Pure Bread

Copy Link
Innovative flavours combined with the happy skill of getting the basics spot-on make Pure Bread an unmissable bakery experience. The lavender scones are to die for.

Southside Diner

Copy Link
If you're staying Creekside this is one of the best budget options around. Service can be hit and miss but for diner basics (as well as hedonistic combos like Baileys and Cornflakes) the Southside can't be beaten.

Aura Restaurant

Copy Link
The place to go out of the Village for relaxed fine dining, Whistler-style. Locally-sourced menus, special winery dinners and wonderful views over Nita Lake.

Rim Rock Cafe

Copy Link
A Whistler institution and the usual answer to the question, "If someone came into town, where would I want them to take me?" Specialising in game and fish, maybe not one for vegetarians.

Grill & Vine

Copy Link
Artisan pizzas from a stone-hearth oven and deceptively simple grills are the order of the day at the Westin. Feeling snacky? Check out the cheese and wine flights

Sushi Village

Copy Link
Upstairs, just off the main square, you'll find some of the most delicious sushi in BC in this family-run Whistler institution. The Super Hiro roll is especially good here.

The Mix by Ric's

Copy Link
Award-winning bartender Tia Stonier's creations make the Mix a Whistler essential. Late-night DJs and tapas plates make it even more tempting.

Bearfoot Bistro

Copy Link
The quintessential Whistler experience: whether you're there to enjoy Chef Melissa Craig's pitch-perfect locavore menus with the Bearfoot's legendary service or learn to saber Champagne with irrepressible host André Saint-Jacques in the wine cellar. Also home to the Belvedere ice room so you can toss back vodka while snugly dressed in a parka.

Araxi Restaurant + Bar

Copy Link
Fine dining Whistler-style from James Walt, one of Canada's leading chefs. Possibly the best 'magical date night' restaurant in town. On a budget? Check out the daily specials at the new oyster bar.

Alta Bistro

Copy Link
Leave the main village and cross over to Alta Bistro to enjoy unpretentious seasonal and locally-sourced French-inspired food from Chef Nick Cassettari and team. Make time to try Scott Curry's award-winning cocktails.

Peaked Pies

Copy Link
New to Whistler and serving up authentic Aussie pies like steak, bacon and cheese - perfect for the antipodean population who appear with the first snow of the season.

Mount Currie Coffee Company

Copy Link
Relatively new to Whistler (they have a branch in nearby Pemberton) but already winning fans by serving perfect lattes, healthy smoothies and Namasthé Tea along with home-baked goods with a side of free wifi.

The Wild Wood Bistro & Bar

Copy Link
The local's place for plentiful and reasonably priced brunch with delicious Caesars and innovative benedicts. Tucked away in the Whistler Racquet Club, this is well worth the possibility of getting a little lost to find this gem.
