Reviewed 24 August 2014

Big Daddy's has a great selection of very reasonably priced, delicious food.
It made for the perfect pit-stop and lunch break on our day in Tofino - I would definitely go again!

“Nice lunch”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Wanted a lunch bite to eat whilst in Tofino, without having too much.
We thought the kids choices and menu sizes were good (even for teenagers). The battered fish and prawns were well done and the cod taco tasty.

“great fish, overpriced”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Fish and chips and a milkshake - both good and fast but the price is steep, particularly for a lunch and the portions are small for dinner if you have a teenager.

“Prawn tacos, amazing”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Just arriving after a day of driving, we were looking for something quick and delicious and this place fit the bill. Lots for landlubbers and seafood lovers too! Excellent prawn tack, a little cilantro, great sauce, not your ordinary taco. Highly recommend.
