Dinner

Surveying the panoramic vistas from the westernmost point of Tofino’s idyllic Chesterman Beach, The Pointe Restaurant’s inspired 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 and Restaurant Chef David Sider's weekly tasting menu, paired with a selection of wines, showcasing BC’s finest selections with a broad range of international bottlings. Out of the ordinary desserts reflect an innovative Pastry program where almost everything - from bread to butter to scrumptious chocolate croissants - is housemade.

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. Please note our evening restaurant clothing standard is smart-casual

Executive Chef Warren Barr is committed to providing you with the freshest, locally sourced ingredients possible. As such specific items in each menu selection may change based on availability. Although updated on a regular basis, onsite menus may show slight variations from the below.
