We had shrimp and scallop pasta and I've never in my life seen smaller shrimp or smaller scallops. The chowder is less than average and I can't recommend the apple crumble terrible! Also over priced.

This was our first trip to Ucluelet and we found many restaurants closed on Thursday evenings. We came across this little house on the main Street called MATTERSON. We made a reservation and when we arrived we walked into a lovely little restaurant. The hostess/server...More

Let me know if the website was not helpful in making a reservation. You will need one at this time of year if you want to count on a particular dining time. Enjoy
