This was right by our motel. The patio was full, so ate inside. The food was very good, good service. Will definitely go again. Cute place.

Although the food offered was fantastic, we were disappointed that the menu had very few fish/seafood items. As it is literally in the harbour, we had expected more of these.

Hi Mandy, thank you for visiting us. We do add more seafoods as they become available. As of your visit the 6 different seafoods and the variations of prep/flavours only allow us about 12 among those. We hope you had a great time in Ucluelet.! More

We found this gem by accident and absolutely loved it. The staff were attentive and friendly. The vegetarian burger is one of the best I've ever eaten. The location on the water with the view of the full moon was incredible. Definitely recommend it and will go back.

We went late with no reservations. The inside section was full and the only available table was outside on the dock deck. We reluctantly accepted but were not disappointed. The waitress who was attentive, funny and engaging, offered blankets. The ribs were excellent. We did not regret the decision to stay.

The location has a great view; it is right on the water. Our server was extremely friendly and helpful. The food was very good and reasonably priced for that location. We ordered the fried dickles to start then the Thai salad and the chicken caesar wrap. You get lots of do of food with your order so enough for lunch... More

I loved this restaurant. As an excellent home cook, I'm often disappointed with restaurant food. But not here. The food was simply prepared, not at all fussy, very fresh, and it tasted great. The prawns in garlic sauce were super fresh, just the right amount of garlic and fresh parsley to flavor, but not overpower. Perfectly cooked. I also had... More

This is a bit off the wall as it is a floating restaurant. But the food was quite good. We find it is difficult to find fish and chips in which the breading is light and not greasy. This qualifies. Good cold slaw and potato wedges. The kitchen is open air and you are staring at the Ucluelet fishing fleet.... More

This place is quirky and very casual. We enjoyed the best garlic prawns ever and that's saying something. We also had ribs which melted off the bone, excellent, as were the accompanying Caesar and garlic bread. They don't have a printed drinks list as the selection, the night we were there, was limited to 2 beer and a red and... More

Food was good. The atmosphere is lively. Over half of the seating is outdoors. Even with blankets supplied by the restaurant it was chilly in late June. They need space heaters. I had the ribs. Perfectly cooked. My wife had the veggie burger. She thought it was very tasty. Menu is limited. Prices are reasonable. Waitresses do a good job.... More
