A small cozy restaurant in downtown Sidney it has a menu of typical Swiss specialities including several types of scnitzels. Nice white tablecloths and napkins, excellent service. A great find!

Although Bistro Suisse doesn't offer the same style of food I became used to while working in Vaud, Suisse, it is good and the menu is delightful. Service is nice, too - a bonus!

Bistro Suisse continues to provide excellent, if traditional, Swiss and Austrian specialities at more than fair prices. The food is always well-prepared with generous portions- nothing fancy but always good. The restaurant itself is "decorated"(?) with canton crests, animal heads and other old-time Swiss paraphernalia-- I guess that is part of the charm. I am always pleased by the very... More

The service was very good. The onion soup was amazing. Their special was roast beef. It was amazing. The horse radish unreal. If readers have ever been to Saskatoon and been to TCU Place their horse radish is unreal. Very hot. Bistro Suisse has horse radish as good. Highly recommend.

After a poor experience at a "fine dining" establishment we ended up at Bistro Suisse. We were met at the door with a warm welcome, escorted to a table and the great customer service stayed consistent through our visit. Its predominantly a schnitzel house but offers many items on the menu. The meal was huge and absolutely delicious. The service... More

We've been to the Bistro Suisse a couple of times and it has never disappointed! For a truly authentic experience, this fine little bistro in Sydney cannot be beat -- probably the best Swiss restaurant on Vancouver Island. The space is fairly small, though, so reservations are recommended! Oh, and the schnitzels are a must!!

Amazing food as always! Make sure make a reservation and ask for a table on the patio. This is probably the best Swiss restaurant in town! Enjoy :)

Having a Swiss background, I can honestly say that the menu at Bistro Suisse is absolutely wonderful. The meals that I've had here so far are very authentic...it tastes like back home and the staff is very friendly. Highly recommended!
