This funky little restaurant in Sidney on Vancouver island is really worth visiting. Excellent fish and chips including the best gluten free batter ever! Nice staff as well. Go on Thursdays and you can enjoy the Thursday evening street market afterwards :)

Fish on Fifth is tucked away, half a block off of the main street of Sidney. The menu has just enough variety without being too lengthy. Prices have risen in keeping with the price of seafood. The fish and chips are a favorite, also the fish taco with mango salsa. Opt for the yam fries with special dipping sauce.

The decor is fishy all the way. There is quirky, playful, beautiful in all public spaces. While you wait, practice knot tying with the ropes on each table.

Over the past several years, we enjoyed this restaurant for their salmon and walnut burgers. However, they have managed to destroy even this simple food. Their yam fries were so greasy we could not eat them. And, when we hoped our experience was isolated, we returned to find the same situation. We will not return again.

Good Fish and Chips. Nothing over the top. Location is ok but not really a view of anything but a side street.
