I am a Victoria resident and have had the privilege of dining at the Chalet numerous times over the past 25 years or so. It is my 'go-to' restaurant; the one I 'go to' if I have something to celebrate, and the one to 'go to' if friends are in town visiting. The water view is spectacular, the staff courteous and ever-so-helpful, and the food is superb. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming, with formal dress visitors rubbing shoulders with jeans-and-loafers locals. Table settings are classically beautiful, and many menu items are locally sourced; add to that *THE* best wine and liquor list! I will say this is probably not the place to visit if you follow a 'fad' diet, or wish to pinch pennies; the Chalet is an experience to be savoured and lingered over (but do bring a sense of humour for Pierre, and prepare to be welcomed by the resident Golden Retriever). Lastly - I am NOT 'family', nor was I paid or otherwise compensated for writing this review. The Chalet is the best - period - and I look forward to many more visits in the years to come.
