When we were in Tofino we ate at the WildSide Grill and it was pretty fabulous. ** If you are hungry you may want to get a snack before you look at the pictures. Part of my adventures always involve eating out wherever we stay. It is sort of like immersing yourself in the culture of the area. In Tofino it is ALL about fresh seafood. We walked up to an eclectic group of little shops at the Live to Surf Plaza and discovered the WildSide Grill. We were starving and wanted something yummy and filling after a full day spent beaching. This is a funky little eatery which specializes in freshly caught seafood by commercial fisherman Jeff Mikus, the catch goes directly from the boat to the kitchen where chef Jesse Blake works his magic. The portions are very generous and the food IS excellent. We dined at the grill twice while in Tofino and I was pretty thrilled on both occasions. The dining area is very Tofino-esque, the tables are old wood spools and the rustic shelter is made out of driftwood. It was actually very beautiful and pleasant to sit there taking in the scenery and enjoying great food. I just wish we could have stayed a little longer to try out more of the menu. The folks sitting behind us were raving about their fish tacos, wish I wasn't so full, I would have tried those too! Hmmm I wonder if they deliver to Victoria..... Check out their menu on www.wildsidegrill.com.
