Horrible service, my husband and were ignored. Waited 15 minutes and watched customer who came in after us be greeted immediately by the waitress and given menus. Blatantly racist. Will never step foot in there ever again.

Dear dndedwards Thank you for your patience as we investigated your accusations. We have taken these accusations very seriously as Paul’s Restaurant has a diverse staff from many backgrounds. After a full review of our security cameras we were able to establish that this was not a case of racial discrimination but more a shortage of staff due to revolving... More

We have been eating at Paul's regularly since we moved back to Victoria 3 1/2 years ago. The staff are friendly and attentive and the service is usually good.

We ate here twice for breakfast while staying at Paul's Motor Inn. The menu was extensive, the food great and the service excellent and friendly. I had blueberry pancakes both mornings while my wife opted for eggs and bacon. Happy to recommend breakfast at Paul's

A broad selection on the menu every Tuesday for under $8. Where on Earth can you get a meal service for that price? The plates are slightly smaller. It is meant for seniors who don't eat too much and I find it just right for lunch. Two Thumbs Up.

So I stopped coming here for food a while back and my mom talked me into trying Paul's again, I am truly glad I did. The food is good and not greasy, the service is still great. About a year ago I had the worst meal after nasty meal and I am so happy that they changed whatever they did... More

Room was smelly, unclean, noisy air conditioner, dirty shower curtain needed changing, tap broke, and to top it off upon leaving we noticed a dead spider under the blanket. We stayed in the court area, so car is parked on other side of yard. Court yard was dirty. We won't be returning to this place.

Cozy restaurant with plenty of atmosphere. Been in business awhile. Love the kitchen; small, at the centre of things, organized and efficient. Friendly service, can be busy, good value.

We went for 9:00 am breakfast to Paul's on Sunday the 31st. It was a long weekend and the place was busy but no problem getting a seat. The style of the restaurant is 'diner' and all the fixtures were in good repair. The waitress was pleasant and speedy. The food was good and reasonably quick. I had a full... More

The morning breakfast demands eggs, meat, good spuds & toast, and this restaurant will not let you down. The helpings are massive, the scrambled eggs are as good as it gets, and the coffee is pretty darn good. However, if you're fussy about how your salmon is cooked, you better tell the server if you don't want it overdone. If... More
