From January 20 to February 5, 2023 foodies can indulge in some of the Greater Victoria’s finest restaurant offerings by choosing from a $25, $35, $45, $55 or $65 set menu at more than 40 restaurants.

Participating hotels are also offering special Stay in Town room rates, with options available at $139, $159, $179, $199 and $259.

The annual event is produced through a partnership between Destination Greater Victoria and the B.C. Restaurant and Foodservices Association (BCRFA).

“Chefs and restauranteurs in Victoria continue to push the culinary scene forward making Victoria a destination of choice for foodies,” said Paul Nursey, CEO of Destination Greater Victoria. “Greater Victoria’s restaurant sector is diverse, eclectic and boundary-pushing – a true reflection of the community.  With more restaurants per capita than any other city in Canada, the choice is tremendous for locals as well as those visiting our community.”
