Dine around & Stay in town is Victoria’s most anticipated foodie event, by Destination Great Victoria. Dine Around & Stay in Town 2021 takes place from January 14 to February 7, 2021. Experience Victoria’s thriving, diverse culinary scene and enjoy special offerings from over 50+ restaurants with set-price, three course menus. Victoria’s hotels also will join in the fun and offer accommodations at reduced prices.

Enjoy three-course dinner special prices from $20, $30, $40, $50 and $60 per person.

We find this event a great opportunity to try many of Victoria’s best restaurants for affordable prices. Victoria has a very diverse culinary scene worth trying out! An opportunity to visit old favourites, try new one and of course, support local.

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, a few restaurants such as Ferris’ Oyster Bar and Grill, Finn's Restaurant, The Keg Steakhouse and Bar, Irish Times Pub, and Sticky Wicket Pub and Restaurant are offering their Dine around menus for take-out.
