This is just a tourist trap - used to be so good. In future - for the money - I would go to a real restaurant .

Really enjoyed their fish and chips. So much so that we ate their twice. Well done to Canada for doing the British national dish better than us

the food was very good and quick, there was a lack of seating - but all the restaurants were busy- watching the sea lions was a treat

I know they are supposed to be the best fish and chips in town but I don't get it. Been there a few times ... Some when its super busy and some when its not ... It's average at best. We take our kids to fisherman a wharf to feed the seals and sometimes grab an order of fish & chips because its there and convenient. But to be honest I'm pretty disappointed every time.

Too much hype left us a little disappointed. The fish and chips are fine, but not great. There is outdoor seating (under a canvas) beside this floating eatery. it was fun to see the adjacent floating village of houseboats, but don't expect too much.
