“The best fish (halibut) & chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

The best fish (halibut) & chips. The restuarant is nothing fancy but you pay top dollar for this very delicious fresh food. Family run business. About a 5-10 minute drive from downtown Victoria...worth it...trust me! It is located on the street with the same name...Haultain...

“Simply the best fish & chips - with heart!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

We walked from Abigail's late in the afternoon based on a recommendation from the publican at one of the tap houses downtown. We got there ten minutes after closing but the beautiful staff kept the doors open for us. Far from being resentful, they proceeded to engage us in wonderful conversation & the meal was AMAZING! The fish was so fresh & the batter light & crisp & delightful. They gave us extra pieces of fish to go & refused the generous tip I felt they deserved. Not only some of the best fish & chips we have ever had, but a wonderful human experience. Two thumbs up from these Aussies! :-)

“Perfect Old School Fishand Chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

It is so good, I always order 2 pieces of halibut and chips. I am very full after one piece...very generous halibut portions. I manage some of the second piece. Just do what they are supposed to do and do it well. The fish is never fishy, never overcooked. Now that I have said that, I am keeping my fingers crossed, but after so many good meals over the years, they are allowed one future screw up. But I really don't expect it.

“Great fish and chips and a fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

We stopped by for lunch and it turned out to be one of the most enjoyable places we ate on our trip to the Pacific Northwest! The open kitchen is located along the side of the restaurant and the cook was fun to joke around with. We both had halibut and chips and cole slaw. The fish was hand battered in a tasty, light breading. Would eat here again in a minute if we are ever here again! The prices were very fair considering the city. Friendly staff and a nice place to eat "with the locals"

“Good Fish and Chips, super nice staff!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014 via mobile

Not sure I am running back to Victoria for theses fish and chips but they were good. Fish was better than the chips. Tartar sauce needs some work. Small place and very homey atmosphere. However the staff was super Bryce and when they found it we were from SC she chatted it up with us and wanted us to sign the guest book. Really friendly people.
