Q Represents Queen and Country, a Nod to Queen Victoria, with A Modern Twist on Royalty.

Q at the Empress, located in the most storied room in Victoria, is a must-visit culinary experience. The Pacific Northwest cuisine is based on regional ingredients, partnerships with local farmers and artisans, and utilizes our own chef’s herb and vegetable garden to ensure a fresh and unique meal. 

The wine list celebrates an excellent selection of the best of the Pacific Northwest and top vintages from around the globe. Relax with the best views in the city on our harbour facing Veranda. Steeped in the history of the Fairmont Empress but with a modern feel, Q at the Empress is the place to be on Vancouver Island. Our carefully curated menu features sustainably sourced seafood, traditionally raised meats and a wide variety of artisanal offerings.
