Where It All Began
Meet Francois Pilon, aka Frankie and welcome to his Ucluelet Restaurant. Ever since Frankie was a young boy he has loved cooking. Frankie grew up in Quebec, home to some of Canada’s most amazing culinary restaurants. The love of food was always around him, simple quality food. Frankie remembers summer days spent in his Grandfather’s garden, the fresh produce from garden to table. Frankie’s has always wanted to share his love of food with everyone, to be true to his Quebecois roots and do right by his family roots. In Quebec, Resto-Bar’s are very common, the kind of place you hang out with friends and family, have some great food and a couple drinks. Frankie’s dream of building an awesome ‘Resto-Bar’ [restaurant + bar], the kind he loved hanging out back home in Quebec, Canada is here for all of Ucluelet & Tofino to enjoy. Welcome to Frankie’s… pull up a chair and be right at home.
“Keep it simple. Keep it real.”

What Is A Resto-Bar?
Resto-Bar’s are very common in Quebec, Canada. A Resto-Bar is a combination of 2 words i.e. Restaurant + Bar, a short form made out of these 2 words i.e. Resto-Bar. A restaurant is specifically a place where you can find food which can include anything related to eating. And a bar is a place where you can find many kinds of liquor. Finally, a Resto-Bar is a place where you can find both the above things i.e. Food & Liquor at the same place. Learn more about Resto-Bars.

'Best BBQ Brisket Ever!'
"The food was great, there was a good choice of beers and it had a friendly, relaxed atmosphere."
"What a great place. Made to feel very welcomed on entering… server was fantastic. We ordered the pulled pork Mac and cheese for appetizer and brisket and the special rib-eye steak. Everything was delicious. There was a good selection on craft beer."
"We were not expecting such an amazing meal in small-town BC. "Pulled Pork Main" & "Smoked Meatballs and Fettuccine". We shared both between the two of us. Both meals were spectacular! Incredible flavour, and generous portions."
"We had the wings, chips and ribs - absolutely delicious crispy wings - some of the best we’ve had and fall off the bone ribs! Staff were helpful and polite and a cracking margarita, would definitely recommend!"
