We read all of the Trip Advisor postings and decided to stop in after our whale watching adventure. We tried the halibut and chips, as well as a tuna taco taco and the jerk taco. All food was pretty great, though the French fries were average. Having read all of the postings, I have to say that we... read more

Crazy busy.. all the time; expect a 20 min wait minimum; fish and chips were great... choice of cod, halibut, or salmon... we had halibut and they were amazing! sitting is a bit of a problem... so scout around a bit. Prices are on the high side.. but we thought the value was good. We definitely would be back.

We went here based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was awesome. I only wish we went here on the first day, we would have gone back. It is right on the water, not hard to find but if you didn't know it was there it would look unassuming. As others have said, we encountered a long line but it moves... More

It is a food truck that is known for its fish and chips. It is on a dock in Victoria and people line up every day in good weather to eat there. The three of us went there at around 12.30 pm. The line up was long and with my impatience, I was concerned. Too my surprise the line moved... More

I had the jerk fish taco and the shrimp gazpacho, both very nice and medicinally spicy.I shall return.

We heard about this place for Fish and Chips. It's located down on the harbor and is an outside restaurant where you place your order then pick it up and eat on stools and counter tops outside. They have a variety of fish menu items served different ways. We had Cod and chips, Fish tacos, Tuna tacos, and Oysters. All... More

Working downtown provides access to this wonderful place - The line-up is long so get there early if you only have a limited time. Very good choice of yummy meals.

The first thing I want to say is the one piece of halibut I ordered and was served was possibly the best looking piece of fish I've ever had. It was thick, white, flaky, and tasty. Navigating eating it was a bit of an adventure, finding a half clean spot at one of the bar style seating areas, and trying... More

Excellent sandwiches & oysters. They are near the pier, easy to find as there is a long line most of the time. Very busy. I will recommend the Qualicum Bay scallop if they have it (seasonal). The birds around the dock are pesky :)
