A brand new German/Swiss-inspired restaurant is opening downtown Victoria tomorrow and you’re invited to celebrate the grand opening!

Eva Schnitzelhaus, the brand new addition to Victoria’s Chinatown district, offers new interpretations of classic German, Swiss and Austrian dishes for the public to enjoy. 

The 600 square foot restaurant is bright and spacious, seating 38 diners with an interior designed to feel like the ambiance of an authentic ski chalet.

With exposed wood, brick and walls with vintage and contemporary framed posters and paintings you will feel as though you are about to hit the slopes without heading up the mountain!

At Eva, guests will be able to enjoy a variety of share plates, mains, and sides as well as a full happy hour snack selection. Highlights include Potato and Raclette, Beets and Sour Cream, Ham Hock and Sauerkraut, Pretzel and Mustard, and an Endive Waldorf Salad.

Eva’s menu will also include a full slate of schnitzels that include signature dishes, Schnitzel sliders and a vegan and vegetarian friendly Eggplant Schnitzel.

“We wanted to take German, Swiss and Austrian ingredients and recipes as people know them and give them a fresh new interpretation, while still honouring the traditional ways they are prepared, presented and representative of a celebrated culinary heritage,” said Maxime Durand, co-owner and executive chef at Eva Schnitzelhaus. 

“We want to keep the Eva dining experience light, casual, and great for conversations – creating a relaxing place where guests can come after work, for dinner, or to grab a late-night snack over a stein or two.”

The perfect winter comfort food.
