“Good Japanese food, amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

What a place to have dinner. We sat on the terrace in the evening sunshine watching the bald eagles. We shared a very tasty Spice Platter and some Seafood Tempura. The wine, not unusually for BC, comes out at about $9 a glass, but I went for a Tuff Ale ($6.25), which was delicious. Service friendly but efficient, and there are some fascinating objects and artefacts inside the cafe.

“We had take out Sushi! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Sushi was really tasty! I really enjoyed the roll with cream cheese and smoked salmon! Delicious! It is a bit on the pricey side for Sushi but you are in Tofino so it's expected!

“Sushi should be this good everywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Crazy Ron runs a great little sushi place here in Tofino. The sushi is always super fresh, as it should be. A wide variety of rolls, raw fish, sake and more.

If you get a chance to meet Crazy Ron, you'll never ever forget this place. Service here is always good and the sushi is well priced, especially for the amount of fish you get.

On a side note, Tough City does close for a few months in the winter, so check before you go.
