We went to Bubby's for a pre-Christmas get together with some friends who wouldn't be here for Christmas. It was crowded and it is suggested that if you are intending to visits Bubby's that you book. There is a patio out front with heaters although at this time of the year and especially in the evening it would be a bit cool.

All the food is from local (BC) producers - whether it is wild Pacific salmon, short ribs, duck or veggies and everything tasted fresh.

The wine list while not extensive is very good and the prices most reasonable for a restaurant. All wines are available by the glass. There was a good selection of bottled local craft beers and a couple on tap. Which I can state were excellent.

Our table was ready when we arrived and the service throughout the evening was attentive without being "in your face". We were not rushed in any way which made for a very pleasant evening. Our server was helpful and knowledgeable about the menu including the wine.

This was a great experience and as it is in our neighbourhood we will be going back. We want to work through the menu.

We were told by our Inn that we would have good food here. The staff kindly allowed us to take places at the bar when the cafe was full. The food was very good and we even had space for dessert.

Nice variety of tasty food. Hubby had a bison burger voted one of the best ever had. I went for veggie burger which was very tasty. Place was buzzing and good value compared to downtown tourist traps. A nice find and well worth seeking out.

If you are looking for a relatively romantic quiet atmosphere I suggest you arrive early or late. This restaurant obviously is a hit with the local crowd, being fairly busy mid-evening. The food is different from the normal menu, very good, portions ample and reasonably priced. Definitely worth the visit.

Bubby's was recommended to us by inn keepers at the Ashcroft House Bed and Breakfast and they were not wrong. This was a fantastic place to eat. Located in the Cook St Village, it has a neighbourhood feel about it. The food was reasonably priced for the quality dishes that we had. A lot of thought and imagination went into the menu...and so much so that we went back for dinner the second night we were in Victoria! We did not have reservations for the first night and were lucky to get in. We did make reservations for the second night and would highly recommend that you do make reservations so as not to be disappointed.
There were 4 of us for 2 nights so 8 main meals and ALL were fabulous. In particular, the gnocci that came with the chicken was superb...loved that it did not have the traditional cream sauce with it, but was more pan fried with a little 'gravy'....yum!!!
I would highy recommend that you check this place out...you won't be disappointed.
