We loved everything about this place -- casual, bustling vibe with creative, fine-dining quality food. Every bite was delicious and we had a great evening to start our stay in Tofino. So many terrific restaurants to choose from and we weren't disappointed with our choice.

The squid and octopus starters were insane - the sauce on the squid in particular was a masterpiece. The burger was thought to be a boring choice & turned out to be a gourmet revelation! I’ve been here a few times before and was happy,...More

Visited the Wolf twice on a short stay at Long Beach. Excellent service and great food and drink. Can be busy here at peak times but staff try hard to accommodate everyone. Will definitely come here again.

Everything about our visit was excellent. This was our third time here and it’s consistently great. My preference is definitely to sit at the bar and eat slow and enjoy multiple dishes. The bartenders are technical experts and are also super friendly and helpful. We...More

We arrived for an early dinner but were told the dining room opened at 5pm so our only option was eating in the bar seating area. Our dining experience was beyond what we expected. We opted to share three starters which gave us a wide...More

I’m not from Tofino but I would make them on a Friday night. It’s a popular place in Tofino. If you get a reservation then you can sit upstairs which is nicer.
