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.

Uli’s is great. Even on a cold night, we got to sit on the patio under the heater with a stunning sunset - perfect ambience. The food is delicious - they have the best crab cakes and then we went for three different amazing burgers. Drinks are creative and very well done. And the desserts were just wow. Service was just the right balance of attentive but not overly present. And the birthday boys got their choice of dessert on the house. Nice touch! It’s not a budget diner but that’s not why you go to Uli’s. It’s one of my favorite restaurants. Thanks for a great evening.

Food is excellent! It is not inexpensive, but the food is so good, and the view is spectacular. Worth the money. Our server was very friendly, but professional, and extremely knowledgeable of the menu and the wines. We will go back again and again!

One pork belly, 2 schnitzel, and one fish of the day. Not one dish was worth ordering again. Average food and service nothing to write home about. Not worth the price we paid for the meal.

I’ve been dining at Uli’s for over twenty years, in WhiteRock, Whistler and back to White Rock. The last couple of visits were disappointing, this one may be the final one. We went for a birthday dinner (50th so it was significant and referenced in the reservation). Seated immediately but then it took 20 minutes to place a drink order, and another 20 plus to order. Sadly disappointed with the Paella this time but could have lived with that. I was charged double what our bill was, for items we didn’t order, apparently a computer glitch which four days later has not been removed from my credit card, at the moment I’m still out $300 for a $90 meal. No mention of the birthday, hoping my gift will be the return of my $200

I am sure glad to hear you got your money back the next day, we certainly did do the refund on the same night as I mentioned to you on the phone. Terribly sorry we didn't mention a happy birthday to you, we have made new procedures to insure this won't happen again to anyone. Thanks for taking my call last week Tyson

First time went there a week ago and burgers were great. However, last visit again a week later (brought more people), the burgers were overcooked and dry even though we asked the same doneness: medium.

The service is amazing - caring, polite, accommodating and all around genuine. The food is phenomenal. The Bison carpaccio is so savoury and melt in your mouth. This is by far my favourite restaurant in the Lower Mainland and the best on the White Rock strip.

Seating was a little confusing as there soared to be no specific area for service. Once seated, everything else was great. Great food and beer options,prompt service and water refills, food was quick etc.

Been, and worked at a lot of restaurants. I have to put this # 1. I don't work in the restaurant business any more but i do have formal training (Red Seal Chef ) so i can understand the amount of work the Chefs must put in at Uli's and it shows up in there food. We were in White Rock for just the one day and we
had lunch and dinner . A big shout out to Dean for the outstanding dinner service as well.

The table was a bit small and the guests next to us had a dog under the table (we were outside and the dog was very well behave).
The food was excellent and the service very good.
The place could use some renovations but overall we enjoyed ourselves.

Would definitely recommend Uli's and go there anytime I am in White Rock. The service was excellent. The food was great. My only complaint was that i thought the schnitzel would be bigger for the price. An excellent menu with something for everyone, and a great view.

The salmon gravlax was not what we expected. The fried bread was HUGE. We didn't like that the hot bread heated up the salmon and sauce and that the salmon was white in colour instead of red. Perhaps it was atlantic salmon.
The pork belly and halibut were excellent.

There were two of us. We agreed it was the worst paella we had ever been served, we left it. The coffee was cold and weak. We were refunded the price of the paella.
