Vis a Vis-5946.jpg


With a “face-to-face” mentality, Vis-à-vis is a personalized and engaging experience. With front row seats, you are able to interact with our Bartender & Charcutier while sipping on a glass of wine, locally crafted beer or a signature cocktail.




Fresh, local, french inspired breakfast, lunch, dinner, late night


Wine dinners, brunch & bubbly, and so much more


Hand picked and paired wines from our in house sommelier

Due to the current Provincial Health Order our indoor dining has been suspend until further notice. Please join us outside on our patio from 7am daily. 

Please note ~ we do not take reservations on our patio

Community means so much, and to all the staff at the Penny Farthing and Vis-à-vis community means more than just where we live. It’s the feeling we get as we greet you hello when you walk through the door. It’s the sense of pride that is installed in us when we watch you take that first bite or first sip. It’s the thank you we feel for all of your support and efforts to help us all through these difficult times. Without our community we wouldn’t be who we are. Thank you Oak Bay for your continued patronage. We look forward to the brighter days ahead.
~ Vis-à-vis
