We received a buy one get one 50% off coupon from the whale watching tour, which made eating here a great option. We had found that some restaurants in Tofino didn't give much food for the price, but Jamie's was great! We both ordered pasta and we both had leftovers. We also ordered their homemade kettle chips which were good but a bit too salty for our liking. Overall, this is a great restaurant!

We decided to come here for dinner as we read some reviews on it and it was close by. Boy we were not disappointed! When you go anywhere with 2 families (4 kids 5 and under), you get used to being swept under the rug, places generally want you out of there asap. The service was excellent, with the server asking if we wanted the kids served first (YES), and got them all settled in with their drinks and colouring.

The food - the food was great, most of us ordered seafood since we felt like that would be more of a specialty item in Tofino. The Bouillabaisse was terrific, while my husband had the mussels (although he preferred my dish more). He also had 2 orders of their feature dish that evening - smoked oysters, and it was beyond good - so rich and creamy - apparently it won some competition, we understand why!

Just a comfortable eating experience, beyond what we were expecting, which is why I'm giving Jamie's 5 stars.

My family and I visited Jamie's during our recent short break in Tofino. It was a cold, wet midweek evening in April, so not exactly busy. We weren't sure what to expect, but what we got was huge portions of good food for reasonable prices. The menu was varied with some good veggie and oriental options as well as burgers, pasta, steaks and salmon. They also sell a good range of local beer - proper beer, not lager! Everything was well cooked and presented, and my burger was to die for. All served with a huge smile by staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcome and valued. The only disappointment was that we had no room for dessert! We will definitely come again next time we are in Tofino.

Stopped for Dinner and had burgers. Food was quite good and very reasonably priced compared to most eateries in the area. Cold beer was perfect to have with the burger.

The restaurant is located at the Jamie's Rainforest Inn right next to the Pacific Rim Highway and doesn't really makes you have too high of expectations from the outside. The interior is quite dark, but cozy, with some interesting arty decoration. The restaurant was nearly empty which obviously was to blame on the timing of our visit there (mid May, low season).
The staff was very friendly and the waiter that took care of us was joking around all the time (probably his routine), but never in a way that it would annoy you.
We ordered four different meals, all of which were excellent. Especially the salmon dishes, no matter whether as a burger or with pasta or as as seared salmon. The caramelized honey sauce that came with the roasted chicken was also very tasty.
Definitely the place to go when you are staying in the Pacific Rim National Park area and want to have a nice dinner!
