant and was very happy with my meal both times. A special mention to the staff who were friendly and efficient with a sense of humor.

Food was good and delivered hot but owner is lacking customer service skills. He was quite brusque in his mannerism.

Johnathan's has a varied menu - something for everyone at reasonable cost. The service there is very good.

I know there are many restaurants in Victoria to explore but when staying at the wonderful Royal Scot Hotel why would anyone bother to search out somewhere to eat when Jonathan's has all bases covered except for Chinese Food. I was with a tour group over Christmas for the second time and had most meals in this restaurant. George, the... More

Had dinner here which was very tasty. They had a good selection on the menu or you could choose from either a 2 or three course menu. Service was very good. We will certainly be eating here again whilst on holiday. The restaurant was pretty quiet for a Friday evening so no reservation was necessary.

Selected this place for dinner as we were tired from the day's activities and it was across the street from the Best Western. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had an excellent french onion soup but my salmon entree was a little overdone.

We stayed at the Grand Pacific and we were told there was no available ATM. The desk clerk instructed me to try the Royal Scot Hotel (out the rear entrance, across the street) for an ATM to draw Canadian currency. While making a withdrawal from the lobby ATM, my wife read the posted menu for Jonathan's restaurant. We ate breakfast... More

This restaurant is located in the Royal Scot Hotel and Suites. We ate breakfast and dinner on two occasions (4 times total). Breakfast is relaxed and complete. Dinner is a . little more formal. Meals were excellent and well presented. Service was excellent. We liked it so much we ate here for breakfast and dinner on two days!
