A word from Uli's Restaurant
Uli's Restaurant is a White Rock institution. Opened in 1986 by Uli Blume, it was one of White Rock's original waterfront restaurants and quickly became a favourite among locals for its great food and friendly atmosphere. Uli's son Tyson took over operations in 2008 and he picked up right where his father left off – providing the White Rock waterfront with a fun and relaxed place to enjoy a vibrant atmosphere, stunning water views, refreshingly simple food, an extensive international beer list, and a diverse selection of wines. Chef Ryan Bissell is also making quite an impression on locals as they flock for his impeccable local flavours on the menu.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We always enjoy the different specials on the menu or stick with an old favourite, the paella or Uli's famous hamburgers. The atmosphere is great, all the staff is friendly and we like it when the "chef comes out to chat"."

  • "Have been to Ulis a few times and always had the Paella-it has a little spicey kick to it, the seafood changes each time, with what is available seasonally I presume, and you get a lot of it! My wife and I shared an order for one along with an appetizer. Thursdays, the last day I was there, has the added bonus of it being the "special of the day" and is $10 off! As I mentioned, we also shared an appetizer which was also fabulous-the charcuterie plate, a nice assortment of cheeses and meats with home made crostinis. Service was wonderful, interactive but not intrusive and the outdoor street side seating has a terrific view out across the water."

  • "As always the food is very tasty. We visited for brunch and thoroughly enjoyed the shared appetizer of baked brie. Unfortunately the second appetizer, oysters Rockefeller, did not make an appearance. When our various benedicts arrived we asked our waitress and she said she "forgot to put the order in". The benedicts were all yummy and the Hollandaise was perfect; except everything was luke warm with the exception of the muffins which were stone cold. We did bring this to the attention of our server and she said she would pass it on but that was apparently the end of the matter. The oysters arrived shortly after we had finished our egg courses and they were wonderful. I find the air temperature in the restaurant very cold."

  • "This was our first visit and both my wife and I are looking forward to our next time! We were thrilled with the beer and wine listings, offering some really interesting options. labels that you rarely find in restaurants. The food was excellent, very nice selection, and presented in a comfortable way, with explanations from our server on where the food was sourced and how it had been handled. And the view of the waterfront is a wonderful bonus, something we both enjoy; now we have a new favourite place to go back to in White Rock."

  • "This was my second time here. Was the most amazing and beautiful night I've had in a long time. What made this night even better aside from my beautiful date, was Neil. He made our night that much more memorable. Freindly, knowledgeable, and purely genuine. Will definitely go back there, and i highly recomend this place to anyone and everyone."

  • "Valentines 4 course dinner was $60 each person. But the deal is, 2 of the dishes is shared between 2 people. Feels like that really cheaper out and took advantage of the valentines day dinner. First dish was some pancake with caviar. It was so tiny. Plus the little specks of caviar on top. Leaving the place with a $200 which included wine and a 15% tip, we decided to grab an extra slice of pizza. No, we are not overweight people."

  • "My wife and I were looking forward to Uli's as we had been there quite a few times before, which was probably 9-10 years ago. and we were a bit disappointed it seemed more rushed and the food was not as good as it had been. There were lots of children and a fair bit of noise. still just as expensive."

  • "We reserved seating on open table because there was no mention of a set menu on their website and I really enjoy their regular menu. We received a call the day of to confirm our reservation because it was new years eve. When we arrived, we were provided with a set menu that did not have any of the regular items. We were very disappointed and ended up leaving before we ordered anything. We were told that they communicated the set menu on facebook and twitter but did not update their website. Disappointed about that evening, but have had very good experiences there before and so will likely return."

  • "My wife and I came on a Monday The restaurant had people but our table was quiet and we could talk as we wanted without shouting. The service made that easy also. Just enough attention for when we needed something and in the background when we didn't. We never felt rushed and our server was friendly and just the right kind if great - never interrupting and taking her curs to converse more from us. In fact though the person who welcomed us in was genuine and truly welcoming for a local restaurant. The food was the best non ethnic food / comfort food we have had in White Rock. Cocktails, shared beet salad, two entrees and a shared panacotta came to 86.00 plus tip. And this was extremely good food. The cocktails were the best I have had."

