Located in Victoria's funky Fernwood neighborhood, this relaxed bistro features a lively bar with a well-chosen offering of wines by the glass, along with a small-plate menu of house-made specialties. Chef Amanda-lee Chesley has a delicate touch with spices and fresh, local ingredients, adding just a hint of fresh cilantro and ginger to the chipotle sauce that flavors Cortes Island mussels. Other favorite dishes include gnocchi stuffed with house-cured lamb bacon, halibut cakes with red pepper sauce, and panko-crusted poached egg with grilled asparagus. Irish-bred Stephen Quigley is the convivial mixologist behind the bar who makes every night feel like a party.
