Just had an excellent meal at Caramba's where our party of 16 sampled many of the pasta, pizza, meat and fish dishes and thought they were all excellent. The presentation and taste of the seared tuna starter, crispness of pizza, tenderness of the steak and richness of beef bourguignon stew accompanied by friendly service made for a very enjoyable evening....

We ate here as a large group (15+ people) and were offered a closed menu which was absolutely horrible! Meatballs were so spicy you could hardly eat them, chicken was not cooked and overall the rest of the food was just "forgettable". Will not return.

We reserved a table as we saw people eating nice looking pizzas and knew our son would be happy. The kitchen is open, with a proper pizza oven and the atmosphere in the restaurant is great. We had one of our best meals in whistler. Yes, the pizza was very good, but as were the more 'adult' options. We had... More

She also highly recommended The Half Chicken entree and Paired with a glass of wine.Our table was amazed by the service and food. Thanks we will be... More

This is not a high end restaurant but is more than adequate for pizza, pasta, and other options. We were a large group and from the prosciutto pizza to duck cassoulet, to steelhead spaghetti everything was fabulous. The pasta special of the day was particularly good. Prices are not ridiculous but the drinks do add a fair amount to the... More

This is a perfect dining place for any occasion! We go for dinner at the restaurant every time we visit Whistler and it is, after so many years, still my favourite place to dine! Location is ideal, service is excellent, menu selection is great and best of all, it is extremely reasonably priced (by Whistler's standards). Highly recommend it! Try... More

From the outside looks like a typical Mexican restaurant. We came here after another place was full. This place is big and we were seated quite quickly. Many food choices on the menu, food is better than average. But priced a little bit higher.... looking at $30 median price for mains.

SamCaramba, Manager at Caramba Restaurant, responded to this review

Jason, we are glad that you enjoyed your dinner at Caramba, from the outside we occasionally get mistaken for a Mexican restaurant, but our menu is actually influenced by European Comfort food with a Spanish twist. We use locally sourced and Ocean Wise products whenever possible. We hope to see you again on your next visit to Whistler. More

We had dinner here with a 3 year old who has a eclectic palate. He had the children's meatballs and a side of the garlic shrimp, ate everything. They had a section where families with kids were comfortable eating and feeling they were disturbing other diners. Two of us had the Seafood linguine, which was great, another the short ribs,...

This was a lovely restaurant. Classic mediterranean fare. Incredibly light and smooth roasted cauliflower soup and and delightful goat cheese pesto pizza! I left extremely satisfied (with some leftovers) and to overly full. Most definitely would return - great for vegetarians with comprehensive but not overwhelming menu. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meals. Appetizers worth it!

Caramba Restaurant reflects Jay Pare's vision of a truly fun dining experience. Mediterranean style comfort food with local influences, married with high energy service, within a very inviting and casual setting. Wood Fired Pizza, Pasta and Seafood. Dine in or Take Out. Enjoy one of Whistler's best appointed patios in summer.
