I had a huevos rancheros type brunch option and my mother had the fish and chips. Both were excellent-the fish portion was huge, so keep that in mind. Service was good.

We always seem to find time to visit 10 Acres Bistro when in Victoria. Great staff, warm cozy atmosphere and a great menu. Food is consistently delicious and served with a smile. I'd recommend the Cobb Salad to anyone. Try it! You'll like it!
