If you're looking for a great, well established restaurant close to the Inner Harbour, this would be a great choice. The atmosphere is calm and very comfy, service by the experienced staff impeccable ,and the food always good, prepared to perfection and served with class. Steak and lobster is their specialty, but all other choices are also worth trying, you... More

After many trips to Victoria, we decided to try the Harbour House, and we are very glad we did. The shrimp scampi was cooked to perfection and the osso buco was amazing. Everything we ordered was delicious and perfectly cooked. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We had a very pleasant evening out. We will definitely return.

This was our 2nd anniversary and I really wanted steak & lobster. The last time we went here we were a little disappointed so we hesitated but every other time was good so decided it was walking distance to our hotel so we booked a reservation. OMG the dinner went down without a hitch. Smoothly served with perfect amount of... More

We went to Harbour House as it was close to where we were staying in Victoria, and we were not expecting anything other than a nice dinner, what we had was one of the best meals out we have had in a long time. My husband was a chef for years and makes lobster bisque for me at home, which... More

We had been to this restaurant with a group a few years back, and had the upstairs private room. We had found the service and food great at that event so we decided to return for a dinner for two. We were seated in at a nice window table. The waiter was very attentive but not intrusive. Everything was as... More

Our family, age range 30-82, went and enjoyed a dinner out over the thanksgiving weekend. Table cloths, excellent wait staff and delicious food made Pythias a special night out. I had steak and lobster, special of the night and it was excellent. Others had rack of lamb, again delicious and cooked to exactly the stage requested, and prime rib. We... More

My husband and I came here after a few disappointing restaurant experiences. This was a great experience from the service to the escargot, all the way to the dessert. The server was so respectful and gave us the best service we'd had in a long time. I'd definitely return to the Harbour House Restaurant!

We ate here whilst staying at the Oswego. Our first experience was fantastic, the food was first class and the service excellent. We enjoyed the experience so much we decided to visit again on our last evening. This time we were disappointed, the food quality was not as good (small touches like Sauce on the fish were missing) and our... More

We were staying just near here and thought we would give it a try, and we are glad we did. It was not very busy and looking in from outside we thought that maybe we were a little under dressed (Jeans, polo shirt and hiking shoes), but remembering some of the other reviews we ventured in. We were immediately at... More
