Canoe has a great location on the inner harbour. Looking out over the water is wonderful. Many places, the quality of the view is inversely related to the quality of the food. Canoe follows that rule. The food wasn't horrible, I had the Wild Seafood...More

Large outdoor seating area. Perfect for a summer evening! Good food, and a nice time with our family, enjoying the evening, the view, and time together. I enjoyed a gluten free pasta dish. They have a gluten free menu and were helpful.

It's neat, after all our visits to Victoria, to find this place - it has a great location and the historic building with a view of the shipyards is awesome....it probably 'rocks' when there is live music. Service was attentive and we enjoyed our afternoon...More

Happened to stumble upon a most remarkable spot in Victoria this week and wanted to give it a big pat on the back. The Canoe Brew Pub is tucked away on the inner harbor (450 Swift Street) but well worth the effort to hunt it...More
