Once they’ve discover the Tapas Bar, residents and tourists alike flock to Trounce Alley in downtown Victoria to dine. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, with lively Spanish music and original paintings by Mexican artist Luis Merino. In warmer weather, enjoy your tapas on the patio and take in the charm of the area. Tapas are small appetizers that include an array of items meant to be shared.
