This is a takeout restaurant in a cargo container on the walkway beside the harbour. The first time I went it was a windy day about 2:00. There wasn't much of a wait and the food was incredible. I sat over in the covered patio and it was tolerable. The second time I tried to go was about 1:00 and there must have been 25 people in line that tells you how good it is. I chose not too wait. When I go back I will likely get my order to go rather than in a plastic basket and tray and go past the covered patio and sit on the steps overlooking the harbour. Ah, life would be so good!

We had salmon tacones that were absolutely delicious! The staff was friendly and the fish is fresh! I strongly recommend stopping here if you're ever in Victoria for authentic fish n chips!

The BEST food. Fresh and well-seasoned. You sit outside only, so be prepared for weather. The line up for this place is incredibly long, but it really moves fast. Well worth the wait!

Think food truck type concept, only it's a metal container converted dockside dishing out the freshest of seafood daily, to lineups of die hard fans. Absolute freshness, amazing tastes will not disappoint. Tis true you will have to stand in line longer than you'd thought you'd ever be willing to wait for food, but worth the extra effort in order to savor the fare. Given you are literally on Victoria's harbour, there is much to entertain you while you wait. The menu is extensive and good value for generous portions. This set up would never last if it were not for the ambiance of it's seaside location in tandem with perfect seafood each and every time.

Each year I fly to Victoria for spring break. I'm leaving for Victoria on Monday I'm so excited to go back and eat their again.
It's somewhat tucked out of the way, beautiful view. It's all outside which is hard when its cold but I guess what makes it so unique.
It's great food, something to keep in mind when looking for a place to eat.
