I was probably one of the oldest customers in the place but I thoroughly enjoyed drinks and dinner at the bar in this very busy establishment. My daughter and I wandered in after examining the posted menu and were both very pleased. We chose the bar to avoid a wait. Service was excellent, as were the drinks and meal. Fresh ingredients were the star!

Third trip to 10 Acres Bistro, and it continues to impress. Superb staff. Completely unphased by the most difficult of dietary requirements. A lovely unpretentious place for a superb night out. Reservations strongly recommended. Happy hour is very good value.

To be honest, I'm surprised with the great reviews of this place. It might be that this restaurant is more for lunch than dinner but we didn't find the food to be near as good as many of the other restaurants we went to during the week. The food wasn't memorable as was pricey for not being very good. The service was also not very good. It took almost an hour to get our food and it was a struggle to get refills on our water. We plan on coming back to Victoria but won't be eating here again.

Mostly farm to table but great dishes; big helpings; very nice, but small outdoor patio (get there early)

This place is usually busy so i recommend calling ahead and having reservations. But talk about Farm to Table eating. So much of their amazing dishes are inspired with fresh foods straight from their own farm. They use a very responsible and sustainable process for all their foods. They even use the organic scraps from the restaurant towards their compost for the farm. They make their own honey, raise their own meat, grow their own seasonal vegetables, all while staying earth friendly, & non gmo responsible.This is how every restaurant should be. I will always eat here.
