This place is easy to miss when you are on Granville Island, but if you miss this little outdoor cafe, you have missed the best eatery in the whole city! I first discovered this place in 2011, and 4 years later it is still going...More

Go Fish is closes on Monday, so eat elsewhere that day. We went on Tuesday right at 11:30 when it opens, there were less than 10 parking spots and with the usual long line up and wait for the food, you want to go early....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

overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many
visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh
