“Major Disappointment - Foodies beware.”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

This place is in desperate need of a complete overhaul. The bathrooms were atrocious, and the place looked like it was falling apart. Despite this fact we attempted to eat there because the overall reviews seemed good. I had the toasted tomato sandwich with salad. I had one bite and spit it out, it was smothered in some sort of miracle whip like sauce. When the waitress came by I asked her to take it away and her only response was "Would you like it wrapped up". We would never go back. Not only did we have to pay for a meal we couldn't eat, we we're given no apologies for the poor food and poor service.

“nice little restaurant”
Reviewed 16 November 2011

We had dinner here one night during our stay in Ucluelet. The restaurant is in an old restored house that has nice character. The bathrooms were a bit iffy as far as cleanliness. The food was ok/good. I would say it was pretty average.
