We ate here on our final night in Ucluelet. One recommendation I would make is book, book, book, We were lucky and arrived early enough to get a table. The service was friendly and fast, plus we were given time to look through the food and wine menus. When asked for wine recommendations the lady serving us was so knowledgeable... More

I don't even know where to start. From the outside it's cute, inside it's like a time warp directly back to 1995. The 'service' was lack luster and that's being generous.

The unassuming facade belies a super cute interior. The quality of food was also a pleasant surprise. Delightful find on the beautiful west coast of Vancouver Island.

Service was friendly, and our food came in good time. Reservations certainly recommended, as there is limited seating, and it's a popular place. Our meal was absolutely delicious!
