From the warm welcome, to the amazing food, the sublime wines and exceptional staff you would have to look hard to find a better restaurant in Whistler, even BC, even Canada. First visit for me but I will be back. I could not decide between...More

Excellent food and a cosy winter ambience. Some of the best food we’ve ever had. Seafood antipasto exceptional! Staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful. Highly recommended for a splurge for couples or groups of adults. Would be wasted on our (teenage) kids.

Rim Rock is not a "cafe", it is one of Whistler's best restaurants, albeit a bit out of town (taxi or bus essential, unless you are staying in Creekside). It has a well deserved reputation; we both ate fish (different dishes) and both were excellent....More

Our food was beautiful but for the huge dollars we paid we were wanting this to be a given. The disappointment for us came at the end of the night. We’d been sent an email advising that our sitting was 6pm to 9pm. At 8.40,...More

The food was nice and it’s a cosy restaurant - but for us, the initial greeting at check in ruined the vibe for the evening. I found the gentleman a little agitated and unfriendly and the food just wasn’t amazing enough to make up for...More

I am pretty sure the Four Seasons has a shuttle. That is all I know I am not sure how much cabs in Whistler cost. Google Whistler Taxi, there should be some good resources on their website.

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.
