I have a huge problem. I'm addicted to Lidos tacos!! I crave them ALL the TIME!! I have gone to so many places in Victoria searching for the best fish tacos & I have found them at Lidos. Thank you!! Soft corn tortillas, housemade guacamole & coleslaw (which is actually amazing as well!) with fresh ingredients and just the perfect... More

So cool to hear Melissa! I must admit I too have them for lunch way too often! But no need for a visit to Betty Ford, as they make up a very healthy meal and are even gluten free - so no need to quit the habit! :) Cheers and hope to see you again soon! Steve More

Staff members were very welcoming here and service was quick, despite being a packed house on a sunny summer day. Had the raspberry mojito and saw the bar tender putting in a good amount of work with his muddler (sp?). Well done!

Awesome spot to sit in the sunshine and enjoy cold beer, sangria, and one of the best fish tacos in the city!! A little bit of an east coast influence in the pizzas and donairs if you are having a craving :)

The view is spectacular, right along the waterfront. The staff are friendly but not in your face & the artisan pizza is fantastic. This is definitely a place I would make as my go to place!

Just stopped by to have lunch on the patio in the sun. My wife had the fish taco which she loved I had the Lido special pizza which is a nice size and is a thin crust pizza that had great flavours. The waitress Megan and the bartender were very nice and explained things to us. We will go there... More

Getting here is interesting, as you have to negotiate building site by water. Most people seem to sit outside, but we chose indoor table by bar, only to find it very hot. Luckily you can pull down blinds to shut out evening sun. Waitress very helpful about craft beers, shared platters and size of pizzas. We had three shared platters... More

Awesome to hear Matthew! We all love to enjoy a pint after work too, so we are passionate about ensuring our tap line is comprised of some of the best local beers. A task which is often difficult when there are soooo many amazing breweries on the Island! As for our food - I agree we have an amazing team... More

Thanks for the review Ashley. So glad to hear you enjoyed the East Coast Garlic Fingers. One of our kitchen team is from P.E.I. and brought us his donair sauce recipe which has certainly been well received. We love being one of the venues on the Pickle Pub Crawl! Lido was one of the first three on the list back... More

We've been to Lido several times! My wife agrees, their pizzas are the BEST we've had anywhere. (Our second favourite is probably that place in Rockaway, Oregon, whose name I don't recall offhand.) The staff are top-notch: friendly, efficient, with ready smiles. If you're in Victoria, BC, Canada and you like pizza, do yourself a favour: try the Lido!! Peter
