Fodor's Expert Review Blue Crab Seafood House

$$$ Downtown Victoria Seafood
Fresh-daily seafood and expansive harbor views make this airy James Bay hotel restaurant a popular lunch and dinner spot. Signature dishes include a crab cake starter, a scallop-and-prawn sauté, cedar plank salmon, and bouillabaisse in coconut green curry, but check the tempting daily specials on the blackboard as well. Desserts made in-house and a wine list highlighting British Columbia and Pacific Northwest labels round out the menu. Service can be a bit over-attentive, perhaps to make up for the long wait for a table if you don't make advance reservations. The lounge area and patio, serving until 11 pm nightly, has equally impressive views and a more casual menu.
