    vancouver sun food critic, mia stainsby, recently lauded ULLA as best restaurant in vic. very high praise coming especially from MS:

    my musts in vic:

    RED FISH BLUE FISH - a repurposed container sitting on a dock at the foot of broughton street in the inner harbour serving sustainable fish in tacos & fish n chips form. go for the tacones and if the weather permits, their seafood chowder. both outstanding. beware, lines are long during prime meal times. http://www.redfish-bluefish.com/

    not seafood, but not to be missed: EPI FOL - the. best. macarons. of. my. life. not sickeningly sweet like most traditional macarons and not radiating in fluorescent food colouring. all organic, small batch bread & pastries in vic west - a nice walk from downtown across the johnson street bridge. http://folepi.ca/breads.php

    have a wonderful time in victoria, jim!

      Not very fishy (just octopus app and halibut entree) but I'd sure like to try Ulla... http://www.ulla.ca/food/

        Lure's been recommended here recently. I haven't dined there myself so I can't vouch for it.

        If you browse around here for few minutes you'll probably find a few more recommendations.
