A great place to dine inside or out. Very wide menu and drinks list. Good friendly service. May need to book. It's rightly popular.

Our B&B hosts strongly recommended coming to Shelter for a special treat on our honeymoon, and we were so happy with our meals. Downstairs appeared to have more casual dining, but we sat upstairs in the more formal area. Great wine, truly delicious food and a wonderful atmosphere provided a romantic conclusion to our delightful honeymoon in Tofino.

Keep up the good work!

We had a dinner there and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and fair value for the dollar. Service was good and staff friendly. Nice views out to the ocean and there outside seating also.

We had a great meal at this restaurant. The food is delicious, fresh with an interesting menu and great beers on tap.
The restaurant has two floors. Downstairs busy, noisy with huge tv and an open kitchen. The atmosphere is great for young people .
However if one is looking for a quiet and relaxed dining, upstairs is perfect.
There is also a beautiful , large and inviting patio.
The service was lovely , attentive and accommodating .
We had a great dinner and every thing we ordered was very good.
This is a great addition to Tofino and I highly recommend it

We had lunch at Shelter and I may now be spoiled for Fish Tacos anywhere else. They were perfect, I also had Oysters as an appetizer and they were very fresh and perfectly prepared. My husband had the Kale salad, that may have been one of the best salads I've ever tasted. The service was also incredible and the view delightful.

If you are in Tofino you really should take the time to eat at Shelter.
