We had an early dinner at an outside table with a beautiful view of Boundary Bay. The main course was of good quality but the portions were on the small side. You do really need to order two courses to feel satisfied. The waiter knocked over the bottle of wine (fortunately white wine) but didn't offer any recompense for the... More

We came here on a Saturday night as a party of six and were seated in a separate little corner that was like our own little area. The food was excellent all the way through. I loved the seared scallops with chorizo as an appetizer and the pork medallions as my main course were very well prepared. My dessert was... More

This restaurant has been consistently excellent since I moved to White Rock in the 90's. It is small and intimate with excellent service, great view of the ocean, and not once have I ever had a bad meal. This restaurant is my husband and I's first choice to celebrate an anniversary, birthday or just a fine good meal.

I've eaten here many times over the years and the food quality is excellent. I noticed that quite often the main water seems hurried and it's like they want you out fast . It's not relaxing. I generally eat early . Recently I was the first to arrive as soon as they open at 5:30. I ordered my favorite dish,... More

The food is fine dining at its best. The waiters are probably the best on the main strip of White Rock Beach area. The drinks menu is impressive. It is a small restaurant and the food is superb. Yet—on the night I had dinner there, we were asked to hurry because they had a second sitting and time was running... More

If dinner is anything like the Sunday brunch - I can't wait to go back! We were the first table seated and the last to leave - enjoyed a full 3 hours there with wonderfully attentive and intuitive service - and a touch of humour as well. The four of us started with champagne and cassis and then all had... More

The location is close to the White Rock peer and parking can be hard to find. There is a lot of metered parking but it is packed. The restaurant is small and quaint and decorated nicely. The food is very good and portion sizes are good. I went twice in one week with two different groups and the main complaint... More

The view, the food the service is always very good here. I must have been going here for over 10 years and they still deliver that special night out atmosphere. A window table is always the best or if it is a nice warm evening the patio is perfect. A must try place when you are in White Rock.

Everything was wonderful. The atmosphere, a perfect evening on the sideway seating. Our meals were delicious. Scallops and Chorizo. Crab and Avocado salad. Both were excellent. The crab wontons were very tasty too. As was the Angel hair pasta with seafood. To top it off we shared a delicious piece of lemony cheesecake. The server was very attentive and pleasant.... More

Giraffe delivers consistently excellent service and food at reasonable prices. The restaurant has been doing this for many years and is a must for any visitor to White Rock. Ask for a window table if the weather is good. It has an excellent ocean view and is a good place to watch the crowds stroll by. Parking is always a... More
