Family of 4 had dinner here and everyone loved their dishes! Octopus was fantastic, smoked salmon great, lamb pizza unique and tasty, appetizers -oyster/cornbread/pickles all wonderful and the desert menu was also great. We have 1 that can not eat gluten or dairy and they have plenty to choose from including awesome chocolate strawberry tart!

Enjoyed fabulous lunch. The 4 of us sampled much of the menu - everything was first rate. Service was friendly; prices reasonable. Recommend the chowder and Thai chicken.

Eclectic menu, and good beer. Modern interior. Very delicious. Try the Polenta Fries - you'll be surprised.

It was a great place to dine in Tofino. The menu was limited but the food was original and delicious. Kids are very welcomed. It's not the place if you want a quiet dining experience. They had a great bakery for dessert or take home.

Such great food. It's the best place to go for a fresh and fabulous meal when you are in Tofino. The chowder is rich and filled with fresh seafood. Fresh cornbread and crispy, crunchy Asian salad will satisfy anyone's taste buds.

Came in here as a last resort after everything was closed on a Sunday night. Very fancy menu - the type where you look at it and think where's the real food. Pizza was nice though and far more normal than the menu would suggest. Service was ok.

Great food. Polenta fries amazing and fish tacos good. Restaurant crowded and overwhelmed servers who did their best but result was glacially slow service hopefully just an aberration.
