What Our Guests Are Saying

  • Spent a couple of nights at the Oswego Hotel and sought out their sunny patio for a relaxing meal. We eat out a lot and this was one of the best meals we've had in Victoria. They have a tidy menu of things that they do very well. The fish was outstanding, the chicken sandwich was unlike any other. If you like good food made with fresh local ingredients, you will love what they can produce. The service was Top notch too. Our waiter was passionate about what they put on the menu each day and how they go about sourcing their ingredients. I'm reluctant to review this as I fear we might not get a table when I visit next, but we will be back as often as we can to Bar 500.

  • Went for the Thursday night jazz yesterday (5-7 pm) and they had a guest vocal artist who was really amazing! Great dinner and cocktail too and beautiful room. I'll be back now that I know about it!

  • Very enjoyable meal. Three-course meal beautifully presented and every course delicious. Really appreciate the seasonal local grilled cabbage salad. The ravioli may be the best we've had. Nice work Chef and attentive servers.
