We sort of happened into the Float House, hoping for a view of the water with our dinner. That didn't work out since the patio was closed, but our extremely friendly and conscientious server made our dinner experience quite memorable. Thoroughly enjoyable -

Although this place is on the water it's almost like it was docked the wrong way as the kitchen area is open to the water but the indoor seating area has only a couple of windows and lacks ambience. That being said, the service was fantastic and the menu was a nice variety with average taste. I'm sure this place... More

Our kids loved the idea of eating on the float house. Would be even better in the summer time. Staff were very friendly and the food was decent. Heard many people talking about the ribs but I just had a burger which was decent.

We had the experience of arriving just when this beautiful spot on the water in a rustic Floathouse at their "Grand Opening" for 2017. Every person in the Floathouse was a friend by the time we left. we enjoyed the ambience, the other visitors and the food was fantastic.

The "FloatHouse" is,as the name suggests,a floating restaurant at the Ucluelet Harbour,connected to terra-firma by a fairly steep gangway.The seating is split approx. 50/50 inside or on the open,but roofed deck.It opens approx. 17.00.A quick check of the weather forecast is recommended,re. seating preference,since it can get rather chilly on the water,once the sun disappears (but they do offer blankets).\Small,but...

We ate here our first night in Ucluelet on a recommendation from hotel staff. We weren't disappointed - the food was lovely. We sat outside and it did start to get a bit chilly but the staff provided blankets. We went back on our last night just for drinks and the staff were again excellent!

We visited the float house for "happy hour " one night and loved the ambiance and harbour views so we went back for dinner another night. Unfortunately, the food was the worst we had in our whole west coast trip. The pasta with shrimp was quite tasteless, the fish and chips were very average, and the lamb "grease burger" (my... More
