A great little gem for a quick lunch or snack

We live here and love this place. Good selection of tacos and other stuff. You cannot beat the atmosphere on warm sunny day.

Wow,best chipotle coconut chowder! Had heard about this seas container turned outdoor food place and it was great. Nice seating area on the dock, watched an otter family playing. Some areas covered in the event iit rains. Were early, no line up but by the time we were finished it was huge! Great tacones too, would definitely go back.

THIS PLACE IS THE BOMB. I have never had a bad meal here. If you go to Victoria and do not eat here, you are dumb. The staff is friendly and the food is off the chart. The line is L O N G, but well worth the wait.

We visited red fish blue fish twice whist staying in Victoria and we had excellent meals on both occasions. Visited early evening firstly (no queue at all) and then at lunch time on our second trip (waited in queue for about 25mins). The grilled tuna was awesome, as were the salmon and tuna tacones but the chowder was incredible!! It... More

Being so highly recommended by Tripadvisor users we had to give it a try. You join the line while checking the menu, place your order and wait by the serving hatch. There was plenty of outdoor seating overlooking the harbour, some of it under cover. They serve soft drinks to go with your fish and chips - the ginger beer... More

Yes, that is correct. This chef and his team work out of a transportainer parked right on the wharf near the Empress Hotel. The menu has only a few choices and by reputation all are good. We tried the salmon tacos as a fan of fish tacos, I can say these are as good as it gets. The chef prides... More

Though the line ups were long, it was well worth the wait. The service was good , fish was fresh and presentation of the food was very appealing! The chowder was excellent and the fish and chips were not greasy but had a very light batter. The atmosphere was perfect being right on the Warf in Victoria.

Oh wow... where to begin. The fish and chips are marvelous as is everything. The fish tacos are my favorite - it is a toss-up between the tuna and the battered cod. The sides are all perfectly prepared, and the sauces unique and pair perfectly, like the caramelized shallot aioli. Fried pickles?! YES!! Get em. But be prepared to wait... More

This is the best fish and chips in Victoria! They have lovely seating areas outside along the dock and there are lots of choices on their menu. Try the deep fried dill pickle, you will want a second order! Get there early as the line-ups can get long!

Excellent Food! The 1 hour wait in line was well worth it. I love the fish taco cones and had the grilled salmon and salad another time. It is fine dinning from a food truck on the dock. Then get to enjoy eating while you watch the traffic on the harbour with float planes coming and going.
