Fish & Chips were made known in th UK (where I grew up) XXX years ago- in those days they actually served them in newspaper, which kept them warm and absorbed surplus oil. Later it was in unprinted newspaper for same effect without the ink. In N.A. 'chips' are actually French Fries. This place knows how to bring it on... More

We found Capitaine Pouf to be a joy to our taste buds. Never had we enjoyed fish and chips that were as tasty as these. The fish although fried could be tasted more than the oil they were cooked in. We were offered choices for the size of our order as in 2-4-6 pieces, which was great! No need for... More

Went to this very popular spot with locals who knew enough to arrive early for seating. We were lucky enough to get a table outside on a beautiful day. Not much to say except that the fish and chips were delicious. I was not so fond of the coleslaw but our friends asked for seconds which they received free of... More

Capitaine Pouf was recommended by several friends and recently while in the area we decided to try it out. Arriving at 5:30 pm on a Saturday night, the two of us were seated right away, but only moments later, there was a lineup out into the parking lot, as our friends had warned us. Those waited were seated quickly but... More

I went here on one of my hikes of the town and I thought I would try and practice my French. My server would not even help me order in French she made me... More
