Dining in Whistler Village Canada

Dining in WhistlerIt rained a lot during our last trip to Whistler.  The picture above was on Whistler mountain on one of the few clear days. Besides napping, reading and watching movies, we ate out a lot. We have favorites restaurants in Whistler.  This visit we tried several new restaurants. Dining in Whistler has something for everyone.

Dining in Whistler

Araxis – Fine dining, consistently rated the best in Whistler and known for their oyster bar.  A good choice for a fancy night out. They have limited gluten-free options.

Basalt Wine and Salumeria – For wine, cheese and meat lovers.  A good place to munch and linger over a bottle of wine during a long lunch.  There is an outside patio with fire pit.

Caramba Restaurante – A large casual dining Italian restaurant.  Good for pizza and pasta dishes.  They have gluten-free pizza.  The kids will like this place.

Christine’s – On top of Blackcomb mountain for lunch time fine dining.  Quiet place to escape after a morning of skiing. Menu is limited and portions are not huge. Food is well prepared.

Earls – Predictable chain restaurant, nice bar, excellent tacos and friendly waiters. A good pick if you don’t have a reservation on a weekend night. Bar scene is always fun.

Elements – Small out of the way restaurant, good for lunch. Lettuce wraps are popular.  Go if you have plenty of time, the service was super slow.

ll Caminetto di Umberto – Upscale Italian restaurant. Good for families and large groups.  This place will satisfy your cravings for good Italian food.  Reservations recommended.  The warm goat cheese salad is shown above.

The Grill Room - Fine dining at the Fairmont.  Beautiful room with lovely fireplace.  A little on the stiff side for our liking.  Service is prompt and polite.

Mallard Lounge & Terrace – Drinks at the Fairmont.  Can be crowded and noisy.  Nice appetizer menu and expensive drinks.  Comfortable sofas for relaxing.

Milestones Grill & Bar – Reviews on-line are mixed.  Salads lack enough lettuce and can be overdressed.  Food can be served on the luke warm side. When the food is good, it is really good.  You can’t beat the location at the bottom of Blackcomb mountain.

Rendezuous Lodge – On top of Whistler mountain, fine dining at lunch. Best to make reservations. Better menu than Christine’s (in my opinion). Friendly and helpful staff.  Wine flights a plus.

Sidecut – Upscale, classy restaurant at the Four Seasons.  For meat lovers.  The best meal of our trip.

The Mexican Corner – Smallish traditional Mexican restaurant.  They take no reservations, so go early.  Sit at the bar if the restaurant is full.  Happy hour starts at 5:00. Everything is delicious.  We loved the tacos, tortilla soup and guacamole.

Traveling with lipstick is my blog on travel, beauty and living life beautifully organized.  I travel to Whistler Village in Canada, with my husband for skiing at least once a year.   We are both very familiar with the area and dining in Whistler.  The weather during our recent trip was not ideal.  The good news we got to add several new restaurants to our list of favorites.  Had the weather been perfect we would have missed out on some great dining experiences.
