First thoughts were this doesn't look nice and its quiet; however inside iis quaint and charming. Not a 5* restaurant but as far as I am concerned a 5* service and 5* for food quality and taste. We were tended to by two local women;...More

We wanted something light for dinner. Just soup and a salad. Loved the ambiance of the place and the salad was great. But the chowder tasted like it was straight from the can.

Ironically this restaurant is next door to Norwoods (fine dining, 3x price, foodie heaven) but a completely different experience. Inside is warm, friendly, homely with good food (including gluten free). Definitely worth a visit in your time in Ucluelet.

We had an amazing dinner in matterson house! The restaurant is very cosy and all the people were so kind! The food was outstanding! If we come back to Ucluelet ever again, we will defenitely make a stop and have dinner at matterson house again!

Looking for something to eat after a long day in nature we discovered the Matterson House by chance. We went on to the porch and asked if a table for 6 was available. As we didn't want to sit outside (it was already cooling down)...More

Such a tiny place and crowded inside, so we were glad to be seated on their small back terrace, despite the cold weather. Very good scallops & prawns on a skewer served w/diced beets and carmelized onions (or was it cabbage?) and a baked potato...More

Let me know if the website was not helpful in making a reservation. You will need one at this time of year if you want to count on a particular dining time. Enjoy
