You have to try the Shared family meal. $40 for each person but it is worth it. The service was awesome. So order some wine and relax because you will have a great night

We had an enjoyable here. The owner warmly greeted us and we were lucky enough to eat in a quiet alcove for our meal. We split the salad which was big enough for two and each had half portions of the duck and beef which was plenty for both of us and outstanding. Service was great at the beginning but... More

Our traveling companions and my husband and I dined at Cafe Brio in July on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews. We had a fun experience and a good meal. The proprietor and his Italian wife were very welcoming and the restaurant was quite lively. We had a quiet nook once it became available and in the meantime enjoyed some... More

In a very dull town this little restaurant stands out for food, service and local charm. Not cheap but not overpriced either, excellent, innovate food and friendly and capable service. Can't do better than this in Victoria

Great candlelit ambience -- perfect for a romantic dinner for two or an evening with a group of friends. We've been to Cafe Brio four times now. Excellent food. Excellent service. Tonight I had free-from lasagna -- fabulous! My husband had pasta and scallops. Highly recommended.

This is a quiet, charming restaurant with an intimate feel. The dinner menu contains pastas, fresh fish, and meat favorites as well as a wide selection of local wines. Service was good despite a full house last Sunday and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our salmon and steak entrees. If we were locals, this would be on our regular... More

We stayed at Abigail's Hotel and Cafe Brio was an easy walk. Four of us went to dinner at Cafe Brio. We loved the small intimate setting and having the owner check in on us to make sure we were having a good dining experience. Prices are Victoria prices (not an inexpensive restaurant) but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and felt... More

We went there because of the recommendations. The food was good, but we've eaten better. The portions are rather small and after 2 salads (1 1/2 order, 1 full), 2 main courses 1/2 order each, 2 times bread and a dessert, we've still been hungry. We are normal eaters and we've not been starving, but given the price even for... More

I read the review from some dolt posted in August 2014 where he/she referred to Cafe Brio as tasteless. Really? My only guess is that his/her typical diet is McDonalds or perhaps Burger King. My wife and I (from the States) come up to Victoria/Sydney as much as we can and had a chance to eat at Cafe Brio again... More

Came here tonight while visiting Victoria for 3 days from Boston, based on Trip Advisor reviews...exceeded expectations! It was great, from the hospitality and knowledgable waitstaff(Beth) and the warm, inviting, and cozy atmosphere, to the fabulous food, we were very happy with our choices. To start, a restaurant that doesn't have salt or pepper on the table, because nothing we... More
