Top notch menu and service. We ordered a variety of dishes and they were all very tasty. The cedar plank salmon was the best I’ve ever had. The harbour location is great at any time of day. Reservations are a good idea.

Food is always great & service is excellent. Our favourite waitress is Mardene; very knowledgeable about the wine & so friendly. Always go to Nautical Nellies when visiting Victoria!!

The three of us had an amazing lunch here. We had the lobster roll, crab grilled cheese and the seafood crock pot. All were really good! It was pricey, so I'm glad we went for lunch.

We are not a legally registered wheel chair entrance business because of the age of the property. But that being said we do have a side entrance that we have had many wheel chairs come through with no issues. Call ahead... More

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.
