We chose this restaurant because it was close to our hotel within walking distance. We were greeted promptly and seated by the window. Recommendations were made and we chose the specials. My husband and son both had the steak and lobster special and I had the maple glazed salmon. Shortly after receiving our beverages, our meals arrived piping hot. It... More

NIce, cozy little place right in the hotel district near the Parliament and harbour. Good food, good service. Simple and elegant. Ask for a table with a water view.

Steaks were cooked to perfection, lobster served with hot butter, waiters dressed in tuxedos. Very impressive place. Small restaurant therefore make reservations, views the harbour. Went for anniversary.

We ate there over the Christmas season. The place was full, not surprising since it has a good reputation. However, with so many people the food was lukewarm and the service poor. No fault of the waiter as he was as efficient as he could be considering the number of tables he was in charge of. Management needs to add... More

Just spent the evening with another couple for a New Years Eve dinner. Both my wife and I had the special consisting of the filet mignon, lobster tail and prawns along with Tomato Ginger soup, and crème brulee as the desert, all of which were fantastic. The disappointment came from the lack of service. People who arrived after us had... More

Harbour House was an unexpected delight during our visit to Victoria - unexpected, because very few places have wait staff this good anymore, and even fewer places can turn out a great meal on New Year's Eve - a night that typically tests the very best kitchens. The food was first-class - one of the best shrimp scampi ever -... More

We ate here three years ago and decided if as still there to try again. It was under new management having been bought out by the head waiter. The food, the view, the service, the rustic charm was everything good we remembered.

We had spent most of the day walking around Victoria and then Butchart Gardens. It was Christmas Eve. We did not have reservations since we picked the restaurant out of the blue because it was a scant two blocks from the place we were staying. They found us a table and treated us as if we were long-time patrons. The... More

We've eaten here before several years ago and remembered it as a good experience, so we stopped by on a recent trip and I'm pleased to say we weren't disappointed. One lemon dill salmon meal and one grilled pork loin and both were delicious, even the veggies were cooked to perfection, not overdone. The service was prompt and professional; what... More
