Since the new owners took over in May we have made several visits with never a disappointment. It's not often that the fries are as "crunchy" on the last bite as on the first, and the batter is superb, light, crispy and the fish moist and fresh, but here they are. Not a one time occurrence either, but every time.... More

We went for Saturday lunch, the food was excellent, we all had cod and chip, the fish was good and batter perfect. The new owners have done a great job, with the food and the decor. Great service too. One of our favourite places to go. Thank you.

However the two pieces were enough, the chips were good and also came with small coleslaw. The batter one the fish could use a little more... More

My mother in law and I went for dinner and had an amazing dinner. The scallop dinner I had was cooked to perfection, her fish and chips were awesome. The one of the owners brought us a free sample of South African sherry as it was soooo busy (on a Sunday night) that we had a little wait for our... More

Went by myself for a take-out. Had halibut, fries and mushy peas cole slaw and sauce. All was excellent and good portions. But a little more expensive than I expected at over $20.

Everything about our visit to Hylands was a delightful experience. We had tried to get into a Pub close to the ferries for a bite before the last ferry. Thankfully, it was too jammed and we had to zoom into Sidney to find a place to eat. I used to live on Resthaven, so we took the MacDonald Park turnoff... More

The restaurant is small but service and fish & chips are big time. The waitress was very accommodating to our needs and made sure our dining experience was enjoyable. The fish and chip were prepare and served to satisfy our craving for authentic fish & chips. can't wait to go back.
