Love this little restaurant and the location

Have been there a few times at the past. The chief and personal is very nice. Cooking is excellent. They have always a special offer and good wines. Hope to be there again n the future. Greetings from Germany :-)

We ventured to Steeples for New Year's Day brunch and it was great! Tasty food and a nice quaint space with attentive servers made it a great start to the new year.

I purchased a groupon to try this restaurant and was astounded by the poor quality for the prices they were asking. I paid extra for a calamari starter and it was abysmal. Zero levels of flavors in the claggy over sweet sauce, you could get better calamari at any juke joint or pub. The pizza was alright, but again, it... More

Built in an old church, this is easy to find on the main street of Shawnigan Lake. It serves food that is comparable to Victoria and centres in the Eastern part of our continent. The atmosphere compliments the fine food. The prices are a bit high but sustainable due to the quality of the food.

Excellent pizza. Very friendly staff. Very polite and no issues about taking off one item off the pizza to replace with another item. They give you a warm feeling of appreciation when you place an order. Pizza is always hot and on time. Never a complaint.

Kudos to the wonderful staff and management of this fine eating establishment. My wife and I finally visited this place last September on our way back from a weekend in Vitoria. We purchased a Groupon voucher which I regularly do so we got a 50% food discount. Our steak and lobster were done to near perfection! The waitress that served... More

A return to Steeples with friends was once again a memorable evening. Pleasant staff and fine food made for a great evening out. The setting for this restaurant is near Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island and is well worth a visit.

A small group of us go out for dinner every Friday. This restaurant is a bit of a drive for us but each time we go we wonder why we don't go more often. Not only is the food consistently excellent, but the ambiance is great and there are often good deals, like their four course groupon meals or romance... More

Well worth the visit, as the cozy atmosphere and delicious food make for a good night out. It is a tad pricey with smaller portions, but it more on the high-end restaurant side of things. Service was okay, we did wait at the door for quite some time before we were seated. Once we were at our table, the service... More
