This bistro has to be on your list when either living or visiting Victoria. Such a lovely feeling of warmth and home. A great location with a brilliant sheltered patio with plenty of gas fired heating. Mind you, we elected to be inside and be a bit warmer! Now while we did the "Dine Around Town" menu which only runs... More

Had dinner here with a friend, place was really busy, great service - but my entree was ok. Lamb chop that was nothing special (tasted like it was something I'd make in my crockpot) and one tiny 1/2 baby potato to go with. Friend said lunch is a lot better!

Late, very late lunch turned into a bonus for us as between 4-6 oysters are half price, so we were able to enjoy a wonderful variety of local oysters for less. Staff were very helpful, fun and attentive. Great ambience and as we were leaving 90 minutes later, the bistro was pumping. Don't miss it.

We loved our experience at 10 Acres - the food is delicious, locally sourced and nutritious. We were very excited to learn about their composting of uneaten food and their commitment to the environment. Great location right next to our favourite hotel, The Magnolia.

Made a reservation only to arrive and have all the tables broken up, we were a large group and they had us at 4 different tables and refused to move them together. We asked them to move them and were told we could move the tables how we saw fit. Not fun when they give you a mix of round... More

Your reservation was made for a group of 20 this evening, and we were extremely clear at the time of booking that we do not have 1 table that seats 20 people and that in order to book your reservation, you would be given 4 tables in a full section of our establishment. We were again clear about this fact... More

The staff at 10 Acres Bistro did a great job when we had our staff Christmas party , we took over the Bistro - there was 70 of us altogether. The food was great - good selection, cooked well and presented very nicely. The servers did a great job looking after us. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The meat and fowl both tender, well seasoned. Perfect healthy comfort food for a cold windy night in Victoria. Reid, the manager, was warm and informative. We enjoyed talking... More

A restaurant that prides itself on fresh and organic local ingredients sets it apart from many other restaurants in the area. Our meal was a great experience, the pasta was perfectly prepared and the lamb shank were great dishes. I would suggest having some of their small plates too. The quinoa fritters and hummus were very tasty and not at... More

This was my first time to 10 Acres, and it will NOT be my last, it was awesome. The service and food was delicious. My friend had the Prawn papperdelle and the other friend had the Spaghetti Bolognese, which was a little bland for her taste. I had the Chicken Pot pie, and it was delicious, the pastry was fresh...
