Good food, fun to do once, but I wouldn't choose to wait in line again for it.

Its one of the best "truck" food places in Victoria if you don't mind waiting in line to place your order (at least 30 minutes). During the summer, when the weather is nice, its ok to be in line waiting, but I'd rather not (weather is on the rainy side here and being right on the waterfront makes... read more

Love the food so much, fish tacos are unreal. I loved how the restaurant is in an old sea can and overlooks victoria harbour. The food is so fresh and it's just awesome all around

Fresh, delicious, cheap, great setting on the harbour. Arrive a bit early at peak eating time, there is usually a line, but it goes quickly. The chowder is world class, so before you tuck into your tacone or fish & chips, have a little cup.

A great harbour destination. There are a variety of Fish and Chips to choose from and much to see from stools facing the harbour.

The fish n' chips or fish tacones are delicious. I crave the food and spend a lot of summer days down there. Love the location and the chowder is a must. On the day I was there I got all the bits of chips. Small but crispy.

Everyone who takes a trip to Victoria should plan on getting lunch here. Some of the best fish and chips anywhere, and though somewhat pricey for what is essentially a food truck it is worth it for the experience of eating delicious food right out on a dock. You will see tour boats come and go, and may need to... More

Red Fish Blue Fish....sooooooo good. I have not eaten everything on the menu even though I always intend on ordering items not eaten before. The reason for this is that their fish and chips are soooooo good, I order them every time now. The chips are the best in town. No need to say more about that. The fish is... More

The person who thought of this is a genius , a take out in an old metal container, Great Location, Great views. Watch out for the sea gulls, cheeky devils. Be prepared to line up, pretty much at any time of the day. You know the food is fresh, cooked before your eyes. Enjoy Victoria !

Heard so many fantastic comments about this place, they must be true I thought, as every time I walk past there’s a huge line up … Last Friday my co-worker and I decided to take an early lunch (11:30) it was a lovely sunny day, we thought we’d walk down and check out the line up.. to our surprise it...
