Downtown Victoria Hotels
Nestled within The Parkside Hotel & Spa, and spilling out onto the vibrant patio under a canopy of trees, is Tre Fantastico. Tre Fantastico was born from a passion for three drinks; ale, wine & coffee, with the idea to feature great food accompaniments & light meals with a commitment to house-made products & local food. Since 1993, Caffé Fantastico has been striving to provide the most exceptional coffees possible to their customers. This dedication to quality led to the expansion of Caffé Fantastico into the art of coffee roasting and now into local food and beverage offerings.
Downtown Victoria hotels are surrounded by Victoria's vibrant restaurant and culinary scene. A wide variety of fare includes local favourites, casual and family dining, pubs and wine bars and fine dining establishments. Experience local cuisine and west coast ingredients you won't find elsewhere.
Coastal waters surround Victoria and rich farming regions of the Saanich Peninsula and Cowichan Valley, while Victoria's gourmet chefs are blessed with an abundance of local produce right in their own backyards. Seafood, particularly salmon and shellfish, represents a mainstay of West Coast cuisine and can be bought a short walk from the hotel at Fisherman's Wharf. A number of wineries on Vancouver Island complement the gourmet experience. Victoria’s beer culture is alive and well, with microbreweries abound, as well as cider houses and distillers.
