While staying at the Delta Ocean Pointe Resort in Victoria, we had two breakfasts and one dinner at the hotel restaurant, LURE. The restaurant is split into a lounge / dining area with someone playing the piano for our dinner experience. The restaurant overlooks the harbour, with raised seating in the centre so more people get to take advantage of the view – a lovely idea.
Children under 6 eat free off of the comprehensive children’s menu while children under 12 are also discounted. On our first night, Aiden had a huge meal of roasted chicken, veggies and french fries (instead of roasted potatoes). The meal was wonderfully prepared and flavoured – he loved it. He was given a menu with a colouring page and his beverage was also free.
For the first dinner, Ianiv had a burger delivered to the room (since someone had to stay with Damien while he slept) and both Dora (Babby) and I had the risotto special – mine was with the scallops, hers with the prawns. Each came with crispy bacon and an egg on top, which was different. The menu definitely was more high-end, but it was good. I thought the risotto was a little under-seasoned, but it was otherwise perfectly prepared.
We had breakfast at the hotel each day, choosing the convenience of dining on site so we could rush Damien back up to the room for his first nap of the day. On our first day, we dined simply on bagels or toast/cereal for Aiden, though on our second day we all ate bigger meals. I was personally incredibly impressed by the whole wheat blueberry almond pancakes – they were delicious – and Aiden’s plain pancakes were also quite tasty.
Although servers don’t come by as frequently as at some restaurants, we did appreciate that for our coffee (which was a little pricey), we were given a carafe on-table for refills and were offered to-go cups to take additional coffee for our day – a really nice touch.
