“Mussels were great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Fish store food was very good, salmon fishwitch, mussels, clams, fritters! They also cleaned, packaged up our fresh fish we caught on a fishing charter there. Very reasonable and quickly done within 24 hours! It is hard to snag a table at Fisherman's Warf when it is busy!

“Freshly Prepared seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

The Fish Store is a real delight. Each order is freshly cooked whilst you wait (not for long though) and if you can find a vacant seat at the wharf-side tables, enjoy the view across the harbour.
We had a Salmon Taco and a Salmon toasted sandwich with all the trimmings. Very tasty and very reasonably priced. We'll definitely make another visit next time in Victoria.

“Skip the long line next door at Barb's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Barb's Fish and Chips spends tens of thousands of dollars in marketing to tourists and hotels and the lines attest to this fact. However, right next door at the Fish Store you will have a far superior meal. Fresh SUSTAINABLE seafood both to buy ready-made and raw to take home. The fish tacos were outstanding. They are served with a smoky, spicy salsa that is simply delicious. Add soft corn tortillas, crisp cabbage and fresh cilantro and you've got a real winner. We had both the salmon and the cod; the local fish is bought right off of the fisherman's boats so it couldn't be fresher. Fresh steamed dungeness crab, steamers and oysters. Closes at 7 on summer evenings - we met one couple who traipsed all the way from downtown Victoria just after they closed and they were very disappointed. Don't miss this gem. After dinner take a stroll around to see the floating homes.
