Hi there!

My name is Charlotte, and as an avid food enthusiast, I am super excited to start this restaurant-reviewing  journey! Living in Victoria, BC is the perfect environment to nurture a food-lover’s appetite for eating out. I initially came to Victoria, as many young people do – in pursuit of a university education – but found myself equally enraptured in the culinary scene! There are so many restaurants in Victoria that I love, and there are many more that I am looking forward to trying.

While this blog is aimed primarily at the traditional “restaurant review”, I am planning on including other food related posts; such as food product reviews, grocery store reviews, and possibly interviews of fellow food enthusiasts. I also may occasionally throw in a more personal post here and there to introduce you to my tastes! You can also refer to the About Me page for more information about me 🙂

Please email me if you have any comments, questions, or suggestions! I am more than open to ideas of places or products to review. My email address is charlotte@victoriaresturantreviews.com.

Happy eating!

  1. This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I enjoy seeing websites that understand the value of providing a prime resource for free. I truly loved reading your post. Thanks!

    You’re so right – the dining scene in Victoria is growing and changing so much. Like you, I came to go to UVIC, and then just stuck around. Most of my dining choices are downtown – where I work – and are faves because they’re really, really good, and relatively inexpensive. Can I add to your list?! The Lotus Pond (buddist vegetarian buffet). The Amigos de Puerto Vallarta taqeuria trucks – there’s one behind the Salvation Army downtown most days. Shima Sushi. Pho Vy. And Foo – although their menu is limited, so there’s only one ? vegetarian choice. But, if you consider pork belly a food group, its the place to go! Hmmm…. pork belly…..

    I’m looking forward to reading about your adventures!

    ps – don’t always trust your spell checker – it should be palate, not palette.

      Thanks Karen!

      I am all over your recommendations – Amigos de Puerto Vallarta is definitely a destination I have in mind! I LOVE Lotus Pond, as well as Shima. And I was at Pho Vy about a month ago – my omnivore friends adored the soups. As for Foo, they do have a few veggie options; though I think my boyfriend would be sold on the pork belly!

      Will change the typo – thanks for letting me know.
