Tasty juicy and flaky fish and chips, one of the best french fries in Vancouver. We tried few other places, hardly any close to be as good as this one. We had cod, I am not sure about halibut or other fish. Excellent, accommodating and...friendly service, these folks work! Many thanks! The value average or even below.More

We stumbled on this fish restaurant in Fisherman’s Wharf, near Granville Island. Best fish and chips I’ve had. The staff were having a great time cooking to The Ramones. Great vibe, friendly staff and excellent food. Totally recommend it!

The fish was juicy and firm, the batter crispy not greasy or soggy, the fries fresh and crispy, the tatar sauce tangy and creamy, and the coleslaw was crisp and tangy. It was all so good. It’s just a 2 minute walk from the entrance...of Granville Island, it worth the extra steps to have the fish and chips here than at Granville Island.More

Yes it took awhile to cook, worth the wait. Fresh, cooked perfectly loved it. The price is more than reasonable. We compared the 5* restaurant's fish from the previous evening's dinner and Go Fish made the 5* fish taste like chum. Next time in Vancouver...we will be back!More

Lined up 15 minutes prior to opening time on a Saturday. Weather was gorgeous so waiting around was not terrible. However, the 1.5 hour wait to actually get our meal was a bit much. Once the meal was ready, it was, indeed extremely tasty! The...fish was beyond fresh. We (hubby and wife duo) split a 2 piece cod fish and chip order. Fish pieces were of good size and very tasty (worthy of 5 stars). Hubby was not as fond of the chips as I was, but we did both give them a thumbs up for sure. If at Granville Island and in the mood for no frills old school fish and chips, this is a very good bet!More

You know I have never written a review in my life but the fish we just received was so tiny I had to! I specifically asked the guy when I ordered how big the pieces are and he showed me with his hands and said...they were a good size. If they were small I was going to order two pieces because I was sharing with my 6 year old. When I received the order I said are you kidding me, this is tiny, and said I’ll have that piece, he was dishing up for another customer, while telling me they weigh each piece he was also hiding that piece he was preparing for another client, obviously knowing it was bigger, you couldn’t hide it. Yes their fish and chips are good, the best in Vancouver and I come from the UK where fish and chips are hard to beat and from a family whom owned fish and chips shops so I know good ones. But come on! the size of the portions are a joke, sorry but had to share.More

The food was so fresh. Watch fish get delivered! Service was a bit on the slow side but was ready faster then they said it would be. Would have been a 5 if service had been 15 minutes rather than 30 minutes.

We arrived at Go Fish about 30 minutes before closing intending to buy a couple of meals of fish and chips. I went to the service counter and asked about ordering as they were open until 7 pm. The fellow behind the counter asked where...I had heard that closing time. I said on their voice mail message, and on the sign outside their place. The response was something like ... "Hey cowboy if you want to get food you have to order by 6 pm at the latest". The gist of the story was that they were sold out. That message could have been relayed politely and with respect. And if the restaurant is routinely sold out of food one hour before closing, then either increase the inventory or have an earlier closing time.More

The restaurant is very busy. Has a simple menu of a few different seafood items. Scenic location was nice. We experienced a 40 min wait which they did let us know when we ordered our food. The food was hot and fresh, not disappointing at...all.More

We hadn't visited GF for quite sometime. We took some friends and had lunch. Surprisingly the line was short. The order took only 20 minutes. The food was good. The company was great. My wife had her standard Fish and Chips and I had the...Tuna Sandwich which was a bit light on the Tuna. But it was a tasty sandwich with the Ponzu and veggies. Our friends had the Fish and Chips.

They out and out lied that food would be ready in 25-30 minutes. It was an hour and a half. If they had a number system you could at least get a sense of where your order was in the queue. Hey, Go Fish, figure...out a system instead of being rude and snide to the customers. Show some respect. No quality of food justifies such bad service.More

Average fish and chips but excellent tartar sauce. Not a fan of the cole slaw which was a asian vinegary base. Choices of cod and halibut.

It was busy when we showed up here around 3. We waited in line until queue was getting shorter, and it was worth visiting Go Fish. There were families, couples and others waiting for their orders to be ready. Even though we waited around 20...minutes, our food came out fresh. Customers can't eat around this area so you must go elsewhere to find tables/chairs. We had to walk further to find a spot instead. We ordered 2 pcs Halibut and Chips it was a great decision! Fries were SO crispy and Halibut fillet were soft. Never had fries this GOOD (I swear) ! Fish fillet were so meaty, YUM! Coleslaw tasted rather vinegary it was not bad. I expected the usual creamy coleslaw when their coleslaw was more vinegary. Anyways, their beer battered Fish and Chips were excellent. Go Fish deserves two thumbs up!More

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
