No wonder this place is so highly rated. Make a reservation if going in peak season or weekends. Excellent food and service - they really know their menu.

Lovely restaurant, set a couple of streets back from the main two streets in town but easy walking distance from anywhere in Tofino. Great staff and food was excellent.
