Good choice of menu with something for everyone. Good sized portions so you wont leave being hungry either. All LOCAL... More

We recently spent a day in Tofino as a treat for our anniversary. We wanted to have a great dinner and this place did not disappoint. Right on the main drag into town for easy access. There is a peek-a-boo ocean view across the street. Love the west coast decor and the beautiful wood inside and out. The service was... More

We had a great dinner at Shelter. We ate upstairs under the gorgeous wood ceiling. The only complaint is the lighting once the sun is down. It was quiet dark, my dad had a hard time reading he menu without 3 candles in front of him. We go back every time we visit Tofino. Best spot in the house..is on... More

The atmosphere is fun and friendly, upbeat! We all enjoyed our food, fresh and west coast inspired. The prices are fare and the patio is big and beautiful but maybe a few umbrellas are needed in the hot sun

We always go here when we are in town. The food, service and atmosphere is really great! Go early for dinner as it's usually packed, especially during long weekends.

Shelter was a nice place to have dinner and try some of the seafood Tofino has to offer. My girlfriend and I shared the Oyster's, Tuna Stack, and Seafood Linguini and they were all quite good though a bit expensive. Service was ok, may have been some confusion because there was someone in training shadowing, but wasn't introduced. Wonderful view... More
