If there is a place that deserves a Bib Gourmand or perhaps a Michelin star it is VSB! Apart from one tiny hiccup (the hapuka was swordfish and fortunately the maitre D pointed this out before we ordered) the whole meal was delicious and after many memorable meals in M starred places around the world we can say these are...

I have only been here for dessert as it is at the upper end of price for restaurants in Hamilton but the chocolate fondant was one of the best desserts I've had. I've previously had the bomb alaska which was also yum! Service is also excellent.

Lunched with friends, a little spoilt for choice with the menu! Tuna Sashimi excellent and colleagues enjoyed chicken parmigiana salad and the crispy duck salad. Very efficient but friendly waiter and a great ambience. Didn't try the desserts but highly tempted by the chocolate croissant! A first visit but will certainly return again soon. A thoroughly enjoyable place to lunch... More

Really impressed with the food and service at this restaurant. The food is mostly Asian-inspired and in places was delicious: stand-outs included a caramelised pork belly starter, a tasty vegetarian main of gnocchi, asparagus, haloumi and polenta and a salt caramel tiramisu. Service was super-friendly (if a bit over-attentive at times) and there was a great wine list with a... More

Well well well, Wellington look out - this restaurant beats any restaurant in Welly by a country Waikato mile. The food was bliss - the waiter endeared himself to me forever by not asking if I was having a happy day or similar - just a friendly professional encounter and the same with our waitress - adorable in her professionalism...

We dined at Victoria Street Bistro as a party of 16 people for a 50th birthday celebration. This was the first visit to the restaurant for my wife and I - it will certainly not be the last! This place has great ambience with friendly, considerate staff. The menu selection is extremely good. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her 'Green Pea... More

I had heard great things about VSB and was excited to go there with very high expectations which were easily surpassed. I had to book a few days in advance as the restaurant is small and rather popular, which I can see why. The staff were fantastic, friendly, just the right amount of attentiveness without getting in the way. The... More

Good service as we were early. The breads were good. Fish was pronounced very good; Beef Cheek was very tender; not so the Pork Hock rather dry in the middle but a very nice crust. Tiramisu desert good. Cheese selection nicely presented.
