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.

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.

The best food on the beachfront, made fresh and delivered by friendly, attentive staff. Uli’s is my go-to place when I’m hungry or when I want a delicious drink and a light snack.

We heard the burgers were the best but were definitely underwhelmed. The burger was good, don't get me wrong but it was VERY sloppy and not amazing. We also were sat beside an open window which had someone right beside me on the other side. It made having a conversation awkward. Overall our bill came to over a hundred dollars and when you go out for a few drinks and a burger you do not expect to pay that much, no matter where the burger is being served.

We arrived at 12:15 and were one of the first parties at the restaurant, our order went in around 12:30 and we weren't served until after 1:30.

Other tables who came significantly after our arrival had their burger orders well in front of ours and despite our server apologizing and saying he asked the kitchen to work on our order immediately we still saw order after order arrive for other tables.

Make sure you reserve ahead of time and book the patio if it’s nice out! The food is always a 10/10. Try a burger (delish!) and Sunday brunch is awesome. We love Ulis!

Delicious crab cakes - bit expensive, 3 for $27, great ‘bohemian’ salad, v. well balanced, moist, freshly cooked chicken, very good cheesecake

Haven’t been in a year and have always loved it. Service was good however the food fell short. Under seasoned for the most part (I had Vongole - sauce was very watery and not much flavour, had to wait 15 min for it to thicken from the pasta before I could eat it. Pasta cooked perfectly and clams were tasty). The gnocchi was really mushy and over cooked. The ingredients are all super fresh but the overall taste fell short of what we usually expect from this great place.

Great food. Fantastic server (don’t know his name but longer hair and a moustache. ). Had the halibut and it was divine. Also super impressed with the ‘wine-by-the-glass’ selection. Fun environment, classy and cosy. Great overall dining experience!

I love Uli's 2.0 burgers and brought cousins to enjoy burgers and beer a couple of evenings ago. The burgers were very good & the patio was enjoyable. The only downside is that a couple of my cousins ordered 2 small side orders that never came. I would prefer it to be a bit quieter, but I also recognize that many people like louder, upbeat music.

Food is great, view on the patio is great and lively. Only comment would be that we had to use a butter knife to cut through the chicken which was difficult to do (needed to bring us a serrated knife).

We were disappointed with the Paella...didn't like the sausage in it and the rice was kind of mushy. First time I didn't like the food at Uli's. I will just order something different next time!

The food was excellent! Locally grown and tasty. We both loved salad greens and the hamburger. Also, a very nice view of the water in central White Rock. The service was both friendly and attentive.

Street-level outdoor seating + chairs can be so-so confortable. OK but may want to consider indoor seating. Good service & great food.

Enjoyed Uli's famous hamburgers. The meat pattie was delicious and a tasty bun. The French Fries although generous tasted like frozen. The fact that it is a scratch kitchen it would be awesome to have french fries made fresh from hand-cut potatoes. Service was excellent.

The food was great and it was great to sit on the balcony. It felt like the servers were overwhelmed, as we had to wait a significant amount of time to be acknowledged or served after being shown to our table.

After taking our orders, we never did receive any cutlery and napkins. After asking when our food arrived, it seemed like asking for that was an inconvenience. Even after we got our cutlery so we could eat our food, I had to ask again for a spoon.

Overall, good food, great atmosphere, staff were cordial but very much not attentive.

We happened to book a table for my mum's 72nd birthday not knowing it was the Tour of White Rock Bike race. So a little noisy with all the cow bells but certainly not the restaurants fault. We enjoyed eating outside so I have no idea of how the sound would be inside. As for the food, none of us were blown away by the food. It was good but we all left a little disappointed. We all agreed we'd go back and try something different before making a decision not to go back. A little pricey for what I ordered in my opinion. My dad loved the fish and chips and thought it was the best he's had in a long time. You can't beat eating out by the ocean so that was spectacular.

It’s nice that they have different kind of specials on... (for different days of the week)... that way you get to try new/different food for a cheaper price - nice way to switch it up
