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. We are happy to welcome children who will enjoy these menus + will maintain social distancing. At this time, we are unable to accommodate reservations for just drinks, desserts, a light bite or a meal to share, however we will be offering takeout options for more flexibility.
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.
From June 2020 we have put new 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 now 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 mask or barrier!
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.
The restaurant is wheelchair accessible, however the seating is at high top tables and chairs. This prohibits dining at wheelchair height, so a transfer to the chair is necessary or an adjustable height electric wheelchair. We are looking for a more accessible solution to this seating arrangement and appreciate our guests patience whilst we do.
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.
