“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Thoroughly enjoyable meal. Although not a large menu selection, it was a good range and hard to choose. The entree's were different to the usual fare and were very tasty and have to be the best value we have seen for a long time. The Chorizo was particularly tasty and the squid so tender. For mains I had the duck cassoulet which was superb, as was the fish risotto and the duck papadelle.
Compliments to the chef.

“Great little bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We visited for a family meal on Saturday night, what a great find. All our meals were delicious, I had fish which came with a seafood risotto, perfectly cooked and seasoned, with beautifully moist scallops. Side salad of rocket and pear was just right. My son and his girlfriend had the duck and my husband had steak, all were still talking about how good it was when we got home. We will definitely be back.

“Small and cosy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

The food is bistro casual, well flavoured, imagined and presented. Vegetarian options may be few but the chef is willing to cook additional non-menu dishes. The bitro is small with perhaps one or two too many tables; but the service is unfailing efficient, polite and friendly.

“a very good devonport addition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We have been to Victoria Road Bistro twice both meals were perfect. We are locals, and we have recommended the Bistro to several people who have also been very happy with meals and the service. It was the duck cassoulet that we shared on the first visit that enticed us back for a second visit, although news is that the steak is also very good. On our latest visit we started with the squid and risotto balls and we were impressed with both, we shared the duck cassoulet as a main as it is rich and very tasty. We also had a dessert the tiramisu which was very nearly perfect. As we are locals we will definitely be returning.
