We have eaten oysters in lots of resturants but these have to be the best we have ever had....sorry Seattle you have nothing on Tofino. We have eaten here on two different trips and they have not disappointed each time. Atmosphere is friendly and comfortable, you can dress casual or classy. Will return again and again.

He made a couple of dinner suggestions, i went with his suggestion of blackened snapper. I'm not a spicy food fan but this was absolutely amazing !! Albeit on the spicy side it... More

Dropped in here by chance on a visit to Tofino, and how glad I am that we did. The lunchtime menu was extensive, and the salmon BLT I had was delicious. The wine and beer lists were excellent and they had a good range of scotch. Service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing, and the atmosphere was enhanced by... More

The food was very good and hot. Service was good. Friendly staff. Reasonably price food. Can be a very busy place in the Summer and on weekends, so make sure you reserve.

This place is amazing. From the moment the friendly staff show you to your table until you wave goodbye it is a delightful experience. The service is super friendly but not in your face. The food is exceptional and the best we had while visiting the area. We dined twice it was so good. Thanks for making good food in... More

We were bitterly disappointed with this restaurant. We had paid a visit a year ago and could not rave about it enough. So went back as this was to be a return to a place we thought we could not do wrong. We reserved a table the night before and requested a window table. Imagine our surprise when we were... More

Given the quality of other restaurants in Tofino I was expecting a lot from this place but instead found nondescript food and service. I wouldn't recommend Schooners there is nothing spectacular about this place except for the prices they charge.
