Christmas Dinner

My parents and I will be traveling to Victoria on Dec 24 - Dec 27 this year. I've been trying to find restaurants that offer a Christmas dinner, but not having any luck so far. I figured that since it is November now, I'd have more luck.

Any recommendations for places that have historically had nice Christmas dinners? Budget is not really a concern (looking for something under $125 pp before drinks).

If you are going to have a car, Butchart Gardens usually does a special Christmas dinner. We haven't gone but friends have and they enjoyed it very much. I don't see any info on their website as yet but you could contact them.

We'll be staying at Hotel Grand Pacific and will not have a car. We're currently planning to be at Butchart on Christmas Eve, so would prefer something else for Christmas dinner. We do not necessarily need to eat in our hotel (or a hotel nearby)...just looking for a really nice meal to enjoy Christmas!

I'd recommend the Harbour House Restaurant. I have been there twice for Christmas dinner and it is very nice. They have a couple of seating times and a set menu with a choice of entrees. Based on what I recall of the price from a couple of years ago, it will likely be around $50 per person.

The restaurant is located only a couple of blocks from the Hotel Grand Pacific,.
