The GOODS from The Pointe Restaurant at the Wickaninnish Inn
Tofino, BC | We are honored to be welcoming some special guests to the Inn this week, and hope you can join us for a mouth-watering meal, where east meets west!
October 22nd : Chef Francis Wolf Gourmet Dinner
The two chefs first met at Relais & Chateaux’s Gourmetfest in Carmel, California in 2015. Based on their shared passion for local, fresh ingredients an instant connection was formed and a plan was hatched to combine the bounty of each regions lush culinary offerings into one meal.
This past year Manoir Hovey received the honour of winning the top spot for Canada in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards. Chef Wolf’s culinary style of “Ambitious, terroir-driven Quebec cuisine” was no doubt a large contributing factor in their victory. The evening will begin at 5:30pm, with a gin tasting followed by a six course chefs table gourmet dinner.
Tickets are $140 plus taxes and gratuities. Wine pairings for the meal will be offered at $80 plus taxes and gratuities. Please contact our Special Events team at 250.725.3100 ext. 222 or email specialevents [at] wickinn.com for more information or to reserve your ticket.

About The Pointe Restaurant
Wickaninnish Inn, a Relais & Châteaux property since 1997, overlooks the Pacific Ocean from a rocky point on Vancouver Island’s rugged west coast, near the eclectic town of Tofino and Pacific Rim National Park. Two contemporary cedar buildings, set against a backdrop of ancient rainforest, boast an extensive local art collection (complemented by the neighbouring wood carving shed), and all rooms and suites offer ocean or beach views, gas fireplace, soaker tub and individual balcony. Uncompromising service, including a Clefs d’Or Concierge team, is a standard. The sole resort on Chesterman Beach, Tofino’s longest at 2.5km/1.5mi, the Inn is home to naturally-inspired treatments at its intimate Ancient Cedars Spa and refined West Coast cuisine at award-winning The Pointe Restaurant. 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 Chef Warren Barr’s weekly tasting menu. Daily brunch is a true treat and a favourite with local Tofitians. Out of the ordinary desserts reflect an innovative Pastry program where most everything – from bread to butter to scrumptious chocolate croissants are house made. 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 Wickaninnish Inn and The Pointe Restaurant.
