I was going to order the saag but it had a strange burnt flavour so instead I ordered the butter chicken and it was completely tasteless. There was not enough sauce to cover the rice and I had to pay extra for the naan. Way overpriced for bad quality. Don't waste your time going here. Stick with the other Indian place in the village basement foodcourt.
I am soooo glad I was introduced to Second Cup. Bit hard to find, tucked away by the Hilton, but conveniently close to the lifts and bike park. Look for Lululemon as Second Cup is right next door. In the summer they provide outdoor entertainment. Bring your laptop as they have free WiFi indoors.
Love their cold Hot Chocolates, and Chai London Fog (which I think should be re-named Mumbai Fog). I've never been a coffee drinker, so to find a coffee shop that satisfies my cravings is wonderful. The staff are great too in Whistler - bubbly and you almost think they are mistaking you for someone else they know because they are so genuinely friendly. Someone knows how to hire the right staff.
I often have their muffins - love the carrot, zucchini and raisin with walnuts on top. There's always newsapers to read, and comfy leather benches.
Only problem - place needs a renovation. Tiles falling off, paint peeled, bit outdated colours. Sounds like management knows, but great thing is it doesn't hold staff back from ensuiring you have a welcoming and relaxing time there.
Located underground with the Village 8 Cinema's, just across from the Eddie Bauer clothing store in the main Whistler village.
Home style cooking, very genuine friendly service (not pretentious) and reasonably priced. They have weekly specials, yet their menu prices are a good deal also. Good size portions, hot plates (that's always a plus in our eyes), and very comfortable leather seating (big plus again).
You won't go wrong at Three Below. Our family ate there for the first time this month, and now we know why it's been a local's favorite for a long time. We work in the food industry, and have no hesitation in recommending this place for a relaxing comfortable evening that includes satisfying food and really nice service. Thank you Three Below - we'll be back soon!
We live in Whistler, and this is the one restaurant our family visits time and time again.
Consistently warm welcoming smiley service. Your meal includes fresh breads, soup or salad, and good selection of great on-site freshly made pasta. Good luck saving room for their delicious desserts (tiramisu rates 5/5). Seating is limited, but often the line-up is for their popular take-out so don't be discouraged to arrive to a line-up...the wait is worth it. Be patient too locating the restaurant for the first time...it's around the back of the Marketplace IGA, next door to 7-11.
Looking for great value, great service, tasty food and a sincere welcome ambiance? See you at Pasta Lupino! Families welcome too!
If you want a burger but think you deserve so much better than MacDonald, then try this place. Basically like Subway, you build your own burger here. My husband picked almost everything to be on his burger, and I don't know how he made it fit into his mouth. Ingredients are fresh, burger is nice, juicy, and flavourful. We came here for dinner but should've saved it for next day's lunch - because, even though the food itself is good and satisfying, it is after all a fast food joint. Not somewhere you come with your hubby for a quality meal time.
It's our "must" stop when we are in Whistler. We just have to have their Superior Veggie Burger. It's so fresh and tasty and very satisfying even for a non-vegetarian like us. The spicy mayo gives it a good kick. The place is very small and tend to be crowded, but you can always take the sandwich out and eat it anywhere you like.
Our innkeeper recommended this place. It is at the back of IGA - very hard to find if you are a tourist. Perhaps this place offers one of the best deals you can find in Whistler. For $11.95, you can have a basket of soft bread, green/ceaser salad, fresh pasta with home made sauce of your choice. We could go back every night. The place is tiny but comfortable and homey. The service could be slow when busy but very pleasant nonetheless. Highly recommend.
Solo dining experience at Il Caminetto last night. Haven't been there in a few years, recent renovations to the lounge look good to me.
Sat at the bar (only one at the bar), promptly set up with everything I'd need for dinner.
Review the wine list (about 15 wines by the glass), and after 6 or 7 seven minutes, make my choice. Oh, sorry., we're out of that. gggrrrrr. Give me a Bailey's instead.
Ordered a simple Gnocci with Sausage. Came quickly and was tasty. Very fresh, adequate portion. My preference (as seen in previous reviews) is to have incredients be large enough I can see what I'm eating, and having larger pieces of Sausage, as opposed to ground Sausage the consistency of ground beef would have been preferred. Good though. Accompanied by good fresh bread, with butter so hard it can't be spread ... why can't restaurants get this right?
