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.

For my 30th birthday some friends decided to surprise me with a weekend getaway to Ucluelet and dinner at Pluvio. Having read earlier that they made EnRoute's Top 10 list I was elated that they managed to snag a reservation! If you're not up for reading a long review, I'll summarize. Go. Go as soon as you can get a reservation. Pluvio is a stunning homage to the west coast. From the moment we pulled up a day before our reservation to pop in and ask if they had any cafe recommendations, the hospitality and care of this restaurant shone through. (They recommended The Foggy Bean - I'd second that suggestion, too!) We showed up for our reservation to a warm cozy welcome and I was blown away that as a group of 9 they opened up their full menu to us. I have to say a massive kudos to the kitchen staff for what I know was a lot of work. From the cocktails, to the service, to the impeccable playlist (I'm not joking when I say that I think they had maybe hijacked my spotify account...), to the dropping our dishes, Russian imperial service style no less, to our server Chloe's easy going, kind and attentive personality. The food was approachable and yet refined. Each dish was executed beautifully. There's nothing I can say that EnRoute hasn't already. It was outstanding. The cocktails were absolutely inspired and when I left my cocktail choice up to the bartender with a couple parameters, I was wowed with a delicious cocktail that paired perfectly with our crispy duck crepes. The night was perfectly capped off with a sweet treat from the kitchen - salted caramel bonbons hidden among seashells and driftwood with a candle to blow out. I can't wait to bring new friends and have them experience the magic that is Pluvio. Our experience made my 30th birthday one I'll never forget. It's honestly a true gem tucked away on the coast.

My girlfriend and I reserved a table here for my birthday this past weekend and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. This restaurant is a stand-out in beautiful Ucluelet not only for it's an adventurous and delicious menu but the service it offers. We were served by Francis and he was on top of things, friendly and had an innate understanding of the menu and ingredients. We are vegetarian and pescatarian (her and I) and they ensured our 4-course meal matched our dietary choices. Thank you for an awesome evening and the most delicious tuna tartar I've ever had! PS: The full meal was delicious!

I was a bit uncertain when making a reservation because I thought “what big boots to fill” placing a new restaurant where Norwoods once was.. Honestly, what a testament to the artistry of mixology and passionate food creations. From the environment to the service and the absolutely incredible dishes, you have overflowed the boots. Congratulations.. We will be back and we recommend anyone and everyone to go in and enjoy this beautiful dining experience.

Culinary indulgence to the max! A fantastic evening out, filled with culinary surprises. The dishes are presented in the most creative and unique way. The combination of ingredients used will give you an amazing tasteful experience. The service is very personal and guarantee a great night out. By far the best service and food, I had in a long time.

It was all very good, for both of us we got to experience some new food preparations that we had never had before and we were both delighted with the experience. The service was excellent, attentive,informative and discrete. We will definitely return in the near future.

We had the most wonderful night at Pluvio. This restaurant truly is an experience, and no attention to detail was missed. From the restaurant decor, the logo design, the plating....the thought they put into each area was not missed. And, of course, the food was incredible. Creative, delicious and a real highlight of our beautiful province. We wish this restaurant was closer to our house, we can't wait to plan our next vacation to eat at Pluvio's again.

Dining in Warren and Lily’s establishment was an absolute pleasure, through and through. We visited twice on our stay in Ukee- this would be an absolute weekly fixture of ours if we lived there. The atmosphere is warm and lovely, the staff are a group of the most legit in the industry. As a non alcohol drinker the bartender threw down some absolutely beautiful non proof cocktails that were amazing. And the food.... ohhhh the food...It was so thoughtfully prepared, well executed, and amazingly delicious that I almost cried. No lie, it is rare to have this caliber of dining on our island. Go. Go now. Go many times. And praise these lovely people for giving us what we so very much crave, in a world where a good meal can completely change a day and create lasting memories.

Very nice and enjoyable dinner!all the dishes were extremely good, as well as service and overall dining experience. I’m not a chef but would just add a constructive point to Mr Warren...I took the scallops as main, those were tender and very tasteful...why cover their taste with a Indian-like taste sauce ?

The quality of the room and the restaurant were equally superb. Our meal was incredible and I doubt I'll soon have short ribs of that quality any time soon.
