About the restaurant
Ugly Duckling takes its inspiration from the intersection between Coastal BC's magical landscapes and the rich cultural heritage of North America’s oldest Chinatown. We offer experiential dining built around two promises: to serve you only those things which we have made by hand; and to work really, really hard to make you smile. We can't wait to welcome you.

About the restaurant
Dinner:
Tues-Thurs 5:00-9:00
Friday-Saturday 5:00-10:00
Reservations recommended but not required.

For over 24 years, Zambri’s has been fortunate enough to serve Victorians Italian soul food paired with all the best wines of Italy. We’ve grown as Victoria has grown, but at our heart, we have remained true to our roots. Many years of working with local farmers, being a contributing member of our local community, caring for the environment (we are carbon neutral), hosting Italian wine dinners and always making sure that our vision for our food stays true, have brought us to the place we are now.
Join us for dinner, come for one our monthly wine dinners, or have your next event in one of our gorgeous private spaces... Come see for yourself!

About the restaurant
The Café Brio, located in Victoria, has been a local favorite for twenty six years, serving up a rustic, Italian inspired menu. Focusing on regional products, Café Brio led by multi awarded Chef Sam Harris selects the highest quality ingredients from local sources to be used in authentic, creative dishes.

At Café Brio, everything is prepared in house. Pasta favorites include gnocchi with roasted leeks, parmesan cream and basil purée, Spaghettini with tomato, garlic, basil, olive oil and parmigiano and also our wild mushroom risotto. From the Sea enjoy seared scallops with peroxides, delicata squash, carmelo and bacon anchovy vinaigrette or our local fish feature. Lastly the Parry Bay Lamb feature from our friends out in Metchosin is an absolute must.

The wine list is extensive with input from multiple Sommeliers on staff always excited to share their new favourite bottle in our unique and cozy dining room.

We had delicious salads and followed up with halibut, meatballs and tagliatelle. It was all a very high standard and the service was attentive and very informative. We will be going back regularly. Great wine too!

The service was fantastic and ambience is really quite nice. They have 3 different seating areas each with its own feel to it so you can get a different experience each time you visit or pick what is most to your liking. The menu has a good variety of choices, with prices comparable to other similar restaurants in the area. The portions are of fair size, especially for the ladies, but if you have someone in your party with a slightly bigger appetite then expect you might need to order an appy or dessert with the meal. The only disappointment about their food is the French fries... They have chosen shoestring, which look great in promo and insta photos but never taste good more than 3 minutes after being served as they so quickly cool and harden. Everything else we've tried here recently (burgers, salads, chicken bites, pasta) has been good.

From the second we saw the view from the restaurant we knew our time at Callisto would be outstanding. Our server Chelsey answered all our questions and more, her knowledge of the menu items was impressive. The meal was delicious and cooked to perfection. We will return!
