Summer lunch on our wedding anniversary

Having read much about this restaurant we went very much as a spur of the moment, walk-in dinner on our way south one night. The entire experience from the wait staff to the food to the decor was excellent. Excellent wine choices, interesting and exciting food matches with very reasonable prices for what is a high end dining experience. The... More

I visited here for a birthday dinner. The place had a nice cosy atmosphere, with a nice table. This place also has booths for more privacy. The food was very nice and not too overpriced. Also a good ranges of wines! Would definitely go again.

Just had a lovely meal at Victoria Street Bristro. Service was friendly and thoughtful. Food was excellent with small portion sizes. Interesting range of foods in all courses. Prices are high in all areas so not a place for a cheap meal.

We were warmly greeted by attentive staff and were impressed with the complexities and balance of flavour in both the Peking duck and homemade pappardelle pasta with bacon and coddled egg. We will definitely be back for more! The dessert menu... More

Went for lunch with a group of friends, we all decided to choose two lunches (one as a starter and the other as a main). Everyone enjoyed their choices,. Food is all about quality rather than quantity so would either recommend two of the standard lunch offerings or one large main. Some even had dessert and presentation was fantastic and... More

We've been coming here for years for both lunch and dinner and we're always happy with the friendliness of staff and the outstanding food. If a window booth table is available then it's a great way to watch the world go by while you're enjoying the range of food on offer. Most recently an Asian-style duck salad, slow cooked beef...
