Yes!! The sun was out and the deck was open. What a great spot to stop by and enjoy the tables right at the water's edge. They've installed a glass breeze stopper and even at ten degrees it's nice and warm on the deck. Very friendly staff. Very enjoyable spot.

I just held a private birthday party at the Lido Waterfront Bistro and it was better than I could have anticipated. The food was spectacular and the staff was more than accommodating, the booking process was a breeze and the cost was so reasonable. Everyone loved the waterfront location and overall ambiance of the restaurant. I will definitely book another... More

Lido is in an excellent waterfront location... but they serve the worst fish tacos I've ever had. It's pretty hard to mess up fish tacos. Basically we were served ice-cold (COLD!) tortillas full of cabbage with a few tiny bits of fish. But did I mention they were COLD? (Not tepid. Not lukewarm. COLD.) However, I would try this place...

We had a groupon to use before it expired. They were very accommodating and we got a nice sunny spot on the busy patio. We ordered a mojhito and Long Island ice tea. They were average or below average. But then the tandoori chicken pizza arrived it was outstanding! We didn't stay long but we would go back on a... More

This place is a little off the beaten path. The pizza was very good. Throw in a couple of beers and the pizza is great! Really enjoyed being able to kick back and watch the bay while we ate our food! Had a personal feel that we really liked. Appreciated the waitress taking time to chat with us. We will... More

After shopping, we arrived at the Lido for dinner to find the restaurant was sold out to a group arriving in an hour. However, the hostess seated us at a table overlooking the water to watch the setting sun. We enjoyed the Abruzzi Breeze pizza and martinis. The pizza had an excellent thin crust with plenty of toppings cooked to... More

Tucked away from the craziness of town yet easy to access. LOVED the view of the downtown harbour while enjoying great food. I have been here a few times and always enjoy the lively activity of boats and planes....it is entertaining. Recommend the double baked wings, of course the pizza and even the giant burrito! Great beers on tap and... More

I have been here a few times with friends and the atmosphere has always been great however the weight staff seems very concerned with socializing instead of making sure paying customers have what we need. Although this is a nice local bar to go to, the staff should stop treating it like a club house and more like a place... More
