Full portions of spectacular food. Extremely and consistently a superb dining experience. Had the lamb dinner and a mushroom goat cheese pizza. The pizza was mind blowing with it's thin, perfectly crispy crust and bold ballanced flavours. The lamb... To die for. Best lamb we've...More

Here for Lunch we had the amazing fish tacos and shared the mushroom and white pizzas, the rest of the group also had miso soup and the smoked fish chowder - everything was fantastic - will certainly be back for dinner.

I really wanted to LOVE this place again. Location is great, staff is great as always but it just was not very good. I've been wowed, so something has changed. Each dish we had just wasn't the old Sobo. Hoping things change back

We only had lunch here but had the best mussels I have had anywhere. Went back a second day and they just as good. I would recommend this small restaurant in Tofino. Very friendly staff.

They use only local, fresh and healthy ingredients, their portions and flavours are big, the service is friendly, the decor is an art lovers delight, and the prices are reasonable.
