Always a winner

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... read more

Went for lunch on the weekend and had such a great experience!! The restaurant is so different from your normal place,but in a great way!

Excellent in all respects. The staff are all exceptional, with pleasant manners and eagerness to sell you more in drinks and courses. The prices are higher than elsewhere in Hamilton and yet you feel it is deserved. The only criticisms are that we were not given the water without ice as promised and were not offered the dessert menu.

This is my fourth visit to VSB and although it was surprisingly quiet for a long weekend Saturday night we had exemplary service and food once again. Our party of four had 2 beef fillets and e pork hock and the other dish was the tuna loin. The oysters (tempura) I started with were unanimously the best starter - I... More

Well. if you want to play at being rich, discerning, and elite, you can offload a lot of money here, and spend the evening shouting at the person next to you to be heard ! But although the "cuisine' is a little bit posh, it's not rally "all that" - there are at least half a dozen Hamilton restaurants who... More

From Julia's warm smiling to the last crumb of dessert, I love this place! The best place to eat in Hamilton - wether it's a relaxing intimate meal for my wife and I, family occasions or a place to share the best of cuisine and surrounds with friends.

I dined at VSB last weekend with my best girlfriends and my mum. The service was just what you'd expect at an award winning restaurant and the food was amazing! Every mouthful reminded me that I don't go out to eat often; so when I do it needs to be amazing and it needs to be Victoria Street Bistro! Thanks... More
