Recommended to visit by some diners who had just enjoyed an excellent meal. We were not disappointed by any of the tree courses we had or the wine. Reasonably priced

We had a great meal and fabulous service at Harbour House restaurant in Victoria. The halibut as a Monday night special was extraordinary at a fair price. The steak and lobster was too. We’ll look up Harbour House next time we’re on beautiful Vancouver Island!
