Quaint little place to eat by the marina - location is great for those in town without a car. The food is fresh and good sized portions but is pricey like everything in town. Only real complaint is the staff was slow to get our drinks, order, check, etc. and we had to hunt someone down for anything we needed. Our waitress seemed in a frantic but it's a small place and didn't seem like it was packed.

Although the food is good and the service attentive, the highlight of this place is to enjoy your dinner out of doors on the floating patio across from the fishing boats. A great experience to sip your beer with a provided blanket on your legs to keep you warm and watch the world go by. Wonderful!

My husband and I decided to share everything. We started with the salad and goat cheese. Unusual but for $14 would pass on this. The garlic shrimp were very good but a disappointment as smaller than I had hoped. Mostly sandwiches on the menu so we shared a full rack of ribs..perfect choice. They were fall apart tender and perfectly seasoned. This came with a side caesar salad which in hindsight I would do instead of the goat cheese. Hubby had a beer and I had a glass of wine. For dessert we shared the ice cream fudge baileys concoction that was awesome. Although $9 I would go back just for the dessert. Total bill for the above all shared $78. Maybe a little pricey but everything is pricey in Ucluelet. The service was top of the line. Our server Caroline was very attentive from start to finish.

The atmosphere VERY rustic but relaxing and comfortable. The entrance is down a long steep ramp to the water so be careful if you have difficulty with steep ramps

The food was fabulous and price was very reasonable. Located right 'on' the water. Outside patio provides blankets for your legs on those cool evenings if you want to stay outside to watch the boats come and go - loved it there!

Floating restaurant on the harbour. Enjoyed the relaxed West Coast experience. Crab cakes were "yummy" and the goats cheese salad was to die for. All that plus an ice cold beer or two. Lovely evening.
