Though often referred to as a "German" restaurant, Uli's possesses an eclectic menu that offers something for every palate. Their seafood dishes are to die for, especially the seafood chowder in a creamy dill broth and the generous servings of linguini swimming in fresh seafood. My personal favorite is the savory saffron-infused paella considered by many to be the best this side of Spain.
Recently, Uli's Restaurant made the transition of ownership from German-born Uli Blume to his dynamic young son, Tyson. With years of experience managing some of the best restaurants in downtown Vancouver, Tyson has brought his own energy and unique vision while maintaining the charm and traditional dishes of his father.
Though Uli's is very good value for money and some of the main courses could easily serve two people, Tyson offers weekly specials that make this extraordinary restaurant an even better value. Wednesday is "Schnitzel Night" with three different mouth-watering versions of the German specialty offered at half price. Thursday is "Paella Night" when a couple can dine on a monster-sized platter for two, full of steaming hot pieces of chorizo, shrimp, mussels and clams at just $20 ($13 for a single).
In addition, Tyson brings along his considerable experience in wine tasting and continues to expand the restaurant's impressive wine list that includes the best from British Columbia, California, Australia, and Old World Europe.
With indoor and outdoor dining poised over Semiahmoo Bay (even in winter under huge heaters), Uli's Restaurant is always a memorable experience, and the warm engaging smiles of Tyson and the exceptional wait staff will leave you smiling too.
Herr Uli Blume...the future of your restaurant could not be in better hands.
