Three weeks ago we dined at VSB and it was again a great meal, we started with the Volcanic Ciabatta and it was amazing. Service by Scott was impeccable and the whole experience was worth the trip up from Taranaki

Our dinner for four was a fantastic night out. We shared the Volcanic Ciabatta before settling into our own entree dishes. I had been told about the ciabatta and was not disappointed. I followed this with the Arancini which really got my taste buds going. Lightly spiced and full of great flavours. I strongly recommend this when you visit Victoria... More

As a couple, we've dined and lunched at VSB many times. The service is always friendly and attentive and, if you ask nicely, they'll even go off menu. The food is generally very high standard and their specials, like the Wild Food Challenge dishes, are very inventive.

Tried three different dishes, all turned out average. But the service is outstanding and the inside decor looks very nice.

The food & the service is simply amazing! The atmosphere is sublime. Highly recommended. The staff don't hover but do check to see if everything is going well. Very knowledgeable about what wines suit each meal.

We go to Victoria Street Bistro maybe once every 6+ months and it remains my favourite. The food is 11/10 in quality and taste and service is good. Worth every cent.

It's been a while since we last had a meal here and this recent visit proved what is no secret - this is a top restaurant. My entree won't be revealed but it included chorizo and it was wonderful. My only criticism of a superb evening is that too many staff came to ask us if everything was all right.

Took a client for lunch we both had the fish which was cooked perfectly. Wait staff were attentive but not overbearing. I will certainly be back. I would rate this as in the rop 3 restaurants on Hamilton
