Picked up two orders of Fish & Chips last night. It was two strips of fish like Highliners Fish Sticks. Very lightly battered, extremely thin & dry. $44.00 for 2 people with coleslaw. Will not return there.

Tartan Fish and Chips has been our only go-to fish and chip restaurant for more than 30 years. This Oakville fixture has just-caught halibut, light and fluffy batter and great fresh cut french fries. The very best fish and chips in the world! Centrally located on Kerr Street.

I must be the minority here who doesn't rave about this place. I just find that the food here is between average and good. Granted that the service is fast and friendly, but the main thing about an eating place is the food. If I remember correctly, they charge for tartar sauce, an essential condiment to fish and chips.

We had tried a number of fish & chips places in Oakville before hearing about Tartan, and after a visit there we agreed they were the best in town. We have had many visits since then to both eat in and to take out and are always pleased with the quality of the meal. The restaurant has seating for about... More

Tartan has the best fish and chips in Oakville. Even travelled to Nova Scotia and Tartan was waaayyyy better.

Best fish and chips I have had in a while. Scottish decor and run by an Asian couple! The menu is simple halibut, haddock, chicken tenders all are fresh. The chips are hand cut, also salad, mushy peas, and spring rolls are offered.

Better than-I'm going to say it...Caz's which is an Oakville tradition. Tartan is a basic place, no liquor license but we usually take it away and enjoy at home while watching our favourite English television.

Large portions of chips. Tartar sauce is all in packets. I always order the cheapest fish and it's always good and crispy. It smells rather fried-foody in there, so don't go there if you have to go somewhere else afterwards, you'll smell like hot oil. The staff is friendly.

Thank Anne P
