Authentic Swiss dishes prepared with love! Wonderful schnitzel, tasty rosti, many nice selections.Small and friendly local establishment that really knows how to deliver wonderful meals. Right on the main street and easy to find. Make a reservation so you won't be disappointed. Lots of food and friendly service.

Kept waiting for nearly 1hr 15 mins, despite having pre - booked table for special event. On arrival, with minimal & inadequate explanation, food was nothing special. Edible, but then so is a Big Mac & that's a lot cheaper & quicker. Won't recommend or return.

I had an excellent meal here and was well treated even though it was a very busy night and I was a single traveler. The food and service were both excellent. I loved that there were diners who obviously come often and were greeted by name and treated like honoured guests by the staff. I sat next to a charming... More

We had a delicious dinner at the Bistro Suisse last night for our anniversary. Try the rosemary chicken with whipped potatoes - it's wonderful. The dessert sampler with three choices to share is a good choice after a big meal. Our plate included creme brule, lemon mousse and a flourless chocolate cake - so moist it melts in your mouth!...

We have dined here several times - both for lunch and for dinner. Never been disappointed in any way. The food is superb and the service is perfect. Leave your calorie counting behind and truly enjoy a wonderful meal. Be sure to make a reservation.

Great food, great service. I went with two business colleagues and had a great experience. We walked by the restaurant and stopped because of the wonderful aroma coming from the kitchen. Highly recommended.

When I wrote my original review a couple of years ago, I was impressed with both the quality of the food and the service..... unfortunately, the last few times we dined at the Bistro Suisse the same quality wasn't found. The food was okay, they're apparently using the same recipes as the previous owners, but the schnitzel wasn't near as... More
