In those times and places where you want an expensive, high quality dinner, Norwoods is your best bet in Ucluelet. The food is delicious, service was attentive and friendly. We sat at the chef's table which only has room for two so it is perfect for a night out with your SO and for our part we like watching the... More

We loved it so much here that we came back the next evening. We had reservations for both days - it is small and does get very busy. The atmosphere is relaxed (casual dress Code) and the Food some of the best we have eaten during our trip. The recommended wine pairings work beautyfully with the food. The Dessert is... More

I had heard many wonderful things about Norwoods Restaurant and was looking forward to eating there. They definitely lived up to my expectations! It was the best meal I have had in a very long time! The presentation, freshness and services was incredible. I will definitely be back!

At one time, Ucluelet seemed a poor cousin to Tofino in amenities, particularly fine-dining. Norwoods has helped to change that view, as befits numerous reviews before this one. It is on the main road through Ucluelet and is housed in a pleasant but not overly showy building...in other words, you might easily miss the place unless watching carefully for it.... More

We didn't expect to find such a high-standard restaurant in quiet Ucluelet. It lives up to it's reputation as one of the best restaurants in British Columbia. It's quite small so you will need to book.

We manged to get a resrvation here on the second night of our visit to Ucluelet. Well worth waiting for. Chef Norwood was in charcge and we sat at the bar which allowed us to have chats with neighbours as well as having cocktails mixed before us. We had a most splendid meal. The wine list is mouth watering.

We sat at the chef's table and had the most incredible meal ever. The kitchen has a "zen like" calm to it and the chefs were wonderful to watch at work. The food was fresh, flavoured to perfection and sumptuous to eat. The suggested wine pairings were impeccable and we were subsequently transported to food heaven from start to finish.

Richard Norwood is a master in the kitchen. Dishes are artful and scrumptious, prepared with every consideration for taste, texture and beauty. Pricey, but worth it. Very attentive staff.

There is one of the best fine dining experiences in BC to be found in this charming village. The care for the local produce and the creativity on the menu gave us a gastronomic delight of the first order. Service was charming, specialising in seafood. What a find. Thanks to Austin at Austins Inn for the recommendation. Book in advance... More
