Little Jumbo Restaurant & Bar
Fri, Sat 5:00 pm–12:00 am
Visiting for a long weekend with friends... Highly recommend Ceviche.
Fabulous as advertised. Drinks are special and different. Menu is creative and healthy. Service is terrific. Just great.
way overpriced . unimaginative. I received two spare ribs. and a dollop of brown beans for $26
OMG! Do yourself a favour and stop by little jumbo. Whether it’s for a drink or for food- you will not be disappointed. I have been here many times and I absolutely swear it gets better every single time 🥂
Great food with a great atmosphere.
Unique and excellent cocktails, awesome tasty food, we enjoyed a very good meal! friendly and helpful staff.
We loved the speakeasy uniqueness of Little Jumbo. Our server was particularly enthusiastic about each item we ordered, and could talk about the flavours and high notes...always a good thing! I felt the drink menu could have been longer, although the skies the limit really, as they have everything you could want and more. I just like shopping all the creative combinations that a mixologist comes up with, rather than thinking up my own. Thank you for having us. We will be back! Cheers
Great ambiance and very welcoming. I appreciated the professional service allowing me and my friend to catch up and take our time with dinner and drinks on our girls night out.
Food is amazing! Unique menu and awesome service.
Went on a date here and had the best service. Would highly recommend the duck
We had a wonderful meal, excellent cocktails, and delightful service. We were only in Victoria for two days, and there are MANY dining options. We were so glad to have chosen Little Jumbo.
It is a great concept but due to cocktail composition, service and the fact no one we saw was interested in their food, we will not be back.
The service was poor to start and the server tried to make up for it at the end, but that was her initiative and not the house.
Everyone’s Frites were overdone in sight of us that night. Maybe cruise ship fatigue, maybe an off night but it is too bad really
Fantastic service, very knowledgeable on wine-brought tasters till we found ‘the’ one! No pressure, easy going and relaxed. I’d highly recommend Little Jumbo!
Great service, and nice cocktails
Amazing food and great service. I love the decor!
One of my favourite Victoria restaurants. Amazing cocoktails and great food. Has never disappointed. Great place to bring out of town guest, have a dinner date or drinks with friends.
Great spot. Really neat atmosphere along with excellent food, service and drinks as well. Can't go wrong!
Craft cocktails, Kale Salad and Tuna were 5 star!!
Always great service and terrific food in a beautiful room. Love it!
The food was excellent -- very, very tasty and well presented. And the cocktail was delicious -- a whiskey-based one with whiskey, whiskey liqueur, aloe vera, citrous, and a couple other things. We shared the warmed olives and a tomato salad; I had the duck breast, my wife the corn risotto.
The Drinks were amazing. Duck was cooked amazing and so tasty. The only reason I gave the food a four was the beef ribs were a little too fatty. The flavor was amazing and the homemade beans with ribs were mouth watering. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and drinks
I love truffle fries, but my wife can't stand truffle - so the kitchen very nicely made "plain" fries for her. She was thrilled! All our cocktails (we tried four from the new menu) were fabulous, as always.
Drinks are amazing, bartenders are fun and food is almost as amazing
We are regular customers of little jumbo and always love the food, drinks, service, vibe. We have been disappointed the last two times with menu and food. Not up to previous standards. Duck was tough and gnocchi tasted like gayer tots.
Absolutely fabulous experience. Our reservations were for 6:00, but it didn't get busy until after 7:00. The truffle fries and burger were delicious, as was the risotto. The chocolate pot de creme was fabulous. Delicious BC wines were well chosen and very reasonably priced, especially with the conversion to US $. We enjoyed our evening so much, we went back two days later. This is a real treasure in Victoria.
It's been several years since my last visit and the ambiance has become more intimate with lower lighting since then, bring a torch to read the menu! The service was very good with the waitress being very familiar with the menu and able to answer all our questions. The choice of food was interesting and the quality very good. Thank you for an enjoyable dinner.
Thought we’d try out a new to us restaurant. Everything was amazing! We shared a plate of Truffle Fries, wow!
Great wine too.
Everyone really enjoyed their meals. I think I just might have had the best tuna ever, literally melted in my mouth!!
Great tucked away spot. Don’t let the entrance dissuade you. Walk in and enjoy a cozy bar and pub like atmosphere with an amazingly gifted bar tender and chef! Innovative and fresh approach to both cocktails and fine food.
We took our friends to Little Jumbo and really enjoyed it. The food was excellent and the drinks are tops.
Absolutely fantastic, although a little on the louder side.
Ordered the clams and they were the best i've ever had (and I couldnt even finish them) - Dad had the burger and was really impressed with that as well. Very happy to have a hidden gem like this!
Definitely would recommend.
Our waiter was outstanding! as was the hostess who seated us. The turned the table so we could sit side by side to talk. Made a special evening - wines excellent especially the Gamay. Dinner very good.
Great food and outstanding service! Our server made the night and the hostess was able to accommodate our request for a larger table.
Excellent meal/ waiter was attentive and helpful
Loved Little Jumbo. Thanks to the New York Times, or we never would have known about it....not exactly a place you would wander in off the street. Wonderful cozy atmosphere, amazing food and excellent service. We sat at the bar and thoroughly enjoyed it!
Every trims I come to Victoria I set up both personal and business related meals with Little Jumbo. From the moment you enter the door until you leave the dining experience is exceptional. Their mixologist is outstanding creating innovative and tasty cocktails. The food is awesome and creative. This is topped off with fantastic service. In addition, there is a lot of history with this restaurant which one should read about on little jumbo restaurant. The horse carriage worn wooden pillars remain from when this building was first built so many many years ago. Little Junbo is truly a must visit for both local islanders and visitors.
Great room, excellent service, good food. What more can you want? I recommend sitting at the bar. Skirt steak was fantasic.
The service was excellent and the food (burger and fries) was delicious. We felt a tad over dressed since it said it was a business casual restaurant, had people with torn pants with just a t-shirt.
Outstanding in every way!! Can’t go wrong at Little Jumbo!
Awesome - cool speakeasy theme. Love Love
The restaurant is defined as a speakeasy due to it's history, so it does have that ambiance. But it is snug.
Price: $$ of 5
Pro: Great choice of creative cocktails, interesting choice of dishes, good for an adventure
Cons: not great for a date if you want a) be able to talk b) want some space for yourselves c)romance
