Lunch on the water

We had an enjoyable lunch at the Lido today. The waiter was very good and friendly, and the venue is great on a nice day. Almost on the waters edge and with good views watching the Victoria Harbour traffic sail by. For drinks enjoyed a beer flight and a local Lone Tree cider. This was only a light... read more

This place is amazing. Waterfront and relaxed, their staff is friendly and helpful. The Food was fresh and delicious. Top notch. On a sunny day, the patio is a great place to have a pint.

We had 15 minutes before a BC whale watching tour and wanted a beer. The Lido is about 30 feet from BC's office so we walked on over. A very pleasant waitress greeted us on entry and handed over menus. We saw & smelt food on a few other patrons' table and immediately wanted a pizza but lacked time... The... More

We visited this place thanks to the harbour ferry pickle pub crawl. First of all it's got a super friendly vibe, and great attentive personalized service. They make a great Caesar. And the best appetizer ever-east coast garlic fingers. So yummy we ordered them twice. Definitely not a low calorie option, beware. There is something very comfortable about this place... More

We went to The Lido Waterfront Bistro & Bar, to be surprised by the quality of the food. We ordered the Artizan shrimp pizza, and really enjoyed it. They had a sampler of beer for $7.99 which added to the whole experience. Will be sure to go again.

We went here with a groupon for their pizza. It's not the most glamorous place, and it's small, but it looks out over the inner harbour and the service was excellent. The pizza was delicious, we shared the Lido special and it was plenty of food for two, we would definitely go back!
