The first was a salad of fiddleheads, asparagus and kale with a mint olive oil dressing. Fresh, crisp and very good... read more

My wife and I with some long time good friends took a trip to Victoria to celebrate the ladies birthdays for a few days. We asked Taylor, the Oak Bay Beach hotel shuttle driver, of places recommended to eat. One of his favorite spots was this place. We were a little early before they opened and walked around the charming... More

Nice little restaurant. Prompt pleasant service. We sat in the window seats to people watch while our meal was being prepared. Seats available outside too but too cold for that in March. Wife had a beautiful huge tenderloin steak which was very tasty. I had the top-of-the-line fish and chips which was disappointing, not worth the $. Busy, a good... More

My wife and I visited Victoria to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. After reading so many positive reviews of Blighty's we decided it might be just where we wanted to celebrate 45 years of wedded bliss. It certainly met our expectations! The food was exceptional!

In the Oak Bay area, this was a favourite for years when I visited my parents who lived in Oak Bay. It is small so the noise is not overwhelming. My parents loved good food and their travels always included finding at least one 1 star Michelins! This place never failed to deliver excellent meals. Service was friendly and efficient.

On the spur of the moment we decided to treat ourselves to dinner at one of our favourite restaurants We were not disappointed and even having to wait for half an hour before a table became available we were rewarded with a wonderful meal and excellent service. Three of us shared two appetizers - duck confit lettuce wraps and mussels.... More

I know I'm lucky to live in Oak Bay and one reason is Blighty's Bistro. I had an out of town friend visiting whom I wanted to take to a super spot. We hadn't seen eachother in years and so needed to talk and catch up. The window table is slightly separated from the main seating area and provided the... More

If you live in Victoria especially Oak Bay you will know Blightys, but if you are new or just visiting it will not be top of mind and is not listed in the usual places....and that is a shame...this a great little place....about 20 tables, able to accommodate about 36 people. Richelle Osborne has operated Blightys for years and is... More

Is it the food? Is it the atmosphere? Is it the great service? As a long time resident of Victoria and a frequent visitor to Blighty's, I can say with assurance that it's all of the above. While Rachelle has been the constant, a few different chefs over the years as well as frequent menu changes keep this restaurant as... More
