Fresh and affordable selections of the ocean's finest at this Greenwood Avenue bistro

There are some dishes that never go out of style, fish ’n’ chips being one of ’em. And when you get a craving for this age-old favourite you can opt for the cheap as chips, fast-food variety or go for the halibut, and pay hook, line and sinker for a meal. Thankfully this cosy bistro on Greenwood Avenue anchors itself somewhere in the middle, offering fresh selections of the ocean’s finest without landing a weighty bill.

The fish, nearly 30 varieties of them, come in four grades; from $18.95, through to the exclusive catch of the day ($29.95), flown in direct that morning. The fillets can be prepared four ways, the most popular being pan-seared or battered. The latter is a bit hit and miss: the batter can come off stodgy, masking the taste of the fluffy white alfonsino. The marlin (New Zealand swordfish), however, comes off light and crispy to the last bite. A garden salad and ample serving of chips (not hand-cut) are served alongside.

Alternative selections include the lip-wetting Chilean red miso black cod, and we’re also intrigued by the foie gras and scallop served atop sultanas, fig, port and buttery brioche. Just one caveat: this is a seriously popular dive with Greenwood locals, so it’s best to call ahead to net yourself a table. Marc Checkley
