fresh and hot

the fish tacos are delish! Fish tacos were ordered for me and typically I despise cod - but their ling cod tacos were beyond tasty! I had them again when I was there last summer! Their fries are good as well - plus their fried fish!

Fresh out of the sea that day! My wife and I enjoyed the really tasty fish and chips on offer in this quaint, open air take away. The queue can be quite long in the early evening, but that goes to show that lots of others also rate the food highly.

A little hole in the wall place that serves great selection of burgers including an amazing seared tuna sandwich. The fries are great also.

After reading the reviews, my wife and I decided to have lunch at Wildside Grill. This place is very popular, packed with locals and tourists. Still, the service is efficient. I had a beef burger and my wife had a tuna burger, which was absolutely excellent. The menu has beef burgers, fish burgers, fish and chips, etc.

Heard about this place. Owner is a fisherman (catches the fish) and the chef. Funky spot with outdoor seating. Everything is fresh, fresh, fresh. Eric had the fish tacos (spectacular) and me the halibut burger (oh my goodness- so delicious from the fish to the toppings to the bun) with fries (how can fries be so good).

This is more of a take-out restaurant. They do have an outdoor covered area to eat, but there is no table service. You walk up, order your food, pay and wait. The food was good and reasonably priced. Chicken burgers were excellent. Beans and rice wraps also very good.

Stopped here for lunch. Had an oyster burger , gumbo, seafood chowder and cod burger. Everything was good, oyster burger maybe even a bit too fresh tasting for me. A little pricey but definitely good food.

Quant setting, very good food especially the fish tacos at a cheap price...sorry it wasn't licensed because a beer would have been great!

We ended up eating here multiple times during our week stay in Tofino. It was just a bit pricy ($16+tax per 2 piece fish meal w/ fries and coleslaw) but not totally unexpected. It'd be nice if that came with a drink too. The staff were friendly. Food was pretty quick. Taste was awesome! Highly recommended!

Good meal, a bit of a wait but nothing more than usual from a restaurant that cooks it fresh. Picnic tables outside, a traditional oceanside fish n chips set up. Pulled pork poutine was over the top good!
