Just Go. My special curry prawns were heaven. Gorgeous with a glass of Chardonnay. The kids loved their massive burgers and excellent thick cut fries. Prices are exceptional.

Check it online, book in advance, walk through the rabbit's warren of halls, and be rewarded. Excellent variety without being overwhelming, although the choices invite return visits to try more. Perfect portions and presentation. Our group of four had different dishes, all flavourful. Service is of a high order, suitable for an upper end restaurant, but still friendly and not... More

The group of 15 (I believe) toured the Legislative building and then we all stopped for lunch - very delightful.

This was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. The atmosphere is rather reserved. Food was very good. Had soup and chicken curry spinach salad. My spouse had a fish special that was excellent.Prices for what is served are very good. Fun to see more of the Parliament building. To enter one must go through security, provide photo ID, then...

After living visiting Victoria this has been on my list for some time. Finally went for breakfast on a Friday morning. I enjoyed the steak and eggs. Both were done to perfection. We have tried several restaurants in James Bay over the years and dining room definitely stands out as the best breakfast we have had in a long time... More

More correctly called the Parliamentary Dining Room. Public access is limited at times when the politicians are busy yelling at each other during session. Good food for good value.

Great atmosphere and history on the walls - of course as the Government buildings dat back to 1890's. Very friendly efficient serviceand great food at even better prices. Worth a trip. Having been born in Victoria took me decades to finally try it out. Will return

We visited the Dining Room in late November 2016. The decor is pleasant, the service is good and the prices are reasonable.

Dining at the Legislature is a wonderful experience when you have out of town guests. You can go on an organized tour of the Legislature before or after lunch. We did our own thing and our guests found the Legislature most interesting. The dining experience is, well an experience. We took the elevator down with an escort, cleared security and... More
