This restaurant was really good. The salmon was great on the beet salad. Yummy!! The house red wine was really good without being too pricey.

Very good. Husband had the west coast seafood bowl and it was amazing. The flavor was incredible. The seafood was all fresh. And it was served straight from the oven.

Nautical Nellies is conveniently located by the Wharf in Victoria. We highly recommend reservations as it is a favorite of both locals and visitors. Service was excellent as well as the quality of food. Their beet and goat cheese salad was excellent.

I've only had happy hour here, but can highly recommend it for that. We sat outside on their deck with a lovely view of the inner harbor. Half price freshly shucked oysters on the half shell and $4 pints. Both delicious. Need I say more?

Nautical Nellies has been serving delicious premium aged steak and Ocean Wise seafood to Victoria for 20 years. Overlooking the inner harbour, the restaurant's heated patio and cozy interior set the tone to enjoy great food and wine from our award-winning list. The oyster bar hosts a large selection of fresh oysters with varieties from the Pacific Northwest and East Coast, and allows guests to watch their oysters be shucked right in front of them. Adjacent to the oyster bar is a traditional, gourmet and fusion sushi bar that serves beautifully plated sushi of the finest quality.
