Lonely Planet review

A short stroll westwards along the seawall from the Granville Island entrance, this almost-too-popular seafood stand is one the city's fave fish-and-chip joints, offering halibut, salmon and cod encased in crispy golden batter. The smashing (and lighter) fish tacos are also recommended, while ever-changing daily specials – brought in by the nearby fishing boats – often include scallop burgers or ahi tuna sandwiches.

Expect long queues in summer and arrive as early as you can. There's not much of a seating area, so pack your grub and continue along the seawall to Vanier Park for a picnic with the ever-watchful seagulls.
