I have been to Go Fish about five times now. I am not a fan of their fish and chips, I would say Pajos Fish and Chips is way better. The last time I had their tuna sandwich and really enjoyed it. Knowing what to order is equally important as knowing where to eat.

This visit to Go Fish I shared the scallop sandwich (from the special menu - $11) , fries ($3.50) and the salmon tacones ($9 for two tacones). The salmon tacones and the scallop sandwich was just ok. When I eat fresh seafood I want the accoutrements to add to the flavor of the fish and not overpower it. The taste was clean for both but I couldn't taste the taste of salmon or the scallop, I could taste the spices and cumin that was added. In my opinion stick to the Tuna when ordering there.

The atmosphere is great. Eating outside on a fisherman's warf on False Creek during a sunny day feels fantastic. The one thing to be cautioned about is that you can expect to wait about 10mins for your food and you might not be able to sit at a table.

I know people love this place, so I might get hated on here but I know many people get confused with the experience rather than the food. The view is great and on a sunny day it is ever so pleasant to sit outside and eat food, but I want it all, good food, good people and good atmosphere. To me Go Fish is a little expensive for what you get, and I have not really enjoyed the food except for the Tuna.

Side Note - The guy behind was telling his girl, we should try those things, they are a combination of a taco and a cone, they are called TaconEZ or Taconies (similiar to how you would say Sauconys). Man, he had it, he said TACO correctly, and then said CONE correctly, why would you say TACONEZ. LOL

i love your blog...but
tacones is a spanish word

in spanish, the O is pronounced like 'oa' in goat and the E is pronounced like an A as in hay.

Huh. I didn't know that, but I was going to say that I pronounce it with the 'EEZ' on the end too. Anyway...

I love their fish and chips, and I didn't particularly enjoy Pajo's the one time I tried it. If you ever go to Victoria, you have to eat at Red Fish Blue Fish, which is a total rip-off of Go Fish, but BETTER. I reviewed it twice on my blog.

i got schooled. Boy is my face red. lol.

My buddy just told me that I made a mistake, the man said Ta-coh-neez (like Goonies) but it should be Ta-coh-nez.

Either way I was wrong. Thanks
