This bistro never disappoints. The food is perfectly prepared, the service top notch and the intimate, warm ambience is welcoming. We had late arriving dinner guests that the restaurant graciously accommodated. This in turn made our daughter's birthday extra special. We are very lucky to have this restaurant in Qualicum!

I had the file mignon, cooked to my request, size appropriate for my appetite. Mussels were offered as the feature appetizer...yum. The lamb dish was also delicious and perfectly cooked, and good balance... More

The quaint town of Qualicum Beach boasts many excellent restaurants. Bistro 694 is located on Memorial Avenue which brings you into the town centre from the inland island Hwy. There are not a lot of tables so reservations are a must. The menu offers something for every palate and our meals were exquisite. We were served by a knowledgeable waiter... More

Intimate atmosphere with excellent food. Ordered the Seafood Crepes and the Pork Tenderloin Medallions, both were excellent. However the Flourless Chocolate Cake for dessert is absolutely sublime.

We also waited almost an hour for our order (I think there was a screw up in the kitchen), and they gave us a half cup of soup (which was about 4 spoonfuls) as a consolation prize. I think I'll go back, but I... More
