Located minutes from Farimont and Marriott hotels in Victoria. This is a great place to drop by for a meal or drink. Great view. I had a meeting with an associate and food was exceptional. In the busy season I would recommend a reservation.

We checked out the menu early in the day and decided to come back and were not disappointed. We had the 3 tasting menu items. I had the ultra rare scallops seared to perfection, the prawns and greens. Each was a tasting delight. We finished up with several desserts, but the creme brulee was the best! Our server, Jay, couldn't have been better. He didn't rush us, explained the dishes well and had perfect timing. All with a view!

We had breakfast for 3 mornings we were at the hotel. It was always good. We really liked the view from the top of the hotel. It is all glassed in and a great view. We were also there of evening reception. The food was wonderful. Garlic shrimp and ribs were the best. Looking forward to going back next year.

The food was delicious and the night view stunning over the city and water. The only complaint I had was that when my friend tried to substitute quinoa for potatoes he was chastised over it for quite some time saying "the chef expects you to have it with quinoa as its his creation." It made my guest feel very uncomfortable and seemed like the waiter was making him feel bad for choosing something different almost trying to challenge him. Never seen that before in any fancy restaurant. Nonetheless our meals were delicious potatoes and all and we had a great night. I did not find the prices too expensive for the meals or wine bottles except for the desserts.
