The cozy interior, featuring local artwork, sets the tone for the food and wine. At the centre of this rustic charm is a bountiful oyster bar, Victoria’s only true oyster bar. Nautical Nellies offers a large selection of fresh, local, OceanWise sustainable seafood and well aged, hand cut Certified Angus Beef steaks. The menu is a mix of classic and modern styles with distinct West Coast influences. Start your meal with Jonah Crab Cakes. (Rumoured to be the best in the city!) or the succulent albacore tuna tataki. For lunch choose one of their handcrafted sandwiches featuring Dungeness crab or Atlantic lobster. At dinner, the Hunter Sirloin or a more traditional surf and turf.
The wine list has won several Playhouse International Wine Festival Awards and Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 2008- 2012

Visited because we had a groupon. The service was great and the food tasty. The portions were substantial. We will return!
Made reservations solely based upon gluten free options. Waitservice was excellent and informed. Cocktails and wine were excellent. Dinner was spot on with my filet being perfectly cooked and wife's salmon equally prepared. The only complaint we could come up with is that the potato to seasonal vegatable ratio was skewed heavily toward potatoes. Otherwise, we had an excellent dining experience.
Never been before and was extremely impressed. Food was delicious and service exceptional. Will definitely Mention to friends and have already spoken to my family about having celebratory dinners here!
This was our second time being at this restaurant and the service & food was outstanding. We love the atmosphere and will definitely be coming back.
Celebrated a birthday and wanted a steak. Well, not only was the steak superb but so was the starter - lobster bisque - and the substantial dessert. The staff, especially our server (I am sorry but I forgot her name), was very good - attentive and observant and above all very friendly, with a smile on her face and always a good suggestion when one was needed. We certainly will be back.
Food was great, especially the seafood, price is decent compared to Vancouver. I am only writing this review, which is my first on OpenTable because of how I loved this place! I would see myself come back whenever I'm in Victoria.
We had the seafood platter for 2 and it was delicious
Amazing food. Great service from Terri. Really made it a special birthday.
Love the food and with a Groupon best deal ever
