This place is soooo good. By far the best fried fish I’ve ever had. The fries were also great- definitely seem like fresh cut potatoes. The staff were also super friendly and laid back. Will definitely make this a regular place whenever I’m in Vancouver.

This is the coolest outside eatery. You can see the bridges and the water and Granville Island. You eat outdoors but it is great. The curry soup was to die for and the fish was very fresh. A great "funky" place to eat

Excellent fish and chips. Very fresh. Nice batter. Chips are done well. Curry fish soup was Brilliant. Got a seat which were too few in number for how busy they are. Worth the wait but go off peak hours to miss the lines. Recommended.

Supporting local fishermen was never more easy and incredibly paid back than coming to GO FISH for a F&F order and a Taconna of Salmon! And absolute surprise to get this taste at such a petite spot! Superb!!

It’s a small restaurant that have just a few places to sit but it is one of the best fish and chips I have ever had. Maybe as a suggestion I’d say “put less fries and more fish” but overall I had a good time....More

As this was on our way back to our b and b from Granville Island it was a no brainer to stop and try their fish and chips. Yep, the wait can be long and getting a seat is also problematical but it is still...More

Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out,
Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the
area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls
overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many
visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh

WOW! I am surprised to hear that the service was rated as poor. I have only been three times but I live here and it's absolutely great food. It's basically a take-out wagon and they have a 45-60 minute line-up at peak times... More
