I went to Pajos on my first visit to Steveston this summer. I had read a number of reviews for fish and chips online and my research suggested that Pajos was definitely the best for Halibut and that it had a scenic location. I can confirm that both of these things are accurate! We sampled the halibut and chips as... More

Start with a walk around historic Steveston, enjoy the shops and beautiful riverscape, the harbour and all of the fish boats selling fresh fish and seafood off of the dock. Then when the tummy starts to rumble walk over to the west end of the board-walk down the gangplank and order some of the best fish& chips you will ever... More

Took my brother and his family to experience fish and chips in Steveston. The staff at Pajo's were friendly, and also patient while the kids figured out their orders. My brother and I, each had the 2 piece halibut and chips and it was greasy goodness as usual. The kids meals on the other hand were subpar - $8 grilled... More

We decided to meet and chat at Pajo's for their great fish and chips! Order was taken and we were diving into our food soon after! Excellent service and tasty food made for a great get together!

Halibut and Chips on the beach. Watching the sunset. Is there a better way to watch the sunset? I don't think so...... This is fun food and a great location.

Grab a little green plastic side table that are... More

We brought our friends down to Steveston Landing 'cuz we wanted to introduce them to Pajo's at the Wharf for dinner. Pajo's is still offering all you can eat fries but it seems as if the size of the fish is shrinking. We expected standing room only given it was the 3rd week of August but to our surprise there...

Price is very reasonable. Fish is very nicely done, not greasy. You can sit on the tables or wander down to the logs on the river. Best to go during the week. Very very busy on the weekends

It's nice to step back in time once in a while when eating. Outside also helps. Pajo,s specializes in fish and chips-and they do it well. Halibut F&C served in a paper cone with lemon and tartar sauce eaten outside is a real pleasure. Especially when they are so good. A crunchy outside batter with great fish inside. Tough to... More

We used to love coming to Steveston to enjoy Pajo's by the water. But the last 3 or 4 times I've being both the cod and the halibut have been very greasy. I think this will be my last visit

We finally got it after 30 minutes lining up. The chips were terrible dry. While the fish was big and delicious. There are many options, but we would not come back.
