New favorite restaurant on the island

We were going to the Mexican place in Sidney but it was closed so we went here and are so glad we did. The food was some of the best quality I've had in Victoria / Sidney and was just delicious. The staff are wonderful. It's defiantly on my top favorites list !

Traveling through Sidney and happened upon Bistro Suisse. What a wonderful meal and excellent service... they were crowded but took us in without reservation.

I have dined here several times in the past five years primarily for business lunches and on a couple of occasions for special outings for a birthday and anniversary celebration. While I can not say I have had a truly bad meal here, there has been some degree of variability in quality the past couple of years and that perhaps... More

If you are a fan of good food, well cooked, then Bistro Suisse is the place for you, They have a wide selection of entrees, and will provide what amounts to a half-serving (one schnitzel) for lighter appetites. The rosti and spaetzle are outstanding, and if it leaves some people with extensive experience in the 'real' schnitzel wanting more -... More

We have traveled extensively in Germany and Austria and therefore have had some wonderful Schnitzel. We were hoping we could have the equivalent at Bistro Suisse in Sidney. The Schnitzel was acceptable, not exceptional and the accompanying potato Rosti was very disappointing. It was always a favourite of mine and I had hoped for something much more authentic. The prices... More

We stopped in over the Family Day holiday, we had been wanting to try this place for some time. The resturant is small and cozy, with warm Suisse decor. We ordered three orders of the Schnitzel and one order of crab cakes. The service was prompt and friendly with our food coming out in a reasonable amount of time. We... More

Stopped in with my husband on the way to the ferry. Service was friendly, food was delicious. I had the beef schnitzel with the cabbage and potato pancake. My husband had the beef stroganoff which he loved and we finished with the apple strudel. Portions were fair sized, I had leftovers. It was so good I wanted to go back... More

Your grandma will love bringing her friends here. There is rarely a customer under 65 - a dedicated group of patrons.

To travel in english speaking countries and to eat the food provided there is sometimes difficult as a women who loves fruits and vegies and only small pieces of meat. I like english food, but not every day ;-) Luckily I found the Bistro Suisse with his great choice of Schnitzels or vegetarian choices on the menu. I tried the... More

I had the possibility to visit the restaurant three times - including christmas day. The service was fast and very attentive. The food was tasty, wonderful presented and the interior very "swiss like". There are lots of little details to explore and just ask Barbara if you wanna know a little bit more about all the stories of these details.... More
