The Bistro Suise is so beautiful and romantic, the food is first class. Situated in the little seaside town of Sidney By The Sea it is a must visit. Here you get that personal service which is lacking in many places.

A nice nonpretentious restaurant, good for lunch or dinner. Recommend the schnitzel. Reservations recommended in the summer for dinner. Good prices, really good food. My brother-in-law, who is from Switzerland, loves this place.

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!
