We stayed on Vancouver Island for about 4 days and this was the best restaurant we went to on the island. It could be a little hard to find with GPS (somehow ours didn't recognize the address), but do not give up. We went there for a brunch and everything we ordered (cod burger, Caesar salad, halibut quesadillas, chocolate mousse,... More

We got to visit with the owner, Jennifer Clark, who also was our server!! This is a very quaint little place we felt lucky to be able to be seated without reservations!! This time of year, a lot of the eateries are closed. The menu was diverse and affordable. The company was fantastic! Jennifer gave us great advice for touring... More

We ordered a grilled ham and cheese sandwich, and a clubhouse sandwich. Portions are generous, salad was fresh. OK, sandwiches like this are pretty hard to get wrong, but we both enjoyed our food and the service was friendly.

There seems to be mixed reviews for Matterson House restaurant. We came here for the first night of our stay, but they were full at the time. So we booked for the second night and were happy that we did - long weekends are NUTS in Ucluelet and Tofino. Our food was flavourful and plentiful. Even the salads were delicate... More

Mediocre and overpriced. Was recommended by a local and since it was too late we didn't check online reviews.

Had lunch here-recommended by a local. Pretty regular fare food wise. Both our sandwiches came with potato salad (??? In the winter??). that was very yellow. Guess what- tasted way too mustardy. I had oyster burger, came with relish ???? Never had that before on oyster burger. BF had hot Denver sandwich, complete with fresh lettuce???? Ok dining, was hoping... More

We went around 11am to what was described as an old heritage house. Maybe heritage or character isn't how I would describe the interior. It's more like the interior of an old boat that hasn't been maintained for decades. Paint was peeling off the inside metal chairs and the window sills. Menus were curling up at the edge, etc. Poor...

Popped into this delightful restaurant for breakfast and were spoilt for choice. Had the biggest and best omelette ever! Set us up for a good day hiking - didn't need anything till supper time. Great service and quaint setting with outside seating - lovely start to our day.

The restaurant is simple decor, and we were not sure what to expect, I was disappointed at first when we did not see French fries on the menu, but when our sandwiches arrived on homemade bread it was a nice surprise. I had the green salad with a vinaigrette dressing and my husband had the Cesar both hit the spot... More

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
