Mermaid Wharf

Indo-French influenced sustainable local seafood.

Like a three-year spawning cycle, Chef Kunal Ghose has returned to the waterway that he got his start in … Victoria, BC.

Three years after fishhook, the team behind the original concept is now in the harbour at Mermaid Wharf (407 Swift).

It’s fishhook alright! It’s FH with a waterfront patio, char-grill, ‘thalis’ or share platters, cocktails, BC wines and six local taps — not to mention the ability to take reservations — even for large parties!

We’re open for lunch and dinner 11 AM ’til late, Wednesday through Sunday.
