Great food, fresh fish and fantastic flavours. If you like curry then this is the place to eat. I would highly recommend the Koftas. Lots of Gluten free options.

Fishhook was the best meal we had during our two-week trip to Seattle, Vancouver, Whistler, and Victoria, B.C. The words “fresh and flavorful” are accurate but completely inadequate. We had the Daily Khatch and the Vin’daloo. Each mouthful was so achingly good that we asked...More

Stopped in for a quick mid-day bite and drink before water-taxi over to tourist laden downtown in it was a treat! The seafood poutine was very interesting, in a good way, and perfect with the Beach Life Belini and White Bark Beer. And outside patio...More

One of my children has severe food allergies, including nuts. We were able to enjoy a delightful meal at Fishhook. Staff is super friendly and approachable. Kitchen is open so you can just ask the chef himself. Good luck!
