Hi, visiting Vancouver, Victoria, Banff etc in the summer. Just wondering how the prices compare to the U.K. for eating out. Just 2 adults. Thanks

Can’t you Google some restaurants in the places you’re going?

I think it is a bit more expensive. Wine in particular and it is pretty rank, stick to beer. Depends a lot on the exchange rate though.

It’s three years since we were there and thought it was broadly similar to UK if slightly more expensive. Wine was expensive. May well have changed though.
Very jealous, all 3 are lovely.

When I visited I remember thinking it was in line with London prices.

Remember that prices you see on the menus (and just on price tags in general) will be pre-tax. From memory the tax rates can be different in different provinces so could be different in BC and Alberta. I think it’s around 5% on food.

You also HAVE to tip.

Cheaper than London prices in the Rockies...on a par with London prices in Vancouver I found....we always drank the beer / soft drinks....these were comparable with U.K. prices....soft drinks were always refillable
