We live in the Tauranga area and thought that no one could match Post Bank ( Mount Maunganui ) but this place was even better ! Excellent customer service, great ambiance and exceptional food. No wonder they were placed number 1 in the Monteiths Wild Food Challenge, the dish they entered was just devine, all four of us agreed it... More

The front of house staff and food was exceptional. Possibly the longest i have taken to choose my meal - everything looked interesting - if only I could have had a small piece of each! highly reccommend to anyone looking for a fine dining experience in Hamilton. Prices represent great value for money.

The select menu was well promoted with the house speciality featured. A nice touich were the individual hors d'oeuvre that were a real treat. The wild beef rib eye was cooked to perfection and although the portions seemed small our appetites were well met. The entree of calamari, shared, was exquisite. Service matched the standard of the food.

Went with friends on a Friday evening. The place was buzzing. The menu had some interesting dishes and combinations. Some of the language was overly obscure but the dishes we ordered were all wonderful. Jools made some great wine recommendations and overall a very good occasion.

Menu was varied and the special of wild beef not to be missed. Even Michele tried the signature ale recommended to accompany it and her 25 yr old daughter was quite happy to drink the reminder. Service outstanding and very personable.

Victoria street bistro is a lovely restaurant, fabulous intimate surroundings, and beautiful food. Meals are not large but are exquisite in taste and presentation. You leave feeling fed but not that horrible over full feeling. This is a lovely restaurant for couples or friend but not that appropriate for children.

Whole meal was delicious - we had clams and the beef, both amazing and so were the yummy fries! Followed by the NICEST dessert of Plum Bombe Alaska - you have to try this! Very nice staff too :)

Great Service! Great Food! We were very lucky to eat here with a work function. Not the cheapest place in town but well worth the extra dollar. Really nice meal out.
