My partner and I shared the Halibut for two, it was great! It came with plenty of sides and was perfectly cooked. Our server Smiley was attentive and knowledgeable and the view has to be the best in Whistler

Fresh. Casual. Local. Inspired and influenced by our people, our place and our produce, AURA creates a casual and comfortable dining experience in a unique lakeside setting. Whether it's freshly-caught salmon from the west coast of BC or black trumped mushrooms foraged from the forest around us, we create unforgettable dishes using lovingly-harvested seasonal ingredients and then we share it with friends.
