Fish and Chips...Better than the UK

Excellent, fresh and 10/10. We all agreed better than the past 2 UK or Ireland trips. You sit outside on picnic benches and order at the window.

we came here just by chance and will stay with this original restaurant forever! Their food is 110% fresh, home made and delicious, their people are priests of superb hospitality and the service, local environment is the natural sensation of the beauty, simplicity and balance (I am an older grouch and I never drink or use any other "supportive" substances!)...

We stopped in at the Wildside Grill for breakfast because we had a few minutes to kill. We were not expecting the food to be so good from a "food truck" type of establishment. We had the chorizo ciabatta and the huevos breakfast tacos. I have eaten many many different breakfast foods but this was unforgettable. Unbelievable taste, and would... More

We found the Wildside Grill whilst trying to stick to our dining budget whilst staying in Tofino - not always easy to do! We bought our fish and chips to take away although there are tables outside the grill. I had salmon and my wife had cod - cooked in breadcrumbs rather than batter but beautiful non the less -...

Our first night in Tofino and we stumbled onto this small, unassuming looking place. We were a little nervous by the appearance, but the food was delicious. We had the fish and chips, fish taco, salmon burger and gumbo. All was superb. And inexpensive to boot. We will be back again before we leave!

We enjoyed our lunch, excellent food. Seating could have been a bit better although it was good for being a take out grill. Service was good and quick.

Fish fresh-caught. Staff friendly and knowledgeable. Good variety of menu. Ling cod perfectly cooked with delicious moistness, but sockeye salmon overcooked and little dry.

We found this place when looking for Tacofino and were pleasantly surprised!! A really great food truck style takeout place. Super fresh and yummy food. Tuna burger was awesome as was the prawn burger. Would have stopped again if time allowed!
