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!!

Without a doubt this is one of the finest restaurants anywhere in the Greater Victoria area. We compare it most favourably to even the best eateries we have sampled in France and Austria. The Bistro's wiener schnitzels are truly outstanding. We visit this restaurant with friends and relatives several times each month, and have always enjoyed outstanding service and food.... More

What a delightful, authentic Swiss restaurant located in the heart of Sidney, B.C. The reception is warm and welcoming as is the menu. Their "legendary" Schnitzel offering is Pork and available in full or smaller portions ($22./$15.). Options include "rosti" potatoes or spaetzel. Reservations for dinner are recommended due largely to the increasing popularity of the restaurant. Wine selection, while... More

We went for thanksgiving dinner. I honestly couldn't have done it better. I had the traditional turkey dinner and felt like I was at a family dinner. My husband had the lamb and was very happy, a very large portion for lamb 8 eyes. Cooked very well and it was a New Zealand lamb. The schnitzel is one of the... More

This place is pricey but totally worth it. Everything from the wine to the dessert was top-notch. Service was also excellent.

Went for early lunch today. Don't think prices at lunch are high but dinner maybe, Schnitzrl was very good, You could have it with caser salad or have rostis and cabbage. I wondered when I saw an ordinary knife if there would be a problem, This is very thin and cuts very easily. Service was great. Recommended

On a whim, I decided to visit Bistro Suisse again Saturday evening Sept 27/14. The food, the service, the atmosphere was -- again -- absolutely AWESOME. Everything was superior, right from the welcoming, professional atmosphere plus my first sip of my wine. My waitress indicated that this historically-excellent restaurant changed ownership last Nov 2013, and clearly a return to restaurant... More

Authentic swiss/german food with lovely service and a cosy space. My family of four drives up from Victoria fairly regularly to eat dinner here. The food is wonderfully prepared and presented and the portions are generous. Our 2 teenage sons always order the traditional schnitzel and love the thin, crispy yet moist schnitzels (2!) that they get. The Raclette appetizer... More
