we had a great evening of catching up in a comfy booth. The food was palate enticing, imaginative, well presented and delicious. The desserts were a standout feature.

This place lives up to all the hype! Very friendly staff, and exceptional food. What we liked about it as well is that it has the standard of a fine dining restaurant, but also feels very relaxed and casual. We would recommend going earlier, as the fewer people the better, as it can get quite loud when full, especially if... More

We were on the way from Auckland to Waitomo and looking for a place to grab a quick lunch and stopped off in Hamilton. A quick check on Tripadvisor showed Victoria Street Bistro at the top of the listings so we tried it out: fabulous food and great service. The desserts were to die for. Wish we had spent longer...

We had an early dinner at The Victoria Street Bistro this evening. First time visiting and certainly will not be our last. The food, wine list and service were faultless. The 'cured beef' and tortellini were superb as starters and the Lamb Neck special for mains - to die for. In addition to the wonderful food - the Bistro had... More

Visited on a Tuesday night, and was attended to courteously for the duration by a very friendly staff member. The food was very nice, the wine list excellent, and the ambience warm with a touch of sophistication. Great place to go for a business dinner, or for a treat night out.

We purchased the grabone voucher as we thought it was a great way to enjoy something new that we all had not been to before (4 of us). We were all very pleased with the food and service. We all live in Auckland and decided a mini road trip would be nice for the day. I've eaten at a few... More
