After a long day of hiking, Matterson House was recommended for dinner. The restaurant was full when we arrived so we took this as a good sign. The bread did not seem to be fresh baked, but rather seemed like a large hamburger bun purchased from the grocery store. The salad was gritty. The pasta was uninspired. If you like... More

Having dinner here made me feel like I was back home having a big home-cooked Sunday dinner. The inside of this 90 year old house is cozy and warm. The service was friendly and very efficient. I had a difficult time choosing from the varied menu but finally decided on a pasta dish " Verde Pesche" and was very glad... More

What a lovely restaurant. A great setting in an old style house with about 10 tables. Very good menu with a lot of choice. The matterson chicken was outstanding. Great customer service and a peaceful refined setting, without being pretentious. Not to expensive given the high quality of the food.

I arrived to an empty restaurant for dinner. The restaurant is situated in a small character house on the main drag of Ucluelet. I had a large and delicious spinach salad with broiled chicken breast, a generous glass of house Malbec and chocolate mousse dessert . The food was only part of the charm of the Matterson House; the owner/server... More

The food was meticulously prepared and the owners' pride is evident. You have to try the homemade blackberry vinaigrette salad dressing!

The food was well cooked with generous portions. The service was friendly and very efficient. The restaurant is in a quaint historical house. We arrived early and managed to get a table without booking but the restaurant filled quickly so would recommend making a reservation.This restaurant would be suitable for children. We ordered the Halibut which was a good choice.
