Just got back from a get-away weekend in Whistler, got a great rate and package off the Nita Lake website (food lovers or romance package) I think. We found out about this new hotel from a freind's wedding this summer, its got to be Whistlers best boutique hotel by far. We had the pre fixe tasting menu. The server explainded to us that the restaurant philosophy is to always offer a prixe fix menu even through the busy winter season. Back to the food, I started with a duck and foie gras terinne with quince it was beautifully presented with a truffle and watercress salad, my partner had the albacore tuna carpaccio which had a real westcoast Feel.
Our entres where equally impressive. The artic char was served with a delicious smoked salmon and horseradish veloute the sauce was Amazing. My main was a brasied veal breast (osso bucco)once again the presention was impressive and the meat was mouth watering, this was served with a saffron risotto which was cooked to perfection, I thought the kitchen knew what they were doing but this really sealed the deal. We usually do not go for dessert but as they were included in the set price we both grabbed our spoons and once again we were not dissapointed.
We both found the service to be friendly and helpfull and will totally reccomend the hotel and restaurant.

I met my friends there on the weekend and had a fabulous time.
We had a bunch of dishes to share, which they recommended, and everyone really enjoyed the food, we really liked the sweet chilli chicken and they have the best calamari.
Our server was friendly and very helpful to accomodating my friend who has food allergies.
Good times all around, We all will definitely go back.
