Dessert at Bon rouge Fifty-seven restaurants, 25 hotels and three and a half weeks to take part! Dine Around and Stay In Town is in full swing. Back for its ninth year, locals and visitors alike flock downtown to take advantage of the excellent food and room deals on offer. Available until March 10, we have a great selection of hotels offering fabulous rooms at $79, $99 or $129 per night. You’re bound to find a rate to suit you! Add on a three-course Dine Around meal for $20, $30 or $40 and you’re all set. Here are a few room deals to think on:
  • Strathcona Hotel ($69 - $99 per night) With lively nightlife, a convenient downtown location and free continental breakfast, what’s not to love? Upgrade to a Deluxe Queen ($79) and get a $20 gift certificate for the Sticky Wicket pub below.
  • The Union Club ($99 - $199 per night) Revel in the opulence of a 19th century classic club – rich mahogany, leather-bound books and comfortable winged armchairs.  Relax in a Deluxe Queen room for the night, take complimentary breakfast in the McGregor room, then step out the door to enjoy downtown!
  • Hotel Grand Pacific ($129) Located right on the waterfront, you’re in the heart of it all. Unwind in a beautifully-appointed Queen room with your own private balcony and treat yourself to West Coast Afternoon Tea in the Pacific Restaurant for $38 per person.
Here’s some food for thought about our Dine Around participants:
  • John's Place, a Victoria institution for 27 years, is offering a mouth-watering $20 menu. Incorporating appetizers and entrees from Greece to New Delhi, finish up with a classic North American favourites such as decadent Chocolate Brownie Sundae or Chocolate Coconut Cream Pie.
  • Situated in Swan’s Hotel, the Wild Saffron Bistro has a deliciously creative $30 menu on offer. Sample the Broccoli and Avocado Soup with crème fraîche, follow with a comfort food favourite of Smoked Baby Back Ribs and top it off with one of their three sweet treats.
  • To sample the best of the local surf (and some turf too), check out Pescatores. Their $40 menu is bound to be a hit with seafood lovers – tender crab, prawns, shrimp and halibut are all on offer. Finish off the feast with an indulgent Ganache Brûlée and Vanilla Custard. Perfect!
