Description: A stylish sophisticated urban lounge in the heart of downtown Victoria, Veneto is the ideal place to unwind with co-workers and friends. Adorned in exotic wood, leather and Italian marble, Veneto seduces patrons with its extensive cocktail menu and its savoury offerings from our chef. Every entree is presented tapas style and comprised of three unique dishes within the entree. Our executive chef Tod Bosence has designed flavours that are unique yet complimentary, and that provide an engaging taste experience, ideal for sharing. Veneto's bartenders led by Simon Ogden, display their knowledge and passion with a classically inspired cocktail list. Fresh squeezed citrus, only top shelf spirits and exacting techniques. Veneto offers its patrons a small but significant wine selection, both by bottle and by the glass. We specialize in North American Craft beer as well as boast the largest selection of bourbons in the city.

“Something different”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Tapas is a fun way to eat - smaller portions with more choices. I especially like choosing 3 desserts instead of just one!

“A must”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The staff were helpful and friendly in this fun, romantic environment. We liked it so much, we went twice during our visit to Victoria. The Tapa Trio's were a fun way to share food while trying a variety flavors. The cocktails were also great!

“yummy fusion tapas”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Not traditional Spanish tapas, but brilliant fusion meals!! Combination plates with each plate being a true taste treat -- select plates of beef, duck, seafood, vegetarian, or mixed. Add your choice of a fine wine and voila a superb dining experience. We choose to go as a couple and regularly take out of town guests too.

“Brilliant service, food and wine.”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

A chilly November evening in Victoria. We needed somewhere, warm, cheery yet intimate with good food and fine wine. Veneto ticked all the boxes and came highly recommended. It does have street view, and a private dinning/small function room.
