After a long day of skiing, sitting down to a delicious meal at the end of the day is something we look forward to everytime we head to Whistler, BC.
Whistler is a 2.5 hours drive from Vancouver. It is a pretty straight forward drive. There’s only one way up and that’s through Highway 99, better known as the Sea to Sky Highway. We’ve always driven to Whistler but you can also get there by bus, taxi, train and air. Do a quick search on the internet and you’ll see the various companies that offer bus, taxi, sedan/limo, train and air service to Whistler.
Now back to the topic at hand… our favorite restaurants in Whistler.
In no particular order, here are a few we’d recommend you visit when you are in Whistler. We didn’t bring our SLR with us this time, so here are photos of the food taken using our Nexus and Lumia 920 phones.
1 RIMROCK CAFE & OYSTER BAR
We love the seafood at this restaurant. Actually, everything’s good here! Reservations for this restaurant fills up fast, so be sure to make your reservation ahead of time before you even get to Whistler. Here’s just a sampling of what we recently enjoyed when we went there for dinner…
Sticky Toffee Pudding – don’t miss this! We don’t have pictures because we finished it before we could take one! Check out its picture on Rimrock’s website here.
Favorite dish: Roasted saddle of rabbit.
So far, the rabbit dishes we’ve had always tasted a bit dry, like chicken breast. However, this rabbit dish at Araxi is different. It is cooked perfectly and tastes nothing like chicken. Everything on the plate complement each other so well, creating a delicious and flavorful combination until the last bite!3 WILD WOOD PACIFIC BISTRO & BAR
Two words – Eggs Benedict.
The original benny (with ham) is our favorite but they also have others (salmon, crab etc…) that you can try. We’d recommend ordering at least one of the original eggs benedict though. Sorry, no pictures this time. We were just so hungry, we finished the food before we were able to take a picture of it!
