In the Chateau Victoria Hotel

Vista 18 Logo w Blue TextGarrett started his culinary career in Fredericton,
New Brunswick at the age of 19. Upon moving to Victoria, British Columbia, Garrett completed his professional culinary arts training at Camosun College. After the 3-year apprenticeship program Garrett left Victoria to spread his wings in South East Asia and Australia working in various local restaurants. It was during this time that Garrett discovered his true passion for cooking and creating using fresh, local ingredients.

Garrett returned to Victoria in 2001 where he expanded his culinary expertise in several of the area’s top restaurants. Garrett then took a brief hiatus from the hectic culinary life only to learn that the excitement of the gastronomic world lived deep inside his soul and there was no way of escaping it. It was at this time that Garrett took over the helm at the top of Victoria. Garrett joined Vista 18 in September 2007 and was elated to find a venue that continually inspires him in his quest of working with top quality ingredients, fostering relationships with local farmers and producers, and celebrating the sustainable food movement.
