Best calamari ever! Tender and tasty! Pasta dishes were also excellent. Would've liked to see some fresh fish on the menu, besides salmon. And perhaps fresh BC fruit for dessert or with cheese as an appetizer.

Great server, great food, lovely location and view. Only issue was the hostess. She was rude and unprofessional. A couple ahead of us wanted to sit inside, but she twisted their arm to sit outside. They eventually agreed. We wanted to sit outside and asked if there was a table on the patio , she said no. We asked how long it would be if we wanted to wait for one to open up. She said an hour (we had a reservation and we’re already there on time ). We sat inside & stared at an empty table on the patio for our entire meal. She just wanted to sit people. She didn’t care about guest preferences.

A combination of flavours unique and outstanding.
View is stellar and the service was warm and engaging. To top it all off, our table gave us a view of soaring eagles and fisherman arriving at the dock. Will definitely come back. Best restaurant in Tofino.

We ordered drinks, and then three main courses (pre tax, $45 per main). The mains arrived stone cold. I had to hunt down the server, whom I found chatting with his mates around the corner. They remade our meals. By the time they arrived, we had to wolf it down because the Uber (Whistle) was arriving. They comped two drink which was nice, but I think they think that their view gives them license to be indifferent to guest experience. There are better choices in Tofino and I wouldn’t go back. Since losing their head chef Paul Moran this place has gone down the drain. Try Wolf in the Fog or the Shelter.

Our server, Naomi, was excellent - friendly, funny. The food was amazing. It was our anniversary so they provided us with a free bottle of champagne. The Lemon Panna Cotta dessert was amazing - best dessert I've had in years.

Food was amazing when Paul was chef.
We booked our reservation a month ago and had to wait before walkins. Didn't have an option when booking reservation to be seated outside.
Food menu had limited options.

The pepperoni pizza was delicious. The waitress went out of her way to ensure the level of spice wasn't too much on my pasta order - she checked once and brought a taster out of the sauce to I could be sure! Super sweet of her. Lovely view of the harbour, nice atmosphere.

After we were seen to our table we were told 4 main items were not available that evening; mussels, oysters, wings, spaghetti, leaving limited options for what we could order. There was also no draft beer available at all, only bottles. We sat for dinner at 7:30 and were told at 8:30 that last call for drinks was 8:55. Our server was pleasant but the restaurant was practically empty with no atmosphere or ambience, even though it was very difficult to get a reservation. Was expecting more. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

Our visit was during a record heatwave and just after BC travel restrictions opened. They were doing there best and it was pretty good. You have to be patient and lower expectations.

Had the best dessert I have ever had - lemon pana cotta - so lemony !!

Pizza was fabulous-thin crust. Calamari so tender.
Beats most Van restaurants!

Beautiful location right on the water. Disappointed in the breakfast menus and pricing. $8 for a side of fruit which consisted of a couple of strawberries cut up and maybe half a cup of blueberries. Overpriced for quality of food. Server was nice but we only seen her twice while we were dining.
