“Great Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

The restaurant was nice, as well as the staff. They were friendly and helpful. The restaurant is a short walk from the harbour. The food was delicious - I recommend the salmon dish. The seafood was great and I would eat here again.

“A good evening out!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

After cocktails at the Bengal Bar at the Empress hotel ( go there!) four of us had dinner here.

Quite a larger restaurant with a buzzy atmosphere and cheerful service. Food was good, tasty and generous in size. This is not haut cuisine but we enjoyed it and would consider going again when next in Victoria. You need to book in the holidays.

“lobster tacos and sushi.. .amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

There was a long wait at the flying Otter, the host there recommended Nellies, really glad she did. Lobster mini tacos were unbelievably good, as was the sushi and kids salmon. We were originally told there's going to be a wait, but we had barely sat at the bar and a table is ready for us.
Didn't find the pricing exorbitant, discovering that the reality of traveling with a family of 4 is that meal time is never cheap :-)
Nice decor, friendly service, would eat there again.

“Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Wonderful seafood selections, very fresh seafood, friendly staff, great view of the bay and parking close by. A bit on the pricey side, but was worth it.
