We discovered a fabulous little spot literally on the water in Victoria. It's located on a dock right off the sidewalk with a little sign, we discovered it while hanging around the waterfront trying to spend our Canadian dollars before taking the ferry back to Port Angeles. The line was very very long. I think other reviews have suggested going... More

It you fly into the Victoria Harbor on a seaplane, red fish/blue fish is to your immediate left from the airport. There is a big parking lot in front of the airport, but I don't know whether it was free or not. Guessing that it is not. It is within a block of the Visitors Information Center. This is an... More

We heard that we may have to wait for our food. We did wait - almost an hour. With that being said, it was definitely worth the wait! By far the most delicious fish and chips I've ever had! Treat yourself! You won't regret it!

I've eaten here before, and that time I waited about 30 minutes total for line up and food to be ready. Yesterday I went again. The line had about 10 people in it, not bad at all. The cashier was awful, and I hate to be that guy as I work a very similar job. In 30 minutes he served... More

I had the jerk poutine and the chowder and my companion had the cod and chips and the fried oysters. All were fresh and very good. The poutine was spicy seafood on fries with sauce and green onions (not the fries, cheese curd brown gravy local dish) and was tasty although more fries than fish. The chowder was spicy and... More

We got several recommendations to eat here so we decided on a late lunch while watching the buskers. We ate here in the afternoon and the weather was amazing and the view of the ocean with the sea planes and mountains was great. Unfortunately, the fish didn't love up to the view. The haddock fish and chips we had were... More

The long queue under the scorching sun lured me to this place. But honestly, it was not as I expected. Well, to the truth I like the chips which is a real fried potato and fried fish. But it was just fried food and it tastes just like an average fried food. For a box of fish and chips, it... More

The wait is legit. If you're in line at the last umbrella, your wait is going to be 45 minutes. I don't think we'll do the wait again, with so many other restaurants nearby, but it's worth doing once. The nice thing though...they stay open longer than the 9 listing...they'll stay open and feed those in line.

If you want to benefit from the great food at this restaurant, go to the pier beside the sea planes, stand for less time than the indoor version and eat GREAT fish tacos at their kiosk on the dock for a reasonable price while enjoying the harbor sights of Victoria
