Looking for great French cuisine + live music in Victoria. Any recommendations?
(French, Jazz, Gypsy Jazz, Scottish, British Isles?)
Hi! For music, see the live music section … Herman’s Jazz Club is a good place to start with. As for French Cuisine … I don’t have too much experience with that … but I hear that Brasserie L’ecole is pretty good! The only downside is that they don’t take reservations.
