I haven't been there for the past year, but it seems to fluctuate. It was very good the past couple of times we've eaten there, but we did have one below par experience a few years' back. Price-wise, it's not too bad for a "nice meal out." Not at pricey as the Rainforest Café.

I was there on 9/7/07 for dinner with my wife.

Here's the rules in Tofino:

You're going to fill up your tables if you have a restaurant so all entrees should be $27-$32.

Why sell good food at a $22 price point if your tables are full?

Don't sell plank grilled salmon, put baby shrimp in a sauce on it and charge $30.

Be creative, use a sauce with a reduction of three ingredients, and charge the tourists high dollars for food that is "just ok".

Maybe it's better early in the summer when people aren't cranky about their jobs.

Eat at Sobo. It's the best place by far, food quality and price.
