“One visit it not enough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Had a wonderful dinner and wanted to got back, but ran out of time (on vacation). We started with the crab cakes, which were so good. I had the seafood crepes (which I would've ordered if I could go again), my husband had the shrimp curry which we said was very good. A must is their special marguerita.

The environment is great and the service friend and attentive.

“The best in Qualicum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We had dinner here whilst visiting Qualicum Beach. They were closed the next evening for Canada Day. My husband tried to persuade them to open up as we would have certainly gone back a second night. The food, prepared to order, was excellent. Try the local scallops - fabulous. Good wine recommendation. The service was impeccable, the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. the ambiance was relaxed and unhurried. The table was ours for the evening. We recommend the Bistro highly.

“Amazing summer night dinner on the Long weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

A group of nine of us has a wonderful dinner and over all evening in this lovely bistro in Qualicum Beach. We made a reservation and the good service started there with the restaurant bumping back the time of their final booking to accommodate our group. From the moment we entered the Bistro we knew we had found a gem. A lovely outside patio, a inside that felt outdoors with all the front of the restaurant opened up to let the beautiful summer evening breeze remind us of what an amazing summer night it was and of course great service were all just foreplay to the main event ....fantastic food. Many of us had the amazing Thai ling cod special and all of us raved about it, we also enjoyed crepes, scallops, crab cakes, gorgeous salads, fresh lime margaritas, local wines, and one managed to save room for dessert. Would highly recommend this restaurant and will go back any time I am in the area. We also closed the place that evening and never felt any pressure to hurry up or to leave.

Never been disappointed at 694. Great food, freshly prepared by Tony while his charming wife, Nancy, takes care of the customers.

“Great cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We have dined at the Bistro 694 ten times in the past year and each time been delighted with the quality of the food, the innovative approaches to using local ingredients, and the friendly reception and service by the servers. The Asian flavours of many of the dishes is complemented by the freshness of the ingredients and the creative presentation. Always a good selection of local wines and beers.