  • "We live in White Rock and have been several times over the years and this was the best visit by far . The service was by far the best by far due to the young lady who shared her knowledge and passion for the food. Thank you , i do apologise as I do not know her name but she does live on a farm."

  • "Went there for a birthday. The calamari was fantastic, spicy but not greasy and it came with a side salad that had a tart apple dressing. The fish and chips were also very good and the service was excellent. Would highly recommend."

  • "I hadn't been to Uli's in about 10 years - it has changed and the food is delicious. I've now been twice in the past 2 weeks. Perfect for a casual meal, friendly staff, lively atmosphere. The food is unpretentious and the portions are generous. I enjoyed the dungeness crab cakes and the bison carpaccio. The chocolate cake was fabulous - a nice birthday treat."

  • "We had not been to Uli's before, but had heard much about this lovely restaurant right on Marine Drive. They have won Best Burger in The Now's Best Burger contest for years running, and had to try it out. We sat outside - beautiful night, gorgeous view of the ocean. Our server was amazing and friendly. We met the owner, the son of Uli. Very personable, and he made sure to chat with every table. Love that! He obviously cares very much for his customers. The food was outstanding - our party had the schnitzel, paella and the Uli Burger and all were fabulous. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a gorgeous view, great service and fantastic food!"

  • "Clam Chowder and chorizo vongole pasta very good. They ran out of Salmon, but the halibut was overcooked and the risotto was undercooked. Premises could use some updating and painting, and cleaning. Staff's clothing looked a little untidy and in need of cleaning. Cheerful, helpful staff and prompt service."

  • "A friend and I went to Uli's for Brunch on the waterfront. Ordered a crab cake starter, and split eggs benedict and a chicken sandwich with dried cranberries and goat cheese. Both of our entrees were delicious and well worth ordering, but the crab cakes were the hands down winner. Don't miss these."

  • "lovely view and right across from thr beach. our server was excellent and we were never left waiting for service. the outside patio seating is great and has a nice ambience, although street noise is loud. lastly and most important, the food was fantastic. our table had a variety of dishes and no one was left disappointed. i got the veggie burger and it was SO GOOD. im not even a vegitarian but i wuld definitely order it over a beef patty any day. great resturant!"

  • "I had the Burger with cafe de paris which was explained to us a butter sauce made with 27 ingredients! It was a great burger along with great friites. Our server Stephanie was so knowledgeable about all the food and the wine and made our experience at Uli's that much better. Being that it's right on the strip, it can be noisy with street traffic but the view and the atmosphere makes it all worth it."

  • "This was my second visit. The first was kind of rushed as we had to get to a show, but we loved the food so much we wanted to go back. This visit was for a family b-day celebration, and our party of 6 including two youngsters really enjoyed our more leisurely dinner. Food was fantastic, service was great."

  • "Lets start at the begining. Last summer a friend I decided to walk into Uli's for a burger. We thought we've never been here and lets give it a try. We are glad we did. The burgers are great, they are also different, I would have never tried guac on a burger but it was great. Uli's ia now a staple for us, great food, a wicked beer menu, only fresh ingredients in the drinks, and a great blueberry cheesecake. They also have a very friendly staff"

  • "I find the quality of the food has deteriorated in my recent visits. It used to be exceptional and now is ok. We used to leave saying wow and now we say hmmm.... The location is great. On this visit the roasted potatoes were overcooked and dry, the hunter sauce on the schnitzel was ordinary and not well presented."

  • "Amazing meal. The charcouterie plate was unbelievable. Oysters wer fantastic, and the schnitzel neptune was moist and flavorful. Our server was friendly and knew a lot about the menu. The decor is textbook white rock - looks like an old fish and chips dive with a facelift. Best meal I have had south of the Fraser river."

  • "A great evening as usual. Very good food and friendly, helpful service and management. My only negative was the green salad which, although fresh, was just leaves and they didn't have my favourite dressing (blue cheese). I tried the corned beef sandwich for the first time which was homemade, moist and delicious. It almost had too much corned beef (if that's possible). The burgers are all favourites too. A great spot for any budget. Never a disappointment."
