Six Greater Victoria restaurants have been named some of the best outdoor dining spots in Canada by OpenTable.

The Top 100 Restaurants for Outdoor Dining list was compiled based on diner metrics and over 1.1 million reviews from Feb. 1, 2023 to Jan. 31, 2024.

OpenTable analyzed diner ratings, the percentage of five-star reviews, the percentage of reservations made in advance and direct searches to narrow down the restaurants on the annual list.

The qualified restaurants were then ranked by the percentage of reviews for which “Outdoor Dining” was selected as a special feature.

The top 100 list includes 27 dining establishments in B.C., six of which are in Greater Victoria.

Boom + Batten, Finn’s Seafood Chops Cocktails, Glo Restaurant + Lounge, Med Grill, Steamship Grill & Bar, and The Dining Room at the Butchart Gardens made the list.
