Best food in the harbour.

We arrived in Ucluelet, hungry and thirsty after a long trip from Kamloops. The FloatHouse was full but we were still welcomed in and offered a seat at the bar while a table became available. We ended up eating right there at the waters edge. Cold beer, great burgers steaks and cocktails as well... read more

We wandered in here late one afternoon for a beer, primarily because of its location. The staff were very friendly and helpful and although their beer selection was very limited we stayed for dinner as well. Good pub style food and lovely atmosphere.

We went there for dinner and were the first ones so we got a good seat inside. The staff was very friendly and the food was really good. I ordered the pasta with chicken and tomato cream sauce and it was the best I've had in a long time. Unfortunately, it was a little chilly outside and seating inside is... More

We ate outside on a cold, damp September evening but loved it! Our waitress brought warm blankets and candles and steaming bowls of grilled prawn fettuccine. Delicious food right on the water. Go early if you want to sit inside but there's no view there.

This was a great find thanks to Motel receptionist. Lovely, friendly staff and fantastic food - right on the water - a little cold and late to eat on the outside deck but inside was still relaxed and comfortable and we were not rushed even though late eating for Canadians

We got there late so we were the last customers for the night. This is one of these places that I would rate as good. It's maybe a bit better than average but I wouldn't quite rate it very good. Everything was ok, the food, the service and the price so really no complaints and it was quite an enjoyable... More

Dined here with friends and had a great meal. The ribs were superb. Reasonably priced and solid service made it an enjoyable occasion. Worth a visit for sure.

In the late afternoon there is still some sunshone on the deck. We went there twice to relax and drink a beer after spending time outside at the beach or kayaking. Food was great (fish tacos, prawns, burgers were fine!). We enjoyed it a lot and also liked the service. Thanks!
