If I were sentenced to be executed at dawn, I would want Michel to cook my last dinner. The mussels were succulent and juicy, the French bread homemade and fresh, the venison and lamb mouthwatering, and the lemon cake light, tangy and not too sweet.

Well worth the short trip to scenic Oak Bay. Food was wonderful, we ate here in June and again after our wedding in September. At all times the service was on,y eclipsed by the food. A truly fine meal.

We had a lovely meal here. In the summer you can sit outside in a very private grassy area behind the restaurant.
We were treated very well and it is nice to see some classic dishes ( this is not a trendy place, but very old school ) On the menu. You can rely on the steak dishes ( steak au poivre has a nice kick ). Lobster bisque is oh- so rich, and the salads were lovely. I was surprised, however, that some desserts were prepared with tinned fruit rather than the luscious local fruit so abundant in August when we visited.
Michel has been cooking for something like 40 years, which is apparent when you taste the deeply flavoured sauces. He will check with you frequently to make sure everything is alright.
Well- frequented by the affluent locals of Oak Bay, tourists who venture this way will be rewarded with good service and fine food.

Chez Michel is a gem not to be missed. Just outside of downtown Victoria, right on Oak Bay Avenue is the best French restaurant in town. Lovely service, attentive but discreet, and excellent food. Their escargot is fantastic. Quintessential French cuisine, an excellent wine cellar at a range of prices, real Dover sole, terrific lamb... save room for dessert. Michael's many years of experience shine through.

Like an amazing fine vintage wine, Michel gets better and better with each visit. 40 Years in the restaurant business in Victoria/Oak Bay have paid off for Michel who is charming to say the least and a master of French Cuisine. He is both chef and patron/maitre'd. and personally oversees the complete operation of this very fine establishment . Not too be missed !!
