Great local spot with a view ! Handled allergy request seamlessly and enjoyed the lobster tacos as a result. Chowder and salmon were both very generous serves.

This restaurant could be located anywhere in Canada. The menu is wide ranging and the poor is poor. Stay away.

Nautical Nellies has been serving delicious premium aged steak and Ocean Wise seafood to Victoria for 20 years. Overlooking the inner harbour, the restaurant's heated patio and cozy interior set the tone to enjoy great food and wine from our award-winning list. The oyster bar hosts a large selection of fresh oysters with varieties from the Pacific Northwest and East Coast, and allows guests to watch their oysters be shucked right in front of them. Adjacent to the oyster bar is a traditional, gourmet and fusion sushi bar that serves beautifully plated sushi of the finest quality.
