Having recently moved back to the island after 11 years in Vancouver, you can probably imagine that I came back here with inflated sushi expectations, and that any attempts to find a decent place would surely end in disappointment. But find one we did, and it's a gem. Food is always fresh, atmosphere is cozy but lively, and service is... More

Very small japanese restaurant downtown near the inner harbor. I had a great meal with ample sized portions, cooked just right " try the venison my personal favorite". Very reasonable dinner for three $70 us. Give this place a try.

The restaurant is small and cozy, we arrived around 6:00 ish for dinner - it was busy - we had no reservation - but the waiter quickly pulled a table from the reservation table and we had a seat. Waitress was polite and friendly and service was fairly quick. The sushi was delicious, but kind of small portions compared to... More

Fix the official address listing. Ebizo is now at 604 Broughton, not 734. It's worth seeking out. Good tempura and delicious sushi. I particularly liked the spider roll, with soft shelled crab. Cozy room, but not noisy, and -- once you find it. -- a very convenient location.

We stumbled on this place for lunch during a short visit to Victoria. We arrived around 12.30 and the restaurant was packed - clearly a favourite lunch spot for locals - but it had quietened down by the time we left around an hour later. I opted for the spicy pork noodle soup (ramen) while my husband chose the Ebizo... More

The menu offering at Ebizo is sub par. They have zero specialty rolls on the menu unless you count the rainbow roll, which I do not. We inquired about this and the waitress told us about one roll that was not on the menu. We ordered it and it was again, just okay. Avoid getting the seaweed salad. It is... More

I really liked the staff. I decided to try a dinner instead of Sushi. I think I'll go for the Sushi next time I go. They are famous for their Rainbow Roll. I saw it on someone else's plate. He says it is one of his favourites. A friend of mine says it's one of her favourites to. I noticed... More

I go to Ebizo quite frequently as I work downtown. I think their tuna tataki is the best in town, and I also like their spicy tuna and spicy salmon. The service can be a little abrupt, and it is often very difficult to get a reservation or a table. Part of its charm is how crowded it is. Don't... More

I really loved this place, seemed very authentic. The atmosphere was great the food was amazing and the prices not bad either!! I loved the fact you could see the chefs doing their thing. The Dynamite rolls were the best I've had, for once not too much sauce, just the perfect amount!!

Thank Jeffrey H
