Oyster is a raw oyster and seafood bar located in Pescatores restaurant.
Good food...not great but good. Very poor service. Very Very expensive for a tiny bit of food. Myself and my wife's bill 170.00 and we both left hungry and had only 2 watered down drinks and a glass of warm water. I get the whole thing about the amazing chef who's food is so great you only get a taste for hundred dollar bills but doesn't the food have to be worthy of that kind of ego??
The tiny bowls of clam chowder were so salty we could barely eat them.
Now buck a shuck is 3 bucks a shuck.... Sad
Took us 25 min to find our server when we were ready to leave
Too bad this used to be a really good place.
Still looks great with a great location. Guess that's what they're selling now.
We have visited this restaurant twice and each time have been favourably impressed. My wife loves raw oysters, so she loved the "buck a shuck". The varieties of oysters was amazing. I, however, am not a raw oyster fan. The other options on the menu suit me. The steamed mussels were excellent. The broth was almost as good as the mussels themselves. The music is a bit loud but it's a bar!
Last weekend we took friends who were visiting from Vancouver to The Oyster Bar for some late afternoon drinks. The buck a shuck experience was great and the waitress really knew her stuff. The afternoon turned to dinner and we finally rolled out of there about 5 hours and six dishes later. Our friends told us the oyster was the best attraction in Victoria.
