Impeccable. Delicious. Beautiful. Extraordinary. I'm a bit of a foodie and I just happened upon this restaurant after reading other reviews. It exceeded all expectations. The cocktail I had (something with BlackBerry and vodka) was smooth and aromatic. We had 3 appetizers. The tuna tataki,...More

We booked ahead to get a water view table and we were not disappointed. All of the team had been told we were celebrating and they all looked after us so well. Fabulous food and location.

Alaska ships out of Seattle are required to make a stop in Canada, so they make a cursory stop in Victoria. If you haven't been to Buchart Gardens go there. If you have, go to dinner at Aura. Walk off the ship straight onto Montreal...More

The cuisine and harbor views are both very fine but what places Aura a cut above any other restaurant we've been to in the last six months is the service provided by maitre d' Robin Bourne and his staff. We were just a couple of...More

Aura is not a big restaurant, so reservation is a good idea. Breakfast is pleasant, especially when a window seat is available. The mains at dinner were actually very good, and the wine menu decent. But we waited for 30 minutes before the server could...More

AURA waterfront restaurant + patioWitness the ultimate appetizer: Victoria’s sparkling inner harbour as experienced from AURA waterfront restaurant + patio. Local, modern, west coast, Pacific Rim cuisine created by Executive Chef Takashi Ito and his team. Artisan wines and distinctive cocktails all served up with a side order of fresh ocean air, sailboats and waves. Stone underlit bar, leather sofas and lamplit tables, all part of this casually elegant dining room. At AURA you will feel at ease in jeans or in pearls or a bit of both.So come and dine different.
