This place was the beat out of all places we ate. The wait staff was attentive, the food was top quality. I had pork chop which is to die for. My boyfriend's black cod was a little too blackend on the skin. He didn't like as much. but nonetheless, the food is high quality.

My husband and I ate at Norwoods for his 40th birthday celebration and we were very happy with our choice. The dishes were delicious and we recommend sharing several dishes so you can get the full experience.

Richard, the owner can whip up the very tastiest of fine dining entrees and appetizers. The wine list is first class and the food exceptional.

Most of us travel to Ucluelet to escape the hustle and bustle. We go to enjoy the beautiful scenery, breathe the fresh ocean air, and watch the waves crash on the shore while walking the world-class Wild Pacific Trail. Imagine all of this with the unexpected bonus of a fine dining restaurant with a laid-back feel. Norwoods is an excellent... More

Deserves its fine reputation for seafood and delicate tastes. Fine dining in Ucluelet. Small so you need to book in advance

We loved our meal at Norwoods - so much so that we returned the next day. The food is perfectly prepared and presented and the staff are friendly and helpful. It is by far the best place in Ucluelet - and Tofino too.

Uclulet is a small town, and we expected a small town's selection when it came to restaurants. What a shock when we went to Norwoods. The chef is a graduate of the George Brown College Cullinary Institute, has studied and worked in Europe, and the food is simply amazing. Everything was good, but the star of the night was the...

The restaurant was small, but not intimate. The seating was limited with an open kitchen. My wife and I were greeted at the door by the owner, Richard Norwood. There seemed to be an extraordinary number of Staff. Our expectations were high. We both had halibut rolled in prosciutto followed by a selection of 5 small desert samples. Wine selection... More

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at Norwood's when visiting Ucluelet for the weekend recently. The restaurant is small, and cozy, with intimate seating, the "wine bar" or you can sit at the bar overlooking the chef's at work. We started with 2 different martinis, neither of which we cared for, unfortunately, but the sourdough bread with olive... More

We had a fabulous meal here. Imaginative cooking, great wine list and lots of 'theatre' with the open kitchen. The staff were charming and attentive without being overbearing. Make sure you book well in advance, as we found it quite difficult to get a table.

Thank Grogsblossom
