Description: Named Air Canada’s enRoute’s Best New Restaurant in Canada 2014, Wolf in the Fog captures the true spirit of Tofino. Chef Nick Nutting’s seasonal menu features seafood and fish in abundance from Tofino suppliers, meat and grain from Vancouver Island farmers, and wild greens and mushrooms foraged from the forests and seashores of Tofino. A focus on family-style gatherings, communal dining and share plates, encourages guests to engage with their food. Bringing a wealth of international technique and talent, the team holds a passion for the natural environment of Tofino and the produce sourced there – from foraging for chanterelles or cooking whole salmon for friends; Tofino is where they have chosen to be.

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 had the potato crusted oyster to start, kale salad, shrimp toast, and the trout crumpet. We even had an apple dessert. Everything had us talking about it on the first bite and missing it on the last. And the cocktails are incredible. The cedar sour is a staple but we also enjoyed a couple new ones this time including a freestyle cocktail from the bartender that was the best of the night.

Wolf in the Fog, I’m howling for you.

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 variety of tastes and the capabilities of the chef.
The kale salad, calamari and monk fish were creatively prepared with flavors we had not experienced before.
This restaurant deserves to be ranked high ... go see for yourself!

We had been told by so many people to go to this restaurant.
We only had time for brunch, but it was fantastic.
Would definitely recommend. Staff were super friendly and inviting.
