Left the menu's alone ordered from the chalk board which had 3 delicious sounding specials of the day. The co-owner and our waitress made sure we were well taken care of and brought us a bottle of delicious red wine (local winery) at a reasonable price.

This is Courtenay's hidden gem. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food was superb!

I've been for lunch here once before and it was very good so my husband and I decided to try it. We each had the special soup and salad and both were delicious. The sandwich was a combination I hadn't had before - shrimp and egg salad. Yummy. Other people in the restaurant were having more substantial meals and the... More

I agree with another reviewer that Bisque would certainly be worthy of 5 stars if it could be cozied up a bit. I too enjoyed the artwork but some warmer earth tones, table linens, more upscale patterned fabric chairs, and some little white lights and candles would work wonders. Because the food is a 5 for sure but atmosphere is... More

I live in Comox and am lucky to have the pleasure of dining at this restaurant whenever I want. Although the decor could benefit from an update, the food is fantastic. Very quaint setting, not overpriced, good portion sizes and I try something different every time I go. The service is prompt and each meal is cooked fresh just for... More

The only reason I'm only rating Bisque very good instead of excellent is because the ambience could be improved. The art is cool but the furnishings are a little 'coffee shop.' The meal started with an amuse bouche, and finished with house-made truffles, and everything in between was fantastic. My husband's meal was all seafood and mine was the opposite,... More

We chose Bisque based on some previous reviews on line. We picked the shrimp and crab bisque as the house specialty. The soup tasted of nothing but cooked flour. It had absolutely no shrimp or crab or brandy flavor. Neither of us ate more than a few spoons of the soup, but when the server came to remove our plates,... More

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
