Absolutely fantastic! Ate outside on the patio. Enchanting atmosphere with small boats passing by and gentle waves.
The food was so well prepared and each dish was delicious plus we got excellent service. Highly recommend this restaurant.
This was our first time visiting Aura and from the moment we walked in to the moment we left everything was fantastic! My fiance and I shared 4 of the small plates (tuna, halibut, chimichurri steak and braised beef short rib) the food was unreal. We also had a gin/prosecco drink that was delicious, a little on the smaller side but pretty par for the course. The service was fantastic. We are looking forward to returning.
Aura serves one of the best eggs Bennie in Victoria …not cheap, but delicious - coupled with fresh squeezed OJ and excellent coffee … a pretty great brunch. Order the Parmesan home fries as a side …and try the fried chicken and French toast!
Kind service. Great parking. Private with a view to inner harbour.
They went to great lengths to make a comfortable dining experience, especially as we carefully integrate back into restaurant life during covid.
Aura never disappoints! I highly recommend Aura, regardless of why you’re out for dinner.
It was our 5 year wedding anniversary. When we got married, we had eloped and went to Aura for dinner. To return 5 years later, be seated where we sat that night and be treated to 2 glasses of sparkling wine on the house was such a treat!
It was a perfect evening.
Our server David was lovely: there when you needed him, but otherwise let us enjoy ourselves on our own terms.
We we’re the last ones there and despite that’s usually when staff want you just out the door, the bartender went above and beyond. He heard me hiccuping from afar, mixed up a special concoction and surprised me with the remedy. He insisted I drink it while it was still fizzy (pretty sure it was butters and soda). Worked like a charm, no more hiccups! We saw him on the way out after he had begun cycling home and even checked in on me.
If you really want to get off the run of the mill sameness and experience a neww way of enjoying marvelously cooked amazing small plate dishes, this is the place. Go for it. The service is very good, the view is excellent, and you will always remember the experience.
As usual, food, ambience, view and service was excellent!
A fantastic experience at aura.
The food is beautifully prepared with texture, flavour and presentation at the core. The menu is small but wonderful.
A spectacular view of the harbour including the parliament and the Empress Hotel.
Would highly recommend going back. If you brought a party of 4 to 6 people or you could order everything on the menu and relish in each item.
I really enjoyed my time at Aura. Absolutely loved the drinks and the passion fruit ice cream was a treat
Very spread out with plexiglass between tables for Covid protocols. Food was great, especially the short ribs. Great window table.
Will definitely go back.
It was our Wedding day/weekend and they treated us like VIPs! Thank you for all the things you did to make the occasion even more special!
Made us feel special for our anniversary. Fantastic food and service
Great meal and attentive staff/manager taking care of you just to the right degree. Highly recommended.
Lovely small plate dining. Fabulous view of the inner harbour. Highly recommended for visitors to our beautiful city. Easy walk along the waterfront from downtown.
Enjoyed all of the small plates, though you will need to order quite a few as the portions are pretty small.
They make great cocktails and have a very approachable wine list.
Good food and service looking out on one of the best views in Victoria. It’s a bit chilly if it’s windy so wear a sweater.
Big Thank You!
Staff was The Greatest!
Superb Chef! Food Amazing! Personable + Welcoming.
Colleen was our Server...Attentive and Kind.
We'll definitely recommend and Be back. 👍
The view from their patio is stunning
Amazing view, great food & service. Loved everything!
Food and service was great. Patio heaters would have been more comfortable but they supplied blankets. Will be going again in warmer weather!!!
Kate was an amazing server - the meal was wonderful - view, service - all of it. Thanks!
Simon was very pleasant but on 2 occasions he removed dishes from the table without checking. One had sauce for our veggies. And the other was my cocktail. It might have been empty but I would expect an acknowledgement. Small plates were all delicious and would get all of them again. Two of us shared the beets, cauliflower/broccoli, Korean chicken and the duck breast.
Came for breakfast, food was awesome, service was extremely slow and not overly busy judging by the people enjoying meals when we walked thru.
Our table ordered coffee and waters, the waters arrived and were quickly emptied and the waiter commented that we are the most hydrated table. I’m sure it was in jest but he never returned to refill the water or my coffee, he promptly brought the bill for us to pay then disappeared, we waited for a good 10 minutes for him to return no other wait staff came around, we went to the front desk to pay our bill.
Beautiful setting, food was good, small portions so not a cheap and filling meal if your super hungry and the service from our waiter was not a good reflection of what it should have been for the price.
Neither my friend nor I found the waiter very personable. Also, we ordered a piece of grilled focaccia that was basted at the last minute with herbs and butter or olive oil to excess. We said something and the waiters response was “well that was done on purpose but if you want to to take it away I will.” Let’s just say the tone was a bit off putting.
The washrooms needed attention, the waitstaff was not very friendly, not quite abrupt but appeared stressed.
Hamburger was mushy
The food was excellent, we really enjoyed our dinner there although the service could have been better
Views breathtaking, beautiful place
Food is mediocre, good for appetizers and drinks not dinner
Unfortunately one waiter did ruined our night, he was not attentive and was not happy to take our order after we said no to bottle of wine!
My food came and my husband had to wait 20 minutes for his food, not acceptable but manager apologized and tried to make it better
The seafood eggs benny was divine! The French toast was also excellent!
Fantastic service, great food if you like tapas style eating. Overall a nice dining experience.
We’ve been there for our Wedding Anniversary and we absolutely loved it. Food was fabulous, Dave was really quick in serving us. I love freshly squeezed orange juice, not many places do that and that added to our experience. Brunch on a Saturday is fabulous that we’ve been to, we would definitely recommend this place to any fine dining lovers!
My grandson and I had a cozy setting, great food and a children’s menu,
Might go back with family. And surely recommend to friends
Brilliant atmosphere, fabulous views, creative food though at time overly thick batter on deep fried dishes, the beef short rib was divine
The staff at Aura made our night very special and memorable. Thank you team!
Didn’t realize it was tapas only. Tasty but expensive to fill up.
Was warmly welcomed upon arriving. Food came out fast and was delicious. It was my wife’s 50th birthday and I requested a table with a view and received a private corner of the restaurant with a great view!
I throughly enjoyed the tasting menu like concept. The flavor combinations had more to be desired if I was to compare it to Hanks, or No where. Service staff were great and friendly.
Beautiful view with amazing food and great service. Will definitely be going back!
A lovely staff that made us feel very welcome and taken care of.
Rather too snobby for its own good. Not much choices, almost no side dish to go with main. Too expensive for the quality of food. Really just pay for the view.
Excellent service. They were attentive to our two little kids and my youngest said her dinner was amazing. We felt safe in our private dining room which they suggested for the kids to be able to roam around more freely. Live that they had a kids menu so that made life easier so we could focus ok enjoying our own meals. Great view. The manager was so friendly that my daughters smiled when he came by and joked with them. Such a wonderful experience given we were missing being able to celebrate a 40th birthday with extended family and friends. We had a nice intimate dinner instead that was memorable. Appetizers were all flavourful and dynamic - clearly a highlight as we missed Asian food having moved to Victoria from Vancouver and appreciated the fusion options. Trout was cooked to perfection, but a bit too salty. Girls were happy with their kids meals - especially the desserts. Will return for another celebration and hopefully with friends and family one day soon!
