About
Honouring the history of our coastal locale, our restaurant was named after the year Tofino got its name. With a fresh take on local ingredients, our shared plates are devised by up-and-coming chef with an impressive pedigree, Paul Moran. Unwind off the water with wood-fired bites or a libation inspired by the tides.
