My first time there. We sat outside under the large awning. The staff were friendly and kept us hydrated and happy. I ordered the Spicy Halibut Wrap. The food came fairly quick and it was absolutely amazing. I left so full but I couldn’t stop...More

I'd heard about this restaurant as THE place in town to go for fish and chips, and I was dying for some fish for lunch from B.C.'s Pacific coast. I chose the $18.95 Britannia Platter which featured either cod or halibut. I couldn't decide which...More

I do not recommend this place at all. We sat down, ordered food straight away (egg Benny). 45 mins later our food arrived, with the wrong order and we were told “the kitchen is closing and this is all we have,”. SHOCKED we said that...More
