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.

Appetizers were great. Mains were average. Service was not impressive.
May recommend the place but there are better restaurants in the area.

Our fave waterfront restaurant in White Rock. The food is always great, as are the wine list and service. Oysters Rockefeller, Mussels & Clams and Schnitzels are our favourites.

Service 100%
Setting 100%
Food 60% not as good as advertised. Beef Dip had a strange sauce and threw off the flavour.
Were out of stock on 2 items that I wanted. I’m okay with it but at least make a note on the menu, especially since they had no idea of when it’d be available again.

Uli’s has fabulous food and great staff. The building is old so a little drafty and with the unusual weather this year it was a little chilly, but overall a fabulous holiday lunch.

Service was great but I think the chef is lazy and out of touch with the food. Chili flakes are a mask that one doesnt expect at this level

I have been going to Uli's for years. Last night my wife and I decided to have an early dinner and reserved a table for 4:45 in the afternoon. Because it's winter, it was already dark so we could view the Christmas lights at the pier which was a wonderful ambience for our dinner. The meal that we were served is the best I've ever eaten at any restaurant on White Rock Beach. My wife had the Forester schnitzel and I had the short rib ragu. Both were excellent and were preceded by a shared Bohemian salad which was to die for. The service was cheerful and informative. And we will be back.

The food is always great. Our waiter was terrific, but not sure about the rest of the staff as there weren't other customers seated beside us. Location is outstanding.

Only negative was that there were 2 guys standing by the washrooms and one guy was describing how wonderful his property was, but every third word had f..k somehow used. I don't see how the restaurant was to blame, but it was a bit uncomfortable for me. (That's why a lower score for ambience).

The servers there really enhanced our experience. We made dinner reservations for a birthday, and not only was the food amazing, but the staff was so kind and personable. Our server (can’t remember his name!) was absolutely fabulous. Then, when we left, another staff member chatted to us on our way out wishing my partner a happy birthday. We had a great time and I’ll be coming back and recommending this spot to everyone!

We have been to Ullis many times. However, this time the food was actually poor.
It was surprisingly poor, so we don’t feel like coming back for a while.
The hamburger was soggy, my calamari was way too hot and I received a less hot version, still not good calamari. Too much breading.
My carpaccio was cut so very thin that I couldn’t pick up the pieces. I have had it at Ullis before and it was cut thicker.
My husband didn’t like the fries, too thin and dried out. All in all not a good experience, unlike other times.
So not good this time.
We liked sitting by an outside table.
Thank you for listening.
Soren and Uta Bach

Our server really made the evening special with an appropriate level of humour and wit, and knew the menu well. In addition to the specials, he shared that the kitchen decided to make another version of the gnocchi. We tried both (bacon with wild mushrooms and duck) and were very pleased. The baked brie in phyllo with blueberry jam and roasted garlic was just the comfort food we didn't know we needed on a cold rainy night. Our meal wrapped up with carrot cake that was not only divinely moist, but the strong dash of ginger made it memorable. And delicious.

The mussels were excellent, quite pricey but worth it. Schnitzel was perfectly cooked, not over-fried like some places. We didn't like the vegan coconut chai panna cotta so much, the consistency was not really at all comparable to dairy panna cotta and the thick caramel shards were very hard (perhaps most could be pre-shattered with only a few left large as decoration).

The servers tried to be very accommodating but were inevitably overwhelmed when the restaurant reached peak capacity at Sunday brunch time.

Similarly the kitchen was overwhelmed too and we noted another family begging staff to at least bring their starving kids' food out soon.

Overall I enjoyed my visit, but it could have gone a bit smoother.

Service was excellent. Food was good. We appreciate that everything is house made. Wines by the glass were somewhat limited and a bit overpriced for what was on offer. Overall we had a good meal with good service in a pleasant setting.

Two of the four had paella which they rated outstanding. The other two had schnitzel and fish and chips, both rated as 3 out of 5. Disappointed first choice of short rib ragu was not available.
We found the wine list incredibly expensive with very little selection in the $40 range.
