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

A huge group of us, more than a dozen, stopped at Lido for beer and appetizers during the May long weekend. It took the server almost 45 minutes to get our order in but it appeared that only two servers were working the whole outdoor patio area. She was friendly and tried to do her best despite them being understaffed.... More

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.
