This place is very popular with the locals, whenever in Tofino you have got to stop here, their menu is outstanding and I recommend in particular everything seafood wise.i enjoy the gazebo where I sit outside and eat, it's so cozy and different.

Seafood chowder enjoyed at a picnic table - what could be better? Nothing! We loved the super tasty chowder served quickly & efficiently from a small space kitchen open to the outside which was almost like a food truck experience.

The food is outstanding, wherever possible it is locally sourced. Orders are freshly prepared and delicious. My wife had the pulled pork on a ciabatta and raved about it. My deep... More

I had the salmon burger and the crispy cod burger - by far the best fish burger I have ever had! The smoked tomato relish to die for! Fresh local ingredients cooked to perfection!

We had a very satisfying lunch here after doing a morning surf lesson! I ordered the oysters and chips, and my boyfriend had the shrimp burger. While my boyfriend really enjoyed his shrimp burger (and he is usually the pickier eater), I loved my oysters! It came with 5 fairly large oysters and a heaping pile of fries. The oysters... More

Don't forget...keep an eye out for those sneaky crows... More
