Good fish and chips but could improve

This place has one of the better fish and chips in greater Vancouver. The only problem is that they could use better service attitudes. Not just that, the portions are average. So be prepared to spend a bit more than your average fish and chips shop to be full.

This place is a hidden gem in Richmond. On the most western wharf in steveston you must go down a very steep ramp when the tide is out but it's worth it! It's self serve and the fish and chips are wonderful. Lots of it too!

The quality of the fish served is comparable to other good fish and chips places. But most other places do not offer you a sampler of three different type of fish, nor they serve a very good fish taco with lots of grilled fish, nor they make a very good chowder, nor you get to enjoy your meal sitting at...

Pajo's is the place to go when I have a fish and chips craving. It has nifty trays to carry your cones filled with yummy battered cod, halibut and salmon. The chips are large and taste like the potatoes are suppose to and not like other french fries from other places.

Great place to come to on a sunny summers day for fish and chips. Service is quick and friendly and there are tables either down on the dock where you order and also tables up top on the wharf. All tables have holes cut out that you fit the paper cone filled with yummy fish and chips. They also have... More

We visited Stevenson while Vacationing in Vancouver. I'm so glad we did. And no visit to this town is complete wIthout fish n chips in Pajos. A little in the expensive side for what we got. But lovely. And fast service too. Fish and chips served in paper cone, which fits into slots in tables... How cute is that!

fish tacos were awesome, french fries small and greasy - felt like all I got were the crumbs, need to have a large condiment area to accommodate busy crowds.

Pajos is a long time fixture of Steveston and Rocky Point. I am a resident of Steveston and have been getting our family fish and chips from their 2 local outlets for years. The owner treats her employees like family and you can tell they love their jobs. I've heard some people say the fish is pricey, however it is... More

As a Brit I thought Fish and Chips with Mushy peas might be just great. Well the Halibut was amazing. Freshest fish and a great batter. The chips were not so good and the mushy peas were served cold. After a request to heat them they were eventually returned as water. The fine art of heating mushy peas wasn't apparent... More
