My husband and I were unsure whether to venture upstairs when we were encouraged to by a passer by and we are so glad we did. We were immediately greeted by friendly staff and entered the warm ambience of this restaurant. We enjoyed a seafood platter to share followed by delicious main courses. I had the duck special that was... More

It's a long climb to the top of the stairs, but so worth it. You are greeted by a host and wait staff that happily escort you to your table. We went with a group of eight and had a marvelous table under the windows in the front. Our wait person had suggestions for appys and wine....and then answered all... More

If you enjoy seafood then this is the place to go! The fresh oysters are wonderful and they offer different types of seafood sauce as well. Drinks were plentiful and there is an option on the menu for everyone. Try the mussel linguine, you won't be disappointed.

We started out with some fried oysters and they were just OK. Followed by a salmon grilled burger that was just OK and my wife had the burrito that was just Ok. If just OK is good enough for you then you will love this place

I had a dish called Pacific Rim, prawns, wild... More

My husband and I love oysters. We have been coming to Ferris's for over 10 years and can say that the interior seating has improved and that there is a new outside area also. As much as we like this place it has been a bit of a disappointment in our most recent visit. As Victoria is a coastal city... More

This place has great service and the food was really good. There is not a lot of space so it is recommended to do reservations. The cocktails were tasty!

We did not go to the oyster bar upstairs instead were we're in the bistro downstairs. Food and staff very friendly. Great atmosphere.
