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 Executive Chef Warren Barr'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

It's a special place. Very attractive, elegant, beautiful view and refined menu. The tasting menu is very expensive especially with wine pairing but did not appeal to us anyways. We ordered a la carte, outstanding steelhead salmon and very good sablefish with some appetizers and...More

Tofino has an array of local funky, odd, different, "west coast/left coast" alternative restaurants that if you are of a certain age and don't mind taking the risk into the unknown, have at it. However, if attentive, quality, non-intrusive service is a must and exceptionally...More
