We were staying at the hotel and was told that there's a 20% discount on breakfast so we decided to eat there. The waitress was attentive and friendly. Food as great. We plan to eat breakfast again tomorrow morning. If you are staying at the Best Western eat your breakfast here.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at this resort, but only ate breakfast in this restaurant. Food was good, but not as hot as we would've preferred and service was slow. However, the kitchen made a terrific boxed lunch.

My wife and I are here for our anniversary. Being foodies we were all set to hit Tofino and check out the popular spots. That is until we checked out this restaurant. Located in the Tin Wis Resort (we rarely eat at hotels) and run by the Tla-O-Qui-Aht First Nation. The menu is enticing offering a nice variety of seafood... More

I have come to the west coast for business often but had never had the pleasure of staying in Tofino - always in Ucluelet. Tonight I am eating dinner at the hotel restaurant and am pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is casual and the menu offers the tastes of the area. I had clams & mussels with bannock...so tasty! Service was... More

We enjoyed our meal. I had the halibut and my friend had the Seafood Pasta. I felt we were a bit rushed but maybe because they were not busy. The view is great. There is a 20% discount for breakfast when you stay onsite but we felt it too pricey for us. The dinner meals were a bit pricey too.... More

My husband, who is a chef himself, and I travelled again to Tofino and decided to stay again at the Tin Wis. This is our third visit here. The lobby is very nice and updated now, unfortunately the restaurant has fallen. My hubby ordered a salad and I had the fish soup. His salad was very nice but my soup... More

This restaurant, found in the Best Western hotel, is delightful! Owned and opeated by Frist Nations, we enjoyed venison stew, bannock, and grilled halibut while having a wonderful ocean and sunset view. I was srprised how busy it was on a Sunday night in lte September so make reservations if you dont want to be disappointed.

Thank barbintoronto
