The Butchart Chronicles : August 3, 2014

“A dining room in a tourist attraction?”

We went to the gardens and were not disappointed in any way. Lovely to breathtaking at every step. Now it is time for dinner. Well, there is a dining room. Don't expect much, but that is OK. Lovely spot, probably passable food. Boy, were we wrong!

We had 5 dishes in the course of the evening, each better than the last. Have the Scallop appetizer for sure, One of the most beautiful plates I have ever seen, and tasted even better. The potato cheddar soup was perfect, with really fine aged cheddar, and not heavy. The tuna salad was maybe the best salad mix imaginable, and the romaine salad was every bit as good. The service staff was informed, happy and eager to make evening perfect.

Very solid wine list, and beautiful desserts, too. All in all, quite a treat.
