I have enjoyed for over twenty years dining at the Rim Rock Cafe in Whistler. It is in my opinion the best restaurant in Whistler and probably in BC. Have always enjoyed the excellent service, fine foods and wines, not to mention the desert "Death by Chocolate" I heartily recommend the Rim Rock. I am salivating as Iam writing tis... More

Before travelling to Whistler, I had heard a lot of recommendations for Rim Rock Cafe so I had high expectations. My experience greatly exceeded these expectations! The service was great - appetizers, main, and dessert all came at the perfect pace. The food was amazing and the wine list was great. Will definitely be returning to Rim Rock Cafe on... More

I am not a huge dessert person, but when in London I got hooked on Sticky Toffee Pudding! Coming back to the US, I typically look for it when browsing the dessert menu and will order it if available (roughly 7-different restaurants). I have been fairly disappointed in what I have come across…..until my family went to Rim Rock in... More

Rim Rock is consistently amazing. Food was delicious, service was attentive and not overwhelming. We took our time and were there for 3 hours. Never felt rushed or pressured. A high end restaurant with a great wine list and wonderful food.

We visited the Rim Rock during a road trip in Western Canada. It is consistently rated the one of the best restaurants in Whistler and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing - great oysters, amazing steak, and the special when we visited of 3 courses for $49 was amazing value for the quality of food served. Service was... More

We were excited to try this Whistler institution. The food was great, they had a nice wine list, and our waiter was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Should have been great but the hostess left a bad taste in our mouth. We had an issue with our reservation - the confirmation text went to the wrong number. The hostess was adamant... More

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.
