The line up was long, but it moved smoothly. The staff was friendly and courteous. Food was good. The fish was fresh and tasty. I walked by a couple of days in a row before stopping and each time the line was long. That's a...good sign.More

Yes this place is busy but on a Thursday still needed to wait 20 minutes for one piece of cod & chips? Let alone the size is small for what it cost. Oil was not clean and everything was greasy.

Red Fish Blue Fish is a fish shack located on the harbour with primarily standup dining. The menu is simple, the food is delicious and the there is excellent value. Our party of six had the cod and chips and salmon, cod tempura and tuna...tacones. The portions were generous and the Fish is fresh; the coleslaw accompanying each item was fresh and refreshing; the tempra coating was not oily; and the tacone tortilla was softy and tasty. You can order online and avoid the lineup and wait as the food is made to order.More

Excellent as per usual. Fresh fish, nice and light crispy batter. Coleslaw is to die for. The view at lunch is worth $1 million. It’s a really great date place. If you love fish and good company bring your favorite boy/girl there, you can’t go...wrong.More

My daughter loved the fish and chips and I really enjoyed the tuna tacones (so much I came back another time). Great place to sit and look at the harbour.

The food is amazing-come hungry; it is hard to decide which plate is better, so you just have to try them all. The chowder is so tasty, you will be licking the bowl. The tacos are so flavourful and fresh--again it is hard to determine...which is the best: tuna, lightly battered cod, or one of each. The fresh from the grill is amazing and filling. Enjoy the view while enjoying the food.More

The fish and chips are awesome, freshly prepared and hot. The tacos were unexpectedly good and highly recommended. Fries are ok. 15 minutes from waiting to order and receiving the food, but worth the wait. Cod is more moist than the halibut. Wasn't a fan...of the chowder, not to my taste.More
