One major drawback to living in Canada’s most beautiful city is that familiar moment of panic when playing host to frequent—and frequently hungry—visitors. When stomachs start grumbling, the pressure’s on you to find that elusive gem: close to downtown, impressive (but not snooty), and most importantly, somewhere that embodies the spirit of local Island culture and cuisine. There’s got to be seafood, but not only seafood. And, of course, the mandatory ocean view. Stressed yet? Luckily, Victoria locals have known for years that right in their midst is a sure thing for impressing company: the Blue Crab Seafood House (in the Coast Victoria Harbourside Hotel & Marina at 146 Kingston St.) Impressing guests suddenly seems like a no-brainer when you’re noshing on.
