We enjoyed a light lunch while watching the sea planes and whale watching boats come and go in Victoria harbour. Bustling bar service. Good selection of food. We enjoyed a gluten free burger, and a Caesar salad with roast chicken. Washed down with 50cl carafe...More

Bustling restaurant by the seaplane dock. we had a short wait for a table but it was worth it for the fish and chips and a pint of Dark Matter (IPA ale). No frills but worth a visit.

Even in cooler weather, you can enjoy the view of the inner harbour and float plane base from a wind-protected and heated outdoor patio. We recommend the mango salad with prawns, which is amazing beet strings, cashews, feta cheese and mango dressing on greens -...More

We spent one night in Victoria and accidently found the Flying Otter. The seafood choices were amazing! Plus, we were able to watch the water airplanes as they boarded passengers and departed from the pier.

I ordered the crab cakes (which I’ve had better), and my husband liked his sweet Thai chili chicken wings. The poutine was delicious, and apparently, the best was saved for last...because that deep fried cheesecake was amazing! And great views of the seaplanes too!

I was directed here by a local and was not disappointed. With all the fish places in Victoria, I doubt these are the best fish & chips available; however, I also doubt there's much room for improvement. Perfectly cooked, flaky with a well matched batter,...More

I don't know. But, it looks like you could have your dog out on the patio with you, as there is seating out there. Worth an inquiry for sure. Good luck!
