This place has the best fish tacos, soup, fish and chips. Yes the line is long but moves quickly. We ate our lunch on one of the many outdoor seating options. One of the best meals we had in Victoria

The Halibut and chips were fresh and delicious. Simple shack in the wharf with fresh air, good view, and excellent food. After 6 pm parking is free, but closes at 7pm sharp.

We followed the crowd and lined up for fish and chips at Red Fish Blue Fish on the waterfront. The line looked long but moved steadily and we had about a 20 minute wait that was spent people-watching and enjoying the sunshine. There's a choice...More

I was disappointed last visit so thought I'd give them another chance. I again had the Halibut which was fresh, good crispy batter of a little greasy. Fish was still overcooked for my tastes but if I eat here again I will ask if they...More

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...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...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!

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
