This restaurant came highly recommended to us and we weren't disappointed. The food was superb, the staff knowledgeable and friendly and the view over Chesterman Beach incredible. Worth every penny!

The view is second to none. The staff is excellent and the decor and atmosphere are really superb. The food is pretty good. It's very pricey.

This is definitely the best view of any restaurant I've been to. The windows are huge and it's right over the beach so you can gaze out over the ocean and watch the sun set as you eat. We had breakfast and dinner here and...More

I really wanted to eat at The Pointe because I had seen photos online of the restaurant and thought the views looked stunning. We weren't staying at the Inn, but we popped in for breakfast since that seemed the most vegetarian friendly. We arrived around...More

Get a table by the large semi circular window and watch the waves crashing onto the rocks a few meters away, watch the sun go down and enjoy the great food and service and for those who can afford it The Pointe Restaurant is a...More

Had sunset drinks and dessert. Extensive wine and cocktail list. Took a look at the menu and was impressed with their Canada 150 menu, which features a 6-course meal with optional wine pairing. Local seasonal produce and seafood, plus menu changes weekly.

We enjoyed drinks on the couches one evening, and lunch another day on a wet, cool day. We were lucky to get a table at the window and enjoy the view of the beach and crashing waves. Beautiful room with wood carvings and a copper...More

No, but you probably wouldn't feel comfortable in such a nice restaurant if you weren't dressed formally.

Although items are not marked as such on the menu, the waiters are seriously trained and can advise and the chef will make substitutions.

Description
Surveying the panoramic vistas from the westernmost point of Tofino’s idyllic Chesterman Beach, The Pointe Restaurant’s Refined West Coast cuisine and attentive service come gift-wrapped with 240 degree views of the Pacific Ocean, surrounding islands and wildlife. Much of the fresh seafood is fished from the very waters overlooked by The Pointe, and a longstanding focus on locally sourced, high quality ingredients is evident. Dinner is offered on a seasonal à la carte menu, but for the best of the best, try Executive Chef Warren Barr's weekly tasting menu; Daily brunch is a true treat. Out of the ordinary desserts reflect an innovative Pastry program where most everything - from bread to butter to scrumptious chocolate croissants are housemade. An extensive wine list, recognized yearly by Wine Spectator magazine, showcases BC’s finest selections with a broad range of international bottlings. Over 100 Scotch Whiskies and a creative cocktail menu can be savoured in the comfortable On the Rocks Lounge. A true taste of Rustic Elegance On Nature’s Edge - and the West Coast’s best views - are on the menu at The Pointe Restaurant and On the Rocks Lounge.
