The last day of their season...

R/B fish is delicious every single time my wife and I go there. We had fish tacos from the daily special. Perfect crispy batter and tender halibut. Delicious picante sauce, great slaw mix. Yes, we had to line up, even on the last day of the year...for a very good reason - they're the best... read more

You know how good it is by the line of people willing to wait their turn. The wait is worth it! Great location on the harbor and halibut and chips to die for!! Our out of town guests all insist and going there and who pays for it the next time has been the prize in a hockey bet.

Red Fish Blue Fish is a little place right by the water. The line is always long, but the food is good! They are pretty quick making the food, however. There isn't an indoor sitting area, but there is a sitting area right on the dock. It is the perfect place to go on a summer's day!

The fish and chips were very good. The line was long but this is a popular place for good reason. Service was fast and location on the water made this a fun lunch stop.

Grew up in Victoria moved away before this place opened. We always go to Red Fish Blue Fish when we are in Victoria. Line ups are long but worth the wait. Chowder and Oysters are amazing. Wife loves the Halibut, I prefer the Tacones. Everthing is great. .....5 stars

The restaurant offers excellent oyster burger at a decent price. Their food is excellent, but if you go in winter or spring, you might freeze 'cos you'll have to eat outside.

This place has a huge line up and I have left it many times in frustration. I have eaten there on occasion too though. The fried oysters are good but not exceptional. The fish and chips are ok too. The seating is really hard to come by. The view is wonderful in the inner harbour though. There is a food... More

I admit, I am an impatient man. Upon getting in the 40 minute line, I was immediately ready to go. What was I doing waiting 40 minutes for the equivalent of a. Food truck. But my wife convinced me that we had time to wait, and it wouldn't kill us. Boy was I glad she did, this ended up being... More

The line up is real and it's worth it. Just try and pick a day when the weather is decent because your eating outside on a dock. Fish and chips, great, not cheap but worth it compared to what your likely to get else where.
