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.

Can we give more than 5 stars for the Food & Drink and the Service? This is a destination dining experience, "out there on the edge of the world." If you make it to Uclelet, you need to go to Pluvio.

Out of all the dinners in Tofino and Ucluelet during our recent vacation, you were simply the best! We stayed in Tofino and drove over to spend the evening with you - it was spectacular! Thank you so much for giving us a truly memorable experience.

All of our food and service was tops. This was our first trip to Ucluelet from Louisville, Kentucky. Several locals recommended Pluvio. Excellent choice.

Everything was fantastic, thankyou for helping us celebrate my partners birthday. Chloe was wonderful, and special mention to the chef quality checking our meals, it was a nice touch. We will be recommending to our friends and definitely returning next time we are in town. Thanks!

Great restaurant with such unique flavours. The crab lettuce wraps were definitely my favourite followed by the Ling cod. Really good corn bread to accompany the dinner. Will definitely without a doubt come back on our next trip. Thanks again everyone!

My family and I dined at Pluvio and had an amazing experience! The food was excellent with so many flavour profiles that made our meal one of the best I’ve ever had. The staff took outstanding care of our every need and the Chef and his team produced a first class dining experience and one I would not hesitate to recommend. We will be dining at Pluvio’s every time we visit Ucluelet,

Honestly, you are totally spoiled for choice living in Tofino and in the Pacific Rim area for great food and restaurants but Pluvio topped everything I’ve tried in the last couple years! We had the pleasure of seating at the chefs table so we got to see everything being made and the incredible craftsmanship that chef Warren and his team create. I ate sable fish with pickled mussels WOW! Followed by BBQ carrots and polenta which was amazing and completed with strawberries and crumbly shortbread, we were also treated to homemade breads and mouth size bites of mouth exploding appes and mouth watering samples of delicious treats, and of course quality wines and ginger cocktails. The service and the conversations with Warren made the entire night ridiculously amazing, we LOVED it! Will definitely be back!

Everything was great! Rooms were beautiful and comfortable. View from balcony was a garden view. Liked being close to main street and could walk to stores in the area. Room was quiet. Breakfast hamper was a nice touch. The only thing I would have liked was some butter or jam for the cornbread (GF), otherwise we enjoyed our stay very much.

Absolutely fantastic culinary experience in all respects. The food was amazing with an innovative and distinct menu, use of local high quality, fresh, organic ingredients, and wonderful presentation. The wine we had was from a boutique Vancouver Island vineyard and it was excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Just book and taste! Great restaurant. If you want to drink alcohol don't forget to bring your ID to prove that you are old enough, My 26th year old son didn't get any alcohol because his ID was still in the hotel.

Lily, Warren, Francis, and team were wonderful! A very memorable group of people at the Pluvio. The whole team goes above and beyond to ensure your experience is fantastic. The flavours, aroma, visuals and people make the Pluvio a real dining experience, not just a meal. Thank you and we hope all we’ve spoken to show up to enjoy an equally great experience.
