The Fishbowl has the best Fish and Chips in town! The service i received in the restaurant was excellent. I have also visited the booth they have outside in the Summer though i found the food prep to be very slow. (Waiting 15 minutes or so for food when i am the only one there seems a little long to...

We enjoyed our "fish & chip" dinner, the service and the atmosphere. We were regular customers while leaving in Timmins. We like going back and the food is good.

Was extremely expensive for what I got, it's certainly over rated. Fish was good but mashed potatoes were not made in house which is surprising for a restaurant of high quality which they appear to be.

I especially like sitting in the area where there is a lot natural light at the front. The meals are very good, the drinks too. I did notice they are adding too many things to the menu. That is a common mistake though for a lot of restaurants. For example, they have rotisserie chicken on the menu. I do not... More

I know "fish" is implied, but $18 for a less-than-great burger is just unreasonable. The bun was burnt, and the meat tasted old. If you're going here with a group and don't like fish, be wary.

It's difficult to enjoy eating out when most restaurants offer pre-packaged, high sodium low quality food. We decided to try the fishbowl and we were beyond pleased. The service was cheerful and helpful (specific diet demands can be difficult and annoying to staff but our server Andrea was amazingly knowledgeable and patient). The atmosphere was cozy, the portions were large... More
