Pescadores Bistro is our favorite stop for food on our annual fishing trip in Ucluelet. The staff is friendly and efficient and the food is great. We ordered the shrimp tacos, soup and the steak sandwich and were all pleased with our food.

Great little restaurant. Had a very nice breakfast there on our way home from a camping trip. Homemode cornbread with the omelette was a very nice touch. Will definitely return, next time I'm in the area.
