On Family Weekend or any other time, the Delta deserves a look as a vacation choice. Reveals Victoria’s Newfound Vibrancy

Victoria isn’t nearly as stodgy or quiet as its reputation, as contributor Kathleen Kenna recently discovered. While touring the city and its new businesses, Kenna happened upon The Oyster, a restaurant with a vibrant feel and casual atmosphere that residents adore.

Kenna writes: “The Oyster shows what locals love most about Victoria in this century: It’s a foodie city celebrating its watery heritage. Chef Umut Cetin serves mostly local oysters, from both sides of Vancouver Island (Barkley Sound on the west; Fanny Bay on the east), and the mainland (Powell River and the Sunshine Coast.) He serves them raw, roasted, grilled, pan-fried and even baked. Oysters Pescatore features Fanny Bay oysters, shell-roasted, with bacon and leek cream, for $9. The Oyster is especially busy from 5 to 7 pm, when featured oysters are ‘a buck a shuck.’”
