About Pluvio restaurant + rooms

Pluvio restaurant + rooms offers a unique dining experience celebrating the best local products and natural elements of Vancouver Island. Chef Warren Barr and the team offer creative and inspired Canadian cuisine, focusing on seasonal and wild ingredients foraged from the Ucluelet forests and coastline. You are as likely to find spruce and wild rose as you are truffle and caviar on our menu. Our beverage program compliments this unique style of food, with hand crafted cocktails, house made infusions, craft BC ciders and local sodas. Classic wines such as those from Champagne and Burgundy sit comfortably beside those showcasing the best of the West Coast, ranging from the tip of the Okanagan Valley all the way down to Central America. The small restaurant and open kitchen allow for personal and refined service in an environment inspired by our surroundings. For guests travelling from further afield or looking to treat themselves to an unforgettable experience, our guest rooms offer a comfortable place to rest and recharge, located in the kitchen garden.
We are happy to welcome the next generation of diners and we ask that all guests, whatever age, fully participate in the dining experience by ordering from our menu and without the aid of electronic devices. Pluvio restaurant + rooms is a place to celebrate, relax and saviour your experience. We offer overnight stays to our adult guests only.
For those wondering, Pluvio comes from the word pluviophile, which means someone who finds joy and peace in the rain, which is how we feel out here on the edge of the world. Previously Norwoods Restaurant, Pluvio restaurant + rooms is the next chapter for this iconic Ucluelet establishment.
We are proud and excited to have the opportunity to welcome you to Ucluelet and our restaurant.

Absolutely amazing evening- from the atmosphere, to the service, drinks, and food. Everything was perfect. Ryan the bartender was our server, and was very knowledgable, engaging and mixed wonderful cocktails. Despite COVID, we thoroughly enjoyed the ambience, felt comfortable and safe, and the plexiglass at the bar was tasteful and non-intrusive. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

The best meal and service I have experienced in at least 3 years. The fountain of youth was a delicious way to start the evening. Each dish of the 3 course seasonal menu was beautiful in its presentation,, the flavors where sumptuous and our server/ sommelier was completely familiar with every aspect of each dish and her wine selection was spot on. Both myself and my partner Denise, thoroughly enjoyed our time at your restauaunt and we hope to be back soon. Thank you.

We had the three course dinner option at Pluvio last night. It was the best dining experience I have had in a long time. I say this not to take away from the amazing dinners we have enjoyed at places like Wolf in the Fog, or the Wickaninnish, but rather to highlight the incredible evening we enjoyed. The staff was engaging, knowledgeable and friendly, and the food was truly a work of art (in taste and appearance). I look forward to coming back on our next trip to the area (it was well worth the drive from our hotel in Tofino).

When each dish looks that amazing often the taste doesn’t match. In this case the flavours surpassed it was beyond our expectations and we will definitely be back and will bring friends

For those of you who enjoy taking your dining experience to a higher level of taste perfection while supporting sustainable cuisine, this lovely spot is worth your full attention. Very accessible, relaxed, with the kitchen and chef in full view, Pluvio works hard to have an unpretentious contemporary vibe. We loved the menu, with all options sounding very enticing. In particular, the tuna tartare, caramelized sablefish, and beef short rib (48hr braise!) were all to die for, their embellishments adding new depth and interest to their exquisite preparation. Truly a favourite spot for us to return to on every visit!

Our dining experience at Pluvio was amazing. We each had the 3 course menu and the 6 dishes we had were all fantastic (the winner of the night was the tuna tartare which was melt in your mouth amazing). From the amuse bouche to the foraging box, the entire experience was one to remember.

HI Warren and LIly, We loved our dinner at Pluvio! Your team did an amazing job, the food was fantastic. Your staff looked so sharp in the black aprons. All the staff were friendly and knew when to stop by and check in on us. The drinks were great. We liked being able to chat without having to shout above the music or background noise. It was fun to sit and watch your team at work in the kitchen. Our room was really nice and it was quiet. The breakfasts were great as well. We will definitely be back!

It is more than worth the drive to Ucluelet!!! Our meal at “Pluvio,” was one of the best I have EVER experienced and I know my dinner guests felt the same way!! From COVID safety to the final hidden treats at the end of our meal, everything was perfect. Dishes are creative, celebrate local fare, and presented beautifully. The service was wonderful and you cannot ask for better hosts. I can’t wait to go back.

This restaurant has adjusted very well to COVID dining. We felt safe and well taken care of with more than mandated room between diners and respectful distancing from the staff. Service was exceptional as was the delicious food....don't miss the opportunity to try one of the special cocktails the create....well worth it! Will definitely return on our next trip to Ukee!

I work for a Destination Management Company and our discerning incentive clients expect the best. While this visit to Pluvio was personal I know if we had a small group in the area we would want them to have a dinner experience at Pluvio. It is a modern, intimate dining room (with appropriate physical distancing measures in place) offering welcoming, knowledgeable service, an open (protected) kitchen and approachable fine dining with unexpected delights at every turn. We opted for the Celebrate the Coast Chef's Tasting Menu with wine pairings. It was fresh, beautiful, delicious and inventively presented. You must dine here!

Simple and casual atmosphere made a bit austere due to 50%Covid style spacing. We enjoyed a delicious and beautifully presented 3 course meal served by the ever attentive Ryan. The sable fish and tuna was out of this world. The halibut was so delicate it almost melted in your mouth, I personally prefer a little crispiness to the outer layer of fish but you couldn't fault this dish as it was perfectly rendered. The deserts were truly edible art! Thank you, Jane
