The food was absolutely delicious and no complaints about the service. The view was spectacular - looked out the window and saw my first eagle just chilling on the rooftop of a building by the water.

We were recommended this lovely restaurant in Tofino. We had the most delicious seafood, desserts and wine. Sitting outside under the warmth of heaters with the view of the mountains and a beautiful sunset. Go. It was gorgeous. Staff delightful too.

I did not specifically notice, but according to the 'casual menu' there are salad options. However, this is primarily a seafood and steak restaurant, so you might want to contact the restaurant directly to see if you can... More
