Such fun

This is a "locals" place. Very informal, outdoor seating if you can find any. People were there for the music. At one point people were dancing in the parking lot. Our waitress did not speak English and could not understand our questions but she found someone who could. The fish was great a nice... read more

A friend and I recently enjoyed lunch at Capitaine Pouf in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. While his fish and chips were quite good, my pan fried cod was among the best I've ever had. For dessert, the Queen Elizabeth cake was good, but the star was my friend's chocolate melt cake. Decadent doesn't begin to describe it--rich with different chocolates but not with... More

An informal, friendly place that was very busy on a warm Sunday evening. Our group of 5 were quickly seated. Four went for the recommended fish and chips, and the youngest had the grilled cheese which he devoured. The fish and chips were as previous reviewers described: crispy batter, flaky flesh, and piping hot. Staff were very friendly, encouraging our... More

This place was hopping when we arrived (by bicycle) and there were bicycles everywhere as a large cycling group had already arrived. There was a sign at the front door directing customers to the patio door which we went to (we thought) but there was no sign saying 'come in', 'seat yourself' or 'wait to be seated', in fact it...

For the price, it is a "no brainer", consistently very good and not "over battered" fresh fish with great fresh cut fries. Made to order food that is the secret to their success. Service is efficient and friendly. Be prepared to wait on busy evenings such as Friday and Saturday. They are open for lunch and certainly easy to get... More

Quaint little restaurant that specializes in fresh fish (haddock/perch etc.) fried to a crispy delicious taste, served with fries that are also delicious! If you like fried fish then this is the place to eat. Clean establishment with a dedicated staff to ensure you enjoy your meal. I would readily recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves to eat fish!!

We took the fish and chips. It was HUGE and cheap (3 pieces for 10$), I could not finish my plate and I have a good appetite... The place was jammed packed and it was a saturday night. Ambiance could have been better but it was good enough. Feels more like a fast food though, if you want to relax... More
