We almost always eat here when in Whistler, probably because we stay at Nita Lake Lodge. Besides convenience of location, the food is great! It was a 3 course prix fix.

Eight of us visited Aura Restaurant for celebratory meal while holidaying in Whistler. The service was exceptional and the food wonderful, with lots of locally sourced specialities. The setting is beautiful. We will definitely be back when next in Whistler. We also had lunch at the Cure Lounge which was very reasonable and delicious.

We always go here over Christmas. The setting on the lake is spectacular. The hotel lobby gorgeous with beautiful art and furniture. Food carefully prepared. The bar next door is also a must-do. Great vibe. We've eaten there if Aura full.

We decided to splurge for a night out and chose Aura. It really lived up to our expectations. Our server Erin was fabulous in every way possible! The food was tasty and fresh and we had a great view of the lake to eat dinner to.

Came for the set menu, had a drink in the bar beforehand, good atmosphere. The restaurant itself was quite empty although the private room was full. The view across the lake and setting were lovely and it was good to escape the rather more sterile atmosphere of Whistler Village. However, the food was mediocre - the crab cakes too salty... More

We both enjoyed the tasting menu selection. Unusual and delicious dishes beautifully presented. Use of great ingredients. In Summer the evening views would be even better out across the lake. We would definitely eat here agin on a return visit to Whistler Creekside.

This is the restaurant inside of Nita Lake Lodge. The room package we booked included hot breakfast on both mornings. We dined here for Breakfast and Dinner so I will break down the review for both: Breakfast Day 1 - I had the Nita Breakfast with sausage and potatoes - it was a good serving size and wasn't super greasy...

Tip for tourists visiting Whistler at Christmas. Book ahead for dinner and/or visit some of the restaurants like Aura, away from the village. We had an enjoyable and relaxing dinner at Aura Restaurant. The décor is elegant and well appointed. For main course our table of four had nice dishes of trout, duck and braised beef short ribs.
