A small, intimate restaurant in the Oak Bay Beach Hotel (Victoria,BC). Small menu but top quality food. I had a great steak, perfectly prepared and my wife enjoyed her cod dish. As usual, we cross shared and both gave two thumbs up to the evening. This is a fairly new hotel but the decor is old world European. Very well executed but not my favourite style. Of particular note was the friendly and competent service. Our server was very helpful and sincere. We’ve had breakfast there previously and really enjoyed that, as well. Bright, spacious underground parking and available electric car charging! Both appreciated. MoreOpenTable Diner -
When in Victoria, one must have tea! The assortment of sandwiches was a delectable and delicate combination of flavors (yum, smoked salmon and dill!). The scones were a particular highlight, surprisingly light and melt-in-your-mouth appetizing. Most of the food items are made in-house according to our server. This was a great place to dine before our Victoria Clipper sailing (the terminal is across the street), and a worthy nearby alternative to tea at the famed Empress Hotel if their price point is far out of your pocket.

We arrived earlier than our reserved time but the waitress very kindly let us in. It was noted in the reservation that it was for a birthday but there was no acknowledgment though...Nevertheless, the food was amazing and the ambience was superb. Thank you ❤️ MoreOpenTable Diner -
Very good service - attentive and discreet. Earl's went out of their way to accommodate my request for a quiet dining area for my elderly father and young son. We were given the private dining room right. Food was also wonderful. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Great food and service! Best seafood on the island! MoreOpenTable Diner -
From start to finish everything went very well. Our table request was accommodated, and our reservation allowed for a seamless entrance. Our courses were spaced out perfectly (props to our server), and the food was cooked perfectly (props to the cooks)! Our waiter was friendly, and was a great server. MoreOpenTable Diner -

I can't decide what was better - great service or an amazing food. Combined both together this was an exceptional experience. Ordered food came out timely, the server and manager (Bob) were both very pleasant and friendly. Highly recommend this place for a lovely night! MoreOpenTable Diner -
would have been nice to be seated by the fireplace where nobody was sitting and it was available. No candle lit at our table even though it was available. Window was blocked out by plywood. No live music or anything to develop interest. Staff looked bored.Food was good. Service was adequate. MoreOpenTable Diner -

The Village Taverna pays tribute to my family’s heritage. I’ve sought to bring the flavours, the quality and the experience of the Greek kitchen to the Cook St. Village. At its heart, The Village Taverna is built on the concept of “filoxenia”— legendary Greek hospitality. Open and inviting, I opened The Village Taverna so that everyone could taste the flavours of Greece in a fun, yet relaxed atmosphere. We source the best possible ingredients and cook the best possible food. At The Village Taverna we select our vendors carefully, and we stay as local as possible. We look for the best food produced with best practices. And if we can't find something essential that’s up to our standards, we make it ourselves. From scratch.More
