Pajo's has become somewhat of a landmark in the village of Steveston. If you are in the mood for fish and chips, this is the best place to come to. But be prepared for a lineup, it moves fast and they pump out consistently great food. One of our family favourites. Love the dock location.

I am not sure why a lot of people like going here for fish n chips. Had tried this place couple times but I didn't like it the both times. Maybe it was my own personal preference but I didn't like their fries being soft and almost soggy texture. Fish batter is a little too thick and not crispy enough... More

Overrated place for fish and chips. Quite often greasy and soggy. Lineups on sunny days are not worth it. There are much better places outside of Steveston.

Really good fish and chips, nothing fancy but if you like fish and chips this is the place to go. One restaurant at Garry Point, one in Steveston.

The best mouth watering fish you will ever taste! If you like nice crispy, crunchy beer-type batter on the ouside and hot moist salmon, halibut or cod on the inside...this place is for you! We've been to two of their locations, Gary Pointe Park and The Warf and both are awesome! Don't let the long lines fool you, the speedy... More

Cod, haddock or Salmon. Pajos sells fish and chips which are s good as any I have tasted anywhere, including England. My favourite is the Haddock along with mushy peas and chips.

Sitting on the wharf, eating your fish and chips out of a cone of newspaper...nothing says Steveston like Pajo's. The fish is fresh and very good. On a sunny day there is nothing better!

Maybe it was the cold and rainy weather, maybe it was because we weren't all that hungry. The food is good, don't get me wrong. The fries are hot but not crispy, the fish pieces (especially the salmon and the halibut) were generous, but I wasn't blown away or ready to go back anytime soon. Will I eat here again?... More
