The food is good and the staff is friendly. Makes for a nice place to eat. A favorite of mine is the salmon and chips.

I have lived just outside of Sidney BC for 2 years and have always wanted to eat at Fish on Fifth. Fact is every time I have tried to get here there has been a line up. Now you would normally take this as a pretty good sign. Right? Well today I got my chance. Weather here today reminded me... More

We got take out fish and chips and were very disappointed with them. The fish portions were quite small and the batter was very dark (overcooked!) and hard! The chips were also disappointing - all of them were really short (?) and also overcooked and hard. The fish and chips were SO greasy that the paper they were wrapped in... More

The wife and I took a day trip to Sidney during our week long stay on the island. Craving some fish and chips we ordered the two piece halibut. Absolutely amazing the fish was juicy and smooth while the batter was light and tempura like.

We eat here all the time. We usually order Halibut and chips. It's delicious. My husband usually orders one deep fried and one grilled. Either way its delicous. We have also tried the wraps, Prawns and Cod and it's all delicious. They also have the best coleslaw. I would recommend this to anyone for a delicious meal.

This is my all time favorite family owned and operated fish and chip restaurant on Vancouver Island. The fish and chips are perfectly done every time and they will make them the way you want it with Gluten free options, fried or grilled. The wraps and burgers are fantastic and OMG those deep fried Mars bars are to die for!... More

Changed our lunch plans to here as highly recommended by a local Brit. Glad we did. Staff were friendly and helpful.My one piece haddock dinner was good and more than enough with fries,coleslaw,and homemade tartar.Did manage though to have ginger carrot soup also which was delicious. Simple decor but funky friendly atmosphere. Sonye

Having had a great dinner here several weeks ago, we were ready to go back again, This time we opted for a late lunch/early dinner on our way back to the ferry home. The restaurant was not busy, since it was only 3:15 pm. It was a nice, sunny Fall day, and my wife decided that we should sit out... More
