We often have a meal in SoBo when we're in the area. They have an interesting menu and consistently good food. Highly recommended.

We had a chance to try this amazing restaurant. Our host had recommended it and it was exceptional. The food was delicious. My husband said his seafood chowder was the best he had ever had. My prawn pesto pizza was bursting with flavour. This is a must try.

The fireplace outside the front door on the chilly, rainy day lured us in to make our reservations for the evening meal. Our expectations were high due to the articles that we had read from diners who were extremely satisfied with this restaurant.

Our group of 7 expected to enjoy a lovely evening when the hostess settled us in to an alcove tucked away from the main dining space - nicely done! But when she began her haughty banter and continued in that manner, we realized that she was showing us a bit too much attitude for this lovely small town establishment. We hadn't come for a "big city" experience, although we were from the East Coast and have had some fine dining moments, but this was not destined to be of them. We had traveled thousands of miles to slow down and enjoy the local seafood and hospitality.
Our meals were just okay and we left feeling hollow because our server, who was also the management that evening, did nothing to make us welcome other than offer an nice table.
We later found that others have had similar experiences and don't plan to return until they "climb down off their high horse."
In retrospect, we should have eaten at our restaurant at the Wickininnish Inn which offered delicious food, wonderful attentive wait staff and a wonderful ocean view, but we wanted to sample Tofino's downtown restaurants - choosing this restaurant was a mistake not to be repeated.
