This is a good place in the middle of Butchart Gardens that serves several different meal options cafeteria style - an easy in and out option for families!

While it takes a while to get through the line, the meal was good. People didn't know what they wanted and took extra time slowing things down. We had no trouble finding a table and it was an enjoyable time. Food could have been a little warmer is all, but very tasty!

Although the food was good, both soups were only luke warm & my meatballs in the spaghetti weren't hot either. I would have appreciated them being hot as it was a cold night.

First visit to the Blue Poppy at the Butchart Gardens. Had the turkey dinner. Excellent meal. It was hot, very flavourful, and served with a great vegetable mix. The staff were very friendly and efficient. We will definitely be back!

Pretty good sandwiches and other entrees. If you happen to be at the gardens at lunchtime and want to eat before you leave, this is a good choice, but it’s nothing special.

The Blue Poppy Restaurant is one of several restaruants at Butchard Gardens. The restaruant is set-up cafeteria style, but with a more elaborate menu. We opted for salads that were nice and fresh and filling. It was a good choice for a hot day. The dining room is pleasant with open windows.
