If you enjoy moist fluffy batter where the fish just melts in your mouth then this is the place to go for Fish & Chips! I actually prefer the Cod over the Halibut even though the Halibut is considered to be better ( It is more expensive ) The Halibut is drier and more of a solid steak fish where... More

No indoor seating, which normally would be a no-no for us, but due to its worthy fish and chips, we lined up with about 50 others for our food. Also tried the onion rings. All very good. We would prefer to pay a little more for proper seating and service, along with a beer or two... which Pajo's does not... More

It is unique! No other Fish and Chips can beat Pajo's. A little expensive but worth the money. It opens only in Summer.

We are residents of Steveston and, in our opinion, Pajo's serves up the best! Light batter and always fresh fish. The chips are always fabulous. Don't forget their coleslaw ...

The fish is so small. As a small appetite I can easily eat 4 of them. The fish and chips are very soggy and one of them is uncooked. DISAPPOINTED! But the fish is very fresh, at least this is a good part.

We came here because there was a large line, while we where walking on the waterfront. We place our order for the fish and chips. The fish and chips looked really fresh and crispy. All the condiments were on the side of the building, so you can get as much as you like. The fish was really crispy and perfectly... More

Pajo's has become somewhat of a landmark in the village of Steveston. If you are in the mood for fish and chips, this is the best place to come to. But be prepared for a lineup, it moves fast and they pump out consistently great food. One of our family favourites. Love the dock location.

I am not sure why a lot of people like going here for fish n chips. Had tried this place couple times but I didn't like it the both times. Maybe it was my own personal preference but I didn't like their fries being soft and almost soggy texture. Fish batter is a little too thick and not crispy enough... More
