WHISTLER RESTAURANT DINING GUIDE

With over 100 Whistler eateries, you won’t be short on options when it comes to dining. Whistler has a wonderful variety of restaurants to suit every palate and budget. The wide variety features everything from local delis, pubs, cafes and bistros, to fine dining establishments with world-famous chefs. Evening dress in Whistler is ‘resort casual’, so dressing up for dinner is perfectly acceptable but not required.

If you’d like to bookend your dining experience with drinks and live entertainment, Whistler is known for its après ski scene and nightlife. Once you’ve finished a day of play, enjoy a couple of pints at one of the many bars accompanied by sunshine and live music before heading to dinner. After dinner, enjoy the bustling pubs before you throw on your dancing shoes and party. There are four nightclubs in the village, and all are hosted by world-class DJs who will have you dancing the night away to beats from the 80s and beyond.

You will not be disappointed, whatever your taste for fun.
