10 Spots to Check Out in Victoria for Date Night


We love a good date night out and we love Victoria even more! Being our province’s capital, there is no shortage of sights to see here. So we rounded up some of our favourite restaurants to visit while hanging out in this wonderful city! Welcome to 10 spots to check out in Victoria for date night. 

Elephant Palace

A cute little place with an amazing cocktail list, you are sure to have an amazing time here. Come in and give your taste buds a great time. We highly suggest finishing the night off with the Penicillin Crème Brulée. It is absolutely to die for and pairs nicely with a classic negroni or some bubbles. 

Four to choose

What is great about 10 Acres is that there are actually four spots for your to check out based on what kind of day you’re having. They have the bistro, commons, pier, and the cafe all having fresh ingredients from their own farm. It really doesn’t get any better than this. Try out the bistro’s Half Roasted Duck. It is mouth watering and pair it with a local wine!

Italy here we come

Faro pizza is a great choice if you want to feel like you are in Italy! It is lovely to sit outside on the patio and feel the fresh air coming from the ocean. Located in the Oak Bay Beach Hotel, opt to make a mini getaway out of it and watch the sunset after dinner from the mineral pools! Faro’s cocktail list is amazing and we would absolutely suggest having the spicy paloma. It is delicious without being too spicy. Also pairs well with any of their pizzas.

How about Flights

Have an eventful afternoon stopping by Sea Cider Farm and enjoying flights of their fresh ciders. You can choose from a Short Flight (3 2oz glasses) or a Long Flight (6 2oz glasses) so you can find a favourite to sip while enjoying some light snacks available. The Foie Gras Parfait is one of our favourites here. They have also partnered with Toque Catering and Truffles Catering to provide picnics while you enjoy your tastings. Visit their website as these must be pre-ordered online.  

Smile for the camera

Not only do they have an incredible menu here but the decor of this gem is absolutely outstanding! It is an instagramers dream with big bright windows and pastel pink walls. Your brunch photos are sure to be epic. The breakfast sandwich is next level and you must have a soft & sparkly with it. 

We're all drooling

Who doesn’t love a wine night out on the town! With over 50 wines to choose from, you are sure to find something to awaken your taste buds. Their food menu is also top notch with items like Moules-Frites, Seafood Spaghetti Nero, and Gigantes Bean Cassoulet, your mouth is going to be watering all night long. They also have an amazing happy hour menu that can be shared from 4pm to 5:30pm & 9pm till cloing time. 

Did someone say Happy Hour

You had us at parmesan truffle fries and szechuan broccolini. Boom & batten also have a fantastic happy hour for you to enjoy that includes several options of beer, wine, cocktails, and food. We are mostly intrigued by the bubble sized sangria rojo. You’ll thank us later. Don’t forget to also stop by here for thier amazing brunch before 2pm, you won’t want to miss this.

It's time for a brewski

Sometimes you have to take a break and enjoy a few beers along the way. Stop in at Phillips Brewery and enjoy a couple of tasters throughout your adventurous day. 

While you are enjoying a few brewskies you can also catch some action that goes on behind the scenes. Their tasting room offers views right into where their beers are made. You can maybe learn something new. 

Spill the tea

Sometimes you just have to get a little fancy and pretend you are royalty. High tea at the Fairmont Empress Hotel is a real treat for treat for a great date night. They’ve been spilling the tea (if you will) for 113 years so you could say they are the professionals. Even their china is royal as it was a gift from her Majesty the Queen in 1939. Now if that doesn’t scream fancy, we don’t know what does. This will truly be a great experience.

Merridale Cidery

They have amazing pie

Who doesn’t love pie? If you don’t then that is great news for us because then we get more. Merridale Cidery is an amazing stop on a date night tour. They also have live music every Saturday from October 16th to November 20th but just be sure to reserve a spot because space is limited.

Like always we know we missed some amazing hidden gems and we want you to help us find them! So head on over to our Instagram to share, tag, and comment your favourite places.
