“We Love This Place”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

The food is magnificent. Fresh and simply scrumptious. We visited Tofino for 7 days and we ate diinner here every evening. For 2 nights at least I ate something other than the Killer Fish Tacos, (Buffalo Short Ribs) and a salad. I could live on the Killer Fish Tacos and as long as I continue to holiday in Tofino normally twice a year, I will continue to eat at SoBo. Staff were also great and no their business.

“YUM”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

This restaurant is off the beaten track but the atmosphere and food is not to be missed. We had been told by friends that dinner at SoBo was a must. We shared a few plates because we just couldn't decide on just one.

“Food makes this place”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

The decor feels more like a cafe but the food did not disappoint. Mains were at the pricier end but cheaper options were available.

“A surprise treat.”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

While looking for a spot for lunch in Tofino, we choose SoBo because it looked clean, had lots of windows and lots of cars out front. We were happy we did. Everyone was very friendly and service was quick. We shared the fried polenta (Yum!) and both had the vege burger, which is really more like a vege burger sloppy joe. I had it without the bun and it really seemed to be much better to eat with a fork and knife than as a burger-still it was wholesome, healthy and delicious. Ended the meal with a gluten free, chocolate almond cookie-also yum! Would definitely go back there for another yummy meal.
