I loved the small menu, locally sourced (mushrooms), and the the enthusiasm of our server. I look forward to another visit.
Somewhat disappointed with the experience here.The menu was quite limited and did not give any indication as to what was a starter or main course and lacked a description of the meal.
We had a starter of the mussels which were well done but a very small portion and the toast that went with the mussels were burnt.
The main course was a small portion for the price and my partners fish was overdone and way too salty.The accompanying vegetables were not the freshest either.
Bar500 needs to up its act if it wants to compete in this market.Unfortunately it has been our experience that restaurants in the tourist harbour area of Victoria often don’t have to try too hard to attract customers.We left feeling that we had overpaid for a meal with too small portions of rather indifferent quality.
Food and service was awesome! Would recommend.
Lovely dinner at Bar 500. The menu is brief but well thought out. Had the catch of the day and it was excellent - sides really complimented the fish. Tasty craft cocktails and a delicious cappuccino to finish the meal. Great service and excellent value!
Food was salty and virtually inedible with "foraged" weeds and potato foam that was more like toothpaste in texture. Over priced and underwhelming to say the least. One of the worst meals we have ever had. No question.
Have been here a few times and always a lovely experience.
Excellent food, great service and a lovely dining space!! I highly recommend the hot chicken sandwich.
Delicious food & excellent service.
Mark is a wonderful server/mixologist! He makes Bar 500 very welcoming! Amazing food and drinks! The patio atmosphere is to die for! On the quiet side which is nice :)
Will keep coming back!
The food was delicious and service was amazing. A nice little patio with limited covers seating. We will be back again!
Great food, great service! We look forward to our next visit.
amazing food, amazing drinks and best of all: amazing service. The ambience is definetly amazing!
The tastiest pasta I’ve had in years!
One of the best new restaurants in Victoria! The pasta was fresh and some of the tastiest I’ve had in a long while, the beet tartare is definitely recommended, and the tiramisu hit the spot for a sweet treat at the end of our meal
