My husband and I recently returned from a winter getaway in Victoria to escape the Alberta snow for a little while. We soon discovered that we couldn't have picked a better time for our little getaway. From February 5 - March 4th this year, Victoria had their annual Dine Around and Stay in Town promotion on. http://www.tourismvictoria.com/dine/
This promotion offers 3 course meals from participating Victoria, BC restaurants for $15, $25, or $35 Canadian. Each menu suggest a great wine paring from a BC VQA winery. We tried several of these restaurants during our stay and found each one wonderful and a very good value. We had so much fun after each meal going through the menus and to decide where to try next. We only had a few "supper" times to take advantage of this promotion so we found that in order to go to all of the restaurants we wanted to try, we had to visit some of them at lunch time. I have read that "Victoria boasts the second highest number of restaurants per capita in North America" and they aren't kidding. Every place we tried was great and I would go back to in a heartbeat! This Dine Around and Stay in Town Promotion that is offered in Victoria was our 'Great Find' for our winter getaway.
