We read many wonderful reviews and were excited to visit this restaurant. However, we found that although the service was good and attentive, the food was mediocre. Our fish lacked flavor and was dry, also, the portions were pretty small. This would not be a big deal if the restaurant did not have such high prices and wasn't so acclaimed.... More

Probably one of the best meals both my wife and I have had in a long,long time. We had the California Seafood sampler which was outstanding. The octopus, oysters, smoked salmon and the marinated mussels were our favorites. I had the off the menu Rack of Lamb and my wife had the Pork Chops. Both were very healthy portions and... More

Being from Toronto we are used to chef menus with wine parings however we were truly surprised to find such a great restaurant in Ucluelet. As good as any restaurant I have been to, except for Alo! Great service, nice selections and cozy ambience. Have suggested to friends already with positive comments

We ate so much good food on our visit to Tofino & Ucluelet, but our dinner at Norwoods stands out as one of the best. Creative, delicious food and fantastic service. Our server Tara was awesome! She gave us lots of recommendations of places to check out, and we found out she created the drink we ordered which was truly... More

Excellent service and food! It has a cafe atmosphere and a fine dining menu so you don't feel like lingering too long but the food experience is really nice.

We ate here during our week long stay in Ucluelet and we were really pleased that we did. The restaurant is tiny but lovely and it was great to see the chefs at work. You will need to book in advance to be guaranteed a table or alternatively you can take a chance and try and get a seat at... More

This is a very small restaurant and its amazing what they do in their tiny open kitchen. Don't expect a comfortable romantic table or a quiet ambiance, though. The prices also seem a bit steep for what you get. They don't even offer diners bread before or during their dinner. If in Ucluelet again, I think I'd save my money... More

This is a high-end restaurant with excellent food and service. We had the seafood appetizer sampler which is fantastic, and prosciutto wrapped halibut which was also delish. Make this your splurge night restaurant when in Ucluelet.

High end dining in Ucluelet. Scoring a 4 comparing to all restaurants where you have to pay over $100 per. All elements excellent but missed the mark ever so slightly in all of food, service and environment. Timing off. Overall pleasant experience. Give it a try and tell me if its worth another try!
