Food was excellent, fair price, the seating is outside so the weather will have a big impact on your experience.

If you want to have one of the best Halibut fish and chips in a very casual way, this is the place. Just plan for a sunny day. Po boys are delicious (oyster sandwiches), and salmon is really good. It is not a restaurant it...More

Cheap, outdoors, close to the water, fantastic spicy fish! Nice bicycle ride to go there. A must for the Vancouver visitor!

The place is in an outdoor setting, most people grab and quickly eat. I wonder what happens when it rains there? We luckily went on a very sunny day and had no issues. I wouldn't really call this a "restaurant", more like an eatery, it's...More

No wonder you have to queue as this place is no secret. Very light batter and crispy chips make for a very tasty meal. The halibut is far better than the farmed fish we get in the UK.

What everyone else says is true, this is the best fish and chips in the world! We ate twice there on our visit to Vancouver, the most delicious melting halibut in crispy light batter with fries, coleslaw and the best tartare sauce I have ever...More

OK, this place is a little hard to find and you sit outside to eat (around a cozy little harbor), but the fish and chips are excellent. We were sent here by relatives and my Brother-in-Law was right on. Great place on a sunny day.

This beloved food trailer features the most delicious fish and chips - salmon, halibut, and more - as well as fish tacos that are beautifully seasoned and tasty. Go Fish is in a wonderful spot by the harbor - while you're near, visit the Museum...More

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
