We ended up here quite by accident on our first night in Tofino. Was it ever a happy accident! It's one of the few restaurants actually overlooking the ocean, so we had a lovely view. We had a late dinner and the atmosphere was not what you'd expect when you hear it's at the Best Western. Candlelight, cocktails and excellent... More

The location was spectacular. We were seated promptly but the service was slow. The food was mediocre on the whole, the exception being the special: curried Prawn linguini. It was wonderful but a tad sweet for my liking. Our steak was too overdone and the rest of the food in that dish was bland, which was a shame, because the... More

Our resort did not have a restaurant on site and we wanted a cooked breakfast with a view so we settled on the Beachfront Bistro at the Tin Wis Resort. Service was good and the food was your average breakfast fare and well cooked. We appreciated the First Nations artwork and music while we dined as well and a walk... More

The West Coast Smoked Salmon was excellent and the seafood pasta that my wife had was also very good. View of the ocean was a bonus.

The restaurant is very convenient if you are staying at BW Tin Wis, but overall we weren't impressed with the food. Service and winew were fine, but our steak seemed smaller than the 6 oz promised, was overlooked and chewy. Better food and atmosphere can be found in Tofino

Had breakfast here during our weekend stay but only once. Overpriced and over cooked egg dishes were not something we wanted to have again. Beautiful view and good service unfortunately don't redeem the unpleasant food.

Beachfront Bistro is located in the Tin Wis Best Western on Mackenzie Beach so it has an AMAZING view. The resto patio looks like it would be awesome on a nicer and warmer day to enjoy a drink and apps. Staff at this resto are exactly what make dining out a great experience: friendly, smiley, attentive but don't hover and... More

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.
