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.
