About
Just around the corner from Victoria's Inner Harbour, Fisherman's Wharf is a hidden treasure waiting to be discovered. This unique marine destination offers food kiosks, unique shops and eco-tour adventures in the heart of the working harbour. Wander down the docks with your lunch, buy seafood fresh off the boat, see moored pleasure vessels and float homes, and watch as fishing vessels unload their wares.

Very nice place to spend an hour or two. Lots of places to buy food or ice cream. Several interesting shops too. One section had very colorful private floating homes. A couple of fishing boats were selling fish. All-in-all a very pleasant way to spend some time, especially if it's nice weather.

This is a pleasant walk mostly along the waterfront from the inner harbour area, and is an interesting place. There are about 40-50 houseboats; obviously these are people’s homes so you don’t linger outside for long, but it is fascinating to see the huge range of styles and sizes. There are several restaurants and a decent amount of seating whilst you eat, plus ice cream. There are also various other things such as whale watching and kayaking open during the daytime (but not in the evening when we went) and you can catch the water ferry too!

It’s a small area, but if you are staying close it’s worth a detour to see the colourful homes and maybe get an ice cream or fish and chips. These are peoples homes so it’s not really a place to linger; about 30 mins unless you stop for food. You can add this to a stroll around to the breakwater.

Servicen gik hurtigt, og var god. Vi fik maden hurtigt, og den smagte helt fremragende, priserne er heller ikke i helt i vejret, priser man god kan betale for fantasien mexikansk street food. Virkelige gode tacos og burittos de har ved stedet, flot udsigt nede ved havnen og sidde at kigge på både. Hvis man er på Vancouver Islands og vil have mexikansk er det her sted et must!

I was able to find it by following the signs from the harbor. It's a neat place; floating homes and shops moored to the wharf. Got a pizza and a very nice beer there.

This is a nice place if you are a non vegetarian and sea food lover .

The restaurant has a great ambience of typical Goan Picturesque.

You won't be disappointed with the non vegetarian menu.

With the. Ambience of typical beach resort and open seating the best time to be here is during the monsoons.

You might expect a waiting time of close to 15-20 minutes if you are trying for weekend.

Overall a great experience and a good staff with on time service on the orders.

So fabulous to visit. Loved the houses. The set up is great and the food a nice surprise. Definitely worth the visit although when it is not crazy busy it is much more fun.
