Fish & chips are superlative, the other dishes looked interesting. Plenty of seating outside, the Victoria water taxi stops here. Instead of tartare sauce, they have an interesting aioli. Halibut was very tender.

This sea container kitchen produces very good food in a great setting and atmosphere. Standing in line you have time to study the menu en decide what to eat. Everybody is so relaxed! The view while eating is great. Go eat there!

The halibut fish and chips were delicious. A bit pricey but worth it for sure. I have never had as good chowder as I red at Red Fish Blue Fish. MAKE SURE TO GET THE CHOWDER!

Huge waiting line, about 30-40 mins. We had a wild salmon from the grill and a BC halibut. We liked then both but specially the salmon was spectacular( ordered it with salad). So if you see a long line and you have time.. wait.

This is right on the harbor. If in a hurry or too hungry to wait 30 minutes in line this is not for you. If you are not in a hurry, this is tasty. Feels original and food is fresh. Sit right on the pier...More

I enjoyed the deep fried fish this time after craving it since the last time I ate it here three years ago. But something changed this time: They no longer serve the deep fried wild sockeye salmon. Also, the batter recipe changed. It was definitely...More

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

I concur - there is no reserved seating.. in fact, you might have problems finding seating for your group as there may not be that many seats all together. Also, I think they're closed for the season already, so if you go... More
