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.
Excellent dining experience. Food and service were both top notch.
Phenomenal meal. Pluvio is a welcome addition to an area already known for excellent food and should be a destination in itself.
A wonderful evening. Thank you to Warren and Lily and Chloe for divine service and food and conversation
Once again great food and service
A lovely meal - great touches all around and super impressive
Hands town the best culinary experience we have ever had. Pluvio is a world class restaurant, I envy locals that have this amazing restaurant available to them year round!
As you enter Pluvio you are greeted by chef Warren, Lily or a team member and you are welcomed into to a small restaurant oozing ambiance and charm. You immediately feel you are in for a treat. The fine dining experience is second to none, each meal offers an explosion of tastes, colours and textures and are simply delicious. The team is attentive and knowledgeable. Our group thoroughly enjoyed the evening and savoured every mouthful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Our first time at Pluvio. Knew it was going to be relatively expensive and were hoping we would be happy - and we definitely were VERY happy. All of our three courses were absolutely delicious and so very beautifully presented. Taste wise, they were all our favourite. Presentation wise, all great, but favourites would be the shrimp appy and the Stick and Stones dessert. We will visit you again. Cheers.
Wish we could rate it 10 stars!! Very curious to see if Pluvio could match what had been one of our favourite restaurants anywhere... It surpassed our expectations on all fronts and we came back again the next evening to try other options on the deliciously creative and perfectly prepared menu. Great locally inspired cocktails and the best wine list we've seen in a long time - very well organized. Congratulations to Warren, Lily and the team!
This was our 2nd visit to Pluvio. Excellent on all fronts. The food is deliciously creative and fresh, wine list excellent and well organized, staff members are all very professional and knowledgeable. Pluvio is definitely our "go to" restaurant of choice in the Ucluelet/Tofino area. Thanks for the great experience and congrats to Warren, Lily and team for creating such a great place to dine!
An amazing culinary experience. Definitely the top food in the Tofino Ucuelet area. Wow!
Arguably one of the best restaurants in Canada. Very impressive.
We had a wonderful time at your restaurant. This little gem I will highly recommend to anyone looking for a great meal and atmosphere!
We enjoyed one of the best meals, ever. The food was excellent, prepared with skill and creativity with attentive, friendly service.
Pluvio is one of those very special places where the love of fresh seasonal ingredients is perfectly worked to create an incredible dining experience. This lovely, low-key bistro has a very easy elegance and approachability while having exceptional service and attention to detail. We were delighted and thoroughly enthralled by the beauty and flavors of every dish. New flavors, new ways of presenting classic treats... It was on the same level as The French Laundry, better than Chez Panisse, and without any pretension. Thank you for all the love you put into your craft and service! We will plan to visit every time we are in town!
We had a lovely time at dinner two nights in a row. The food was fabulous and unique, the service superb and friendly. Lilly made a special point to make my dinners dairy free as I am allergic. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a wonderful time and great food. Cindy
Thank you Warren & Lily for the first class dinner at Pluvio. It was amazing...the food, the vibe and the welcoming experience! Wishing you all the best with Pluvio...and thank you very much for the great time!
Excellent meal, prepared and served by excellent staff. We'll be going to Pluvio's for dinner again.
Thank you to all the awesome staff at Pluvio for a wonderful evening! The food was delicious and the presentation eye catching. Love the atmosphere you have created there and the attention to detail and care taken. We will be back!
Amazing food, service and atmosphere!
We were so excited to be there for opening night. It was a wonderful ending to our west coast visit. Every dish we tried was delicious and so thoughtfully created. Looking forward to coming back the next time we are out.
fantastic to have you guys here hope to back soon
We had the most pleasurable flavour filled evening at the official opening of Pluvio last night. From the friendly inviting greetings to the lovely personalization of the space and onto the amazing food.....one taste sensation after another, Warren & Lily you will be very successful in your new business venture with the restaurant and the rooms. The classy placement of the Norwood's sign gives Ucluelet's legend a rightful remembrance. Kudo's to you both, Judy & Carl, Betty & John
Great start on opening day. Love the food
