This waterfront Victoria restaurant just dropped a new summer menu you need to try (CONTEST)


Are you ready for patio season in Victoria? ’Cause we know we are!

And we’re here to let you know that one of Victoria’s hottest patios has not only opened for the season, but they’ve launched a brand new summer menu, too.

LURE Restaurant & Bar has a stunning location nestled in the Inner Harbour where they serve up lively, fresh and local tastes daily.

Featuring some of the best views in all of Victoria, you can enjoy breakfast, brunch, all-day and happy hour menus featuring simple delicious selections of sharing plates and full entrées with a creative local twist using the freshest finds from Vancouver Island’s backyard.

Stop by LURE after a stroll along the waterfront or park your bike and partake in their daily Happy Hour—the possibilities are endless with such an incredible location steps away from the bustling Inner Harbour.

With unique and delectable items like their all-new Watermelon Poke (our personal favourite!) to comforting classics such as their Braised Short Rib, LURE’s menus showcase the unique culinary diversity that is sourced from Vancouver Island growers, artisan food and beverage producers, and local waters.
