This is why I love Chowhound - on a recent trip to Victoria I followed up on a Chowhound recommendation and had dinner at Zimbri's. It was excellent, as was the service! And, I even bought a couple fo chocolate croissants for the following day's breakfast at the little bread place across from Zimbri's - they hit the spot! I never would have found either place without your recommendations.
I only wish there was a Chowhound hotel section. I stayed at the Days Inn - what a dump!
