They even sing 'Happy Birthday' to old people! I like these restaurants because I know what I'll get - no surprises.

A budget friendly place for dinner that gives consistent tasty meals. This is not ultra fine dining but we were a foursome and everyone enjoyed their meal.

a reasonably priced menu offering lots of choice. All entrees include bread ,salad and ice cream for dessert at no extra charge. It's a great restaurant for young families visiting Victoria and close to the inner harbour,the Royal Museum,, the Empress Hotel and Beacon Hill park.

A group of four of us went here and the food was fabulous. There was a large selection and the service was great. Would definitely recommend it especially if you are into pasta etc.
