The People

Chef/Owner: Lisa Ahier

About Sobo

Fresh food from here and there.

SoBo was started in a well-equipped purple catering truck to rave reviews from locals. News of the Ahiers’ fresh and amazing food soon reached visitors and Lisa and Artie were blown away when they were named one of the top 10 Canadian restaurants in En Route magazine in their opening year, 2003.

The awards and accolades have continued, along with SoBo’s evolution. In 2007 the Ahiers moved SoBo from the truck into the upscale Conradi Building on Neill St. in Tofino. Their new location has allowed the popular restaurant to take on another incarnation – as the new dinner hotspot in town.

SoBo is proud to showcase BC’s finest products. The same fresh and amazing offerings that SoBo’s reputation was built on are still available, as are take-away fresh frozen soups and wood-fired pizzas from an outdoor pizza oven.

The Ahier family continues to realize their dream of pursuing the craft they love surrounded by wilderness and abundant wildlife in the welcoming community of Tofino.
