My Mom, who is 89 yrs old & I took a day trip down to Courtney, when we where in Nanaimo In late July. She wanted to go to Bisque for Coconut prawns. I had seen pictures of the Prawns in a basket on their web site and have been craving them for a long time. I had been to... More

Delicious food and lovely ambience. No rushing through your meal here. Savour every bite as the chef has lovingly prepared each dish. We have just moved to this area from a resort town. It has been hard to find a restaurant that can compete with the world class restaurants in our former home. We will be back with friends and... More

Having just moved to the Comox Valley, we have been exploring all aspects of living here. Last night we found a real gem, Bisque. The food and service was outstanding. The portions were unbelievably generous. Wine list was excellent and very reasonably priced. Everything seemed to be fresh and locally sourced where possible. We are already planning our next visit.

This restaurant is outstanding, we would move here just to be able to eat here. Wasn't just a meal, was a culinary experience. 6 out of 5 stars. This is a gem. Will always eat here when visiting. Service excellent.

While my husband and I have been traveling throughout the BC islands for the past six weeks, we've had some good food - especially, of course, seafood. But last night we had one of the best meals so far on our trip at this very unassuming, strip mall location. DO NOT be put off by the setting. Though the setting... More

We've had dinner day and it was amazing! The chef went through french cuisine course and you can totally tell. If you're ever in Courtenay and feel like a good dinner for a reasonable price for such great food this is then place to go!

Previous reviews are spot on. Best lunch on Vancouver Island at a reasonable price. Marley (sp?), the co owner served us and was efficient and wonderfully friendly. Food superb in both presentation and taste. Large portions - yum yum. After the crowd thinned she brought Vancouver Island maps and recommended sight seeing trips. A must if you are anywhere nearby.

Do not be fooled by the location, or the rather spartan setting. The food and the owners are great. As good a food as you will find on the north island and reasonably priced. Try the lobster bisque, it is delicious. You would drive right by this place and not give it a second thought but that would be your... More

This small restaurant in a strip mall off Cliffe Avenue and somewhat apart from the city's downtown area will not disappoint if you value excellence in food and friendly service above location and ambience. The decor is certainly unpretentious and a little spartan yet the premises are clean and well cared for. Access for those physically handicapped is a little... More
