  • Neighborhood gem
  • Great for outdoor dining
  • Good for special occasions
Translated from Italian, FARO means “beacon” or “lighthouse”, a well-suited name for a location that has been a beacon for Oak Bay locals and visitors alike, where guests have gathered to enjoy Victoria’s most luxurious oceanfront accommodation, dining experiences and award-winning spa setting for over 90 years.

FARO is anchored by its Wood Stone pizza oven and a seasonally changing menu that includes handcrafted pizzas, a variety of fresh salads and small bites, cocktails and local wines, all to be enjoyed in a stunning modern room, at the tasting bar or on the outdoor patio with fire features.

Be aware that reserved seating is for inside only. Our patio is first come, first serve.

    Good: Burrata. Ok: Pizza (charred beyond edible in comment; paper thin and soggy; super chincy on toppings; tasty tho. Brisket or whatever was Rick hard tho tasty on mediocre and cold polenta. Bad: service was abysmal. I do not blame the two servers who were covering over 12 tables by themselves. However, neither looked at us or said anything like “I will be right with you” or “sorry for the wait.” They were frantic and frowning. No food runner. No busser. One hotel F&B manager was very nice and jumped in to be our waiter after we waited over 10 minutes to be greeted and have our order taken. Hostess was great and took on a table because no one was able to serve them. Clearly a scheduling or budgeting dysfunction that made it a horrible experience. Also, they didn’t use all the outside heaters available, so we were cold as were others. However, the food was just ok.

    The service was awesome and we really enjoyed the burrata. But the pizza we had was slightly burnt and too dry

    The location is beautiful, our server was attentive and knowledgeable, and the wood fired pizzas, salads and desserts are consistently delightful. 10/10

    We had a lovely dinner with my wife at Faro! We agreed it was the best authentic pizza in Victoria! Would go here again for the Funghi pizza!
