Love the tuscan menu

They have a 4 course tuscan menu each night, its a few dollars less on weekdays (under $20). I've had it over 10 times now and have loved it each time. Great service as well. On the main menu I am hooked on the bacon wrapped prawns with the mango salsa. Make a reservation on weekends or be prepared to wait...although its worth the wait!

Fabulous all around

We went to Med Grill Royal Oak (also called Villages Med Grill) because the Med Grill Mosaic in Victoria refused to honour a perfectly valid gift card, even though we had ascertained the value of it on their website, and the card clearly said it was valid for all locations. Instead of accepting the card, they sent us directly into the arms of their competition, Med Grill Royal Oak, where everything was fabulous, and I do mean everything. Apparently, the two restaurants have had an unpleasant split and Med Grill Mosaic's response is to send customers away to their ex-partner. What savvy business sense!! Maybe that's why they split.

Anyway, go to the West Saanich Rd. location. You won't be sorry.

Routine Dining Experience
February 02, 2014

This was our first visit to this nearby restaurant; we weren't overly impressed.It was a Friday night, approximately 2/3rds capacity and the noise almost deafening so that it was impossible to carry on a conversation.Moreover with only a small candlelit holder on the table it was near impossible to read the relatively small print of menu items which in our... more

Love their Tuscan Table 4 course special
January 02, 2014

This is a favourite restaurant of my friends and mine, especially for their 4 course Tuscan table 4 course specials. We have always enjoyed the various courses and this time especially enjoyed the Cranberry pecan salad and both dessert choices.

My party of four went to the Med Grill and were not disappointed. We were promptly greeted and seated and upon the arrival of our server, everything went like clockwork.
We all ordered the Tuscan Menu, $23.99, a four course extravaganza. I initially thought there would be too much food but the menu was balanced and properly portioned so we... more

We have frequented this restaurant many times over the years, partially because it's close and easy to walk to.. That being said, when the kitchen is on its game the food is fantastic, The Tuscan Plate is a monthly special that is well worth the money ($18.99) and includes starters, mains and pudding. I am not a fan of the... more

July 20, 2013

Med Grill over rated. The food is a 5 out of 10. It is loud and the place needs a renovation. The service is slow and the food takes forever to come to the table. I would not recommend this restaurant. We had made reservations and when we got there they made it for the wrong day.

nothing remarkable
July 19, 2013

Service was fine and food palatable but unremarkable. The Tuscan plate 4 courses were not plated in a particularly appealing way and there was a sense that whoever had done it had been doing it far to long to care. Serving portions were also light, especially the antipasto.

Great deal and good food
July 17, 2013

We went here on a Monday night with a group of girlfriends to catch up. The 4 course tuscan table was a great deal, $18.99 for 4 courses (Its more on the weekend). Great choices and good portion sizes. Drinks and service were good too. Its been awhile since I was here, but would definitely go back again soon!
