Bonds Fish and Chips Nanaimo

Bonds Fish and ChipsBond's Fish and Chips, 1708 Bowen Road, is Nanaimo's oldest existing restaurant, founded by Warner Bond in 1945 at a Nicol Street location. Today it's still run by the same extended family and has a loyal clientel. The 10 tables are between the door and open kitchen.

Needless to say, various incarnations of traditional English fish and chips occupy the bulk of the menu with cod and chips or halibut and chips. Extra pieces of fish are strangely expensive, so stick with one piece. If you crave something more exotic, there are fish burgers, chicken strips, and hamburgers. Oninons, lettuce, and tomato on your hamburger is extra. Everything comes with coleslaw and a dinner bun, but gravy also costs more. Dessert is homemade pie with ice cream. The French fries served here are good and the fish isn't bad either.

A takeout counter sells orders of fish and chips for a bit less than you'll pay at a table (but keep your eye on the price of the fish). Bond's is open Monday to Thursday from 11:30 am to 7:30 pm, Friday 11:30 am to 8:30 pm, Saturday noon to 7:30 pm, and Sunday 4 pm to 7 pm. Look for it in a strip mall on Bowen Road across the parking lot from Little Caesar's Pizza.
