My wife and I went there on our honeymoon and loved it. The menu offers few choices but the food is some of the best I've tasted. I'm usually a steak guy but stepped out of my comfort zone and ordered Tuna, and am I sure glad I did. If you are planning a special night in Ukee, no other... read more

We managed to dine with them on the only evening we were able to, with their dining schedule. We almost missed the opportunity because it was a late dinner with our 95 year old mother. I'm so glad we made it! We were seated at a table where we could view the open kitchen and the chefs preparing each dish... More

We had to cancel our resv at Wickinnish Inn do to our time slot, but we ended up a winner. We sat at the bar and were treated like royalty by our bar tender who did not leave us a stray. We dined on the octopus (wow) - the fish of the day and had amazing wine and cocktails (highly... More

First off, make reservations! We came here in May, when most of the rest of the town was very quiet. But here, all the tables were full, for two sittings. And deservedly so. The appetizer we had, the Octopus, was very tender, not chewy as you might get elsewhere. We had the Pork and the Beef tenderloin for meals. Both... More

Best experience of my life!!!! We ate at the chef's table and to a foodie like me this was heaven. Got to talk and interact with the chefs and watch all the meals being prepared. Very good meal and very cool experience.

So much palate and paring knowledge from such a young chef. Service was in the top 5% of restaurants my partner and I have visited around Europe, in particular. Go, eat, enjoy. Do over. During the same stay in Ucluelet, BC. Beats every Tofino restaurant - but the Wolf in the Fog was a VERY close second

An inviting spot in the heart of Ucluelet with an innovative and locally sourced menu, warm and genuine service, and a great menu for anyone who loves food.

The food was very good and beautifully presented. The portion sizes were smaller, so we had appetizers, mains and deserts and were not stuffed. It was expensive.

We had dinner here while visiting Ucluelet in April. Appetizers did not impress, but main course was amazing. Unfortunately we could not stay for dessert as our friend had fallen ill (NOT because of anything she ate at all), so we had to leave. Will definitely come back to have the full experience next time I am in the area.

Freshest & tastiest seafood, wonderful service. Pricey but well worth it. Closed Wed & Thurs; seems that the restaurants in Ukee take turns with their regular evenings closed so that there are always multiple options for dining. Cozy ambience.
