After having a VERY quiet stay in Tofino, due to winter weather and not many store or adventure activities being open, we had mostly eaten in our hotel for the convenience. Our hotel resteraunt was really average, so we decided to see if anything was open in town. The Shelter was awesome! Great food at great prices and not overly processed so when you wanted veggies you actually got veggies! It was such a great idea to have a section of the resteraunt for a more quiet dinner, but also a section that showed the hockey etc. Great choice of video viewing before the hockey started too! Our waitress was so great and helpful! Would recommend this place 100%.

We have been to The Shelter several times and always have the fish & chips. They come on a cedar plank....very unique. The coleslaw is really good also. The service is friendly and the food comes quick. We will be back next time we visit Tofino. Give it a try.....you won't be disappointed.

Awesome atmosphere, great tasty quality food and good service! The food is fresh and as local as possible. We always stop by when in town for lunch. Love this gem.

Had lunch at Shelter over the weekend. They found a way to up the ante on your standard fish and chips with presentation and a delicious coleslaw. The service was attentive but not overbearing. Definitely one of the best spots to eat in Tofino.
