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.

I must admit despite all the fanfare this is not my favourite burger, the meat was good but the bun was too thick in comparison to the meat. The fries were fine but not anything special compared to other restaurants. Perhaps my expectations were just too high given the awards it has received.

Great food in a great location. There are some renos at the street level, so the ocean view is somewhat obstructed by scaffolding and fencing. I had the white sangria and my partner a sour beer. We had the gnocchi and a fish and chips, and our 6 year old had a kids fish and chips. All food was excellent. The service was great - the server was very attentive with the waters, food and drink, but not in an overbearing way. Just friendly, professional and genuine.

We went to this restaurant based on the Vancouver Sun reporting it as having the best burger. This is the most we have ever spent on a burger ($21.00). The burger was good but by no means worth the price or status of being best burger. We will not be returning.

Went because article in Vancouver Sun Aug/18 said best hamburger in Vancouver area. Sorry, but it fell way short of best. For half the price we all thought you couldn't beat the White Spot. Would I go again. Probably. It was a lovely evening and the view was spectacular.

one of our favorites, a restaurant that focuses on quality food with local supply, they do what we all talk about doing every day.
Along with excellent food, they are willing to accommodate your diet needs and will make a special meal on the spot, very considerate.
Beer and cocktails are amazing.
Rustic ambience, it really fits the area and has a great ocean view from almost every outdoor seat.

The burger at Uli’s is absolutely delicious. It is as good a burger as I have eaten anywhere! The burger itself is worth the trip from Vancouver. This is a very casual restaurant, with a fun, very relaxed atmosphere.

Service was good but 150 with a tip for a couple burgers and 2 beer for me and 2 wine for my wife is a bit much . This is more than i pay for a good burger in vegas even with the exchange and they are better burgers there. It was a special occasion and heard the burgers were good , but probably wont be back.

I’m torn. Excellent selection of beer, but our food took more than 30 minutes to arrive, and my wife wasn’t happy with her schnitzel. Hard and cold. My sons and I enjoyed our burgers. I’m not sure if I would recommend Uli’s.

My husband and I had my birthday dinner at Uli's. We hadn't been there for a very long time and saw the article in the Province newspaper about the burgers. We didn't have burgers but will definitely go back to try them in the future. Not Uli's fault, but the view is ruined by construction across the street and there was a lot of smoke/smog in the air so the ocean ambience was missing. All in all, our server was awesome and the paella and crab cakes delicious.

Totally surprised this restaurant got so many good reviews! We ordered calamari as a starter it was cut into thicker strips and was a little on the rubbery side with little taste. My main was the Risotto mushroom dish which was super strong & drenched in white wine. Maybe as a side dish at best way to strong! My husband ordered spatzle & some deep fried meat. Spatzle was soggy with no taste & meat was ok. I think the only good thing was the Cesar (drink). Our bill was 110$ borderline ridiculous. I could have gone to the Keg for that. I feel the dishes were totally overpriced for what they were at 25$ each. Also the seats outside were all beat up & uncomfortable. Another disappointing meal out in White Rock 😔

As usual when visiting this restaurant we enjoyed good food and great service. The Neptune Schnitzel is awesome, the Paella fantastic, the burgers unique and delicious, the beer selection is interesting and the service was friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable. What a great way to spend a summer evening with friends, sitting outside enjoying a delicious dinner on White Rock’s waterfront.

The food was excellent - as always...
But the service was unusual bad : (

Too bad - as I had guests from Europe with me and was bragging about ulis and how great it is... not a great impression when it comes to the service : (
But everyone liked their food : )
