I have eaten here several times and eveytime was good. My favorite is the BBQ salmon but everything I have tried so far has been good. This place is run out of a converted container turned into a take out on the wharf. There is informal seating along the hwarf if you want to pick up and eat or otherwise... More

No reservations, and sometimes 30 minute line-ups, but there is no better place to experience the Victoria waterfront by starting with some great food, and phenomenal ambiance. Salmon, Haddock, Halibut, and the catch of the day, all cheerfully prepared, and tasting like it should. I am a fan, and will always be. Dan T

Reading the other reviews here, it seems that Red Fish, Blue Fish might suffer from a bit of a lack of consistency in service quality, but, here's the thing: the place is extremely busy and the staff are run off their feet all day while cooped up in a hot little shack. I'm not making excuses for them, but I... More

This small kiosk is no secret and if you head down at a peak time (which is usually all day during the summer in Victoria) you will find yourself lined up behind 20-30 or sometimes 50 others waiting patiently in line for some of the best Fish and Chips (alongside other fare) that downtown Victoria has to offer. The food... More

Delicious. The Galley is good but Red Fish Blue Fish is phenomenal. They have perfected batter. The tricky part is getting there when it is open - bad weather will close them down, so call ahead. Worth it.

This is my home town and every time I return I must visit Red Fish Blue Fish. Best food, best ambiance, best experience. What's better than being out on the dock in the Inner Harbour eating the freshest seafood of all? I'm not even a "chips" person but last visit I had the fish and chips because it is just... More

A simple kitchen (shipping container) serving great fresh seafood. The long queue initially put me off but everybody else waited patiently.I thought that these people knew something I did not. Once I tasted the food, it all became clear. Best fish and chips in ages.

Red Fish Blue Fish is the perfect spot to eat when you're enjoying the sunshine downtown and walking along the harbour. There is usually a line up but it's worth the wait, the food is great and will keep you coming back for more.

Food has been consistently good! Be prepared for a long line up waiting to place your order, however, since this is a popular fish-n-chips stop on the Victoria inner harbor.

Great place to come when wandering around the downtown waterfront enjoying the ambiance and you smell food. There is usually a lineup but under the umbrellas, checking out the views around the harbour, it doesn't take long. To pass the time, ask your neighbours in line where their from. Worth the wait!
