Dining out is a very individual experience: “One man’s meat is another man’s poison” says it all. However, if you are looking for the freshest local ingredients simply prepared and eloquently served, you really can’t do better than Norwood’s Restaurant in Ucluelet, BC. Watching owner/chef Richard Norwood working with his sous chef Phillipe Mallette from the proximity of the “chef’s table” is as entertaining and exciting as a front row seat at a jazz concert. These two have obviously been close collaborators for many years and their results are outstanding. We recently spent three evenings in their company (together with their capable house staff) and were more than completely satisfied. Reservations are strongly recommended and be sure to ask for the table near the preparation area for a real treat. We sampled their “catch of the day”, the rack of lamb and several appetizers and found all consistently excellent. A wine list emphasizing BC wines is comprehensive and excellent in quality. This restaurant would be highly regarded in the largest metropolitan centre.
