Description: Resort guests, visitors to Tofino and local residents are welcomed in the Great Room and during the summer on the SandBar Bistro patio. Long Beach Lodge Resort offers inspired cuisine with inspiring Pacific vistas 7:30am to 10pm daily. The Resort's location on the edge of Cox Bay, offers breathtaking ocean views from the wild and beautiful west coast that is unique to Vancouver Island. Equally spectacular is the impressive interior architecture of the Great Room. The open concept enables uninterrupted views of nature while the modern furnishings, wood accents and fireplace features provide the warmth and feeling of a living room setting.

“Inventive Menu, Friendly Hospitality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

This restaurant is situated in the beautiful main level of the Long Beach Lodge Resort. There is an amazing 16 foot vaulted ceiling supported by massive wooden beams. There is an extensive menu, including vegetarian, meats, seafood, pastas, pizzas. During our visit there was a fixed price 3 course menu for $39. I ordered the seafood chowder and found it flavorful, but far too much sodium ( and I like salted food ). Seafood linguini was excellent. A lot of interesting desserts on offer. Service was friendly and efficient. Ambiance is very warm and cozy with a wood burning fireplace adjacent.

Excellent service, Excellent food, and a fabulous view... Had the seafood chowder for lunch and it was very flavourful and light... Dinner was seafood again and delicious as well, service was great both times, servers great to talk to if you want to ask questions on the area as well left you to talk. Would definitely return again

“Great food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

My family and I stay here everytime we go to Tofino. What a great resort, I can not say enough about it. The staff here is wonderful!! They give it 100%. The restaurant is open kitch style, and it's interesting to watch the chefs make the amazing food. The morning buffet made my morning sunny, even when Tofino was full of rain.

“FOOD/ WINE/ SERVICE/ VIEW = my amazing dining experience at Long Beach Lodge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

This culinary tale starts with the word
at·trac·tive
   [uh-trak-tiv] Show IPA

adjective
1.
providing pleasure or delight, especially in appearance or manner; pleasing; charming; alluring: an attractive personality.

I like this word. It can speak volumes about a person/ place, or thing.
Last night I had the pleasure of experiencing the defintion of attractive in every sense.
The dinner was a multi course fusion of fresh local ingredients and flavours put together in a creative way. At times veering towards the more non traditional. The whole meal was
served with style. The service was low key but very attentive. The perfect balance. And the wine list is outstanding. My favourite of the dinner was the creme brulee and scotch pairing at the end. Not too mention the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean as my back drop and a cracking fire to lend to the ambience. Yes, It was a very attractive experience to say the least!
