We came here for a meal in January upon a recommendation and, my word, it did not disappoint. The whole experience was excellent. We arrived early and relaxed in the hotel bar lounge prior to our meal and tried some great cocktails. The meal, in the restaurant was amazing. Everything from the service to the wine to the food itself... More

Aura provides a special restaurant atmosphere that is supported by a very friendly and supportive staff and over the top menu. There were four in our party and we all raved about our Entres. Experience it to believe it.

We loved eating breakfast here while staying at the Nita Lake Lodge. The produce was very fresh and presentation of the food had extra marks.

I had the 3-course special menu for CAD39 (or was it CAD49) the other night. I had crab cakes, the salad and pork belly. It was too much food - I couldn't finish it! The food was delicious and service was great. Pity we didn't have enough time to go back for more.

This is a nice restaurant tucked into the Nita Lake Lodge - Whistler Creekside (add $15 cab ride each way if staying in Whistler Village) We enjoyed the Wild Mushroom chowder (bisque would be a more appropriate description). I had the 6oz Tenderloin, as did my buddy Derek - very nice. Sorry - can't remember what the ladies had :(... More
