If you like schnitzel, this is the place for you! This was our best meal in Sidney. They couldn't do it any better in Switzerland! Friendly service and fun ambience.

Small, quaint restaurant with excellent food and service. If you like Schnitzel this is the place for you with a wide variety of Schnitzel cooked to perfection...not overcooked that is very easy to do with this delicacy. Located in the heart of the city.

Not many restaurants can make Schnitzel properly, but Bistro Suisse was perfection. It was accompanied with Spaetzle and Red Cabbage. The server ensured that everyone was 100% satisfied. We will definitely eat at Bistro Suisse again next time that we are in Sidney.

Hi there! Yes they usually are open Christmas day, but have a set menu. You really need reservations for that day and now would probably get you a table for Christmas. Don't leave it too late!
