“The Best Halibut and Chips!”

Yorky's Halibut and Chips
Ranked #29 of 104 Restaurants in Parksville
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Okay, this is just a little hole in the wall place, just a few booths and mostly a take out restaurant, but they make the BEST halibut and chips on Vancouver Island. Huge, tender pieces of halibut in a light crispy batter and hand cut Kennebec fries. Great homemade coleslaw and tartar sauce, ample servings. The service is prompt and simple, the place is plain but spotless, the food is great.
There are other things on the menu like popcorn shrimp and cod, but I'm a sucker for halibut - and nobody does halibut like these folks do.
Funny thing, any time I've been there a conversation was struck up amongst the other diners at different tables. It was like being a guest in someone's kitchen where a bunch of friends had been invited!

We picked this place because one of our party particularly wanted halibut but when I got there they had run out of halibut. Still, the haddock and cod we had instead were excellent, moist, flaky fish and light, crispy batter with good English-style chips. Service was good considering that the restaurant was full and there was a queue for takeaway. Excellent for anybody wanting good English style fish and chips, and lots of locals seemed to like them.

We weren't expecting a lot when we stopped in a place we'd never heard of while passing through Parksville, but the food here was excellent. We (two of us) shared a Captain's Plate of haddock, cod, and halibut, and there was more than enough for us. The fish was fresh, tasty, and had a perfect fluffy crispy batter. The chips were clearly made from fresh potato and were crisp on the outside, buttery on the inside - couldn't have been better. Even the coleslaw was fresh and tasty. We live in Vancouver and can never find a place in the city that has fish and chips this good - if we lived in Parksville, we'd eat here all the time!

I particularly enjoy fish that is deep fried with a light or "tempura" batter and Yorky's serve fish and chips second to none. The halibut is moist and tasty, the cod is real Pacific cod and both are served fresh, cooked to order. They serve a wide variety of other seafood combinations but I seldom stray from halibut and cod. Coleslaw and tartar sauce accompany the fish and chips.
The service is great ! No liquor is served on the premises.
