5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Knowing there were many very fine eateries on the west coast of Vancouver Island, it was disappointing to arrive at Uclulet without having a reservation. We stumbled upon Norwoods, seen in a listing as being "quality" and we were blown away by the place. The owner is the chef. He is there and involved and it makes such a difference.... More

We try and go here when we can. It is pricey but worth ever penny! Best meal of my life. The food is so full of flavour.

Had dinner here on the recommendation of a colleague and am glad we did. The food and the service were excellent. Lots of BC wines and craft beer on the menu. We had the pork chop and the halibut, both great!

Very friendly and knowledgable service, one of the best seafood dishes I've ever had. Certainly a must comeback

The drinks were tasty, the appetizer (fish cheeks and tempura asparagus) was good and my husband's pork chop was very good, and the dessert was good. The problem was the duck breast (my entree). It was a little weird - it came with cold mushrooms (why cold?) and some little shrimp rolls in an unpleasant hot and sweet sauce. The... More

Like a lot of others who rated Norwoods, you would not expect this type of dining in Ucluelet. We had the "cheeks and chips" as an appetizer which was great. I loved it. The wife had the Tuna main dish and I had the pork chop dish and both were very very good Service was good but get a reservation.... More

Service was good, food was average, but very small portions. Price was way too high and left hungry after spending $100 for two people with just water to drink. Did not even get bread.

This is a very small restaurant and created a lovely warm cosy atmosphere. The food is simply divine and while it is very much a fine dining experience the portion sizes are very generous. Definitely worth a visit and the best restaurant in Ucluelet.

We were somewhat sceptical at the notion of a fine dining restaurant in Ucluelet, but we were wrong. This is an outstanding place. We chose to have five starters because it was so hard to choose among them and we thought the main courses looked a little heavier and less inventive. The octopus was beautifully smooth and soft, the Moroccan... More

We sat at chefs table so we had the luxury of watching everything being cooked. The pork dish was eye-rollingly good. The halibut dish was sublime. Fantastic wines perfectly matched to each dish. The taster dessert was a hit too! Excellent service and amazing to watch such an amazing team working what looked effortlessly to ensure everyone in the restaurant... More
