Description: 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 Chef de Cuisine Nick Nutting’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.

Fancy restaurant where you pay a lot for a little bit of food. But the food is tasty. So, try and dine when you can also enjoy the ocean view in the daylight.

My husband and I were told that we had to go to the dining room at the Wickaninnish Inn while we are in Tofino so we went there for lunch so we could see the view. wow, it was incredible, seeing the huge waves and the kids surfing, just wonderful. And the food was so very good, our server, Katlyn,... More

Lovely atmosphere. Unbelievable view. Four of us had dinner. The fish and chips were delicious. The meat was tender. The dessert was amazing.

I have been to the Wick on a number of occasions and I always enjoy it. This time we took our friends from overseas and they were delighted with the place. I normally have lunch but this time I opted for breakfast since it was still available. While the breakfast was very good - I did feel that it was... More

Went for our last breakfast before hitting the road and everything was perfectly cooked / perfect temperatures etc. Absolutely worth the price - excellent flavors / excellent service and presentation.

Over the last decade we have enjoyed The Wick many times. Today was equally special as we went for lunch. The menu is half breakfast/brunch and half lunch items. Perfect for the two of us. Seated immediately at a premier window table it was high tide and the waves were crashing on the rocks right below our window adding drama... More

We decided to go for the tasting menu with wine pairings and it proved a great choice. Food presentation and flavour was excellent but the accompanying wines were sensational. Mostly BC wines and locally sourced foods. What made the evening so enjoyable was that when we made the reservation Chef David Sider responded right away to the fact that one... More

We stayed at the Wickaninnish Inn and ate every night at the Pointe Restaurant, but never tired of the food. We found there was plenty of variety on offer to satisfy us for the six nights we stayed at the Inn. The restaurant is constructed of a lot of wood, very rustic and in keeping with its surroundings and is... More
