We arrived and ordered as soon as we got there as we were starving. Half an hour later, no food. So we asked how long it would be and we were told only 5 minutes...15 minutes later we got our food, so 45 minutes after ordering! We were told when our order came that it took so long as there...

We drove by Matterson House earlier in the day and made a reservation for 7:00 that evening. Thank goodness we did! This restaurant has a great history which you can read about in the menu. It's in an old house that has been used for many purposed for about 100 years or more. There are enough tables to keep the... More

This place was fabulous. We had breakfast here and it tasted like home cooked food. Even the bread must have been home made, and we got lotsa food! Will definitely be coming back again.

Someone was kind enough to post part of the menu online but my husband said there was actually a much larger menu than posted. We ordered the monster burger and house salad and both kinds of their chowders. The prices are pretty reasonable. We got a monster of a burger all right! It was huge and delicious. The chowders were... More

This restaurant is a very pretty place in Ucluelet. It has a really nice deck in the back that is also very nice. The menu is quite varied with a wide variety of fare. The wine list isn't bad, with several local BC wines. I'm a bit of a wine snob, but we had a local Riesling that was surprisingly... More

Four of us had dinner at the restaurant. The staff was very nice and the room is quite cute. Unfortunately, the dinner did not match. I had the chicken peanut sauce dish and it was no edible. The sauce was basically straight peanut butter with a bit of coconut tossed in. It came with a baked potato which made no... More

Enjoyed every dish. Service was excellent. Price was very reasonable. We could not have been more satisfied. The menu does not reach for the unusual or eclectic. They offer a nice assortment of standard American/Canadian fare. They know how to prepare the food in a very tasty and attractive manner. My wife and I were in town celebrating our wedding... More

We ate here in June, 2016 and were very impressed. We ate the special (pasta) and had a few beers and banana cream pie. Easily it is the best restaurant in the area and was not too pricey. The restaurant is small but very popular

A place to add some civility to your mealtime. I had the prawn and scallop dinner which was enhanced with wild rice mixed into the white rice. Very yummy! a cold glass of Pinot Grigio rounded out dinner. Served with efficiency and a bit of standoffishness which was a downer but tolerable because you expect a bit of haughtiness in... More
