The brunch menu is absolutely amazing, and it's the best time to enjoy the views throughout your whole meal! Even if you don't have a window table, the views throughout the whole dining area are wonderful.

The Point states all seats have a view! I have to disagree!!! We were at a rectangular table for six with 3 facing a half wall with their backs to the view. A definite welcome would be to have round tables. The Halibut dinner did...More

Visited with inlaws...which was enjoyable. Had a fantastic dinner, and some nice wines. Very nice staff, and love the entrance of the resort and the carvings.

This is a place you want to go and eat in restaurant or stop for a beverage in bar. Both have the same view overlooking the ocean. Food presentation was great however the food was tasty but not the best I had ever had.

The only thing wonderful about this restaurant is the view. Others who have given this restaurant good reviews are not seasoned travelers or have no taste buds I travel all over the world and judge the food by its quality, taste and invention of flavor....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.

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.
