Pluvio restaurant + rooms provides a unique dining experience celebrating the best local products and natural elements of Ucluelet and 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 + coastline, with a few sneaky international treats! You are as likely to find spruce and wild rose as you are truffle + caviar on our menu.
As we have very limited availability to allow physical distancing, restaurant reservations are strongly recommended.
We are currently offering two reservation options; the Pluvio Three Course Dinner Menu or the Chef's Tasting Menu. At this time, we are unable to accommodate reservations for just drinks, desserts, a light bite or a meal to share.
As per the provincial health order the maximum group size that we can accommodate is six guests (at this time we are not able to accommodate larger groups even if seated separately).
Please note all of our chairs are bar height + much of our seating is bar style seating, so please expect that you may be seated beside each other with our kitchen or bar team to entertain you. Due to our limited capacity, we are not taking requests for specific seating.
For parties of 5 or 6, or if your preferred date or time is not available, please contact us directly to discuss availability.
Thank you for your understanding
Our beverage menu compliments this unique style of food, with creative cocktails, house made infusions, craft BC ciders + beers 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 + 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 boutique hotel rooms offer a comfortable place to rest + recharge, located beside the kitchen garden. Each room has a private balcony and outside access, so are ideally for physical distancing, and we are offering contactless in room dining for our three course menu.
We have extensive measures in place to best protect our team, our guests and our community (you can view our full covid-19 safety plan here). We are able to offer dinner reservations to a very limited number of guests each evening with a new layout in the restaurant to allow for physical distancing. We still aim to charm + delight our guests, and each other, through kindness, generosity, creativity and fun, but may be doing so from a little further away and from behind a shield!
Pluvio restaurant + rooms was selected as the number 4 best new restaurant in Canada by Air Canada and enRoute magazine, at the annual Canada's Best New Restaurant awards for 2019 and Warren Barr + Lily Verney-Downey were some of Western Living's 'Foodies of the Year 2020'. It is an honour to be included in these awards amongst so many great individuals and restaurants.
We are proud and excited to have the opportunity to welcome you to Ucluelet and our restaurant.
