Our waitress was knowledgeable in the area. Many locals go to this restaurant we could hear overhear them speaking. The hostess recognized many of the locals by name. This restaurant was recommended to us by several different people who enjoy boating throughout the Canadian islands… They said it is a must.. And we agree.

Our family of four (two teenage boys) enjoyed our dinner here very much. The menu had something for everyone and the food was very good with generous portions as well. We enjoyed the seafood dishes, as well as rack of lamb and schnitzel. There was a full bar, as well as good wines--from BC and Europe-- to choose from. The... More

This was our first time to Bistro Suisse. We were not disappointed. I had the Classic Schnitzel and my wife had the chicken. She is gluten intolerant and the restaurant had no problems accommodating her. Both meals were delicious and healthy portions. Unfortunately we didn't have room for dessert. The only blemish and this is not a slight against the... More

We had the schnitzel with spätzle. The meal was excellent. The service was quick and friendly. It was our first time here to the Island but the Bistro Suisse will be a guaranteed supper stop on our next visit.

We live three blocks away but are not frequent guests. First we waited nearly an hour to be served after ordering. "We are busy". Well restaurants do get busy. My three guests were quite happy with.their food. I had a few complaints - the waitress turned her nose up when a guest ordered a side of mushroom sauce with her... More

It's always nice to have authentic German food and you will get it here. Wiener schnitzel, spätzle, onion soup are all good. The portions are large, so you can share or have leftovers to take home.

The Swiss Bistro's new owners and chef have settled in and are doing a great job of introducing quality swiss fare with flair. The pork hock (scweinshaxe) melts in your mouth served with home made Sauerkraut and Red Cabbage. The Rostli and Spatzl are genuine, and the Schnitzels are delicious. Good service and now an outside patio area.

Wiener schnitzel, spätzle, onion soup. All done well. It's on the main drag, Beacon Street, which is great for a Postprandial stroll down to the long waterfront walkway.

We made a reservation for a Thursday evening. Sidney is busy with the summer market so we wanted to be sure to get a table at this popular restaurant. We were warmly greeted and seated by the window. Had we realized there were outdoor tables, we would have requested on of those. The waitress was very prompt and courteous, explaining... More