The enjoyed a Fladgate 10 year old while listening to the bartender (otherwise a good guy who did a fine job) complaining to the manager about 5 feet away from me about how someone or other is disrespecting him. Hey, I'm CLEARLY within earshot ... sure I'm a solo diner in your lounge, and I'm not going to be spending $250, but c'mon.
Finished with a nice Limoncello, with the manager wandering over to tell me a little more about it then I already knew. Didn't mind that.
Good experience, maybe to a repeat next time I'm up here, but lots of other choices.
This is my favourite restaurant in Whistler. I have pratically tried everything on the menu over the years. We can taste and smell fresh ingridients without any false pretense or imitation like other fine dining restaraunts such as Quattros and Bearfoot Bistro. The wine list is excellent as well. A very quite ambience and seems like a nice getaway from Whistler in general. Four Seasons continually stands out in overall layout, ambience we get a very cozy yet contemporary feel in fiftytwo Eighty. Great work chefs.
I have visited and lived in Whistler for a few years now. Occasionally, after a game of golf or a lunch on the patio seems decent for the clubhouse but I am not sure about the dinner as it's too pricey for it's value. The sunday brunches seemed very greasy as well and I found it to be overpriced by a mile. A good overall ambience and a quite getaway from other village restaurants. I would visit again only after a round of golf.
Here's the only review you need to read! I'm 27 years old and my wife and I ate here over the weekend. I tell you my age because if you like trendy you'll like this place. It's got a very young feel to this place. It's definitely not a place where you bring your kids. I don't have any so it's not like I'm gonna make recommendations. It was a very quick walk from the Delta Hotel we stayed and it was a good thing. Drinks were very reasonably priced and we took full advantage! The food was amazing, (and also very well priced) we had Stuffed Mushrooms, we had the Grilled "Butler" Steak as well as the Ahi Tuna. The web site doesn't seem to be updated. I didn't see much of the same things at the restaurant as I did beforehand. Service was no problem, they were very tentative. Very friendly and he always seemed to be there when we needed him. We sat at the bar as the house was full yet our server was still all over the place. No complaints here!!! I am definitely gonna go back!!!! Thank you Elements!
Outstanding value in Whistler sounds like a bit of an oxymoron, but Pasta Lupino is the real deal. Where can you get a bowl of pasta for lunch for a little over six bucks? Let alone Whistler. Let alone fresh, house made pastas and sauces. For $6.35 you get a bowl of pasta with a choice of three house sauces - we had tomato and basil. We also added a salsiccia sausage for an extra couple of bucks. The pasta was simple and basic, the sauce was flavourful. The bread that accompanied was warm and very fresh. Truly great value here...and a steal for Whistler. The downside? Only about six tables so can probably get to be a wait sometimes.
I should start off by saying that I am not a picky person, but the food experience at this restaurant was not acceptable for Earls standards. First of all, it took 15 mintues to be seated despite the fact that the restaurant was pretty much dead with the exception of a few people sitting on the patio. The waitresses are very unorganized and flock around like headless chickens. We were sat beside a flower pot and there was so many seats available, we had bees and birds surround our food on so many occasions that we forgot what we were waiting for. Finally, one useless waitress came along and took our order. The food was okay, but nobody asked how it was until we were almost done, the waitress forgot to bring extra sauce we asked for even though we reminded her twice, our water was not refilled until we payed the bill, she also asked me if i wanted "frings and tobacco" wtf is that? I wonder how these people get any jobs, especially at a tourist attraction such as Whistler. Obviously the tip was a zero with a bad service comment on the side.....by the way she brought the sauce when i was done eating our food, and we waited for the bill for 20 minutes again for no reason. We have been to this place two times and both of the experiences were terrible, I dont know how human resources drafts and trains these people but this a joke... the waitresses dont have the iq of a 3rd grader. This place is totally useless and I dont understand why anyone would ever want to dine here and pay those prices if u can go to a local crack town place and get yourself something for a lower price, or go to starbucks for a tea and a muffin....
Ate here on 9/12/09. The decor looked like it hasn't changed since the late seventies (including the background music). The menu had some promising looking items but the food was strictly average, for the price I would've appreciated more quality over quantity. The service was actually below average, only 2 servers for the whole room on a Saturday night? Will not go back, will go back to the Rim Rock Cafe instead!
