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.

A combination of superb food, great service, amazing rugged views and rustic comfortable surroundings makes for a perfect dining experience. Joined our friends for a special dinner at The Point Restaurant during our three day stay at the Wickininnish Inn in Tofino on Vancouver Island rugged west coast. Excellent menu and delicious cuisine made for a perfect night. Worth the 4 hour drive from Victoria just for the meal.

Great location, nice food, superb staff... however the place feels like it is trying too hard and end up just a little bit ‘played with’ on the plate... but try it and see what you think!

Views don’t come much better than this at The Pointe. Stunning view over Chesterman Beach and the Pacific Ocean crashing onto the rocks below.

Excellent wine list, with strong emphasis on local BC wine (much more varied than I would have guessed, and great quality) without omitting offerings of quality from just about everywhere else, too. And a reasonable range available at the lower price bracket.

Service was very good and pleasant. Overall cost was what I would do expect for somewhere like this.

Which brings me to the menu. I really expected to give The Pointe top score, but feel that the menu is just trying too hard. There are many great local food resources, there is no need to over complicate things. Carrots cooked in beeswax? Really? Perhaps I’m just a philistine, but I like good ingredients cooked simply. But don’t get me wrong, this is a great place to dine and I recommend you try it and make up your own mind.

The food was excellent and the service matched. The round house built of cedar was excellent architecture out on the point just makes it that much better.
