Maybe it was the cold and rainy weather, maybe it was because we weren't all that hungry. The food is good, don't get me wrong. The fries are hot but not crispy, the fish pieces (especially the salmon and the halibut) were generous, but I wasn't blown away or ready to go back anytime soon. Will I eat here again?... More

Fish and fries are done perfectly. And not too expensive for fish and chips. In a restaurant you would pay 17 bucks and i believe it was 14 for a 2 piece here.

We have been going to Pajo's for years. Love the consistency of the quality. Very generous pieces of halibut and thick cut fries. Never has that "cooked in old oil" taste of some fish and chip shops. Two locations in Steveston, but prepare for an "outdoor" eating experience as the Wharf location has limited seating and even less that is... More

We stopped at Pajo's for lunch. Very lucky with weather, sun came out as we sat down, otherwise not very good on a rainy day as they have no roof on eating area. Chose Cod and Chips. Ample portion, done traditional way. No precision cut, frozen fish. We will dine here again.

Always heard it was a popular place to go to. Went with my mom during a windy day. I guess it's always windy at Garry point park. Walk up to the stand, order, and they give you this neat tray with holes where they stick the fish and chips in cones for you to take to the picnic tables nearby.... More

I'd been told the fish and chips here were very good. Having been brought up on the east coast of northern England fish and chips was one of the staple foods. A treat was to go to the WORLD RENOUNED Harry Ramsdens. At Pajo's I chose the two-piece halibut and chips, paying in advance the price including tax was around... More

Price is average for the area. Pat and Joan created a great place for an authentic experience. Fries in newspaper cones. Several kinds of vinegar. The best place to eat outdoors on the docks. Views of the working ships. Expect to spend $10-$15.

Stopped here for dinner for it was outside on a beautiful evening on the wharf, plus received good reviews and was busy. My husband and I both ordered the Halibut fish and chips. I ordered child size. The fish was very small portions which was upsetting because it was tasty but expensive. You get unlimited drinks and chips with price.... More
