We have eaten at Rim Rock Cafe several times and it never disappoints. The food is second to none and the staff is a seasoned group of great humans. We love sticky toffee pudding for dessert but everything is delicious.

The Rim rock and Red door are my favorite restaurants in Canada. My husband and I have been a few times and we've always left in such awe of the food and service. I wish I could give this 10 starts instead of 5.

Many people consider Rimrock the best restaurant in Whistler. It’s not hard to see why. The vibe is easy going - friendly without a saccharine overdose - “You okay with pouring your own wine?” type of place with stupid good food. We had their 3...More

If you’re looking for a delicious traditional Aussie pie then look no further than Peaked Pies. They do a great range of flavours and the service is fast and friendly. The only downside is that they’re a little pricey once you start adding sides (mash...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.