I've visited the Wildflower on three different occasions when I visited Whistler. The first time I had a very delightful meal with several friends, when we all tried each other's dishes and left satisfied. Our server was extremely attentive and professional. We all enjoyed ourselves very much.
The second time I went for dinner again with my boyfriend and loved our food. My steak was cooked to perfection and I enjoyed every bite of it. As a matter of fact, it was so good that my boyfriend kept stealing food from my plate as he couldn't get enough of that delectable taste!
Third time we went for the breakfast buffet and got a table in their lovely patio. The atmosphere was so nice that we almost didn't want to leave! The variety of food was a bit lacking considering the high prices charged; however, the freshness of food, friendly service as well as welcoming atmosphere brought yet another memorable experience.
This is not a full service joint, so if thats what you are looking for, you will be disappointed.
If you are looking for great burgers and great food, then this is a great place to try out! Its not cheap, but the value for the dollar is great. The burgers are made to order fresh, so it takes a few minutes, the wait is worht it once you sink your teeth into these "homestyle" burgers. There are numerous fresh/homemade toppings you can dress your burger with, from the standards to the exotics.
The fries are also great!
Check it out next time you're in Whistler.
When visiting Whistler, my spouse and I visited OSF.
Compared to most restaurants we ate at during our 4 days in Whistler, this was the best value. The food was pretty good and the value was incomparable.
We had the spaghetti with spicy meat sauce and the seafood fettuccini. Salad/Soup, coffee, dessert and bread were all complimentary. You won't leave hungry.
We had a way better experience here than the awfull experience we had at OSF in Langley. i'd definitely go back for an economical meal.
Our server was fantastic. We were travelling with our infant and our server was very friendly and patient with us.
We didn't have huge expectations when we chose to eat here. We were simply looking for a quick bite on their nicely situated patio.
We looked over the menu and decided on a couple burgers. After waiting for a good 5 minutes to be greeted by our server, we tried to make eye contact with a server in our section. She was super friendly and came over to take our order. Thats when things got weird, another server who was nowhere to be seen a few minutes earlier came out to the patio and debated with the server who actually greeted us as to who would be serving us for lunch. Their conversation was cordial, but the fact that they debated this in front of us was troubling. The friendly server who actually greeted us ended up serving us and the service was decent.
The food was tasty, but like most things in Whistler, the value was lacking.
An interesting evening. The handcrafted martinis were enjoyable but a surprising $18.00 each! I stuck to the lobster special ($30.00) which was tasty but not exceptional. My partner easily added on another $30 to the $40 prix fixe. He added fish to his salad and had the sole. The sole de-boning was quite an experience! The wine list was extensive and expensive. The service was excellent and the staff friendly. We did get to see the impressive wine cellar
I knew that this restaurant might disappoint me just from reading the comments below. But I thought why not give it a try since I was in Whistler for Ziptrek and Bungee Jump.
So I was really happy after I did my first bungee jump and thought having cheese fondue for the first time as a little celebration!
First of all I have to say that I didn't like it when I stepped in the door when the server greeted us. He was emotionless I'd say. I didn't feel welcoming but I thought hey I don't yet, just wait till the end!
So the menu was a bad design (as a designer I like checking out restaurant menus), little disappointment there already. The prices were... well high but affordable for 2 people in their 20s. (traditional cheese fondue with 2 min order per fondue is $26/person which means if you want to eat it, at least pay $26 x 2 = $52 + tax & tips) Anyway, we ordered it anyway just to try since I've been always wanted to try for years!
Here, a basket of bread came, alright not too bad. THEN the vegetables came.... HUGE disappointment! just RAW broccoli, RAW cauliflower and carrots!!?? So here's what we had: a plate of raw vegies + bread + pot of cheese with very BAD after taste to it! Then we decided to order the cold cuts by adding $14.95! Just because we wanted some meats!
The plate of meats came with some pickles... I don't know what to say anymore. All I can say is that the food SUCKED!!
One more thing I want to point out here is that the service was HORRIBLE! I am NOT kidding you here! Especially the manager guy was absolutely NOT loving his job. He had no smile on, he had no friendliness at all! And the other server was a BIT better BUT still BAD consider that this restaurant is a PRICEY french restaurant I think I should expect a lot MORE than what I got here.
Definitely a NO-NO to all of you!
