Canada’s Best New Restaurant!

We’re so honoured to be named Air Canada enRoute’s 2014 Canada’s Best New Restaurant!

Food journalist Andrew Braithwaite took a month-long culinary tour across Canada and captured our spirit in his description of his visit: “After a long day of surfing on the extreme west coast of Vancouver Island, where rainforest meets ocean, you stumble up a flight of stairs and into a soaring cedar-clad room above a surf shop,” says Andrew. “You’re greeted by a prowling wolf assembled from driftwood – but not a lick of fog in the house tonight – and Etta James howling on the stereo. It’s the kind of place that stops you in your tracks.

“You gaze up at the giant starburst built from two dozen surfboards busted by local pros,” says Andrew. “Follow that star, you feel a sudden urge to tell everyone you know, as far west as you can go. You’ll find yourself in remarkable company.”

We want to thank the community of Tofino, including our local suppliers, for their ongoing support. It’s easy to find inspiration living in such an amazing part of the country and it feels great to help put Tofino on the map as a culinary destination.
