“Quite impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

For a small place in among other unique restaurants, we were pleasantly surprised by the whole Bistro Suisse experience. As a last minute choice one Saturday afternoon, we decided to try it for the first time. We now wonder why we walked past it so many times when in the area. Were always curious, none-the-less. Decor was authentic European along with the food, which was also delicious. Tasted just like the fare we had while actually in Europe. Portions were very generous. We were waited on by the owner's granddaughter who was very personable and helpful. Was very clean and the prices were also quite reasonable. A very nice place! Will definitely go again and NOT just walk past it.

“Good old fashioned Swiss Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

We had Rolladen with Red Cabage and Spaetzle. Delightful and tasty. The meals are not light, but then again don't go there if you are on a diat.
Will deffinetely go back for more when we are in the area.

“Great place for a european type lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Wonderful small restaurant in downtown Sidney on the main street.

Free parking on the street and close to the pier, walkway and shopping.

We have eaten here at least 6 times and the food is always wonderful with a swiss/german theme. Service is very good too.

Recommend you try this conservative small restaurant.

“Christmas dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Tiny and cosy, perfect place to eat a delicious traditional dinner..but with unique butter lettuce salad and ending with chestnut tiramisu. Close to our hotel, Sidney Suites.

“Terrific Schnitzel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Had dinner here after noticing how busy this restaurant was over the holidays - we decided all those people must know what they're talking about! My girlfriend and I had a lovely dinner there on a Saturday night. The restaurant is quite small so if it's a special occasion, reservations might be a good idea. I had the "Legendary Wienerschnitzel" while my girlfriend had the salad and crab cakes. Everything was terrific, the service was good and very friendly. The atmosphere was also quite nice... we ate there two days ago and have already recommended the place to two other couples!! If you're into Swiss/German food this place is a must see!
