Advice: Make a reservation or drop by, open for lunch and dinner.
Recognizing an eatery who has been feeding neighborhood diners for over 10 years seems to be an anomaly these days, one of my favourites has been doing just that. Focussing on fresh fish and seafood, the Fish Café keeps it simple and seasonal, last summer they tied for 1st place in my Best Fish & Chips in Vancouver, this is one of those places worth visiting if you have yet to do. Asides from their grilled and fried fish, they also offer dishes with prawns, mussels and other seafood choices. I have had their delicious Halibut Fish & Chips ($18.95) 2 large pieces of halibut, fries, tartar sauce and ketchup with lemon wedges; as well as their Salmon & Chips ($14.95) 2 large pieces of halibut, fries, tartar sauce and ketchup with lemon wedges. Most recently I had the Blackened Salmon Salad ($12) filled with greens, tomatoes, corn and other vegetables topped with a large serving of blackened salmon.
Owner/Chef Marcus Stiller is in the kitchen, he knows how to cook the perfect fish which he has been doing since day one. It often takes a lot of passion and hard work to keep a restaurant going over a year, and Marcus has worked his craft for over the past 13 years. He has a simple wine and beer list, along with fish and seafood with flavour, and he is always up for an informative chat.
