Go Fish

Seafood in Yaletown & Granville Island

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 the changing daily specials – brought in by the nearby fishing boats – often include scallop burgers or ahi tuna sandwiches.

Expect long queues and sometimes oppressive waits in summer; arrive as off-peak as you can. The seating area has been expanded from its original limited selection but it's still best to continue along the seawall to Vanier Park for a sunset picnic alongside the ever-watchful seagulls.
