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.

Love the food and ambience of this establishment. Albeit, the food is little bit on the pricier side, the food quality makes up for it.

Uli’s is one of our favourite places to dine in. One complaint I have is(very minor one) is I wish they had different desserts other than cheesecake and the flour less cake.

This place is not inexpensive. Especially the wine list. That being said, the food is outstanding. Every bite delicious! The vibe of the place is highly energetic. Uli's is a great place for a good time.

Uli's never dissapoints when it comes to serving good food at a nice price point. The service is always courteous and prompt. Even though they were busy, we got our food without having to wait a long time. I always go for their burgers because there are so many options to chose from and it's always good.

We three really enjoyed ourselves for last Saturday brunch. The menu listed so many great choices and each of us had a different eggs Benedict. I added a side of delicious bacon to my veggie bene, and wasn’t disappointed. The salad was cold and lightly dressed while the roast potatoes were hot! And the eggs bene, so delish. Easy to tell food is locally sourced. Friendly, attentive staff, comfy environment and ,The view! We could’ve eaten outside as they heated the patio. Next time😊

A busy place, in a good way. Booking definitely recommended, and getting there earlier in the evening (6:15pm) was good for getting a table with a view out to the pier and water. Great service and ambience. Good food. Recommend parking in the new West Beach Parkade close by on Vidal Street. I think it is cheaper than the city street parking, and we got free EV charging there also :)

Fantastic food and service. A beautiful little hidden jem in White Rock that is a must visit location if you enjoy food with a international inspiration. German inspired dishes executed phenomenally well.

Do I need to say more than salted caramel Cheescake with house made caramel? Go there now find out what the current Cheescake is, and hope there are still burgers left. Don’t forget to compliment Clark’s beard.

Went on Thursday night for paella - still the BEST! Love the BYOB with no corkage Thursday’s! Schnitzel, my favourite, was delicious. Best value on the beach for sure.

I have eaten here several times and the food and service has always been excellent. That being said we decided to celebrate with an early New Years Eve dinner and it was not up to expectations. They had a few dinner specials and I decided to veer off of their tried and true entres.
They had a specialy prime rib dinner and I love prime rib.
Unfortunately it was terrible. Tough and unlike any prime rib I have had before. Maybe it was the Donia Farms grass fed beef? But for $60 I expected much better.
I sent it back and was served a Strip loin which was $40. It was okay.
Wife's paella was excellent as was the caesar salad and desert.
One further point. We ordered a bottle of wine. I understand there is a huge markup on bottles of wine in restaurants and I accept that. But a quick check of bottle we ordered showed it was $23 in liquor store. They were charging $60!!!
To me that is just gouging the customer.
I wish restaurants here would follow Quebec and Ontario and allow reasonable corkage fees when you bring your own wine.
Soooo....stick to their standard fair and don't order wine and you will have a great meal!!!

This was our first visit to Uli’s and we look forward to coming again - perhaps for lunch after a walk along the waterfront. It has the perfect ambiance for it - relaxing and welcoming.

We had come in from a blustery walk on the Pier and were welcomed in by Dean, our server for the brunch. He made us instantly welcome. The food was fantastic and my cousin and her husband from downtown Vancouver vowed they would return at their first opportunity. As for me .. I come quite often!

Most of the red wines sold by the glass are flat due to oxidation because wine is kept too long in uncorked bottles, especially the red reserve wines that are kept in a contraption that ruins wine.

Uli's is one of our favorite restaurants, however the food was not up to their high standards on this particular evening. You can never go wrong with the paella but on Thursday it was gummy, had minimal seafood and wasn't very warm. An overly rambunctious group of men were at the table in the corner and disrupted a quiet enjoyable evening with friends. Their profanity, loud behavior was a huge distraction. We love Uli's and will be back, as this was not the norm.
