We had lovely fish and chips here - really enoyable. Service was good and nice setting for a meal. Nice glass of wine and a beer made it an enjoyable evening.

I offered shell fish dish and had a wonderful glass of wine. Our wait person was amazing and we enjoyed his company and great humour. It was beautiful night and we were able to sit on the deck. A must place to eat

I had booked a table in advance based on TA reviews. When I booked online it asked if it was an occasion, and I noted that it was our anniversary. On arrival we were greeted and wished Happy Anniversary, and this was repeated by the...wait staff. We were also given a seat on the partial covered patio, where we could see the sunset - lovely view, and table. We had starters and mains, chowder and mussels, followed by the steelhead fish and seafood linguine. All were really good. My only issue - and it’s one that we always get in the US, but the only time we had it in Canada - is that we were just getting on with our starters when the main courses arrived. Not sure why they do this - it did appear to also happen to tables around us. Just a shame, as you then feel rushed, and mains cool off too.More

As this restaurant was close to our hotel (Victoria Regent Waterfront) we called in on the off chance of getting a table but none were available but they took our mobile phone number and within 15 minutes texted us to say a table was free....We loved the decor and ambience at Finns. We only wanted a light meal and the chowder, mussels and pizza fitted the bill perfectly. Service was great too. I can highly recommend Finns.More

We recently had dinner at Finn's during our recent stay in Victoria, while we hadn't booked we had a table outside which was lovely overlooking the harbour,and well heated with the patio heaters. We were served by MAX and well looked after, we both had...the fish and chips which was well cooked and presented. Highly recommended.More

Excellent food, fantastic service, and a view that can't be beat! Ask for a patio seat if available. If dining there i in the evening, the only disadvantage is the setting sun getting in your eyes. The staff are attentive without being over bearing, and...the food is delicious.More

We fortunately made a reservation for Finns as without one the wait would be 30-40 minutes. It can be cool eating outside, so we chose inside with a water view. Some of the tables are quite close but the extensive quality of the seafood menu...makes up for this. There is a large inside eating area as well as a bar area. The wine list is extensive and a little on the pricy side. Finns is an easy walk from the Delta Ocean PointMore

I ordered the shrimp and grilled pineapple tacos and they were amazing! Two nicely seasoned shrimp in each taco and the sweetest pineapple. The salad with goat cheese and oranges was disappointing though. The dressing was bland and needed salt and pepper.

Staff was friendly. Food quality excellent. Surprisingly, did a very decent dim sum dish. Portions are good sized. Value for the money is definitely high. A little noisy but that just shows how busy they are!
