I have travelled extensively and The Schooner is truly a great place - great atmosphere, great service and even greater food - the Halibut Bawden Bay lived up to all recommendations. Amazing to find such a world class establishment in this small but special resort... Well done all at Schooner...

We just returned from dinner here. Had the most amazing meal - The Captains Plate. Great service as well as food and drink. We will be back.

This restaurant is an oasis next to the ocean. The service, food and presentation were all excellent. It would be difficult to find a restaurant like this in most towns many times the size of Tofino.

When we first walked in, it was late and the restaurant was close to empty. I saw the dining room down the hall and from the pictures online was excited to see and enjoy it. However, we were seated by bar where two slightly-sauced men were slurring loudly. Happily they left shortly after, and from there the evening picked up. The servers were casual (likely as it was the end of the night) but efficient and friendly. The food was great, my boyfriend and I both had the ribs which were tender and flavourful. We were even lucky enough to catch a rare lightning storm out the lounge windows...so our initially disappointing seating arrangement turned out to be a treat as we may not have been able to see the stunning electrical storm from the mystery dining room. I would definitely return!

We recently spent a weekend in Tofino and luckily stopped at the Schooner for dinner. The service & food were incredible. Thank you to Sean for making our weekend getaway fantastic by recommending 2 AMAZING beaches to visit. We will definitely be back
