“Always special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

We thoroughly enjoy the great room setting overlooking the beach. The eclectic mix of furniture is tasteful and inviting while private and comfortable as well. Dinner is always top quality and focuses on local, fresh ingredients with an array of seafood choices.

“Meh”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

Our waiter could not have been less interested in serving us if he tried. The food was okay, but was the least memorable of our trip to Tofino. It was also our most expensive meal, and should have been the most wonderful, as we had just gotten engaged that day!! Too bad about the waiter - suggest he stick to surfing or something he enjoys.

“crab cakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

Seriously the view over looking the beach watching surfers at dusk was amazing. the crab cakes are actually to die for. you get what you pay for. The service was o.k . the wine was nice. not the most comfortable chairs to sit in. but worth every moment for sure.

“Great food in the Great Room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Had dinner two nights in a row during our stay. Had the feature vegetarian dish one night. Quinoa in a yellow curry with vegetables and dried apricots. The portion was large and quite tasty. I ordered salmon the next night. It was delicious and came with a pea puree and risotto. Another large portioned meal. The prices are in mid 20's and low 30's. My husband had the burger and it was so good, he ordered it again the second night. We ordered a dozen oysters on the half shell for $28 and they were really good. Other dishes we saw come out like the prawn linguine and one of their pizzas looked really great. The children's menu has some healthy options, comes with a drink and ice cream for $9. The service is fine. It's a quiet restaurant with beautiful ocean views. Didn't try the desserts though.
If you stay at the lodge, you will get daily complimentary continental breakfasts.
