While we didnt eat here and only enjoyed drinks I have to give a kudos for the friendly service (even offering a blanket!) Nice vibe and great view.

Amazing view, waterfront dining. Exceptionally fresh food, decent amount served but overpriced for what you get. If you are in the mood for sushi at any price this is one of the only places in the area that has it. Definitely not the best I've ever had but certainly not the worst.

We just returned from one of the worst dining experiences we've ever had as a family. It's no wonder that this restaurant is so far down on the list for Tofino restaurants. It should be at the very bottom! We were warned by some locals that it would be 'rustic.' We don't need a fancy restaurant all the time, so... More

We got a nice spot on the patio with a great view of the ocean. The service was fast and the food was amazing. It was a little expensive but well worth it, the fish is very fresh. And the pieces/rolls are larger than your usual sushi place. We were there at opening time which is 1200hrs and there was... More

My boyfriend and I were craving fresh seafood on our first evening in Tofino and we stumbled upon Tough City Sushi. We knew right from the get go that it was a relaxed atmosphere as we sat ourselves on the patio overlooking the beach/waterfront. Our server was extremely slow... the table of 4 people next to us was seated after... More

What a wonderful spot! We ate the freshest wild salmon and tuna ever. View was more than spectacular. Weird that they only got 4 stars here. Go there if you ever have the opportunity! Staff is also really nice.

Very good sushi. Very friendly staff. Our kids had chicken skewers so it's not all sushi (but almost).

We enjoyed 2 dishes, the Sushi sampler and their Spicy platter, a couple of shots of warm Sake and a more perfect meal could not be had.

We came here looking for a good quick lunch on a somewhat rainy day. We did not expect much from this place on the outside but gave it a try. The owner makes you feel like you are family. He came around and said hi and chatted to everyone. We watched him later feed the birds down at the dock.... More
