This was the best find in food in all of Victoria. Fresh whole tuna, salmon are cut, sliced and prepared at the back of this little take-out only kiosk on the waterfront. The fish chowder had lots of fresh fish in it and had a...More

I heard good things about this place. We waited over an hour in line. The soup was really good but the fish and chips was average; nothing special. Not sure it was worth the wait.

This place recommended by my Hotel which was also o the waterfront. Funky little business that seems to take it in. Probably should have been more adventurous when ordering and dive into their specialty tacos which the hotel told me to do. Chickened out a...More

Best fish and chips I’ve had in a long time. These will be hard to beat. Worth waiting in the lines for this meal. Beat the lines by arriving for an early lunch at 11:00 or so when they open. The halibut was so fresh...More

There is a reason why there are huge line-ups for this place. You get fresh seafood cooked to perfection at a reasonable price.What else can you ask for? Do not pass up the clam chowder, rich, flavourful, a little spicey,with clams, potatoes and corn.

Ok so I spent a while wandering around looking for this place. Turns out that it is right next to the bay. It’s a small hut surrounded by picnic tables. I got there and I lined up behind about 10 people. I typically don’t do...More

Great view, nice atmosphere. The food is good, but not super filling. Pretty much all of the menu items are fish, well cooked. The pier is pretty, but a little difficult to find.

Unless you know where to look, it's easy to miss this hidden gem. A food truck actually stationed on the wharf, this small place offers huge pieces of fish and "chips" in a takeaway basket. Wharf seating is limited, and the line to order can...More

This place is more of a fast-food take-out joint. I would recommend only for lunch and really only on a sunny day!

Red Fish is located just below Warf Street, just beyond the seaplane terminal. If you are coming in from a cruise ship, the cruise busses drop you off on Government street and so it is just one block over (look for the... More
