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.

Really good!

I can only say that this was a great experience. The whole restaurant has a warm atmosphere with a European touch. The service is flawless (we were sitting at a table at the bar and had a George Clooney like waiter, who was friendly, professional, funny and very unobtrusive) and the food... read more

We ate at the Rim Rock on the last night of our trip and it was simply fantastic!!! Nice quaint restaurant a little out of the way so we took the hotel shuttle. Our server was great and our food was simply fantastic! I had the lamb and it melted in my mouth.....all in all, best meal in Whistler!!!!

There was ample parking, reception was amicable, coats checked in and seated immediately. The wine list is extensive, the choices interesting. For the entre we had Ahi tataki, and Scallops – the mains were... More

A bit out of the way from the town centre but definitely worth the trip! There were 6 adults and 3 children in our party so we ordered a mixture of seafood and meat. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced, the service is excellent. I had the oysters served simply and with caviar. Both were fresh and creamy.... More

Rim Rock's food and service is consistently outstanding. Sticky toffee pudding for dessert is a must. It's located in creek side so you'll need to drive or take a cab...well worth it.
