For the second year in a row, we went to the Pointe to get the cheese plate! The cheeses are all Canadian, with various types to choose from. The plate comes with honeycomb, pear, bee pollen, a type of sweet sauce, and hazelnuts. Everything on the plate was so great and filling!

Our meals were exceptional. The servers were polite, professional and very attentive. The food was well presented and prepared and included tastes which were delicious and which prompted some questions. I love a meal that does that!. In addition there are binoculars available to watch the many sights just beyond the glass.

Good food with magnificent view. High end fine dining. Customer service is average and is business like and do not appear to be sincere.

If you are visiting the Pacific coast on Vancouver Island and are looking for a great diner experience you can safely bet on this exquisite place. Service, food, settings, everything is right. In the top price range but most of what they use is local or from BC and the proprietor’s chardonnay is quite good. Note that tables besides the... More

Definitely a place for foodies to visit and savour. Check the menu online before you go and make sure there's something that interests you. We had great food but wasn't really my taste. That said, the service is impeccable, the wine list extensive and those views .. well, one of the most impressive views in the world.

After a wonderful whaling tour, we were happy to find a table at the Wikaninnish Inn. We received a friendly welcome from a lovely young Australian woman with whom we shared brief travel stories. As we admired the view another staff came to take our order which arrived quickly. Although we didn't stay long, it was a delicious meal, well... More

Difficult to get a reservation for dinner so plan ahead. It is expensive but you get the best service and quality food. Wine selection is extensive.

The dining room looks out over the ocean and is warm and cozy. The menu is creative and everything is nicely prepared. A great place for a special night out.

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.
