4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014 NEW

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

When visiting new places, I rely on my sleuthing skills to uncover unpretentious culinary gems. I read reviews on different websites. I examine the restaurant websites. I read between the lines. This is how I found Bisque. It is located in a small strip mall which many would immediately question the quality of the cuisine. As they say...never judge a... More

While visiting our elderly aunt in Comox, we needed to find a restaurant that was easy for her with her walker, and could accommodate my dietary needs. It was a little bit of a walk for her from the parking lot, as even the handicapped parking spot was at the top of a slope. She took it slowly and we... More

This restaurant was highly recommended to me by one of my associates and we were not disappointed by the recommendation. Just off one of the main drags (Cliff Avenue), the restaurant appeared casual (quite nice, however) but the food and service was far from this. We were fortunately served by one of the owners and it wasn't until the end... More

This is where we go for dinner when we are celebrating a special occasion. Tonight it was our 55th anniversary. We were served warm bread and 2 phyllo shells filled with cream cheese and shrimp before we ordered. I chose the prawn stuffed with spinach and escargot for an appetizer. My husband had a crab cake. Both came with a... More

We've just eaten another great meal at Bisque and I decided that it was time to talk about it. After several visits, I can honestly say that everything we've eaten there was first-rate. The room isn't large and the decor is simple, but it's comfy and the service is always excellent. The focus is right where it should be, on... More

Dinner was great! Started with a complementary phyllo cup with flavored cream cheese and shrimp. Yummy! Then a three course meal - Caesar salad, Hunter Schnitzel and finally Creme Caramel. Great food, reasonable price, great service. A bottle of wine and it was a perfect evening.

The chef creates dishes you will not expect - beautiful tasty food. The location is in a gross strip mall that is off-putting. But get in the door and enjoy the friendly service and exceptional food. That location would have destroyed anything but a great chef. They deserve to be appreciated. really.
