“THE OYSTER BAR IS WORTH A VISIT............”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

We dined at both the "buck-a-shck" oyster bar and Pescatore's on separate evenings and have to say that the food was great at both BUT the 3 doz oysters freshly shucked for $36bucks in the bistro, blew us away........Fresh and well presented. what more can you ask for? Forget the chowder.....thin and sparse seafood.

“Great seafood place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

If you like fresh seafood , this is the place for you.. I had lobster and it was done wonderfully. Everyone in the group had nothing negative to say. Place is located downtown Victoria and you can walk to ice cream for desert.

“Fresh and wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Its not inexpensive but the money is well spent. I started at the oyster bar and then wanted more seafood choices so walked into the main restaurant. It was Friday night and they still sat me quickly, even as a party for one. The service was speedy but not rushed, and attentive. Most important was the food that was very fresh and delightful. I had a scallop and scampi dish that easily could have come out too heavy but was perfect, followed by a guilt pleasure b/c it was my birthday of banana foster. And my server put a candle on it :)
I would definitely go back just know its expensive, but you wont be disappointed.

“One of the better places in Victoria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

After a long day playing tourist in Victoria it was 5'oclock and we were looking for a place to eat. Walking in we asked if we would need a reso and the recommended it as they were busy later however it was absolutely dead at 5! So ill definitely recommend going for an early dinner to avoid the rush :) Our server was incredibly obliging and considerate of one of our friends diet restrictions and took the time to help her pick out an item on the menu. It was a little pricier but it was seafood which is a little more costly and it was worth the quality of the meal we had! Very neat building as well! We were told it was a hundred years old and the unique fan system on the cieling was made from old candelabras that were used in the old dance hall upstairs! Definitely a place everyone should stop at!
