We enjoyed our meals here on 2 evenings though regarded them as not particularly special though I think this a reflection not on the Inn's shortcomings but simply we are not "sushi people". The staff were enthusiastic, friendly and helpful and the place itself worth a visit regardless of any food. Even if you don't want to eat well worth... More

We had a great time here- lovely staff, great views of the water where we sat on the balcony and watched seals play in the water. The sushi was also excellent. I recommend the oysters sushi style the vinaigrette was amazing.

While browsing the shops in Tofino, we came across this delightful "Inn" overlooking the water. We didn't know that it was a Sushi restaurant until we went in to check it out. We were lucky enough to get a table on the deck, overlooking the water and Meares Island, a truly delightful setting. After ordering our sushi, it came promptly... More

Excellent sushi, sashimi and nigiri ! The view of the inlet is gorgeous, they have a deck to sit outside in nice weather. Don't miss this gem while you are in Tofino.

Went to The Inn at Tough City.. TERRIBLE SERVICE. Took over an hour and half to get sushi for 1 and 1 order of yakitori. The place was far from full or busy. The food was not worth the wait at all, I would have expected more from the way the puffed up there food upon walk in. It took... More

We had sushi for lunch. It is a funny place to eat. The atmosphere is a pub where they serve the sushi. But I must say, the sushi's are really great (and we are pretty critical). The are fresh made and the rolls are very creative with lots of different ingredients in it. The price is a bit high. The... More

We have been there in July 2013. We have been met by a friendly waitress who then promptly fulfilled our drink wishes, the food also arrived without letting us wait for too long. The sushi was fresh and tasted good, but for the price I would have expected a bit more. If you sit at the right table (or on... More

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.
