We choose Hanks from the reviews on TripAdvisor. The ambience was great. The food was great although the chef is a little chilli happy and it would have been nice to have been told about the spiciness of the dishes without having to find out the other way. Overall, give it a try!

Hank's was my favourite dinner while in Ucluelet-Tofino. I loved the combination of really beautifully prepared food in a casual and absolutely non-pretentious atmosphere. Both our salmon and ling cod main dishes were fabulous, and we managed to squeeze in a delicious key lime pie. While I enjoyed my dinners at Norwoods and Fetch, I put Hank's a notch above—taste, serving size, presentation, and service were all spot on, and in my opinion, better value. It may not be the perfect spot if you're looking for something romantic, quiet, or with a view, but for outstanding food in casual comfort, Hank's is the place!

Had an oppy to try all the top restaurants and this was the best in Ucluelet and perhaps tofino as well. Laid back but high quality with good service. We liked norwood's but it was a good but less reflective of the area (more like a high end Vancouver restaurant). Go on Wednesday which is the day after they are closed and make a run for local ingredients. The oysters, seafood pasta, brisket and Dungeness crab risotto balls were all very good. The wine list was decent and vancouver area focused. Best bet with wish is pinot blanc and for meat the pinot noir as these wines are better for vancouver areas shorter season. overall the most satisfying dinner we had on our trip to Ucluelet/tofino.

Everything was great! Can be a little crowded and noisy, but that's ok since the food is wonderful. And the Ownder-chef is really nice!

Was recommended by one of our kayak guides. Not that appealing from the outside, but the food variety, quality and quantity was very good and represented good value. Wish we had discovered it when we first arrived in Ucluelet and we would have gone back several times.
