Absolutely fantastic! The whole experience was just incredible - the friendly, professional, and efficient staff; the "kitchen side" seats and being able to watch the chefs at work; the stunning presentation of the meals and amazing dishes; the ambience; the decor; the creativity that went...into every bit of it - we just loved it all. Thank you so much to Warren Lily and the whole team for a fantastic meal (we both wholeheartedly agreed it was the best we had ever had) and the wonderful stay in the Pluvio Rooms as well. This truly was an experience and one we both hope to share again.More

Thank you Warren, Lily and Team Pluvio for making my wife's 60Th birthday so incredibly special. We each had the 3 course menu ( which is actually 4 if you include the appetizers and house made bread ) and the dishes were .. OMG kinda...good! The presentation and flavours were truly exceptional. However to complete our dining experience, the service had to live up the quality of the meal and that it did! Lily and the team were both attentive and interactive . We truly felt part of the family while we dined. Thanks again. You truly have set a new bar for dining experiences !More

Pluvio is back after its traditional post-Xmas break, opening on Friday February 12 for Chinese Lunar New Year, and in time for Valentine’s Day. With this it has added yet another gracious element to its repertoire with a takeout dinner, which matches its dinner in-house...of a delicious multiple- course meal. It is accompanied by its on-site made bread and butter, chocolate truffles, a beeswax candle, matches, napkins, wooden cutlery, and table greens. Access to an appropriate playlist is included! The cost of dinning in is 79$ a person but with this new takeout offering, there is a 10 pct discount for pick up and 20 pct off if one is a local. Thus this shows a nice hat-tipping to locals, who become ever more important to local restaurants, now finding themselves without the usual flow of visitors to this ocean village of Ucluelet on the far west of Vancouver Island, where this world-class restaurant is located. Vegan, vegetarian and child options are also available for this takeout extravaganza. I, and my Ukee family, love Pluvio with its flavorful and imaginative food, attentive service, and very interesting wine list. My grandson, sees the stupendous bread and butter as worth a visit alone. That said, he loves all that follows from the bread and butter introduction. Pluvio’s menu is locally and seasonal based, where possible, thus with changes to it depending on what good quality ingredients are able to be sourced. Whatever one’s choice, takeout or dine in, Pluvio’s culinary competence and hospitality skills are clear for all to see. Posted by S FullerMore

We were delighted by every bite from the starters to the desserts. So many interesting flavors combined together and beautiful textures. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The cocktail list is fun and innovative. The wine selection is also amazing, great pairings and discoveries....A little food paradise on our beautiful west coast.More
