A great place like Fishhook, one of our favourites, can't stay on top for ever. My wife and I both had chowders, and both noticed that it had lost its' pizzazz. She thought it tasted watered-down, I think they are using poorer quality smoked salmon...More

Warm, welcoming atmosphere with very good food; unusual food and food pairings. This is a new, larger sister restaurant of Fishhook's 1st Victoria restaurant on Fort St. So it offers a greater variety in a much larger venue. Worth a visit.

Wonderful Asian fushion food. Price point a bit high, but worth it. On the water. Dont remember if it is wheelchair accessible ,but should be.

If you like fish then I'd definitely recommend. Was a busy little place but well worth the wait, great food, service and atmosphere.

This is, i think, the smaller and less formal sister of Fishhook on the wharf. I ate at both, and they were great, but I actually preferred this smaller, informal venue downtown. No reservations, but it was definitely worth it to walk in and wait....More

This place is highly recommended and everyone having lunch on this day was loving their meals, except me. I ordered the Pondicherry, it was fresh, lively spiced, the basmati and pappadams were perfect. I just didn’t love the salmon. I can only conclude that I...More

Everything was just delicious, from the seafood hotpot to fishballs to the choco ganache with coconut „cream“. Super knowledgeable and friendly staff as well. Strongly recommended!

A good choice. Food was fresh and the menu different. Some of the choices seemed a bit creamy but we were all able to get exactly what we wanted. Value was fair and would certainly recommend this as one of the better options in the...More

One of my children has severe food allergies, including nuts. We were able to enjoy a delightful meal at Fishhook. Staff is super friendly and approachable. Kitchen is open so you can just ask the chef himself. Good luck!
