We went for a birthday dinner with another couple. The decor was very comfortable and we had a nice table by the window. The service was very good. We had a regular salad which was very tasty followed by curry chicken rice (my husband had the fish entree) and gelato for dessert. Overall, the food... read more

My friend and I took our daughters for breakfast at the Bistro for Mother's Day. We had mimosas and we're able to order both breakfast and lunch dishes. The staff were cheerful and helpful. They provided us with some sight seeing ideas and directions in addition to our amazing meal. Overall a great experience.

We went with the lounge with Tapas. We just kept ordering till we were full and the food was outstanding. A number of dishes we would not typically try but all were well worth. Try it, break out of the comfort zone and enjoy.

My friend with dietary issues was totally misled, if we were not aware she would have been in danger from unlabelled food additives. Prices were high. I ordered trout and got salmon. Others ordered curry, hot sauce extra. No mint for a minuscule portion of lamb. Expensive mistay

Thanks for your thoughts on your experience. I'm sorry to hear that you thought your Lois Lake Steelhead Trout was Salmon. A close relative indeed, but it is a distinct species. As the purchaser of this fine product, I can assure you that you are mistaken. Although pink in colour, this tasty fish has been a well loved staple on... More

Served with fries. Meh. Portions on the small side but adequate for lunch. Loved the tea menu. Service was really good and ought... More
