We recently had a wonderful dining experience at the Flying Otter Grill. The food was exceptional, well priced and the staff were all very pleasant and helpful. They have food specials every night, as well as drink specials. We were there on a Friday night and the appies were 2 for the price of 1 (which happens after 4pm). We split the halibut fish and chips (so good with a nice light batter).
The location is right on the waterfront, so the views are incredible. We have also been to this restaurant for lunch and it is great fun to sit and have lunch while watching the seaplanes coming and going, the whale-watching groups and all of the other activities on the water.
We had dinner out on the covered patio area which has very large ceiling heaters that keep you nice and toasty. Following dinner we strolled along the waterfront for the short walk to the IMAX theatre.
If you are visiting Victoria, or are lucky enough to live in this beautiful City, as we do, then we highly recommend that you visit this restaurant. Can't imagine that you would be disappointed.

The food was very good but this is not the place to go to have a conversation. Ever since they closed in the roof we have stopped going.

We enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. We didn't want to walk too far from our hotel, and liked the look of the menu here. It had classics and local dishes, but also different choices to the usual options 'plus fries'. The price was also reasonable - I had expected, given the location for the cost to be much higher. The service was a little unorganised to start with, and a little slow, but I think the restaurant was busier than they had anticipated for a mid-week evening. The food was good and there was a nice atmosphere. It was interesting watching the sea planes and whale watching tours take off. Worth a visit.

Used to love this place because it was so easy going, and the food was good. It's always been busy, but was always friendly. I don't think I'll be going back again, just not impressed by lippy young adult wait staff who think you're stupid because you have grey hair.
