Greater Victoria may have the highest number of restaurants per capita in the country, but there is always room for more.

So far, at least three new restaurants have opened in the region in December.

Popeyes Louisana Kitchen Inc.

The island’s first Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, a roast chicken known as an American multinational chain, opened its doors in Saanich.

The new fast food restaurant has had regular line-ups at its doorstep since it opened, and manager Bilal Muhabat told Black Press Media that it has been very well received so far at its Tuscany Village location on McKenzie Avenue and Shelbourne Street.

Stone Floor Pizza Co.

The Doubletree Hilton Hotel in downtown Victoria at 777 Douglas St. is now the home of the Stone Ground Pizza Company.

The Italian-style restaurant has a stone-baked pizza oven and is located next to the new Starbucks coffee shop near the hotel’s main entrance.

General Manager Morgan Watson said the restaurant seating capacity can be upgraded to Starbucks if necessary. An ordering system with a QR code also enables smooth service, he added.

“If one person wants a Starbucks coffee while the other favors a glass of wine, our ordering system can do it,” said Watson.

L’Apero wine and cheese bistro

A new wine and cheese bar has arrived at Blanshard St. 1028 just in time for the winter holidays.

The new downtown bistro offers restaurants, catering, take-away cheese boards and workshops for cheese and wine lovers. There is also a delicatessen section with fine cheeses and sausages.

Owners Guillaume Kieffer and Page Loten said their goal is to bring people together, share good times and discover amazing pairings.

“We wanted to give Victoria’s restaurant scene a European flair. The kind of casual restaurant where the staff knows you by name and you are encouraged to stop and chat over a glass of wine, ”they said.
