In its 23rd year, the Rimrock Café has delighted diners with its innovative, fresh cuisine and emphasis on the finest fish and game, artfully prepared with inventiveness and flair. The restaurant is consistently recognized as a local’s favorite for atmosphere, service and a sublime eating experience. Behind the large glass window of our lit cellar, all manner of wines from the glamorous and recognizable to the intriguing and new seem to hum seductively. Two fireplaces cast an ambient glow over the chatter and energy of our rustic dining room. In summer, enjoy your meal on a sunny patio. The seafood antipasto for two is the perfect start to your meal. Stunning presentation meets succulent, vibrant flavor among the six exquisite tasters. Try our Venison tenderloin, served with a porcini cream and homemade spatzle. For the seafood lover, our main course Trio is a harmony of seared Ahi, nut crusted Sablefish and grilled prawns. Complete your meal with Whistler's favorite desert.

Very good food and great, great service. Seafood and game was prepared very well, and not in the boring, typical fashion. Only a few minutes from town but well worth the drive.

One of Whistlers very best Restaurants......although not in the main village, do yourself a favor and grab a taxi to enjoy this one. Specialty meats and Seafood options. A beautiful interior located in a Renovated Chalet. As you enter the front door and go up the stairs you can feel it is going to be great.

Waitress was too familiar. I know that shouldn't sound like a problem but when your out for dinner the wait staff should be there but not intrusive. Food was reasonably good. Had a better meal at Rim Rock. The restaurant is not in the village and is right on highway with a sketchy car park out back.

The best halibut I've ever eaten! Cozy Restuarant a bit outside of the Village. Really good salads and good service.

Have always wanted to dine at this lovely spot. Finally found it,a very intimate dining experience in a log home with great ambiance --- not suitable to bring small children. The food is amazing and the service is excellent. There is a huge wine list but nothing under $48 which is a bit disappointing. We were lucky to enjoy their... More

We had a business meal here while attending a conference in the area. The food was great, the service was top notch, I only wish we had gone back and ate here again while there. YOU GOTTA TRY IT. Seriously the menu options are very wide in choices and combined with their great wine selections it's one of the best... More

Our server at Longhorn recommended this restaurant to us....so glad we had a car to drive there...not far. They had a four course for 49 bucks! Very nice presentation and flavors that worked together for unique dishes. Tauffee pudding for dessert! Service was great too. Don't let the outside of the restaurant fool you...dining is upstairs and very quaint. Don't... More

We have come to expect a great experience at the Rim Rock and last night lived up to our expectations. Outstanding cuisine, wine list, service. A real testament to its longevity is the quality coming out of the kitchen and staff who have been with the restaurant for years. Tells you they are doing a lot of things right. We... More

The restaurant is consistently recognized as a local’s favorite for atmosphere, service and a sublime eating experience. Behind the large glass window of our lit cellar, all manner of wines from the glamorous and recognizable to the intriguing and new seem to hum seductively.
