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

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

It was late morning and I just finished with my post-xmas sale shopping that took me to Sidney in the first place. It felt like a good time to grab some food. I was parked outside Bistro Suisse so I checked out their menu. It looked good so I went in. I am very glad I did. This restaurant is... More

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a unique experience. The menu has a lot of choices, and most meals offered you would have a hard time finding at other restaurants in Canada. Our Schnitzels were very good, and the atmosphere was very nice also. The person who I would guess is the owner (Swiss accent, and in... More

My wife and I booked this restaurant a few months ago and arrived promptly at 4:25 for the first siiting at 4:30pm. We had to wait until 4:55 until we had the first course delivered because the restaurant was waiting until the latecomers arrived, penalizing those of us who arrived on time. We had the unfortunate experience of sitting next... More

Was a little hesitant to go back to the Bistro after hearing about new owners. Although I was not fond of the decor the service and food was always consistently good. The new owners from Switzerland brightened up the small restaurant with their own decorations from Switzerland and changed the lighting which actually improved the setting. Food was plentiful and...

This is a small but cosy restaurant on Beacon Street about half way down on the left side. The food is very Swiss and very good, together with fine wine and friendly service, makes it a place for a romantic evening or adult family outing. Dec 2014

The owners are very welcoming and the food is traditional Swiss with a slight twist. Everything I tried was delish!!
