“Wonderful little restaurant in the heart of Kerrisdale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We often go to this gem and see their daily menu on the chalkboard located on both walls . Marcus the owner and head chief serves large portions of what ever is fresh . The last time I went I had wonderful clam chowder and for my entrée Artic Char with Greek salad and fries. Let me first discuss fries .These are undoubtedly the worlds finest fries all hand cut and deep fries exactly right each and every time. The chowder is thick with lots of clams and very tasty. I usually have some freshly ground pepper to it but it is certainly not bland . My wife usually has the fresh halibut or fresh cod but there are many others to choose from. If Marcus is working ask him to make you his special curried prawns which aren't on the menu but very good. It is very small so reservations would be recommended especially around dinner time

“Upscale Fish-and-Chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

The menu board makes it easy to order: what's fresh today, three ways to prepare it, which of five sauces do you want, and what goes with your fish. It's all served on newsprint waxed paper in a skillet. Nice touch. The simplicity seems like a fish-and-chips shop, but the outstandingly fresh fish and presentation quickly disabuses the patron of that notion. Share a salad between two will easily make this a healthy meal. With three well-chosen beer selections on tap, you can add some draft to this freshly prepared meal. You'll leave satisfied. Better make reservations; mot of the time, this place is packed.
