Romantic Whistler Restaurants
What's a romantic getaway without memorable meals? Fine dining can almost be a vacation in and of itself. A meal where conversation flows over courses - and hours - can make you remember why you first fell in love. Taking time to enjoy fine food and wine is a Whistler tradition you'll want to be part of your Whistler getaway. Get to know each other all over again at these romantic Whistler restaurants.
Located in the heart of Town Plaza, Whistler Village's longest standing fine dining room features inventive cuisine with an emphasis on local and organic foods. For 31 years Araxi has been defining culinary excellence in our mountain resort. The kitchen, under executive's chef James Walt's direction, has never been better. Their seasonal menus highlight the best of what BC has to offer. A simple dish that will blow you away is their handmade gnocchi with truffle oil.
Located in the upper village, La Rúa is a locals' favorite. The menu is definitely West Coast, but there's a Spanish-influence that elevates the expected to the sublime. Lamb is prepared with loving care here and fish gets a light touch. Smart, sophisticated cuisine with rustic roots and the best possible raw ingredients, this is food every visitor should experience at least once. Cool piece of trivia: La Rúa's affable owner, Mario, was a bullfighter in his youth.
The Rimrock Cafe
Great seafood is synonymous with The Rimrock Café, but really there's not a dish on the menu that isn't deftly prepared. Excellent food served in a chalet-inspired room makes dining at this off-the-beaten-path spot a must. Cozy seating, warm soft lighting and service that is remarkable, attentive but unobtrusive, knowledgeable and just plain
Aura, the newest restaurant in our Top 4, is located at the foot of Nita Lake, Acclaimed for its Pacific cuisine with an emphasis on organic and local. This lakeside formal dining room features spectacular attention to detail, warm tones and fantastic lighting both relaxing and romantic. Top off the evening with a nightcap by the fireplace at the adjacent Cure lounge. Bonus: Aura is just steps from all three Lodging Ovations properties.
