What a great find! When I first got there I sat near the bar waiting for my family, I got to chat with the staff, very friendly and can offer great tips about the city. They have great local beers on tap. Once the family joined we sat at a table on the patio, let me tell you, that is... More

We had a large group and no reservations in Victoria for dinner. We checked into a number of places and were turned away. We found ourselves at Lido Waterfront and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The pizza's were fun and very tasty. The prices were good. The view was wonderful! Lido Waterfront is easy to miss, we would not... More

I travel solo frequently enough and usually get great service. Not the case here. Walked up to get a seat, had to track down a waitress to ask if I could sit somewhere. She couldn't get a seat on the patio (understandable, it was busy), but didn't offer a seat inside, she seemed quite uninterested in helping out an individual... More

The waitress was beautiful, the beer was cold, and the pizza tasted fresh with an incredible gravy! Perfect view and atmosphere for splitting a pizza between the four of us and sampling the local beers. Savannah, GA needs a place modeled after Lido.

Nothing like sitting 20 feet from the ocean watching seaplanes come and go or little passenger ferries putt by. This place is about location. You will have to look for it down in the parking lot, but will really enjoy it. We just had cocktails here, and enjoyed the surroundings. Staff was very efficient getting ours and other orders in.

Had a stroll along the shore of Victoria and stopped at the Lido Bistro and Bar. Had a few great cocktails and service was friendly.

We stopped by the Lido for a beer and to look out at the harbor after walking around (and around!) Victoria, and found it to be an easy place to hang out for a bit. Staff was really nice and there was no pressure to order food, more drinks, or leave! Good beer! Good place! 4-Stars!!

Great location down by the water - not really matched by anything else in the harbour. Drinks are good - particularly the Mexican caesar. Food was excellent! - 1 pizza is to much for one person. Fish tacos were divine!

Carefully prepared with local foods from sustainable sources and participate in the meal share program. So you get to eat great food and feel good about it! What's not to love? Add in a gorgeous water view; you are right by the water. It's all good. Good value for excellent quality. Quiet relaxed ambience, but not hushed in a formal... More

Recently went for lunch on their fantastic waterfront patio on a beautiful warm sunny day. Had the Carnivore Pizza and a couple draft lagers. The pizza was one of the best I've ever had! Great thin crust, tasty sauce, loads of beautifully cooked cheese and juicy tasty meats. Bacon, capicollo, pepperoni, etc. fantastic! It was too much for one person,... More
