Description: Surveying the panoramic vistas from the westernmost point of Tofino’s idyllic Chesterman Beach, The Pointe Restaurant’s Refined West Coast cuisine and attentive service come gift-wrapped with 240 degree views of the Pacific Ocean, surrounding islands and wildlife. Much of the fresh seafood is fished from the very waters overlooked by The Pointe, and a longstanding focus on locally sourced, high quality ingredients is evident. Dinner is offered on a seasonal à la carte menu, but for the best of the best, try Executive Chef Warren Barr's weekly tasting menu; Daily brunch is a true treat. Out of the ordinary desserts reflect an innovative Pastry program where most everything - from bread to butter to scrumptious chocolate croissants are housemade. An extensive wine list, recognized yearly by Wine Spectator magazine, showcases BC’s finest selections with a broad range of international bottlings. Over 100 Scotch Whiskies and a creative cocktail menu can be savoured in the comfortable On the Rocks Lounge. A true taste of Rustic Elegance On Nature’s Edge - and the West Coast’s best views - are on the menu at The Pointe Restaurant and On the Rocks Lounge.

Easily made my Top 5 restaurants in the world list; for the quite unique blend of panoramic coastal water level viewpoint combined with their unbelievable menu. I had the sablefish (before I was vegetarian) and it was one of the most amazing and memorable dishes I've ever had the luxury of eating. The service was near-perfect, even the chef came out to ensure the fish was up to his standard. The only place with better service that I've experienced was Gordon Ramsey's The London in NYC - just for comparison! This is the place to splurge for special occasions but is far too expensive to frequent. Enjoy!

This resturant although pricey is worth trying out. Went for lunch and the view and atmosphere is amazing. The restaurant is ocean front with windows all around and would be a great spot if there was a storm on the horizon. The food was excellent and the staff was very efficient and friendly. You will pay top dollar for this restaurant but if you want to splurge this is the place in town.

Best oysters we have ever eaten. We had some cocktails and oysters and the service was impeccable. They made us feel as though we were royalty. Everything was so good we had to have another round including the oysters...A must go!

The food was good, plating was really nice, and we had a seat right against the window looking out at Chesterman beach. We sat there for a couple hours enjoying food, drinks, and just watching the waves come in. Was very tranquil. Found it a bit crowded closer to dinner time (some of the tables around the corners go into each other) so i would suggest go for lunch or sometime when its not as busy!

I've been to the Pointe 3 times on visits to Tofino.
The Wick is truly a wonderful spot,
and the Pointe restaurant excels at the food, the service, and most of all the most magnificent room to eat in on the west coast.

I will go back every visit, and am always blown away!
