A nice little place where seafood is well prepared. I ordered salmon sandwich, it was delicious. Even tho it was raining like cats and dogs when I went for a visit, but I was able to stay dry under some over. I've heard this place...More

I absolutely love this place. It is a small unassuming take out place with the best Halibut fish and chips I have ever had. The one piece F&C is more than enough for one, but if you are really hungry or are going to share...More

Yes, you do have to wait a bit, however it is super tasty:) One of the best fish and chips, where you can sit on the porch and enjoy the view. Salmon sandwich and halibut are my favorites :)

We stopped by based on reviews! We got lucky in that there wasn't a long line, we got a table right away and our food in a reasonable amount of time! The staff was very friendly and entertaining! The food was delicious!

Go Fish is situated in a repurposed shipping container. You can sit on their porch and enjoy an amazing view of the water. I ate at Go Fish both times I visited the Granville Island. The people who work there are very relaxed and fun....More

We were sorely disappointed with the +45min wait time for our fish and salad. While we were advised on ordering there would be a 20-30min wait, this is ridiculous! Would not recommend this food vendor unless you have ample time to waste.

I would give this place a pass, as in don't bother. It had gotten a good bit of buzz so we went there. We waited in line at lunchtime for about 20 minutes to order and then another 30+ minutes to get our food. One...More

Well-made fish and crispy chips....yum. I had the cod; my wife had the halibut. Both excellently prepared and well-worth the 30 minute wait. The order taker is a gem. She must be a psychotherapist when not taking orders at Go Fish. She kept the crowd...More

Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out,
Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the
area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls
overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many
visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh

WOW! I am surprised to hear that the service was rated as poor. I have only been three times but I live here and it's absolutely great food. It's basically a take-out wagon and they have a 45-60 minute line-up at peak times... More
