The restaurant was nice and quite a romantic setting outside, but my partner did not enjoy her meal (lobster tail). I had the beef and it was fantastic. Drinks were good, and the madelines for dessert were awesome. It was a nice restaurant, but I don't think we'd return. Great experience once, though!

Our friends booked the best table in the inner restaurant - front and center with a wonderful view of the lake and mountains. The setting for this place is beautiful and the decor is comfortable and casually elegant. Service is very good and attentive without being cloying. The food was very good to excellent, though pricey. I still do ask... More

The food was cooked to perfection and presented like art. Lots of fresh vegies meant even a 3 course meal didn't feel too unhealthy. I hope I get to return soon.

We had dinner here two evenings. The first evening we had the tasting menu, CAD 69,- which is great value for money. Good recommendation as to wines to go with the menu. We decided to book table for our second evening - and a special menu was made for us. The staff is very competent and we really liked the... More

We stayed at Nita Lodge and were excited about the opportunity to try Aura. We were sitting on our balcony and notice the Chef and Kitchen staff on the roof about 4 PM. They were harvesting herbs and fresh vegetables and little did we know at the time this would be used in our meal. We were seated inside the... More

We stopped off for lunch mid-way through a circular walk from Whistler and what a surprise 'deep fried crispy poached egg. Unique in my 40 year dining experience! So impressed by lunch that we went back in the evening for dinner. beautiful setting for a romantic dinner even after 40 years of marriage. The Moon Curser Tempranillo was excellent well... More

I attended the Wine-makers dinner featuring Summer Hill Winery from Kelowna. The dinner included a five course meal with pairings from Summer Hill. The CEO of Summer Hill, Ezra Cipes, did a fantastic job of pairing wines with the food. Each food course was amazing. The tuna tostados, and the lobster with halibut were my favourites. Chef, Paul Moran explained... More

As we were staying at Nita Lake Lodge, we decided to eat at Aura on our first night in Whistler. We sat on the patio, and because it was getting late, we were given a heater and soft blankets in case we got cold. We had a stunning view of Nita Lake to enjoy as we ate our perfectly cooked... More

Unfortunately, I cannot write only amazing things about this restaurant. Our dinner was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had - fresh, quality food and great service. Highly recommended. Breakfast on the other hand was a disaster. Our server mixed up most of our order, with the rest of the family getting wrong orders. This was quickly... More

We ate here during our stay at the hotel. To be honest we weren't expecting too much, purely because we don't normally eat in the hotel restaurants. Aura was exceptional. The food and wine tasting menu was incredible. The waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. Lovely setting, overlooking the lake. Highly recommend!
