The service and food were beyond expectations, and the whole experience was fantastic. Seriously good food; really cool layout; and spectacular service!

We had an ok but in no way outstanding meal at this cosy, homely restaurant. The vegetarian lasagna was nice, but the seafood pasta a bit to sweet.

I happened across this gem during an off-season stay! Our first dinner we ordered appetizers and entrees each along with a hot beverage. On receiving our bill we perused it under the belief that there had to be an error as the everything was wonderfully prepared with quality ingredients, some of which I didn't expect in a rather distant location....

Crazy or not, as long as Jennifer has been in business, I have become a loyal guest. Was here with my family in August, twice and I came back alone and stayed 3 days in Ucluelet across the street of the "Matterson House" How lucky can one be to have 3 world class restaurants within 100 meters. In the last... More

Supper and the service were wonderful. My tasted their seafood chowder and sampled oysters as well. Fish and chips were my choice for the main course and I truly enjoyed it as well. Well worth a visit if you are in the Ucluelet area.

Ate here twice recently. Once for breakfast, once for dinner. Staff helpful, friendly. Breakfast was eggs bennie for one of us, eggs with smoked salmon for the other. Food prepared well, reasonably priced. Dinner good as well though portions a bit small, prices a bit high? Nice outdoor seating in back. Quiet. Not trendy and that is welcomed at times.... More

Food was a little bland.....I had the seared Halibut which was a little dry tasteless . Considering the price, I expected a more delicious dish.

Great food, good service and worth the time to have a nice relaxed dinner. After an absolutely dismal stay at "the Cabins at terrace beach" this little place certainly lifted our mood about Ucluelet. We would highly recommend this restaurant to all visitors. From the street it seems small but it has plenty of accommodations inside and out. Great deck... More
