We called the neighboring Norwood restaurant and left a message. Never got a call back for the 7 of us! Got there! Received a cold shoulder bordering on a racist reception. So we sauntered next door. Glad we did! The reception was warm! Food was...More

We had a great time at Matterson House and would recommend it for sure. The wine menu offers a lot of different choices and the food is just amazing! Great service for a good price.

This had been recommended and hyped as a brilliant place to eat. We had to book beforehand, but were rather disappointed by our average meals.

My wife and I ate this evening at Matterson house. We ordered half liter of pinot grigio and a delicious matterson chicken! The flavour of the crispy almonds over che the chicken combined with a raspberry cream sauce was something I've never eaten! Simply wonderful!

We wanted something light for dinner. Just soup and a salad. Loved the ambiance of the place and the salad was great. But the chowder tasted like it was straight from the can.

Ironically this restaurant is next door to Norwoods (fine dining, 3x price, foodie heaven) but a completely different experience. Inside is warm, friendly, homely with good food (including gluten free). Definitely worth a visit in your time in Ucluelet.
