Had a large party, say 18, and they served us well. Kept the water and foo coming well paced. Nice to see BC wines on the offerings. Thought the calamari was a bit dry/overcooked AND the Pork Belly was excellent. Had several starters rather than...More

The staff were helpful, friendly and outgoing. The view first class and the bar drinks very tasty. The appies were disappointing, nothing special on the tiny crab cakes, and the calimari was lacking. But the lamb meatballs were quite good, mixed well with the pasta....More

Lure has a superb location right on Victoria’s inner harbour with views of The Empress, Legislature, float planes, ferries, water taxis and yachts. The large patios feature these views, weather permitting. However, if you have an inside table, the views are quite impeded by the...More

We stayed at the Delta and subsequently dined at Lure twice, not because we were so impressed the first time, but because we were tired and it was convenient. The view is beautiful across the harbour. The service was fine and the food is OK,...More
