Heard about many good restaurants in St-Jean but were late for lunch so decided to have a bite at this Fish & Chip place that I had looked up on the internet. Very good comments by the two weightwatchers about the grilled fish, salad and fruit plate while I enjoyed the true F&C. Cod was the fish for both.

We stumbled across this restaurant and were very glad we did. The food was homemade, the service friendly and fast. We found a seat that we could see the river from, it was just a quaint little place to go. The fish and chips were delicious and the portions were generous. The Ceasar salad was excellent.

The fish & chips are excellent at this restaurant, I've had it twice and great both times. The last occasion at this restaurant I had the Rib Steak.WOW!. JUST LIKE THE RIB STEAKS OF OLD AT THE LOCAL TAVERNS AND BRASSERIES, I'll be back for sure for either one. Ed P.

If you like fish Capitaine Pouf is 'the' place to visit and this restaurant well deserves the detour. The food is always fresh and the portions are generous. This might not be your definition of "fine cuisine" but I challenge you to find a place in the area that serves fish as good as they do. A nice place to... More

After reading reviews on restaurants in the area we opted to try the fish and chips of this restaurant. The restaurant is nice and the service good, but I was disappointed because the fish and chips was limp instead of crisp. I honestly expected something better.

We went for lunch at an off peak period (thanks to reading Trip Advisor reviews). Even so there was a bit of a crowd. Service was good. My wife ordered the regular portion @ $12 of 2 fish rolls with fries that was ample. I ordered the large portion of 4 @ $14, which wound up to be more than... More

Greasy and soggy fish and chips. If you are an Anglo Do Not Go Here you are not welcome. I watched how the French an the English where treated and it was night and day. The food was very average for the price and quite greasy.

Verry popular place, especially when the weather is hot, nice terrace & atmosphere; efficient service and good value for food / $. The only shadow was that the french fries had not been adequately pealed...several eyes,(black spot and pelure ).The ceaser salad is excellent...A place to visit for a Fish & Chips

A friend and I recently enjoyed lunch at Capitaine Pouf in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. While his fish and chips were quite good, my pan fried cod was among the best I've ever had. For dessert, the Queen Elizabeth cake was good, but the star was my friend's chocolate melt cake. Decadent doesn't begin to describe it--rich with different chocolates but not with... More
