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.

“Best view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Best oysters we have ever eaten. We had some cocktails and oysters and the service was impeccable. They made us feel as though we were royalty. Everything was so good we had to have another round including the oysters...A must go!

“Fish & Chips w/ an amazing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

The food was good, plating was really nice, and we had a seat right against the window looking out at Chesterman beach. We sat there for a couple hours enjoying food, drinks, and just watching the waves come in. Was very tranquil. Found it a bit crowded closer to dinner time (some of the tables around the corners go into each other) so i would suggest go for lunch or sometime when its not as busy!

“Quite simply an exceptional dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

I've been to the Pointe 3 times on visits to Tofino.
The Wick is truly a wonderful spot,
and the Pointe restaurant excels at the food, the service, and most of all the most magnificent room to eat in on the west coast.

I will go back every visit, and am always blown away!

“Excellent for any meal of the day.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

5-star quality any meal of the day. Dinner is very elegant and delicious. The chef is quite creative so be prepared for some lovely, inventive parings. The view from the restaurant is stunning so dinner can take a couple of hours while you admire the view.

“Amazing food, amazing view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

This is an outstanding restaurant in and outstanding location. The food was great, the service was good and the view was incredible. We were worried about the dress code (having been hiking) but it was not a problem.
