Find stellar steaks in Victoria

Nothing compares to a good steak. A choice cut of meat, marinated to perfection and grilled to order is one of the best culinary experiences a person can have. Salads have their place in life (preferably next to a big juicy steak), but when it comes to a carnivore's delight, here's where to head to in Victoria.

Pescatore's Fish House

614 Humboldt St, Victoria, BC V8W 1A4

Pescatores is best known for their locally- ourced, delicious seafood, but they've also got some great turf to go with their surf. Choose from beef tenderloin or go for a dry-aged striploin; both are served with bordelaise sauce, choice of potato and farm vegetables. The Surf & Turf For Two includes a 14oz dry-aged ribeye with prawns, bearnaise sauce, farm vegetables and your choice of patio gratin or frites; we wouldn't blame you if you ordered it for one.

Steamship Grill & Bar

470 Belleville St, Victoria, BC V8V 1W9

Located in Victoria's picturesque Inner Harbour, Steamship Grill & Bar combines beautiful views with the latest in culinary delicacies, including delicious steaks. The restaurant’s head chef, Jim Romer, works with Vancouver Island products as much as he possibly can, so the menu is world-class with a distinctly local twist.

Marriott Victoria Inner Harbour

Fire & Water is located inside one of Victoria’s best hotels, so you can expect only the best in terms of food and atmosphere. Apart from specials, Fire & Water has one steak on their menu, a top sirloin, but it’s so good that it warrants a spot on any Best Steak list. Grilled to perfection and topped with a cabernet-sauvignon demi-glace, wild mushroom confit and three onion compote, there are few steaks this good anywhere in the wide culinary world, let alone right here at home.

Docks Grille The

203-1208 Wharf St, Victoria, BC V8W 3B9

The Docks has made a name for itself among steak lovers for one simple reason: they only use the absolute best meat they can find. Every single steak they serve is Alberta grain-fed and aged 35 days, giving the beef a tender and succulent taste that is simply impossible with lesser cuts. For an extra treat, enjoy your steak with a piece of fresh-caught seafood.

Brasserie L'Ecole

1715 Government St, Victoria, BC V8W 1Z4

Brasserie L’école features a rotating menu, but if you’re lucky enough to go when they have the steak frites, you are in for a treat. It's a favourite among locals, who appreciate that the chefs here give guests a choice of steak with their frites. Pair yours with Brasserie L’école's astounding wine list and you’ll have a French steak experience unlike any other in the city.

Nautical Nellie's Steak & Seafood House

1001 Wharf St, Victoria, BC V8W 1T6

Nautical Nellies is a Victoria landmark known not only for its fun atmosphere and stellar views, but for its consistently delicious food. Like many restaurants in Victoria, Nellies is a combination steakhouse and seafood restaurant, which means you can get fresh seafood and stellar steak all on the same plate. In fact, you could say surf and turf is Nellies’ specialty, so be sure to get some lobster tail with your perfectly grilled steak.

Vic's Steakhouse & Bar

345 Quebec St, Victoria, BC V8V 1W4

Steaks are taken so seriously at Vic’s that they have their own separate menu. Patrons not only choose what kind to have, but the way in which it’s prepared, including marinades and toppings. It’s truly the steak connoisseur’s ultimate experience, and the best place to go if you want to experience the full range of flavour one piece of meat can hold.

Japanese Village Restaurant

734 Broughton St, Victoria, BC V8W 1E1

The North American steakhouse is a time-honoured tradition, but The Japanese Village has put a delightful spin on the experience. Made with the same care and precision as other steakhouses, steaks here combine unique flavours and a variety of delicious Japanese staples for something completely different. If you want a great steak done differently, perhaps with some sushi on the side, this is the place for you.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
