Ignorant, rude and pompous Unfortunately, from the moment of the guest’s arrival, we knew this was going to be a tough one to get right. Within the first few moments of him being seated there was an air of entitlement, of false authority, of being...More

If you want gourmet food, really good food at a reasonable price, this is it! The halibut dish was exceptional, the service was excellent.

Very good meal and such a pleasant surprise for a small town. Taste and presentation of each dish will rival any high end restaurant anywhere. A must if in the area. Service was impeccable too.

Unexpected and absolutely fantastic experience. Cocktails are inventive and very well executed. The food is absolutely out of this world - appetizer taster with halibut cheviche, oysters, clams and cod tempura - amazing; duck breast with lychee puree - amazing; dessert sample - burned bread...More

Usually they are not opened at Christmas. Try calling them after 4 most days except wed/thurs, 250-726-7001. Good idea to email or call Tourism Tofino and Tourism Ucluelet for lists of restaurants open at Christmas. Many... More
