You need to make reservations and you will receive excellent service as a result. We started with the chef's special drink "Penicillin" and then went onto the seafood appetitizer, one had the the halibut and anothe the duck breast. All very delicious with lots of local veg. The wine pairing were delicious with both. Then the finale - blueberry fruit... More

You step out of downtown, homey Ucluelet and into a chic restaurant that would be found in downtown San Francisco or New York. Norwood staff was exceptional, the food was exquisite. Future vacations to Ucluelet will always include dinner at Norwoods!

The food, drinks and service were very good. The steak was excellent however the halibut was overcooked. The high tables and chairs were super uncomfortable and don't go well with a formal meal. Overall enjoyed it but probably would not return.

We came to Ucluelet to celebrate our anniversary dinner, and picked Norwoods as our special dinner out. And a great choice it turned out to be! It's always nice when you arrive at a nice restaurant, to be greeted by the owner, and be shown to the table by him personally. It really adds a nice touch. We started with... More

Delicious....best clams of my life! Service was excellent, presentation, taste and ambience superb. The jambalaya was a surprise to see on the menu, but so glad we ordered it as it was spicy and filled with sea food. Excellent. Make reservations though as it fills up quickly.

This is one of the best dinner we had while visiting the West Coast of Vancouver Islands. It was located on the main road in Ucluelet. Parking is off street and there is no difficulty in finding a spot nearby the restaurant. The restaurant is small with only a few tables. When we entered the restaurant, we were greeted by... More

We were lucky to get a table, and we were soo satisfied. Great appetizer, wonderful main dishes, #1 service. Plates are big, but the food on it is small but so tasty. I wish i can visit again. Some dishes were a piece of art

A MUST on Vancouver Island, if you are on the west coast. If you are not on the west coast, find a reason to get there! Menue, wine list, service, the food itself, everything was exceptional and as it was the last day on Vancouver Island before going home to Germany, it was also our farewell dinner. We shared the...

BEST place to eat in Ucluelet by far. Pricey but so worth it for a special evening. Go for all the trimmings. Sampler appetizer is so yummy. I should have had that and a salad. Steak was delicious and veggies were fabulous. Have the "Goodnight" after dinner drink it is heavenly
