Lots of locals get there fish n chips here

Not posh, and NOT as their web page says :"park like location" But for me even better. There is seating right on the dock. Great people watching, set amongst the fishing boats. This is the real deal, and the fish and chips are good too!

Somehow they consistently serve the best fish and chips in Richmond. The light batter is perfect. The chips are great but way too many for the average appetite. Our favourite.

Heard so much about this place from others. Halibut fried golden brown and nice, light and fluffy. Homemade style tartar sauce that s the perfect complement. The fries were tasty too but be warned, a large is very large and filling! Fried zucchini was unique and tasty but the fish......!

The title says it all... I would suggest if you do try it. Order the halibut not cod. Also when the size goes up from small to large it's mainly the fries you get more of as the fish are super small.

I know a place where I can get the same taste the Pajo's offers, but not for this price! I often upgrade my fries to a poutine and it's so worth it. They have to separate your order into two containers so they tend to give you way more fries. Worth every visit.

this was my favorite spot for lunch, and to take friends to. I loved how you sit on a boat, and the food comes in newspaper.......gives you that real old English feeling, and the food is sooooooooooooooooo good.

It could be difficult for some people to access as it is a long walk down to get the food. . But the food is fabulous

being in steveston and close to the river we thought this would be a good "fish Experience" but very dissapointed ! the halibut was poor quality and not cooked correctly. for the price it should have been better, we will not eat there again !

By far and away the absolute best fish and chips in greater Vancouver! Great outdoor setting and an all natural walking/running path along the west dyke.
