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 Jennie Silk is also making quite an impression on locals as they flock for her impeccable local flavours on the menu.

Food was awesome, service was great. It was a bit loud but that's not the restaurants fault. Will definitely go again.

Fantastic view. If the food price is lower, the value will be much better.

Great food. Pleasant service. However took over an hour from ordering to get food and we are a family with children.

If you want to chill, not to be rushed, good food in a great location- this is for you!

Our server Dean was awesome! The kitchen was a little backed up but it was Father’s Day so it’s to be expected. Overall super friendly staff and great food!

Server was very pleasant. The location is perfect for a bite after enjoying the beach, or just before a stroll on the beach.
I had the 2.0 burger and I have never had a burger that compares! It was unreal!
My friends also fully enjoyed their meals and drinks - We barely spoke once our food came and often made ‘mmmmmm’ sounds.
I can’t wait to visit whiterock again so that I can try the 4.0!

Great restaurant, nice view. I enjoyed the rustic look of the decor.
The food was good. Hubby ordered schnitzel. It was a good portion and he enjoyed it. I found it a little dry and could have used some sauce. I ordered steak bites. I found it quite expensive for an appy and a small portion. It was very tasty though.
We ordered the focaccia bread, it was not focaccia, it was soda bread.
Server was very good and attentive. They gave us a free dessert as it was our 10th wedding anniversary.
I would go back

It is certainly a tourist trap, overrated, overpriced & overhyped.

Extremely poor execution on food & the worst pork belly, clam chowder & reuben sandwich we ever had.

We ordered:

Calamari - $18.00
Clam Chowder - cup - $13.00
Vongole (clam & mussels pasta) - $31.00
Pork Belly - $32.00
Reuben sandwich - $22.00

Will not go back & neither should you!

I took my boyfriend here as a birthday surprise because of his love for burgers. The rumours are true - these really were the best burgers we've ever had! We also had the calamari and the financier cake which were both delicious. On top of that, we had a great seat looking out at the ocean, really enjoyed the atmosphere, and received EXCELLENT service from our server Breanna. It will be hard to convince me to eat anywhere else in White Rock now!

Great service and delicious food, our son always goes here so he recommended it for our 45 Anniversary! We enjoyed ourselves but just thought that being seated near the bar was just a little too noisy especially when you have another customer standing right behind our seats and loudly talking and hugging everyone he saw! That still did not take away from our experience and the very enjoyable food! We would definitely go back!

Really great!
Waiter.... top notch
Food ... go with medium for the burger! Delicious
The ambiance loses a couple points because the patio heaters were broken ( and apparently will be for a while as they contemplate replacing them or building an enclosed patio) I mention this because our reservation was for 8:15pm and everyone had their coats on who were sitting outside.
There was a whale :) , the view was unreal... but yes, chilly.
Perfect date night.

Ulis has one of the best views now that construction has nearly ceased viewing the pier. We sat on the patio and it was a beautiful view for the entire meal. The view, service, quality of food and drink.. Ulis blows my mind every time.

Good food and service. Only short fall of the experience was the Uli’s Paella, really flavourful, but was not dry enough, still a bit juice at the bottom of the pan when served.

Finally the construction fence across the street is gone, so you get to enjoy the beautiful ocean view while dining at Ulis. : ) Things didn't just change on the outside though... also on the inside some renovations have been done and Ulis looks even more cozy and welcoming!
