Do yourself a favor, give this place a go, it is absolutely first rate.
I must admit to some initial trepidation when reading a few of the negative reviews however I am exceedingly glad we discounted them. This is a great restaurant. (It would want to be for the price - but it does deliver.) Some people have made comments like "bit pricey for BC West Coast!" I say who cares where it is?!! I am happy to pay for top quality food & service be it in Sydney, New York or in Ukee. Quality of this type costs. ( However of course if things go awry & fair expectations aren't met then the price becomes an issue & fair enough too. Top quality price demands top quality delivery.) We had a really excellent experience. The Restaurant's interior is subtle, modern & elegantly unpretentious.
The service was of the highest order. I really enjoy it when a waiter is professional, efficient, knowledgeable & most importantly approachable. I get a bit tired of the aloof, snobbery some high priced establishments affect. The head man on the night we were at Norwoods was on top of his game. The chefs in this place really know their stuff, they were obviously well prepared, never flustered & delivered excellence through each of our 3 courses.
My mussel & curry appetizer was just delicious. A great taste & a nice portion. My wife's scallops were just amazing (though I would have liked to see three in her plate instead of two- truly my only whinge.) My wife had the entree tuna- wonderful & I had the Halibut - fabulous risotto. I had a chocolate Torte & my wife had a baked Goats Cheese Cheesecake - scrumptious.
The restaurant is on the main street of Ucluelet & there is no "view". Not a problem as the magic happens on the plates not out the windows.
We walked away very satisfied. Don't expect to walk away stuffed to the gills, that's not the point. This food is art not an exercise in famine busting. We certainly did not leave hungry. Top marks Norwoods, if I come back this way you will be on my list of must do's.
