French country cooking with local ingredients and reliable service excel at this hopping yet cozy brasserie, where tables are first come, first served. Chef Sean Brennan provides the standbys: moules, steak frites, endive salad with lardons, rich onion soup, but the plats du jour really show off his chops. For example, chicken paillard ($23) with chard, pancetta, and chanterelles in a Dijon... more

"High-quality" French cuisine built on "good ingredients prepared to mouth-watering perfection" earns Vancouver Island's Top Food honors for this "always-crowded" "true bistro" in Downtown Victoria; add in "exceptional", "knowledgeable" servers and a "relaxed" atmosphere, and fans have "no hesitation" about spending their "hard-earned money" here; P.S. no reservations, so be "prepared to wait."

In the overheated world of food fashion, it's so refreshing to find simple French bistro fare deftly prepared and served at reasonable prices. L'Ecole's menu changes daily, depending entirely on what comes in fresh from Victoria's hinterland farms. Because honesty is what's on offer at this warm, comfortable restaurant, preparation is simple, no big reductions or complicated jus, just... more

Never eaten here. That's because they appear unfriendly to single diners. When I went there was a queue ... however they didn't seem all that enthusiastic to accommodate me. The place has a tight-packed vibe of classy pretentiousness anyway.

A true culinary experience. Worth the wait (no resos). Steak frites are always an excellent option. Highly recommended.

Sean Brennan makes the best creme brûlée on the planet. Having done the "Creme Brûlée Tour of France", I feel qualified to make this judgement. ;-)

Formerly a Chinese school, Brasserie L'Ecole is an authentic French-style brasserie. The interiors of this place are a rich blend of reds and browns with a polished wooden floor and slate-topped bar complementing it. The food is simple and the menu is dotted with the common specialties. Apart from these, wines are also available. The food, the decor as well as the warmth of this eatery are what... more

The multiple award-winning Brasserie L'ecole occupies what was once a Chinese schoolhouse (hence the name), with 14-foot ceilings, dark woods, and warm red walls. It looks every inch the French brasserie, and has the food and wine to match. Chef Sean Brennan is something of a local celebrity. He uses primarily local produce and meats to create classic French dishes like duck confit, steak... more
