Surveying the panoramic vistas from the westernmost point of Tofino’s idyllic Chesterman Beach, The Pointe Restaurant’s Refined West Coast cuisine and attentive service come gift-wrapped with 240 degree views of the Pacific Ocean, surrounding islands and wildlife. Much of the fresh seafood is fished from the very waters overlooked by The Pointe, and a longstanding focus on locally sourced, high quality ingredients is evident. Dinner is offered on a seasonal à la carte menu, but for the best of the best, try Executive Chef Warren Barr's weekly tasting menu; Daily brunch is a true treat. Out of the ordinary desserts reflect an innovative Pastry program where most everything - from bread to butter to scrumptious chocolate croissants are housemade. An extensive wine list, recognized yearly by Wine Spectator magazine, showcases BC’s finest selections with a broad range of international bottlings. Over 100 Scotch Whiskies and a creative cocktail menu can be savoured in the comfortable On the Rocks Lounge. A true taste of Rustic Elegance On Nature’s Edge - and the West Coast’s best views - are on the menu at The Pointe Restaurant and On the Rocks Lounge.

A beautiful restaurant. Unfortunately we didn't make a reservation, so we weren't able to stay for dinner. However, we did eat at the sister cafe on the Wickaninnish grounds and it was amazing

We came here for Sunday brunch as we couldn't get booked in for dinner. Very impressed with the surroundings - such a lovely view over the beach. I was extremely impressed with the Sunday brunch prices - pretty reasonable considering the venue and high quality service. I enjoyed a lovely seafood chowder, my son had chocolate pancakes and I can't... More

This restaurant has been reviewed by many. Just finished several days at the Wick and ate here a few times. This is certainly the high end gourmet place in Tofino. All dishes are well done and well presented. Definitely a place for foodies, as the chef is pretty imaginative. This is one of the premier view locations for any restaurant... More

We ate here one night and had a lovely meal, the food was excellent. The staff have the irritating habit of explaining every dish when they serve it to you. The time to do that would be when you are ordering. They seem to be trying very hard, but maybe a bit too hard.

The dining room no question about it has a great view. Service was wonderful throughout our dinner visit. The menu is not vast but had a good range. I had an exceptionally nice carrot salad to start with complete with a topping of curried granola if you can believe it - really worked. The halibut that followed was excellent as... More

Amazing is the only word that comes to mind when I think of The Point. We dined here two nights while we stayed at the Wickaninnish Inn. The staff are very well trained and provided 5 star plus service. The food was well designed, presented and prepared. Highly recommend this place.

We were in Tofino area for a few days and saw the reviews of The Pointe and thought that we'd go as it sounded lovely. The service was nice and it is definitely eye candy sitting in there with the big windows. If we had to be completely honest, the food and menu are written up to have a lot... More

We had an amazing time. The service was some of the best service I have ever had. They were very accommodating and polite. We had a pretty good view. I thought we wouldn't get a view because we had kids. A lot of times at fancier restaurants, they don't treat you very good when you have kids but they were... More

Located with an amazing view of Chesterman Beach, The Point offers top of the line service and delicious food. Everything my family ordered was rich with flavour. Can't wait to head back for another visit.
