With the first day of summer less than two weeks away, a list for Canadians who love to dine outdoors includes five Greater Victoria restaurants among the best to do so nation-wide.
OpenTable released its annual Top 100 list of Canada’s Best Restaurants for Outdoor Dining Tuesday.
The Fishhook – Mermaid Wharf, Glo Restaurant and Steamship Grill and Bar of Victoria cracked OpenTable’s Top 100, along with The Beach House Restaurant in Saanich and The Dining Room at Buchart Gardens in Brentwood Bay.
OpenTable says the top-100 list is generated solely from diner reviews from the end of April last year to the end of this past March.
Overall scores are made up of unique data points, such as overall diner rating, user klout, total number of reviews and regional overall rating.
OpenTable says qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the total number of tags where “outdoor dining” was selected as a special feature.
