What people are saying about 10 Acres

Trip Advisor Review for the Bistro

"Farm to Table gem coupled with excellent service"

August 28, 2018

If one likes locally grown produce prepared in a manner that highlights the subtle flavours of the produce, this is the place.
The different types of tomatoes found on the sourdough bruschetta was highlight for me. Four of us also shared half a roast chicken, trout together with salad. The mixed fruit crumble had a tang to it. The crumble was well toasted, dry and not oily unlike any crumble I have tasted.

"10 out of 10 for 10 Acres Kitchen"

September 28, 2018

My husband and I had dinner at 10 Acres Kitchen during a recent stay in Victoria. We were drawn in by the smaller plate options. We had had a larger lunch so we were looking for a smaller dinner. We shared the Charcuterie for Two and the Melon Salad. Both were simply outstanding. The Melon Salad was thinly sliced pieces of melon with prosciutto and arugula and a light citrus dressing and toasted hazelnuts. It was so fresh and delicious. The Charcuterie board had a selection of meats, relishes, a liver pate and crostini. Again, so tasty and fresh. Highly recommend 10 Acres if you are in Victoria.

Review for the Kitchen

"Outstanding Food and Service"

Having visited Victoria for a number of years now, we make an effort to try new spots and this was well worth it. Service was attentive and knowledgeable, sommelier was great. Food is created with obvious care and passion. The entire night was fantastic. If this level of dining isn't desired, perhaps check out "the Commons" and the "10 acre's Cafe"...same owners and I'd assume same level of delivery. Amongst the best dining experiences in Victoria.

Trip Advisor Review for the Kitchen

"Entire Experience Was Perfect"

March 2017

The idea of farm to plate is very appealing, and it raises your expectations when the fare has its entire journey under control of the same people. The 10 Acres Kitchen did not disappoint in the slightest. The food was perfect, really well presented, the portion size just right, and the staff were amazing. We went for a "BC" type experience, they suggested local wine to pair with the seafood we ordered and were always there whenever we needed anything. All bases were covered, we felt really well treated.

"What a great restaurant in the heart of Victoria!"

November 2016

Our waiter was absolutely fantastic! He was very attentive, engaging, kind, prompt, and helpful. I had the Salmon Wellington, whereas my partner had the chicken. They were so flavorful, succulent, and delicious. We savored every bite of what was on our plates. The oysters as well as the caesar salad were just great! The ambiance of the restaurant was also nice, especially for a night out with your loved one of a dear friend. I would not hesitate to return there if and when I visit Victoria again. Thanks for the wonderful dinner on our first night in town!

Trip Advisor Review for the Bistro

"My favorite place to eat in Victoria!"

July 2016

I am a fussy eater and always question the quality of food used. Not here!

I have entertained a large group as well as had a quiet dinner with friends here. The food is grown/raised on their own farm locally and you can tell that the chef is passionate about leaves the kitchen.

The Mahoneys Review for the Commons

"Excellent for both lunch and dinner!!"

July 6, 2016

My husband and I had lunch on the outdoor patio and thoroughly enjoyed the oysters and cheese board. Cam was an enthusiastic server and updated us on the Commons farm and use of all local veggies, fruit and meats. We booked dinner for the next evening, and again, had a fabulous meal sharing many of the appetizers with both food and pairing recommendations from both Patrick and Adriano. A fabulous dining experience!!!

Maureen Review for the Kitchen

"A Favourite Spot in the City"

July 2016

We had dinner at the Kitchen for a special occasion on Saturday night. The meals were excellent; three of us ordered the halibut and my husband had a salad and the gnocchi which was outstanding. The vegetables from 10 Acres were superb, and the halibut was delicious. 10 Acres Bistro has long been one of our favourite spots in the city and we are now keen to try the Commons. Highly recommend any of the 10 Acres locations
