Eclectic decor in an old store. The menu was nice and food was okay but just too much oil and not just in one dish. Service was good but nothing outstanding.
Victoria has the most restaurants per capita of any North American city. But you probably won't find this little restaurants on the "famous:" list. But Rochelle and staff provide the friendliest environment and the tastiest creative Northwest food that you'll find. It's small so you'll need a reservation. It's worth a trip to downtown Oak Bay to experience this special... More
This hasn't occurred to me in my years as an avid TripAdvisor user but I have to say that the comments of NAVSWO are absolutely spot on. Truly, not much to add but I shall in the hope that more information will help other travellers and perhaps help Blighty's hit the heights it is capable of. My wife and I... More

Unlike many people, I go to a restaurant initially for the decor and stay ( as a loyal customer) for the food and service. Blighty's is outstanding in all three areas. The room is small but cozy not tight. What other restaurant do you know where the charming and whimsical decor changes with the seasons or special events? The food... More
Consider a dart board and not ever quite hitting the bulls-eye. That's Blighty's. Everything is so close to perfect, yet misses by just a tad. My wife and I hit Blighty's for dinner and invited our daughter to go along. The atmosphere is small and cozy, dark and personable, quaint but inviting. You can take that as small, dark and... More
Best food on Vancouver Island! The room is cozy, the service is fabulous and the food is flavourful and very well presented. I highly recommend this, and will be back!
We haven't been to Victoria in almost 8 years and we decided this time to go to restaurants that were not chains(Moxie's, Milestones etc). The first one we went too was Blighty's. In two words, perfect and amazing. The best restaurants in many cases are not ones that spent a fortune on decor or on the building. They spend it... More
We have dined here twice and loved it both times. Not only is the food creative and exquisitely made, but the service is so personal. You feel like a real, welcome guest, an individual. It's small, intimate, colourful ...just a wonderful place for a special meal.
We have been out of the country for quite some time and when we came back to Blighty's, we saw the fabulous design changes, re-connected with Rachelle and were pleasantly reminded what a truly outstanding eatery this is. A quiet intimate evening, the sounds of an excellent guitarist in the background and not surprisingly, an amazing meal, yet again. It... More
The food was impeccably prepared. The scallops were perfectly cooked and oh so good. The salad dressing had a touch of vanilla. Very unusual and very tasty. The Caesar (which I am not normally fond of) was wonderful too. We both had the filet which was well seasoned and cooked to order. Good wine list. Great, reasonably priced reds. We... More
