wow Victoria shuts down almost completely on Christmas Day. I guess your best option would be to see what the high end downtown hotel restaurants are offering...

Yes, I was thinking that it will be tough to find a resto that isn't booked solid at this point.

You might keep in mind Plan B, which is to get some take out that will keep in your hotel room fridge overnight.

Here's another idea, although very likely booked up for Christmas Day: Butchart Gardens.


Grounds open 1 pm - 9 pm (gate closes at 10)

The Dining Room: dinner from 3-7h30 pm, high tea from 1-1h30 pm.

The Blue Poppy Cafe: dinner from 4 pm - 8 pm.

Try Don Mee Seafood Restaurant (Chinese) http://www.donmee.com/

Haro's Restaurant in the Sidney Pier Hotel is serving Christmas dinner. Good ocean views. Sidney is about 15 miles north of Victoria.

I would also endorse the Sidney Pier Hotel & Spa. Keep in mind that it is removed from Victoria but there is a lot to see and explore in Sidney. We go to Haro's all the time. The food is great.

We had a delicious but very non-traditional "Christmas dinner" take out last year from Don Mee's Chinese Restaurant.

Don Mee's is ok, but really, if you're in Victoria over Christmas, a take-out sounds grim (and this if from someone who does take-outs when travelling). See if Saffron Bistro (part of Swan's) is open -- very nice and not too spendy. Try to avoid dinner in the hotel restaurant -- usually too depressing for words. Also check if Zambri's, Cafe Brio, or Camille's is open -- these are excellent places. Good luck, and Happy Christmas in Victoria.

I would do Butchart Gardens for dinner and a nice walk around the gardens with the 12 days of Christmas display, that where I will be! You may also want to check out Nautical Nellies and pescatores they were both open last year for Christmas dinner.
