This is one of the best restaurants in Kanada, great food, talented waiter and great atmosphere. The fishplatter was cooked almost to perfection. Wished we had a restaurant like this in Switzerland.

Visit 28.09.14. We had been whale watching and found this restaurant by chance. We were quickly seated and the waitress, Mardene, was attentive and helpful. We enjoyed the seafood menu and all of the courses were of an excellent quality.

A wide range of fresh, well-prepared seafood, including sushi. The place was packed on a Saturday night and reservations are advised.

We visited this restaurant this summer while in Victoria. Round and about this place are a plethora of other restaurants, ergo competition must be fierce. On the night we visited we had tried to get into a couple of other places but they were rammed with waiting times of 2 hours plus for a table. No such problem at here.... More

Seafood was good but the rice was sub par. Somewhat dulled the entire meal as I do enjoy good rice and most any vegetable. Great location and friendly professional staff made for a very enjoyable evening.

A friend picked us up from the airport and before giving us a fantastic tour of Victoria, asked if we'd like to grab a bite to eat. It didn't take long to find Nautical Nellies. I am a grilled cheese fiend, so naturally I decided on the Grilled Crab and Cheddar Sandwich. I have to admit, I normally find crab... More

We sat outside, and had a light lunch. I had a seafood sampler and my husband had fish and chips. My sampler was served on and interesting tower box, but that actually made it more difficult to eat. The food was good, but not outstanding.
