Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely awesome sushi, some of the best we have tasted. The menu is extensive with an impressive selection of dishes to suit all pallets, as well as the most comprehensive selection of sake we have seen outside of Japan. The service was exceptional, warm and...friendly and attentive at just the right times. Sitting on the balcony you have an opportunity to sample the fantastic views while eating your food. In comparison to some restaurants in the area the prices are very reasonable. Well worth a visit, would highly recommend.More

Not dog friendly. Called one week prior to confirm that restaurant patio on the water was dog friendly. They confirmed it was. Arrived at the restaurant to be told they changed their rules, it isn't. They did have two tables at the entrance from the...street that we could sit at. That street is under construction. There is dirt, dust and we get to sit facing the sun, no shade. Really choked, we had been there before; never again.More

The food was incredible ! A bit pricey BUT it’s an ocean side experience of fresh sushi ! Their signature roll sounds odd but oh my it was delicious.

We arrived before 4:00 and sat at a picnic table waiting for the restaurant to open. We were sampling a few things we bought while we waited. The owner came out and very rudely told us to leave. We said we were waiting for him...to open and he still told us to leave. Rudest owner ever!! I won’t ever go back or recommend it.More

Worst service I've ever received. We were treated so disrespectfully before even entering the restaurant that we ended up leaving. The owner got mad that we started leaving, and began yelling at us, flailing his arms and insulting us. All in front of other customers....This was a totally insane experience. Save yourself the stress, and skip this place!More

Tried to get a table here at around 5:30 pm because the restaurant opens at 4 pm. Because we were a group of seven this seemed to cause problems even though there were lots of tables free inside the restaurant and at the back where...there are views over the harbour. So unfortunately we had to sit out the front on a picnic table in the Sun which was not ideal. The sushi is good but the service is slow and it is expensive as well.More

Worse service we have ever experienced!! No respect at all in this place. Since we came in the owner had no wish to let us in his restaurant. He screamed and insulted my family with no reason just because we wanted a table outside. He...then grabbed the menu from my hand with no respect at all and kicked us out of his property while he continued insulting us until we got in our car.More

Sushi was world class and so was the view. Our server was amazing but the host / owner was a grump ( nicest explanatory I could come up with) and not just with us . I witnessed him telling a group of 6 that he...wasn’t interested in seating them just for drinks. Excuses like “short staffed “and it would “f@ck things up” . He was blocking the entrance with his whole body talking to this group so we couldn’t leave. No , really saw and heard it myself. This would explain why he asked us rather gruffly if we were “here for sushi” when we walked in. His whole body language and attitude is just not suited to greeting people. Stay away from the front door Ron. Please.More

I have been to Crazy Ron's twice, once in 2009 and again in 2022. It was that memorable that I came back 13 years later. Fantastic food, great service, the owner is a wonderful and quirky character who is very much his own spirit. They...have a roll called Buddha's Dream (or something like that), which has salmon and strawberries, it was honestly the best combination of sweet and savoury. Very impressive quality fish and a great spot to visit while in Tofino.More

Lucky to have visited on a sunny early evening when one could sit on the terrace overlooking the water whilst watching an otter go about his business. Service was seamless and the food to a very high standard. The buzz and lively atmosphere of people...enjoying a good meal with friends / family was only augmented by the proprietor Ron, who is as down to earth and amiable as one can be. Thoroughly enjoyable in all ways.More

I love sushi, I eat disturbing amounts of it whenever I luck out on finding a good place. This is a fun vibe kinda place, the place where a guy who I assume is an owner, walks around and talks to the customers. Staff are...great. Seafood was of the best that I had on my trip. Try the Sake hot. Thank me now or thank me later.More

This gem in the heart of Tofino served the freshest tuna I've ever tasted. Server Jenny was sparkling, service was very fast and the harbour view kept us entertained. Recommended.
