A nice treat

I took my fiancé here for dinner after seeing the reviews. We knew it was going to be expensive, but you get what you pay for. We had wonderful service, and to my surprise the meals were not micro sized. It's not a lone star portion, but it doesn't need to be. We had a bottle of wine and three... read more

Very tasty food, efficient & polite service, drinks order taken quickly and arrived soon after, food order taken & food came in a timely fashion. After years of being open they remain one of Hamilton's best restaurants and we are fortunate to have many quality restaurants to choose from here!

Not the first time we've been to Victoria Street Bistro, but like every time, a completely faultless experience. The food is to die for, the service goes above and beyond what you'd expect (every single staff member is friendly, interested, attentive - the service is amazing from when you call to book to when you leave) and we love the...

Came here on a private function and had the 6 course degustation. Excellent service as soon as we walked in, very attentive waitress, water always filled up, drinks always topped up when needed. Each dish was amazing, all fresh and full of flavor, actually got full because the dishes were still decent sized! Can understand how the chef has won... More

We (husband & I) ate oysters - natural & tempura an excellent suggestion by our host to sample both, Wakanui Eye Fillet for the husband and fish of the day for me. Both excellent. Finished... More

Searched Tripadvisor for Hamilton's best restaurant and the top three offered mixed reviews. We settled on Victoria St Bistro and booked for their 6-course degustation menu which was very good value. The chef has won several awards and, for the next couple of hours, out came food that showcased his talent. The food is well presented and the combination of... More

Beautiful restaurant, ambience and exceptional service. Highly recommend dining here especially for a special occasion. Beautifully cooked and presented meals, little wait time between courses and top value for money. Well worth the price. Recommend any dish as they're made with love!
