Had driven by this venue over a year ago and finally decided to try it out. We were not disappointed. I was surprised at how busy this place was. Hardly an empty table. The restaurant itself looks like a large, old chalet...as the name suggests. It is definitely dated and has a dark and woody interior with walls of windows... More

This just became one of my favorite restaurants. First class in all respects - setting, room, service and food. Best restaurant in a recent week long tour of the island. The seafood was awesome and they offered sweetbreads which are unusual in western Canadian menus which were well prepared.

Very special location and incredible setting...can only imagine how beautiful the garden is in early spring/summer. Now to the meal. We both started with the lobster bisque..OMG...so flavourful and loved the presentation sitting on a bed of maple leaves. For our main we both... More

The setting is fantastic and it must be stunning in summer. The welcome was warm and it's by no means modern or high end when it comes to decor and I think it would take the family personal feel and touch to the place if that was altered. The food and service was excellent. An extensive wine list and it... More

Eleven us drove out from Victoria to cellbrate my wife's special birthday ##. We left Victoria in the rain and by the time we arrived the sun was peeking thru the clouds painting a lovely view of the ocean and grounds. The dining room and tables are laid out with beautiful place settings, white table cloths and gorgeous flower arrangements... More

We ate herd one evening in the garden with my wife's sister and brother-in-law Asia was the last night of their 5 day visit with us.

Deep Cove Chalet offers an elegant "Old World" dining experience in a gorgeous, tranquil setting on Deep Cove. Even a drive out from Victoria affords a lovely transition. All the old favourites are here- foie gras, coq au vin, vichyssoise, crime brûlée, etc. The menu is extensive- something for all tastes. Service is appropriately leisurely. The wine list is very...

Four of us enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Deep Cove Chalet with a sunset view across the bay. Service is gracious and attentive. Our waiter was helpful with menu choices and extremely polite. Every choice of appetizer, salad, and entrée was met with rave reviews. Presentation is very nice and flavors were wonderful. The only small complaint was one fish... More
