This eclectic seafood restaurant has served great food for a generation in an historic old building with a great view of Clayoquot Sound . Try their Titanic Caesars, not a drink, but a meal..see pic. Fish dishes are their forte (halibut) but the Crab was superb and the desserts decadent (try the Love Cup). The atmosphere is open and friendly... More

First of all, I have to say that our service was unbelievable. We had a male server, can't remember his name... but he made excellent suggestions! We had the Black Cod, which our server said was his favourite. It's smoked and then poached and unbelievable. Texture and flavor were just perfect. Also had the salmon and salmon pasta! It was...

We ate here our last night in Tofino, and got the crab legs. They were huge and fresh, and nothing like I have ever had before. The waitress was so sweet and the drinks were strong and reasonably priced.

On a cold, snowy night, this was our choice to farewell Tofino. Welcomed and well seated by the friendly, bantering Justin, we were assisted with the menu, deciding on the signature Admiral's Platter, an excellent way to experience a range of seafood. Creatively presented, we enjoyed our dinner of seafood not usually available in Australia. Desserts were also enjoyable. It... More

Food was great but a little on the pricier side, definitely a special occasion type of dinner. The visit is worth it just for the service alone. The staff are friendly and courteous. Had a great time.

Very good service, very good food, a wonderful view on the port and one of the place that serve quite late -that is 9 PM. The problem is the price which is high IMO.
