I noticed some discussion on restaraunts in Victoria B.C. I always go to Kiplings located on the lower level of the Empress Hotel. The hotel also offers high tea, a curry restaraunt and a high end dining room. What they do with Kiplings is to take the "leftovers" (or cook greater quantites on purpose) from high tea and the curry place and add them to Kiplings already abundant buffet. There is a roasting bar and a fabulous array of entrees , salads and deserts. I think last summer I paid $15 canadian for the buffet with drinks extra. What a deal!Breakfast is good there too. If you are staying at the hotel it usually comes with the price of the meal. I have never tried lunch there.
