Admittedly we all have preferences and therefore restaurant reviews are necessarily subjective. Having now eaten fish'n'chips at more than a dozen restaurants in White Rock, our favourite - by far - is Coney Island, and my 5-star rating relates only to the fish'n'chips here as we have tried nothing else.

We both love cod and so don't order the more expensive alternatives for fish'n'chips. The fish here is always perfect and the batter suits our tastes: not too heavy, crisp on the outside and light and moist (but not gooey!) inside. Likewise, the French fries are great: thick-cut and with peel still on and perfectly cooked to a golden brown (unlike a very popular establishment just a couple doors away that overcooks their fries so they are dark and limp and taste slightly burnt). Service has always been prompt. They don't seem to have air conditioning, and on hot days this restaurant is just too warm inside. Outside seating is limited to a couple small bistro tables.

We have had fish'n'chips here several times now and the food and service have been consistently excellent.

Over the years we've tried every fish and chip shop on east and west beach. Unlike all these other shops, Coney Island sells consistently good food. They serve up large portions and the home made tartar sauce is the best. Even on super busy days the staff are cheerful and grateful for your business. This place never disappoints!

One of the best fish and chip places I have ever had. I used to go to a few of the others in whiterock until I found this gem. Their halibut is very tasty, and huge portion.

the batter was too crisp and the fish too thin. i really couldn't tell what type of fish it was. The atmosphere was nice, though- sort of 50's tacky (but in a nice way) nets from the ceiling, pictures of various maritime themed things hanging off the walls. The fries were okay but very flavorless- no sense that I was eating anything but cardboard. The cost to value ratio- not so good. Would I go there again, maybe, in a couple of years.
The waitress was very nice and friendly though
