A small, takeout, eat in restaurant offering deep fried fish and chips that are as they should be. Batter is light, slightly crunch, chips that snap gently rather than squish. Fast service by phone. A real treasure.

We ordered takeout cod and chips and found the meal to be very good. The cod was cooked in a light batter and was very tasty. One order of chips easily fed the two of us. We will definitely be back.

We used to get take out from here when we visited Victoria, but this time decided to eat in. What a pleasant surprise! The place was packed on both nights and we could see why. The young male servers were friendly and efficient. Had we not known we were in Canada, we could have been in a fish and chip... More

We ordered the Halibut and fries and enjoyed both. The batter on the fish was light and not greasy at all. The fries were handcut and crunchy on the outside but soft and creamy inside. Delicious! The owner and server were friendly and easy to converse with. We will definitely return to try the fried oysters and other good things.

This place is always busy. There is a reason, prices are good and the food is good, and the service is good also.

We have been in BC for just under 2 years and this place is by far the best fish and chips we have seen and tasted since leaving England. Great food great taste and very friendly staff too. A must for all!

Everything in the city is quite expensive but we learned that you do not need to order entrees to sample some delicious creations. Try the House Sushi Roll, it is huge!! The specialty salads were also very good and not too expensive. Bonus: Try the complimentary cheese straws at the bar. Delicious!!
