We came for the $30 three course Spring special. Although the food and service was good, the value wasn't as good or comparable to other similar specials around the village. The obvious and continued up-selling became annoying too;additional drinks,appetizers,dessert,etc. Two in our group opted for...More

We both elected to have the three-course spring special for $30 and we were blown away by the quality and delicacy of the food. In this buzzy, happy, noisy bistro they have obviously refined the relatively small selection of dishes to perfect them. Each mouthful...More

We came here for the locals meal and it did not disappoint. We like checking out the high end restaurants in low season for the deals and that they are less busy. The food here was very good, service was excellent.

This is now my favorite restaurant in Whistler. Absolutely love the atmosphere, the cocktail menu and of course the farm to table menu. The service was exquisite. Wish I could remember our sever from Montreal’s name as she was excellent.

My wife and I went to this location twice in Whister while we visited-a local's well-kept secret. Fanfastic food/wine list and service. Very under-rated, and first class everything! Right behind the Delta hotel, and away from the frenzy of the main village.

Locally inspired cuisine set in a casual bistro atmosphere. Chef Nicholas Cassettari combines his classic training, top tier experience, and world travels with the best of B.C.'S bounty to create the fine flavours at Alta Bistro. Service is casual and prompt in the dining room and bar. The wine list is French focused, with the best of B.C. As well as international selections (many by the glass) with Enomatic machines dispensing fine and eclectic selections to pair with Alta's cuisine. Mixologists behind our bar craft some of Whistler's finest cocktails. The cozy bistro atmosphere is lively and welcoming. Reservations are a must.
