We had lunch at the Victoria St Bistro a couple of months back. I would have to say very nice setting. Excellent service by younger staff, clean and welcoming. We started with bread and dips...yum. The food did not take long to arrive and the quality was exceptional. On the slightly more expensive end of the budget but well worth... More

This restaurant is in a great location in the centre of Hamilton. The staff were very friendly and the service was good. Unfortunately we both ordered red meat and both meals were virtually raw. It seems to be a trend for people to serve up meat completely raw these days. While we don't mind the meat rare we do not... More

My husband had been here with work and thought I would love it so we went out for a Sunday lunch. A lovely spot with a variety of seating, window seating, bar style tables and general seating. We were greeted by very friendly and professional staff. The atmosphere was great and not noisy. Loved the Chicken Parmigiana, the flavours were... More

I've taken a number of work guests to this restaurant over the last six months, the service is always first class. The food has consistently been great and well presented. I highly recommend it as a place to stop in for a meal as you won't be disappointed.

What a restaurant! We were lucky to be seated in one of their great booths at the window. Food was fantastic, I couldn't stop thinking about the quail entree for days afterwards! Everything was just great, would happily return again and again! Thank you VSB and thank you Ksenia for looking after us!!

This is a classy establishment run by a friendly but professional husband-and-wife team serving excellent food. I wanted a nice place without too much noise to treat my lovely mother-in-law, and my expectations were met. We both had oysters as a entree and the fish-of-the-day main, the latter delivered by the chef himself (Andrew Clarke). The oysters were beautifully presented... More

We've previously been to VSB several times for dinner but happened to be strolling past in the early afternoon a few weeks back and dropped in for lunch. It was a very pleasurable experience; the peking duck and chicken parmigiana dishes were delicious and wonderfully presented, we made sure there was still room for desserts which were equally tasty and...
