“Excellent food and gluten free!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

We found this bistro quickly on line and discovered a real gem, nice atmosphere good service and a large gluten free selection - tasty gluten free. I had an excellent kale salad and the scallops were very tasty - both appetizers and enough for dinner. The server choose the wine which was paired well with my meal.
We will be back

“excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

We loved going into Oak Bay and feeling like we werent tourists for the night. It is an intimate restaurant lovingly run with people who care about the food and the experience of the diner. The meal was imaginative and very tasty and gave us an insight to the quality of life for a victorian suburb. off the beaten track but easy to find by car.

“Fabulous .... as usual”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is a wonderful little bistro in Oak Bay - only 10 minutes from downtown but so worth the short trip.
The food is always creative and excellent and a new wine list brings more choices and diversity at reasonable cost. Last year they celebrated their 15 anniversary - there are many reasons for their longevity.

“Another Great Meal at Blighty's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

When I was recently looking for great restaurant to host a gathering for some friends, our favourite neighbourhood restaurant came to mind. Blighty's Bistro has been a local institution for some 18 years and once again they did not disappoint! When the 11 of us showed up, owner and host Richelle warmly welcomed us. With two of our friends restricted to a gluten-free diet, we wondered if this would pose any challenges for Blighty's. Not so!! The eclectic menu provided a wide range of delicious gluten-free options along with other delicious non GF options. Virtually every one raved about their meal! It reaffirmed what we already knew- Blighty's is a great restaurant!
