We specifically visited this place based on the wonderful trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Beautiful chips and blue cod, crispy light batter. No greasy belly after this meal! I would highly recommend visiting the Westshore fish cafe if you have a hankering for delicious fish & chips!

My wife and I found this gem thanks to trip adviser and it didn't disappoint. Our fish, fries and hot dog were all beautiful and not greasy at all. We highly recommend this fish and chip store.
