A fine little restaurant on Victoria row. Met an old friend there for dinner and we enjoyed ourselves. Our first look at the menu wasn't particularly inspiring but there were some decent twists on standard apps. We shared about 4 dishes and some were quite good. The mussels were bland, largely due to a very simple broth. The potato nachos... More

Fishbones has a few areas in which to eat; inside, out on the sidewalk, and up on the roof. On this occasion we opted for the roof, which is something of a new addition. First, while the restaurant downstairs opens at 11:30, the roof area doesn't open until noon. That's understandable, because the staff has a whole lot of preparation... More

While looking for a place for dinner, we were talking down Richmond Street and stopped in to check out Fishbones. What a delight! We sat outside watching the folks walk by, listened to great street music and then along came our food. Fish fish fish...and of course enjoyed a Sangria. One table guest had a Tipsy Fishermen - oh check... More

We were looking around town for local fare and we're able to get a table here quickly. The service was prompt, the menu sufficiently diverse and the food very good. The Cajun shrimp was tasty, the haddock reportedly very good with light breading.

Had great expectations but was very disappointed. 15 minutes before water or drink order. Server seemed uninterested and was too busy talking with other staff. More head than beer. Menu claims "fresh house made pasta" but was told afterward this was untrue, although my meal was delicious despite this. Front of house is definitely giving the kitchen a bad name... More

Fishbones is one of the Murphy Group of restaurants in PEI. All are pretty good. This is their Victoria row spot. It's is great for al fresco lunches and dinners, right opposite the band stand: live music, no cars, super for people watching. Restaurants on this one block pedestrian mall are pretty similar: most have some version of fresh and... More
