Vancouver Island Bucket List - What to do on Vancouver Island
Fine Dining Evening Culinary Tour | Victoria
Fine Dining Evening Culinary Tour | Victoria

Release your inner gourmand on this sophisticated progressive dinner tour that visits four exceptional restaurants in downtown Victoria. Indulge in local haute cuisine in stunning dining rooms with four BC wine pairings.

Our first two courses are at beautiful farm-to-table restaurants next to the inner harbour. Both serve sophisticated appetizers using locally foraged ingredients. We will raise a glass of BC bubbles to start then move on to a choice of either white or red BC wine.

Our main dish is at L’Apero Wine & Cheese Bistro. Here we sample a traditional Alpine dish called Raclette. A half wheel of cheese is heated up and scraped on to your plate on a bed of potatoes, meats, and salad.

A short walk later takes us to the breathtaking restaurant inside the famous Empress Hotel. We will end the tour with a decadent dessert from the stunning Q At The Empress Restaurant paired with a local port-style desert wine. A great place to linger longer or stroll along the harbour promenade.
