We were at the Bengal Lounge on a Sunday night and I must admit it looked kind of mayhem the night before. However, our Sunday with the lights twinkling on Parlament and the beautiful old fan above, sitting in the leather chairs in this beautiful room was enchanting. We had visited the old Raffles hotel (pre-renovation) on our honeymoon and agreed that it had that same "colonial" feel. The food was good - not great. The buffet is actually very small, but is not really why you are here. The bar is great and has a wonderful cocktail list. The cocktails are quite generous and there is an ala carte menu, which I would prefer in the future. Our waiters were really wonderful and helpful, but not hovering. I would definitely return. It is very romantic, with tables far a part so as to be intimate, but there were tables of 4-6 nearby. Just a warning - No one under 19 allowed and they require two pieces of Identification. We had hoped to take our teens (16 & 17) to dinner on an earlier visit, but they were not admitted. A must if you are in Victoria on a cold night in need of a cozy location.
