We were told not to miss this venue and when we went we sure weren't disappointed!! Great harbour views and atmosphere, friendly service, terrific food, great value. Don't miss this when you're touring the harbour at Victoria!!!

The sun was shining the day we were at Red Fish Blue Fish, so we didn't mind waiting in line on the pier. No one else minded either. The food's simple but worth the wait - fish and chips in various guises and something called a "tacone", which is your fish and slaw wrapped in a tortilla cone. Outdoor seating... More

As somebody that does not usually eat fish, I can recommend this place. A kiosk on the boardwalk area at the end of Johnson Street with no inside seating. One of the most famous and best fish and chip places in Canada apparently. The queue was very long taking around 30 minutes to get served at the kiosk window. One... More

Tuna taco was delicious. Can't get fish much fresher than this. Service is friendly and fast. The fries are also really really good. And you can't beat the view!

Simply wonderful fish to go from a sea-side location. Part of the great Victoria waterfront. Get there early as their are always lineups.

This is a unique place. It is not a sit-down restaurant but there is seating on the wharf in front and beside this establishment. The menu includes seafood chowder, fish tacos, fish and chips etc. The prices are average and week worth it!! It is not unusual to have a lineup of 10 or more people waiting to order. You... More

We ate here immediately after getting off the ferry. The tempura battered halibut was outstanding. Their soup of the day was coconut Marsala curry and was fabulous. The chips (fries for those of us from the US) were just okay. The next day we tried Barb's fish and chips at the Fisherman's Wharf. Their chips were better, but their batter... More

The line was indeed 40 minutes long but it was a beautiful day. The fellow taking our order said it was that way all the time. I found the fries tasty and crisp. Soft drinks are available in cups without ice but bottled drinks (like cream soda) can be purchased as well. The fish was juicy and flavorful, with just... More

In a city well known for its Fish and Chips this place lives up to the expectation. The Fish and Chips were some of the best I have ever had in my travels. The real treat for me though was the deep fried pickles. By far the best I have ever found in Canada so far.

Thank Trevor J
