A last minute decision to find a nice seafood restaurant turned out to be a gem. Excellant service and even better food. Great environment overlooking the harbour. The waitress was very accomodating with our seat selection.

I had an early dinner at Finz yesterday with my family which was a party of 8. The service was amazing and the food was even better. 5 of the 8 of us had the baked stuffed lobster and it was mouth watering. Not to mention for a party our size, the food was delivered in a very reasonable manner.

This place was awesome. The staff was great and I loved the décor. A nice location on the water make for an excellent view. The establishment is large with plenty of elbow space. The food was excellent. I went with a family of four and everyone enjoyed what they had. I tried the shrimp cocktail, wedge and scallops. All very... More

Being from Western Canada, we wanted to go to the best seafood restaurant in town and a local told us to go to Finz. There was a large selection of fish dishes to choose from and the waitress was very helpful in helping us decide what to order. Our table overlooked the water and it was very romantic.

We had the seafood platter for 2. The mussels were the main fare in the platter. Fresh, creamy and delicious. The oysters - only 2 - were equally good. Fish in batter was good too. The salmon and tuna - shashimi style so-so. Prawns, squid passable. The bread slices were stiff! We had to order some fresh ones. Expensive -... More

This is located on Wharf Street, very close to the water. It is decorated nicely. We found it to be pricey for what you get. The oysters were only about the size of a silver dollar, and you only got 8 of them for $16. This was a lot for these tiny guys. To be honest it was only four... More

Went here on Halloween monday to ensure we had a good lunch before the nighttime parade got underway. Not disappointed. We both had the paella, and it was hearty and well prepared. Other tables ordered it after they saw how much we enjoyed it. Good staff, good choice all round.

The service was great! Our server was very friendly and attentive. Food was really good. Homemade chips for the crab nachos was super! The only negative was a funky smell around the restrooms. Maybe a sewage thing? I know the water is right there, so I try to give places like that a pass. I would def go back!
