My husband and I were delighted by our first visit to Blighty's. We were greeted warmly by Michelle the owner and shown to a cute private little window area. Fun ambience, but the reason for going was to try the food. We opted to share two appetizers: the fish tacos and the scallops. Both were so tender and so favourful.... More

Richelle and her staff became our good friends five minutes after we walked in the door. The food was as delicious in taste as it was in presentation. And I believe by the time the evening was over, every one of the staff made it to our table for one reason or another. The drinks were perfect and the wine... More

Four of us went to Blighty's Bistro last night for dinner. As soon as I walked in the door I knew I would like this place. Very comfortable and nice atmosphere. The food was so good. We had meatballs and then scallops to start. Yellow curry with halibut and prawns and the men had fettucini with chicken. The flavours and... More

Looking for good food out of the tourist part of Victoria? We found Blighty,s on trip advisor and we're happy with the intimate, not too fancy feeling. The owner greeted us and was so easy going, it was like being in a private home. Easily accommodated our drink requests and the food was delightful.

This was my first visit to Blighty's Bistro--a special event celebrating the restaurant's 20th year in business under the same owner, Richelle, and arranged by a friend. What fun! Twenty four people around a big square table, softly lit with candles and tiny lights, took up the entire restaurant for the entire evening. A set menu of what I think... More

We have enjoyed a few wonderful dining experiences at Blightys but have never written a review so this is a first. Rochelle always has a great smile and is celebrating Blightys 20th anniversary in April which is an amazing accomplishment in the restaurant business. We dined on Thursday evening to beat the Valentines rush. We started with the frites because... More

I cannot think of how one would improve upon this perfection. I am never disappointed, as they do everything well. as soon as I leave, I can hardly wait to go back,... More
