I was with my family and we have pretty much ordered everything on the menu. Money well spent and I will come back there again. Besides the fish and chips I would also recommend the Oysters and chips. Enjoy!

Stopped at the Wildside at the Outside the Break area rather than the one near the water - which may be the more authentic and better place to stop. The kids behind the counter were having a good time and the order wasn't entirely accurate,...More

Had read about Wildside in a local travel magazine so gave it a try when we were visiting Tofino. The fish tacos I ordered were delicious! I also tried some of my son's poutine - mmm. I can't wait to return and eat there again.
