 Annual Bite of the Rock


 If you love dining out and discovering new restaurants,
then you should not have missed out on
the 8th Annual Bite of the Rock.

Foodies enjoyed a delightful and affordable evening out at eateries
located throughout our scenic beach side community of White Rock.

From January 20th through February 13th, selected White Rock restaurants offered three course menus for $15, $25, $35, or $45. This was a fantastic deal which created a great opportunity to explore new restaurants that you might not have even known about otherwise.

The participating restaurants are still listed below.
There were also several culinary events taking place during the Festival, so be sure to check them out!

Over this 25 day period, the Bite of the Rock Restaurant Festival highlighted eateries from 4 different districts: Uptown, Five Corners, West Beach & East Beach featuring a unique culinary mix. Even though the Festival is over, we would still encourage you to come and discover authentic White Rock.

Event - Plan a Staycation During Bite of the Rock

Why not make a night of it?

Let’s face it, January and February are the coldest months of the year and not all of us can realistically sneak away to warmer locales. Yet, following the hustle and bustle of the holiday season,
we can all probably use a little R&R.

So why not treat yourself to a little escapade and turn Bite of the Rock into a relaxing staycation? White Rock’s Ocean Promenade Hotel is an awesome hotel in a seaside resort town (just 45 minutes from downtown Vancouver) with sweet restaurant offers.
