    Tuna tacones are amazing and much more interesting than salmon. Share two and a two-piece cod & chips with a friend for the perfect Go Fish meal!

    Ordering a 2-piece fish and chips and sharing with a friend is cheaper than two separate orders. Plenty of fries for two people.

    Halibut is for suckers. Cod is just as delicious and much cheaper. Best fish and chips in the Lower Mainland!

    The salmon fish and chips exceeded the expectations, they bring the fish from their local fishers, supporting their local community

    Don't go when they're super busy unless you want to wait for 1.5 hours. The quality was terrible especially for the high price. The fries were burnt and the halibut wasn't seasoned.

    The oyster po' boy here, albeit unconventional since the beasts are not fried, but grilled, might be one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten.

    The best fish tacos (tacones) in the world!

    There will be a line - get in it. Worth it. I hated fish. I've been converted.

    Best fish and chips hands down

    Pro tip: If you order one of the sandwiches, eat it over your slaw. The drippings make it taste even better.

    There are 5 parking spots right in front of the restaurant reserved exclusively for Go Fish patrons.

    The food is fresh and you can taste then difference. Tacones are awesome, a little messy but worth it. Order two of them as it will be cheaper as you will want to go back for more right away! H

    Halibut and chips are the best in town here.

    Seafood does not get much better than this. Freshly caught the morning of serving, enjoy spectacular views of Granville Island and the city at this famous open air shack.

    The salmon tacos are unreal (not to mention fresh off the boat). Best lunch in Vancouver and perfect on a sunny day. Pro-tip, call ahead to order to avoid the typical hour wait.

    Halibut & Chips....As good as Moby's in White Rock.

    When they have it, the scallop sandwich is to die for!

    Luis Giraldo · June 10, 2012
  • Shelley C.

    Always freshly made, it gets insanely busy but worth the wait. Call ahead to have your order ready for pick up if you know you're dropping by.

    1 piece to share is a snack. 1 piece each is a meal.

    The fluke is the duke of sole.

    Hands down best lunch- try the salmon tacos. Call ahead (this will save you an hour wait!).

    Have a soup to start. They are always surprisingly awesome!

    The tacones are always fresh and tasty, no matter which one you get. Salmon and tuna are my staples.... Oh and a side of fries! The best ones in town!

    I'd rather go to this fish shack (it's literally a trailer by the public fish dock) than any fancy restaurant in town. Everything is fresh and tastes great!

    Doug Burgoyne · March 9, 2010
  • Matthew M.

    Halibut and chips were awesome. Better (just marginally) than Pajo's, which is an achievement.

    Matthew Montano · February 21, 2010
