Red Fish Blue Fish @ Victoria BC

Continuing with more Victoria post! We got to Victoria late in the afternoon. All because DH wanted to make a detour to Richmond for early lunch before catching the BC ferries across to Victoria. By the time we got to Victoria, it was too early for dinner but we were very hungry due to the early lunch. So we decided to get some fish and chips at Red Fish Blue Fish.

I read lots of great reviews about this place and since it was within walking distance from the hotel, we went in search of it. We had a little trouble finding it since they are off the road and down on the docks. There was only a small sign from the road that would have easily been missed if we were driving. I was also expecting to find a little shack, so I was really not expecting this!!

They were using a container instead! Pretty cool, I think! This is a no-frills kind of place. So no fancy seating around. The only available seatings were these stools set up right by the water on the dock and a little bar-like table at the back of the dock.

There were 3 different types of fish available for fish & chips – halibut, salmon & cod. We ordered the halibut. It came with fries, coleslaw & tartar sauce.

The tempura battered halibut was very good. Very fresh since everything was made to order. Lil’ C enjoyed the fish so much that she even forgot to eat the fries. Normally she will eat the fries before any other food. They are also known for their fish tacones and sandwiches. Here’s a link to their menu.

and you definitely can’t beat this view while enjoying the food. We got to see seaplanes landing and taking off and even a boatload of visitors coming in from the whale-watching trip.

I wish I could make fried fish that came out that beautiful. I believe you must use a deep fryer to receive such a nice crust and since there is only 1 of me it’s a waste of cooking oil. I guess I’ll just continue to go out to eat my fish.

Hey BlurMommy, glad to have you with us in beautiful Victoria! You picked a darn nice time to come, too!

I would say there are only two other places in town where the fish is as good as RFBF, and nowhere that’s got quite as nice a view as that — you picked very well!

I hope my review on US was one of the reasons you went, and I’m glad you enjoyed it.

I was at Red Fish Blue Fish in August 2009 and was amazed by how tasty their food was. We took muscle and tuna wraps and both got our mouths watering!! Their coleslaw is not the best, but overall food and rustic presentation of their “container with a hole” was awesome. They always have a huge line up for food, but the wait is totally worth it!!

When you order the halibut you have to keep your fingers crossed you don’t get Cod. I get halibut about 75% of the time
