My wife and I dine at this outstanding restaurant several times each month. Of the many dozens of restaurants we have visited in the Greater Victoria area, we have yet to find another that exceeds our Bistro Suisse experience. Often we are accompanied by friends, and to a person, they share our sentiment, and often become regulars. Guido and his... More

Surrounded by wonderful Swiss decor and fed by a Swiss chef this meal was great. We came as a group of 50 that totally filled the restaurant. A great beer followed by charcuterie and a delicious meal of one of many Rosti on the menu. It is easily located in Sidney and good parking. Would definitely come back again and... More

We had lunch and it was perfect. We both had the schnitzel which was a perfect serving. The service, quality of food, price and venue can not be beat. Great job and I will now be a regular.

Made a visit to this restaurant for coffee and desert. The bread pudding was delicious and the service very friendly. The new decor is very interesting and gives a breath of fresh air in Sidney.

Bistros Suisse has an incredible menu replete with the best savoury, heart-warming dishes in Sidney. We're talking impeccable schnitzel with spätzle, amazing cordon bleu and beef stroganoff to die for! Wine pairings are excellent. Desserts are very tasteful and sized not to overwhelm the overall experience. Staff here elevate a great meal to an experience to remember.

The Staff at this establishment is always very gracious, especially the very lovely lady from California. The food is delicious, a very nice variety and the service is top quality. I appreciate the attention to details..such as a warm serving plate and the decor. Thank you so much for this wonderful dining experience.

Some friends of ours were celebrating their 40th plus wedding anniversary and we went to Bistro Suisse for a special supper. As you might expect from the name the atmosphere is definitely European. Two of us had the crusted lamb and it was excellent. The other two had schnitzel - and they were both happy with their choices. Prices were... More

Shortly after a holiday in Switzerland we visited the Bistro Suisse in Sidney for the first time. The owners have done a lovely job of providing an authentic Swiss dining experience. The food is wonderful, the service attentive and very friendly and the atmosphere took us back across the many miles to our times in Switzerland.

The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the staff are lovely. It appears to be busy most nights of the week so that is a good sign. However, if you are vegetarian, then it's not the place for you. We had the potato rosti but that's just about all there was on the menu for us, if I remember rightly.... More
