To call the fish and chips "fish and chips" does the meal that we ate a disservice. These fish and chips had pieces of fish stuffed with crab which transforms the meal into a gourmet's delight. Staff was attentive and friendly. Our waitress also had a great sense of humor. The owner came by to make sure that we were... More

Small restaurant with vibrant & friendly atmosphere - a place where you feel comfortable chatting to the locals at the next table. Lots of chatting & laughing. Richelle the owner is very welcoming and adds that personal touch. Service was very friendly and fun. Food great - we had the gourmet fish & chips because it sounded so interesting, and... More

This is my first review which is terrible because I've been very lucky to have eaten in restaurants all around the world and experienced meals that are truly amazing. Last night though, we went to Blighty's after receiving a gift certificate from a client. Our meal there was so outstanding that I just have to share it. Whether you are... More

This is the first time I have ever reviewed a restaurant on Trip Advisor. I live in Oak Bay, and Blighty's Bistro is my favourite restaurant in Victoria. I can't remember a meal that wasn't memorable both for the quality of the food and the level of service. Rachelle is personable and fun which makes all the difference. We have... More

Blighty's was recommended to us by a local and we weren't sure about going so far away from the downtown core but found we made the right decision. The food was super good and the service was excellent. Five out of five.

We went in on the Tuesday of our visit to oak bay and I have to say this is the most amazing bistro I've eaten in. Wines were reconended, food allergies noted and the food was fresh and cooked to perfection. The service was so attentive, friendly and welcoming. We were in quite late (for Victoria!) And there was no... More

Great little restaurant with brilliant friendly service, cosy atmosphere and good location. All of this however is topped by the food, excellently presented, right size portion and tasted amazing for all three courses we had. Was so good have cancelled my reservation for tomorrow to go back!! Please go and try this place for yourself!

Have to totally disagree with Stef581. I called the night before departing SFO to see if they could take us tonight for dinner. I was told that they were closing at 7:30 for a private party. If I could arrive by 6:00 and would be OK with a table in a nook up front, they would be happy to serve... More

Have tried several times to go to this restaurant and can't quite get in the door either because of the irregular hours (inconsistent and unpredictable despite what it says on the door) or the rudeness I face on the telephone. Was actually told tonight 'we are running out of food' and "there is no place for you here". Not welcoming,... More

True confessions first: we chose the restaurant for its food (excellent), but we made two return visits to buy the art! We enjoy contemporary art that we can afford. While happily enjoying the soft ambience and delightful food, we discovered that the art was a product of the prodigious and multi-talented owner, Richelle Osborne. Captivated, we returned to the states... More
