“Great pizza, average drinks”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We had a groupon to use before it expired. They were very accommodating and we got a nice sunny spot on the busy patio. We ordered a mojhito and Long Island ice tea. They were average or below average. But then the tandoori chicken pizza arrived it was outstanding! We didn't stay long but we would go back on a sunny day and try the pizza with beers next time!

“Good pizza, great view!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

This place is a little off the beaten path. The pizza was very good. Throw in a couple of beers and the pizza is great! Really enjoyed being able to kick back and watch the bay while we ate our food! Had a personal feel that we really liked. Appreciated the waitress taking time to chat with us. We will go back for lunch our next trip up to Victoria.

“Accommodated and well fed!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

After shopping, we arrived at the Lido for dinner to find the restaurant was sold out to a group arriving in an hour. However, the hostess seated us at a table overlooking the water to watch the setting sun. We enjoyed the Abruzzi Breeze pizza and martinis. The pizza had an excellent thin crust with plenty of toppings cooked to perfection! The martinis, delicious and too easy to drink. Over an hour later, we finished and were gone before the group arrived. The service was great all around. A great finish to a downtown Victoria afternoon. Thank you to the staff for being very accommodating!

“The View...The Beer...the Food”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Tucked away from the craziness of town yet easy to access. LOVED the view of the downtown harbour while enjoying great food. I have been here a few times and always enjoy the lively activity of boats and planes....it is entertaining. Recommend the double baked wings, of course the pizza and even the giant burrito! Great beers on tap and friendly staff.

“Great view and average food”
Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

I have been here a few times with friends and the atmosphere has always been great however the weight staff seems very concerned with socializing instead of making sure paying customers have what we need.
Although this is a nice local bar to go to, the staff should stop treating it like a club house and more like a place of work.
