The setting and the view are beautiful. The staff are wonderful and very good at what they do. The food is elegant in presentation and superb to taste (the elk and cod are magnificent). A real fine dinging experience. But whether it's worth the exorbitant prices is a little more debatable ($300 for 2 people). Not entirely sure any meal... More

Absolutely stunning place. Not cheap but worth it. Best halibut I've had. Lovely meal and atmosphere. Seriously could not recommend it more.

We happened to have dinner there on a Tuesday night so was very quiet in the restaurant. Service was great and there were even a couple little extra tasty tidbits that were offered to us that were quite lovely. Meal was expensive but worth it. A great evening in virtually every respect.

We had two supper (and super) meals at the Pointe on this stay. From our previous stay at the Wickaninnish and experience at the restaurant we decided to spoil ourselves by dining on both evenings at the restaurant. The first night our server was Reema, and she was professional, courteous and personable. Our food and drinks were lovely. The second... More

Fantastic Service and atmosphere. Enjoyed a very nice dinner (very high quality but overpriced) and a great breakfast with a view to die for.

Check out day and we leave Tofino, with the intention of having brunch at the world famous Wickaninnish Inn. Just one warning folks when you are heading south the sign is almost non-existant (we went too far and had to turn around). We had an incredible table, right on the point of the restaurant looking out over the ocean, beach... More

We arrived at 330 ish and would love to of had a drink and an appie. We were looking forward to the beautiful view but we're told no they were setting up for dinner so we couldn't sit there. We left, maybe next time but long beach lodge was very accommodating and the views and fireplace are amazing l!

stormy surf, miles of beach, rain forests along the coast, rocky islands dotting the horizon and wildlife teaming outside your view plane should be reason enough to stop and eat here. however, the food was a compliment to all that you want to come here for.

Description
Surveying the panoramic vistas from the westernmost point of Tofino’s idyllic Chesterman Beach, The Pointe Restaurant’s Refined West Coast cuisine and attentive service come gift-wrapped with 240 degree views of the Pacific Ocean, surrounding islands and wildlife. Much of the fresh seafood is fished from the very waters overlooked by The Pointe, and a longstanding focus on locally sourced, high quality ingredients is evident. Dinner is offered on a seasonal à la carte menu, but for the best of the best, try Executive Chef Warren Barr's weekly tasting menu; Daily brunch is a true treat. Out of the ordinary desserts reflect an innovative Pastry program where most everything - from bread to butter to scrumptious chocolate croissants are housemade. An extensive wine list, recognized yearly by Wine Spectator magazine, showcases BC’s finest selections with a broad range of international bottlings. Over 100 Scotch Whiskies and a creative cocktail menu can be savoured in the comfortable On the Rocks Lounge. A true taste of Rustic Elegance On Nature’s Edge - and the West Coast’s best views - are on the menu at The Pointe Restaurant and On the Rocks Lounge.
