First thing is first, Sharky's has the best batter of any fish and chip place I've every tasted. It is a sour dough batter, so the first thing one sees is that it sticks to the fish, not so much air between the batter and the fish. They are mainly take out, with only a handful of seats inside, but we managed to push two together for 4 adults and two kids. Ordered the family pack of 4 halibut, chips, coleslaw, tartar sauce and individual dishes for the kids. Everything was outstanding, the fish was perfectly cooked, the chips are cut big, but cooked so that the outside is crispy, inside nice and soft. Tartar sauce is made in house and has a nice bite without having too much mayo consistency. Easily the best in Victoria, and off the beaten path away from the hordes of tourists.
A small place, has just a few tables for eat in dining. Friendly service by the owner, I enjoy eating in. Clean premises. Great hand punched thick cut fries. I find thick cut fries can be undercooked but these are cooked to perfection, excellent taste. The portions are generous, the batter on the fish tender, tasty, and crispy. The best fish & chips in Victoria for my money.
Very friendly service by the owner, thick cut "hand punched" fries, cooked well. I'm leery of large fires because they can be cooked unevenly. These are crispy on the outside and cooked through. The fish is excellent with a a batter that is tasty and not not thick, and not greasy. Good value. I usually eat in, just a few tables, clean premises. The best fish & chips in Victoria for my money.
