Everyone told me these were the best fish & chips in Nanaimo. If that's true, the bar is set pretty low. They were okay. The fish was pretty good but the chips were pretty forgettable. If you want really excellent fish & chips on Vancouver...More

We went there as two families on the same evening. One family had good fish and chips but we weren't so fortunate. Our fish was mainly the tail so inedible. I ordered and paid for a veggie burger. They then came to tell me they...More

Park your car in the car park, walk down to the pier near the round-about. Trollers floats at the pier and has tables and chairs, sun and shade, eat-in or tack-out. Menu is typical sea food of cod, halibut, shrimp, scallops etc. and of course...More

The tourist traffic by Trollers will guarantee its success despite a very ordinary uncreative menu and presentation of fish and chips. It is expensive for what you get by 30%. The server was not organized. The meal I had was undersized, the chips were terrible,...More
