If I hadn't been almost frozen, I would have loved this place. The food was well prepared and presented, the service was friendly and efficient but the sub-zero temperatures really put me off. Granted it doesn't get that cold that often in Victoria but they clearly knew it was an issue. When we commented, the response was, "I know and... More

Healthy and hearty food. Very tasty vegetarian options on the menu that was unique and very tasty. The restaurant was cold yet the had the heaters on to make the porch warm, but no customers? Go figure.

Firstly the atmosphere every time that I come here I feel so comfortable as if it's an experience just set up for me. The service is wonderful, the staff is so lovely and really make the experience better. The food is also wonderful and really tests the pallet. I only wish there were more dairy free options on the menu,... More

We found this bistro some years back when we were last in Victoria, and were delighted to discover it was right across the street from the hotel we chose for this most recent trip. Its new (to us) name reflects the owner's acquisition of a small farm. We couldn't resist the rotisserie chicken, grown on the farm, and it (and... More

The thing that caught our eye was the line that they use food direct from their farm. The quality of food here is good, as is the service. On the evening of our visit we waited for about 30 min for a table. There was a big party of young men and women at the bar and in high spirits.... More

We went late at night and this was the only restaurant that seemed to have a vibe. Many places were closed- a Sunday in January seems to be a quiet time in Victoria. When we expressed an interest in good wines the waitress brought over a selection of her favorites and gave us an impromptu tasting. I selected a Rose... More

For out of town guests this could be easily missed although just a short block off busy touristy Government street and just a block over from the Empress hotel. 10 Acres has their own farm so many of their menu items are quite fresh. They also have their own livestock for freshness and more ethical meats and poultry. There's a... More

We went there for the first time, had not booked a table so had to sit in the Pub part. I was cold everytime the door opened and had to put my coat on. The fish & chips were edible but not great, people were loud. The dining part looked lovely with Christmas lights and cosy fire.Do not know if... More

We were so excited to try this new restaurant out and opted for the bistro rather than the kitchen since the menu looked more interesting for our group. I was really surprised and disappointed in the minimalist decor and bad lighting. Our table by the window had horrible fluorescent street lighting blaring in our eyes, and no warm overhead lighting... More

We went here as we were staying just across the street. It had a number of rooms as well as the outdoor seating area. One of the rooms appeared very loud and lively. As we were just looking for a quiet meal we were fortunate to be seated in a quieter section. The food was very good and the service... More
