Greatest fish & chips...ever!

Yes, it is true!
Apparently it just won an award from Travelocity as one of the best "hidden treasures" to eat at in Canada.
On a sunny day there is nothing better than eating halibut & chips at this place. The tartar sauce is good and we love the coleslaw. Everything tastes fresh and you can see them making it!
I could probably eat here once a week in the summer...wish they had a restaurant as this far exceeds all the others on the pier!

Fresh Fish

I agreed with other reviewers that the fish is fresh and quite moisture (I had the halibut). However, the quality of the batter could be more consistent. One of our fish's batter was well made, but another one still had uncooked batter inside. The fries were a bit cold and soggy (Again, I'm sure they do make quality fries, but maybe they're not as consistent as they can be.)

The service was relatively quick.

As for the ambiance, I think that depends on the weather b/c you sit outside

Solid All Around

We went there on Mother's Day and it was packed. The lineup was almost up to the plank so it took a while before we could order. The cashier was friendly and we got our food pretty fast.

The prices were on the high side, one and a half piece of cod plus fries was about $8. With just the fish it was a little over $5 so adding fries was ~$2.50. We also had the chowder which was ~$5.

The fish was alright...wasn't as crisp as I would have liked but it tasted good. The chowder had nice chucks of stuff in it but it needed more salt.

Liked It Long Time

I've tried almost all the fish and chip places in Steveston and would have to say Pajo's ranks well with me. I think the ambiance and quality of food fits well within Steveston. Although their prices are a tad bit pricy, you absolutely get what you pay for. For all the people that are complaining about price, go to Safeway, buy Captain Highliner's frozen fish and chips and have a blast.

We love Pajos

My SO and I bike here almost every other weekend to have their AMAZING french fries. Fresh cut and made to order. They are crazy busy, always, even in the winter.

Having grown up in a small Vancouver Island Fishing Village eating fish every day in the summers, I am extremely critical about fish and it's freshness. I have absolutely no complaints. We usually get a large cone of Salmon with fries and share it between the two of us. It's our happy place and I highly recommend it, so long as you aren't in front of me in the line ;)

The only thing is.. it's really slow. Maybe not enough fryers, too many staff, too many orders, but you can expect to wait 15 mins minimum as they make their fish to order, or even up to an hour if it's super busy from the point you put your order in. Get an ice cream to tide you over if you are desperate.

good fish n chips
By luvmagrub of poco (9 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, October 30, 2008 - 3:19pm [Dine in]

Was here in Sept and decided to try out the fish to see how it compared to the restaurants on the wharf.

Service was efficient and they did their best to keep the seating area clean, however it was constantly busy.

Felt the batter was nice and crisp and not greasy, and although the quality was better (in our opinion) then the restaurants, my other half was missing beer. As he said, on a nice summer day, he likes a good cold beer with his fish n chips.

Would definitely return.
