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

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.

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
