Based on the TripAdvisor ranking of RedCan Gourmet we chose one of their takeout dinner options on a recent trip to Tofino. Gourmet it was not! We both had the main of pan-seared local wild salmon with vegetables and a side salad. The salad and particularly the vinaigrette was the best part of the meal. Sadly the salmon was overcooked (unforgivable anywhere but especially in Tofino) and the accompanying sauce, although flavorful, had been reduced too much and was overly salty. Our meals did not meet the expectations set by other reviews on TripAdvisor. We won’t be back.

First off, this is more of a takeout place, there are two picnic tables outside but no seating otherwise. Four of us at here on the weekend and only one of us found our food to be really good. The wait was rather long for food. The pizza was ok but lacking in toppings and very very doughy. The salmon plus beet salad sandwich was really nice but rather expensive for a sandwich at $15. The pulled pork sandwich was far to sweet but decent otherwise. The chowder was tasty but super watery and not creamy at all like chowder should be. We didn't have time to eat at a lot of places in Tofino so we can't compare but if this is the best Tofino has to offer it's rather dissappointing!

Tim and his team have catered for two wedding functions for our family and both were amazing. One was brunch and the other a dinner. The food at both was delicious! Tim was fabulous on working with us to select a menu that we wanted. Every part of both meals was perfect. And the staff were extremely professional and top notch. We have also had take out pizza and salad for dinner - yummy. Red Can is a great alternative for dinner in Tofino.

RedCan Gourmet was recommended by my Whale Watching Guide and after trying one of the great Sandwiches ( Wild Salmon plus Beet salad ) I must admit that tis Spot is simply great. They are known as a brilliant caterer but are open during daytime for any kind of lunch and dinner. All is made of local food. It's not recommended to have a romantic Dinner there but that's not intended. And bring some time and you will enjoy the great chats with the Chefs.
