This place has the best fish tacos, and the oyster fry is incredible as well. Took home some live crab to have for supper. This place is a hole in the wall, but the food and service is fantastic.

We bought some of the smoked salmon and then a fillet to BBQ at home. Both were awesome and tasted completely different than anything you could buy at the grocery store.

A delightful and friendly cafe with a fresh seafood store. The fish tacos were our choice and they were delicious! Take a walk to the waterfront park and enjoy the views of the bay. An excellent day trip from Victoria. Enjoy!
