From Post-Ski Eats to Romantic Celebrations, Enjoy Whistler's Best Restaurants

Throughout the year, Whistler attracts visitors from all over the world to experience world-class skiing, beautiful hiking, challenging mountain biking and bountiful fishing. While there’s plenty to do here, there’s also plenty to eat. From high-end restaurants to casual eateries, fuel up at these Whistler spots.

When you’re in the mood for something tasty and affordable, head to La Cantina - Urban Taco Bar. The industrial space sets the tone for this laid back Mexican joint where the counter-service is quick and the beers are cold.  

For something a little more leisurely and cozy, The Red Door Bistro has a table with your name on it. Tuck into rich and comforting dishes that feature local ingredients. Just be sure to save room for one of their desserts that are made in-house.

No visit to Whistler is complete without going to Araxi Restaurant + Oyster Bar. Chef James Walt works with local farmers and producers to bring nothing but the best to Araxi's seasonal menu. This fine-dining restaurant is the perfect spot for a romantic dinner or celebration.
