Delicious sushi, cold beer and a beautiful view from the patio. The staff was friendly and the food came quickly. We loved it!

“Freshest fish ever”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

What a wonderful spot! We ate the freshest wild salmon and tuna ever. View was more than spectacular. Weird that they only got 4 stars here. Go there if you ever have the opportunity! Staff is also really nice.

“Special atmosphere and great sushi”
Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

Very good sushi. Very friendly staff. Our kids had chicken skewers so it's not all sushi (but almost).

“Nice afternoon on the patio”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We enjoyed 2 dishes, the Sushi sampler and their Spicy platter, a couple of shots of warm Sake and a more perfect meal could not be had.

“A great surprise!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

We came here looking for a good quick lunch on a somewhat rainy day. We did not expect much from this place on the outside but gave it a try. The owner makes you feel like you are family. He came around and said hi and chatted to everyone. We watched him later feed the birds down at the dock.

The menu is a tad bit pricy for us (we are from the mainland) but the rolls were all fresh, delicious and different! I forgot the name but they had a great spicy tuna roll with a honey mustard sauce that I still remember.

Next time we are in Tofino we will make a point to stop in here. The patio is also great!
