Italian
Translated from Italian, FARO means “beacon” or “lighthouse”, a well-suited name for a location that has been a beacon for Oak Bay locals and visitors alike, where guests have gathered to enjoy Victoria’s most luxurious oceanfront accommodation, dining experiences and award-winning spa setting for over 90 years. FARO is anchored by its Wood Stone pizza oven and a seasonally changing menu that includes handcrafted pizzas, a variety of fresh salads and small bites, cocktails and local wines, all to be enjoyed in a stunning modern room, at the tasting bar or on the outdoor patio with fire features.

Faro has great pizza and a beautiful setting and ambiance. I will be back, however I think they are still working out kinks as the service was very slow but new COVID procedures are also likely a factor.

Glad to see the wait staff wearing masks. Was a little disappointed to see that the oven wasn't wood burning, but, the pizza was good just like one from an authentic wood burning oven.

My first visit with two friends. We each had a different pizza and all were very much enjoyed. I hope to return with another friend in early August....she is the one who first told me about FARO. Compliments to the chefs and the entire staff. Well done !

Service and the setting was exceptional. The food was quite good but it, and the wines, are very expensive. A shared appetizer, pizza, one small dessert and a bottle of the cheapest wine was $170 with tip.
I would recommend Faro but be prepared for the cost.

Thoroughly impressed with our service and the food was great, too! Would highly recommend the prosciutto melon appetizer and the lemon tart dessert!

Great pizza, awesome service. Pizza isn't cheap but it's delicious and still good value for what you're getting. If they keep doing what they're doing we'll keep coming back!

Great place to escape - pretend you’re in Italy for the afternoon/evening.

If drafts from two open doors can be remedied, ambiance will be rated higher. The food was delicious but the pizza was quickly cold--as were we--because of the chilling draft.
