In what way is the parking bad?
It is a tight lot to maneuver about in and the spots are narrow inviting door dings.

This thread got me thinking.
Are there any "fine dining" restaurants left in Saanich?
Know it all.

Go and have a look at all the paint scrapes on the concrete barriers. The access and egress is terrible, there are low walls that drivers find very difficult to guage especially at the entrance/exit by BlockBuster. The parking stalls were designed for honda civics and mini's not full size cars or pickups.
I rarely go there but when I do I always go into the underground parkade which is mostly empty because so few people know about it.
The engineering design for vehicles has to one of the poorest I have ever seen. It might have looked good on paper and on the computer but in application it sux!

The only good thing about Tuscany Village is the parking. I get pretty much the perfect spot every time I go there.

Years ago before they installed street lamps, Cattle Point was the place to park, but you had to get there early to stake out the best spot.

I was just poking around Google Maps looking for restaurants near where I'll live/work in Victoria when we move (in three weeks, yay!)

Where else should I try?

Your wish is my command. Overall, I've been pretty happy with Victoria's restaurant scene. Where else should I try?
Ulla. Interesting, well-made food at decent prices.
Aura. Competent food, spectacular view. Shame about the wine list.
Paprika. Properly-made bistro fare.
Baan Thai. Not great, but consistently decent.
Sizzling Tandoor. Much better Indian than I was expecting given all the warnings I received about the awful Indian in Victoria.
Little Thai Place (Royal Oak). A step down from Baan Thai.
Romeo's. I like their pizza, but don't consider ordering anything but.
Med Grill. 1988 called, they want the menu back.
Fireside Grill. Meh.
Azuma Sushi. ditto.
Fonbo. Americanized Chinese, but good for what it is.
5th Street Bar and Grill. It's cheap, and better than chains serving similar food, but that's about all its pluses.
Glo Europub. Some of the most wretched food I've ever been served.
Osaka Sushi. Really bad sushi.

If you were planning on hoisting an Applebee’s Bahama Mama or Colada Swirl after midnight you may be in for a long wait.
At a Monday night meeting of Saanich Council’s Committee of the Whole, Councillors sent Applebee’s away empty handed after the McKenzie Avenue restaurant requested an extension of their liquor service until 1 a.m.

The Marina in Oak Bay is still the best sushi in Victoria, hands down. David Nakayama is the **** when it comes to sushi in Victoria. Matt.

But if you are in a hurry, Fujiya on Shelbourne has good takeout.

Was your committee also involved in Tuscany Village?
