The title says it all. I love fish and chips (who doesn't) and have eaten them from coast to coast in both Canada and the US. Red Fish Blue Fish is the best as long as you don't mind the lineup. Located along the Victoria waterfront and operating out of a couple of shipping containers this place puts out amazing... More

I am not sure why this says it is temporarily closed because it was open today. We got the halibut and chips, cup of chowder, and the taco with the mixture of seafood. Everything was delicious and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who comes here to visit.

This wonderful outdoor fish stand just reopened for the season and it did not disappoint. They have stools and umbrellas and even on a cool February day business was steady. The staff were fast and friendly and obviously enjoy what they do because they were singing karaoke while they worked. It was a great atmosphere. We had the cod and... More

We've been here several times and never been disappointed. Excellent and fresh fish and chips! The wait in line is worth it, but this time of year no waiting.

I don't know how they do it but the seafoof I had here was outstandingly good. Told it was popular with lines forming as soon as it opens , we fortunately found a quiet time, possibly due to the rain. A gourmet treat of deep fried oysters, fish, scallops and the Canadian speciality, poutine which is French Fries topped with... More

Dropped by for a very quick lunch before rushing back to the ferry terminal. Ordered a lovely seafood chowder, fish tacos, and salmon on a bed of salad. Got there right when they opened, and within minutes, a long line formed! The food was good and the view of the harbour even better!

There is always a lineup and there is good reason for that - the food is amazing! Try the fried oyster sandwich or cod dog and fries - so yummy!! The improved seating area is also s big plus - watching boats and marine life while you enjoy lunch!

There's nothing like eating fish and chips right on the harbour! Get there by or before 11am if you want to wait in line for less than an hour. We got there around 1045 or 11 on a Sunday and waited about 20 minutes to order, another maybe 10 or 15 for the food, but it was completely worth it!... More
