Oh how I love this place! By far one of my favorites, the food is divine! The staff, the atmosphere of the whole place, and the food are indescribable, it's a perfect place for a casual meeting with friends or a business meeting.

One person was a little.disappointed... More

After dining at Norwoods several times I still cannot find the right words to describe it. It is truly beyond excellent. The relaxed and casual professionalism of the staff, the atmosphere of the space, and the food that was beyond description on each occasion. The only downside is making yourself order something you didn’t have last time. Anyone who can... More

After various unsolicited recommendations while in BC we booked dinner at Norwoods in Ucluelet. Unpretensious surroundings great atmosphere very friendly staff and superb food. Best meal in our three week Canadian holiday in fact one of our best ever meals ever. The seafood platter to share as a starter was unbelievably good. Thanks for a great experience

We had read great things about Norwoods and we enthusiastically made reservations. They took us 10 minutes early and gave us a nice corner table. The room was a bit warm and muggy and the smell of seafood was pervasive and a bit off-putting. Our server was attentive and paced the meal well, but the food was just ok. Our... More

Norwood's is without a doubt the best food in Ucluelet or Tofino. Sure, it's expensive, but you get what you pay for. The food is excuisite, the ambiance is warm and inviting and the service is top notch. You'd be missing out on the Ukee experience if you don't eat here!

The meal was very good. Except for the oysters. It is a very small place, with only about 15 tables. I would recommend having reservations. The staff was very friendly and polite. It is very expensive but worth it. The goat cheese cheesecake is a must have.

After having had a late and large lunch we went late in the evening for last seating. We had the fresh seafood appie platter for 2. It was outstanding along with the wine pairing. The attention to detail, ambiant quaintness, and keen, friendly server made it all absolutely perfect. Although last in and last out, they didn't rush us or... More
