Vancouver Island especially Sooke and Ucluelet

Tom Hall | Aug 30, 2009 01:05 PM

My wife and I will be going in a couple weeks or so for about 9 nights and I have many questions and some requests. We will spend alot of time in Sooke and Ucluelet, less in Victoria. We will eat anything from a hole-in-the-wall to fine dining. In Sooke and Ucluelet we will do some, maybe many, of own dinners, so we will need fresh ingredients, especially seafood and wine shops. I like to grill and cook when I don't have to do so at the end of a day of work. I LOVE seafood, my wife is more whitefish, crab, shrimp, steak and potatoes while I am more adventurous. We consider well done humble food, such as hot dogs, pizza, fish and chips, pub grub to be as good, maybe better than high end white linen restaurant food. We want local kinds of food (don't need Vanc-Mex for example).

Is the Sooke Harbor House restaurant "all that?" I am OK paying for it but I cannot get any idea of the cost of food or wine from their website. I also saw something about their former head chef opening The EdGe in Sooke.

Anything along the way between Sooke and Ucluelet, Ucluelet back to Victoria worth looking for? Seafood and ingredients in/near Ucluelet? Any restaurants in Ucluelet ot Tofino to try?

This should get me started and I will ask and query as I receive answers. Thanks.
