Hadn't been to Cafe Brio for a couple years...Walking in not too much had changed..which is a good thing. Comfortable ambiance, busy and familiar. We sat at the bar and had great service. Not many restaurants offer 1/2 portions on both the starters and the mains which worked well for us. 2 - 1/2 starters then 2- 1/2 mains is... More

Cafe Brio is a don't miss spot when in Victoria. Nice space, great menu, friendly people, reasonable prices. Oh, and our food was outstanding. We will return to Cafe Brio when we return to Victoria.

Our concierge recommended this restaurant and our party of 6 were not disappointed. Situated just a little outside of downtown, this small restaurant is very quaint. We were seated in a private room and were able to enjoy our dinner and carry on conversations without worrying about other guests. The menu has a reasonable variety of meats, fish, pasta. The...

Top of the line restaurant with a creative menu. All the small dishes add up, so we found it expensive but weren't surprised by it. The wine special for the week we were there was particularly delicious. Lovely for our anniversary celebration.

Right upon our arrival, owner Greg made us feel so welcome. Thanks for sharing your stories with us. We could have talked to you for hours. Your staff is exquisite, and the meal one of the best we've ever had. We really enjoyed your wine special of the Syrah. A quaint, darling place with superb service and delectable food. What... More

The staff at our hotel recommended this place for dinner. Cute little spot outside of the downtown core. This was nice, because it wasn't quite as crowded as most places. The food was really very good. Friendly, attentive staff.

Great atmosphere, service and food. Really like the fact that half portions are offered. Been several times and it is always consistently good.

Have just returned from Cafe Brio where a friend and I had a superlative meal. Wonderful atmosphere, great service and excellent food, beautifully presented with no hint of being rushed by the serving staff. An excellent wine list as well. All in all, the Cafe Brio is difficult to beat.

We got engaged here 13 years ago and 10 years ago moved away from Victoria but when ever we can we try to stop and have a meal. We are never disappointed. We never have a reservation but they always manage to find us a table. The food is superb with some combinations that you wouldn't have thought of but... More

While not really late, many kitchens find it difficult to accommodate late arrivals. Staying at Abigail's, they called to be sure I could be accommodated. Happily I could. What lovely ambiance, Marvellous meal and great service. Thank you Café Brio.
