We were visiting Victoria and went here based on looking at their website. French-Indian fusion seafood sounded great and based on the website we expected a bit of a classy setting. It was a birthday dinner and we got dressed up for a night out....Alas, the cafe is tiny. There were two tables in total. There was one table on the sidewalk in the blazing sun. Apparently there was a patio out back but there was no service to those tables. You could order takeout and eat there. Unused tables and chairs were piled up beside our table (we had made a reservation). There was a steady stream of Skip the Dishes deliveries going on around us. There are only two wine choices available, both very average. All that said, the food was fantastic and there were a couple of interesting cocktail choices. But we ate and ran in record time.More

The Indian influences are a great way to enjoy seafood. Interesting and wonderful flavours. The seafood chowder is definitely more interesting and complex compared to a New England chowder. The salmon biryani was delightful, as were the seafood koftas. The green salad was definitely not...boring. Great take out dinner! Friendly staff!More

Excellent meal and service, the Hester creek wine was a nice touch. We had 4 mains all were great, the mussels and seafood pot were exceptional.

We keep coming back as we love the creative and delicious Indian flavoured cuisine. Love love the curry poutine with the chickpea battered fish pakoras... shared between two people with a salad and/or Indian spiced seafood chowder is the perfect meal

Their dishes never fail to impress. Been using their take out as the restaurant on Fort Street is a wee bit tight. Love house organic pickle veggies

Had the Seafood Hot Pot which was very good. In this small restaurant, staff did not wear masks and were not friendly. We ate outside, in a windy courtyard. Will not return for dine in experience.

What an amazing restaurant - the poutine with an Indian twist was the best we've ever had. We tried both salads - the 'Red Shred' and 'The Greens' and they were fresh, flavourful, and unique. The fish pakoras were like the Indian version of 'fish...& chips' with chickpea flour batter - light and oh so good. We were visiting Victoria for 3 days and we couldn't stop ourselves from coming in 3 times; we ate the food in the brick enclosed courtyard in the back which was perfect for summer dining. We'll be counting the months until we can return from the Fraser Valley.More

We ordered the Squimp toast which was a delicious start! The Biryani and the Daily Khatch were both huge portion of fresh seafood with outstanding flavors. We had enough for 2 meals and enjoyed both of them.

Great food and service - we stumbled upon this Fort Street option when looking for some good fresh fish. We both got the Sockeye Salmon marsala and it was wonderful. Hearty portions and left some rare in the middle as the Cher's suggestion. We absolutely...will be back when visiting Victoria again.More

At least 15 to 20 minutes - might be better to take a cab.

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!
