Med Grill Villages Pasta and Pizza

Menu: Good variety of interesting entrees and appetizers. Daily specials, as well as steak, pasta, seafood, salads, pizza, vegetarian.  Very artistic presentation of the food. The daily specials are always a good choice.  The Sangrias are the best in town!

Features: You can choose between the restaurant dining room, or if you prefer a more casual atmosphere, take advantage of the wrap-around patio. The restaurant is very quiet, but the patio facing the parking lot can experience some traffic noise from West Saanich Road.  The portion of the patio behind the restaurant is less sunny under the trees, but quieter. Serving staff give excellent service, and are very knowledgeable about food and drink.

Address: 4512 West Saanich Road, Victoria, BC V8Z 3G4

Phone: (250) 727-3444

Getting There: The Med Grill is a handy stop on the way from downtown to Butchart Gardens, if you are driving. Located out of the downtown area (5 miles or 8km north). Take Blanshard Street north out of Victoria and after it turns into the Patricia Bay Highway, take the Quadra Street exit. Turn left at the light crossing over the highway, and keep to your right as you join up with West Saanich Road. The Med Grill is only one minute's drive after you exit the highway, about 1km down the road. Abundant parking is available onsite.  If you miss the Quadra Street exit off the highway, take the next exit (Royal Oak).  Again, turn left, cross the highway on an overpass and turn left on Viewmont Avenue.  This street runs right into West Saanich Road and the Med Grill.

Taking a city bus would be complicated, but if you take a bus tour near dinner time (to Butchart Gardens, the Butterfly Farm, or the Centre of the Universe), ask the tour operator about using the Med Grill as a stopover.
