It’s a great place to eat lunch, it's a food stand located adjacent with Victoria’s wonderful Iinner harbourer. Massive flavours engulf their fish tacos and fish and chips. They have a lot of strengths, but the vast menu selections are mind boggling. This place is run by people who care. The only drawback is Hugh the lineups, but hey there’s... More

This place is a must in Victoria. Expect to line up for half an hour (at least). Only outdoor sitting available. On a sunny day it was very nice to sit and look at the Victoria Harbor. I had BC Halibut. It was aaaaamazing. People around me had grilled salmon and Tacones, which all looked and smelled great. Portion sizes... More

Best fried oysters I've had. They were not over cooked but cooked enough. Fresh like you can taste the sea water. Not gritty at all. My salmon tacone was perfect. One was plenty in a flour tortilla. You can get flour or corn. The cod and chips were cooked perfectly. The piece of fish was hearty and thick. A little... More

Loved it all - the halibut was fresh and moist and the batter delightfully hot, crunchy and just a bit greasy. The fries were crispy and delicious. Sooo good!! Right across the road from the Empress, on the warf. Casual outdoor seating where you can find it.

This little restaurant sits on the dock and consists of 2 sea cans converted into a kitchen. There was quite a lineup when we went at 7 but it moved through everyone quickly. The girl that took my order was so friendly and gave me a great smile even though she was working hard. We had the halibut fish and... More

The lineups are long but well worth the wait. Had my regular salmon and chips, accompanied by the chowder - highly recommended.

This is not to be missed if you are in Victoria for lunch, we only had the Halibut and Wild Salmon in batter with fries and a little salad, but have never tasted fish and chips like it, the freshness and quality was exceptional not to be missed, you may have to queue but the wait is worth it I...

By far the BEST Fish & Chips in the Inner Harbour area. A favorite with the Locals. They are located right beside the Float Plane Wharf. Lots of Action on the water & a Great View. As they offer only informal On - Wharf Dining, it can be Chilly on a windy and cool evening. Take a Jacket or Sweater... More

I had their signature tacones and halibut for lunch. I loved the location where sitting on the dock watching float plane take off and land. You must try their Tacones. It is worth to wait.
