Absolutely Fantastic

We have dined at excellent restaurants all over the world, and Norwoods easily made it into our "Top 5" of all time, perhaps even "Top 3". Reservations were easily made and we appreciated the personal touch of a return phone call from the owner when we had to make a slight change. Upon arriving... read more

Norwoods was so highly recommended to us, we expected something really memorable. The outside of the restaurant is very plain and unassuming (we probably would have driven right by if we had not been told how wonderful it was). The windows are frosted, so you cannot see in (or out). It is quite small inside and has a simple, modern... More

Second time here and we are never disappointed. The service is impeccable and the food is so creative and delicious and plated beautifully. It is on the expensive side, but if you're looking for a culinary experience this is it. The menu at this restaurant caters to meet eaters, but vegetarians never fear they will whip something up just for... More

Based on the server's recommendation, I tried the Black Cod. It was the most delicious seafood dish I've ever had! Great start to a lovely Valentine's Day evening with my hubby :)

Food was great. A unique atmosphere with the chefs preparing your meal right in front of you. Waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the food and the wines they serve.

They absolutely know what they are doing at this restaurant. Everything is great - open kitchen and very helpful staff. Bravo. We went twice in three days.

My wife and I go to Norwoods at least once (usually twice) whenever we are in Ucluelet. This trip was no exception and we had two wonderful dinners there. The food is excellent, as good as you will find anywhere. Service is highly professional, friendly but not intrusive. It is a great little restaurant and adds a lot to any... More

Whie on our honeymoon in Ucluelet, Claire and I were able to have dinner at Norwoods. This was a great meal, beautifully presented, and a dining experience. From outstanding customer service the moment we walked in the door (without reservations, but well handled) to a nicely set up intimate dining area, a great chat with the the chefs as they... More
