It should come as no surprise that French culture has had quite an impact on all of Canada, even as far as Victoria. This oceanfront town is filled to the brim with charming French bistros and restaurants. For a one-of-a-kind dining experience, head to Le Petit Chef-Victoria at Fire + Water Grill. With the help of a projector pointed toward your table, you’ll get to watch a tiny French cartoon chef put your meal together right on your plate! And once the show is over, you’ll have a tasty plate of food, like bouillabaisse or crème brûlée, waiting for you.
If you’d prefer to take a culinary trip to French Wine Country, make your way to Stage. This trendy wine bar serves up some of the best whites and reds in town, including sauvignon from Touraine and Chardonnay from Chablis. And let’s not forget to mention the ever-changing menu, which features the best ingredients from local farmers and purveyors.
