This place has to be perfect for a lot of people. They offer all the right things from the wine list to the specials and regular fare. For me, it’s a little outdated. Our server was very nice and did everything she was supposed to...More

Rim Rock Cafe was excellent. My wife and I had the mussels and seafood antipasto as appetizers. Both were superb. We then had the venison and elk as main courses. Both were excellently prepared. However, I preferred the venison as it is a more tender...More

Easily and hands down the best restaurant in Whistler/Blackcomb, and possibly anywhere else. The cauliflower soup was beautifully flavored (friends commented it being the best they have ever tasted), the salad a beautiful and nice size blend of veggies with blue cheese (fresh, yummie), and...More

I really can't recommend this place enough - the food and service were exceptional, and it has a really cosy, welcoming atmosphere. One of the best meals we've ever had - we'll definitely be back when we return to Whistler.

Had a fantastic dinner for 6 the second week of January. The sable fish with risotto was delectable. Unlike some other restaurants in Whistler, we could actually hear ourselves talk. We sat next to the fire for cosy ambience. Our server had great command of...More

Description
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.
