Have heard that Bisque is a "must try" restaurant for a long time, despite their somewhat "strip mall" location. The restaurant is small, however they stagger their reservations so the one server (at least when we were there) can manage the room effectively and the kitchen and plate meals in a timely manner. Food was excellent. We had the escargot/spinach... More

Had a late lunch, and chose Bisque because of its high Tripadvisor rating. The place is lovely, small and quaint. Daily specials were on the front board, and luckily we were able to get one of the specials still, as it was late. Service was great. The Seafood stuffed sole was very good. The spinach salad with a chicken breast... More

The food is good with a selection of fresh fish as well as meats & chicken. We have been there many times and would highly recommend it. If it is larger groups phone for a reservation as it is a small restaurant.

Bisque is in an unassuming location and is distinctly unpretentious. The menu accommodates a range of tastes with an emphasis on west coast, seafood and local cuisine. Value is created with in house accents and congenial, efficient service.The wine menu is modest but perfectly adequate. Three of us enjoyed our meals immensely in an environment where conversation was no struggle... More

We've been going to Bisque for a few years now. Special occasions dinners, meals with friends from out of town, or just an impromptu lunch for the two of us. No matter what or when, we've always been thoroughly pleased with the quality and flavour of the food, the value, and the service. They try to feature as much local... More

We went to bisque to celebrate a birthday. Our booth was in the window, lighting was perfect. The menu is not extensive but still lots of variety. Everything was fresh, well cooked and beautifully presented. There are special little touches that would make it seem a very high class restaurant yet the prices are very reasonable. It was a fantastic... More

We have talked about coming here several times for years. Never did until tonight. Excellent quality of food and service in a quiet atmosphere. No less than 8 veggies on the plate with the Snapper special. My wife had the Oscar Schnitzel special. She kept going on about how good the veggies were. . . Chocolate mousse finished us off....

For those who have already found it, the charm of bisque comes as no suprise. The fast paced lunch changes to a relaxed evening out. Just steps away from the Best Western and Old House Hotel and Spa our Fresh West Coast Menu includes local seafoods,lamb, house made fresh pasta, AAA steaks and a nightly fresh sheet. fully licenced
