I am not a vegetarian, but I love the food here. It is tasty and filling and reasonably priced. It is a bit cramped and noisy, but service is good and the place is hopping.

Such good, quality food in reasonable portions. My meat-loving boyfriend even suggests it now. Fun smoothies and amazing breakfast. Very well made cuisine and fun decor.

Waited over an hour before eating. Sat for long periods with empty water and wine glasses without seeing a server. Not sure if they or short staffed or what regardless I would not go back or recommend this restaurant purely based on the service you will not receive.

Rebar was recommended to me by four separate people. I am not a vegetarian but the food is so delicious, fresh and satisfying you will never miss it. It's in a neat part of Victoria and the atmosphere is cool and funky but still homey. The staff were great and despite having to wait for my table (call for reservation... More

We were in Victoria for a funeral. After a long hard day my husband and I went to Rebar for dinner with my 8 month old son. Not only was the food unbelievably delicious (all made from scratch), our angel of a server held our son for us the entire meal so we could have a break. It was the... More

Very pleasant service, and the restaurant is warm and welcoming. Servings were generous - my vegetarian son enjoyed his enchiladas, while my wild salmon tacos were amazing. The poutine is really good, too: the miso gravy has a hint of ginger, for a very delicious change from that kind of glue-y brown sauce in many versions of poutine. The cheese... More

Thank you for taking time to share your experience with us, and letting us know how inviting our atmosphere is. Glad to hear our enchiladas and wild salmon tacos were a hit, and we really enjoyed your description of the poutine! Hopefully next time you save room for dessert, they taste as dangerously good as they look! More

Whenever we go to Victoria we always end up at Rebar. My biggest problem is that I have to make a decision on what to choose as there are so many things I want to try. This time it was the Almond Burger with a side of Garlic Potato Soup. They were both delicous. My wife had the ramen Soup... More

A friend of mine recommended that I visit Rebar while on the island. I made sure to go the very first day of my visit and found it to be all she described. I was warned that it is frequently busy and crowded, yet, I clearly arrived past the crush and was seated immediately into a cosy corner. The menu... More
