Sunset View with yummy sushi & blanket

We enjoyed a beautiful sunset with cozy blankets while noshing on some delicious sushi. Locally sourced, the salmon was delicious. Laid-back/causal place - family friendly.

We loved this place! Ate here two dinners in a row, on the back deck, and enjoyed the view, the good wine and beer, and the delicious and varied veg options. Service was good and friendly, there are blankets to cuddle in if it's cool. Loved it!

Varied menu, prompt and friendly service. Raw oysters were scrumptious and addicting. Main Street Sushi Roll was amazing. Highly recommended.

That about says it all. The rest of our meal took forever as well....but a glass of milk at 2pm after a lunch rush should not take that long. I also found it overpriced, but that's my personal opinion. Won't be back.

We ate here after a long day of exploring Tofino and beyond. We were nicely welcomed even though we weren't really dressed for dining, but maybe this is common in Canada. One of our family isn't really into sushi but really enjoyed some appetizers and a chicken plate. The rest of us took the sushi. It was excellent. You taste... More

We spent 6 days in Tofino and this quickly became one of our favorites. Casual and unpretentious and pretty good sushi. The view from the tables is great and a nice lace to eat, drink, and watch the boats, birds, and float planes go by. Nice Tee shirts is you need a souvenir.

The back balcony offers a beautiful view of the mountains. Staff are very friendly and a good selection. Not as knowledgeable to Japanese customs though if you are looking for an authentic Japanese cuisine experience. However food is delicious... Avoid the house sake and spend the 2 extra bucks for something thats actually worthy.

We went to Tough City Sushi for a drink and to sit and enjoy the views over the bay. The staff were very friendly and the drunks reasonably priced. We did see some great sushi being served which looked fabulous.

My wife and I had dinner at this restaurant in July 2015. We sat in the back, outside on the patio, overlooking the water and the mountains ... it is a great view. We ordered the prawn tempura and a mix of sushis ... everything was excellent. The restaurant has a casual atmosphere and friendly / helpful staff.
