OK, this is the only place we ate in Hamilton, but what a meal! The oysters were fresh with a lovely dipping sauce and the crispy pork hock with Thai salad lived up to all the rave reviews. The wine list is a little pricey, but good quality, ditto the food. If you only eat in one place in Hamilton,... More

We enjoyed our night and amazing food but for the price (spent nearly $400 for two adults and two teens) we will probably see what else is in Hamilton. When entering we were taken back a little...

This place deserves the rave reviews. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Food was awesome. Atmosphere was great - even with a very loud party making a lot of noise.

My husband and I went in for lunch specifically for the chicken parmagiana. We had been reminiscing about a trip to Melbourne and the wonderful, hearty chicken parma that was featured in so many of the Italian restaurants there, a quick online search showed that the Victoria Street Bistro offered chicken parma, and a parking spot opened up directly in...
