We went to celebrate our anniversary and were disappointed with the service. There was only one person serving the hole restaurant. There was nothing off the menu for a granddaughter and they were not willing to accommodate for her. The menu is small and expensive. The food portions were good food was delicious but we used to go to the bisque before they moved and they had a way better menu and the price range varied wish they would bring that menu back.

Gastronomic elegance of another time. Dining in a time capsule where everything is painstakingly prepared to be memorable. Slow food at its best.This is a secret place that is meant to be shared.....with the deserving, that is.


We had a delicious meal at Bisque last night to celebrate our Anniversary. We haven’t been before and thoroughly enjoyed our meals.I had schnitzel Oscar and my husband had the special red snapper. The portions were very generous with red cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower new potatoes.. Very appetizing plating, we ate every last bite. The lemon ginger cheesecake made in house was the perfect finish to the meal. The service was perfect, the decor was light and airy with lots of space between the tables. Our new favourite restaurant for special occasions!

Good place for delicious seafood with a quiet feel. I had the snapper and prawn special and it was excellent. I was surprised how big the portion was for something they took such care to make. Crab cakes also great, and my date enjoyed the seafood pasta. Lots of space between tables and server wore a mask. I hope to go back on our next visit to the area.

Suuuuper yummy lamb and steak you could easily cut with a butter knife. The sauces and veggies were really well done too.


Fantastic food and wonderful service! My husband and I each really enjoyed our appetizer and main courses. We would go back for sure!

After so many years Bisque remains my favourite dining experience on Vancouver Island. Care and attention are experienced in every detail both on and off the plate. Excellent service and a menu worth exploring from appetizers to main courses as well as the desserts. Bravo!


Excellent service. Fabulous food. We’ll definitely be back. Coconut shrimp, bisque, grilled snapper & crab ravioli!!

Superb. Excellent food...great service... lovely atmosphere at a good price overall. We'll be going back, soon and often.


To start with , the ambiance was superb, this restaurant is owned and operated by a husband and wife team, he is the chef , his lady is the server , the does a wonderful job ! The food is incredible, I will never order a fish or seafood dish but I did here, and the prawn dinner that arrived was is credible!! I so highly recommend this restaurant, you will not be disappointed!

It was my birthday dinner. Had the snapper special with ginger prawns. It was amazing and portion size was large. Orange chocolate mousse was an awesome finish to a superb dinner.
