Quiet and Delicious

We went at 6:45am and really enjoyed our breakfast. Omelette was delicious and the waffles were amazing. We also had an outstanding view while we ate. Overall - delightful experience!

This Restaurant has the potential to be Whistler's finest location and Fine Dining Restaurant. Unfortunately, it fails from every angle. Set within a stunning lakeside Hotel with an amazing reputation. The restaurant is staffed by untrained waiters and waitresses, and it shows clearly.For the prices it charges and the menu is trying to present, you need top notch staff with... More

We went here for New Years. The first sitting was about $80 a person. This was a fairly reasonable price for 3 courses at a reputable restaurant. Our 10 yr old was with us and the menu was just a bit too adult and a bit too limited for her. The mains were mostly all very very good ( duck,... More

My wife and I came only for the complimentary breakfasts that came with our accommodations package, so can't comment on their other menus. But we're pretty happy with what we got on both our breakfast days. We've tried the Nita Breakfast (think typical mix of eggs anyway you want them, sausage, bacon, and toast); the potato hash on greens; and... More

This place is beautiful. From the woodworked resort to the tables in the restaurant. The view is amazing. The staff wants you to be happy there and enjoy your meal. Very beautiful plating of your food as well as a great selection.

I stayed at Nita Lake Lodge a couple of days ago and after a much needed lazy morning stumbled downstair to Aura for breakfast. We were seated right next to the window overlooking the lake and we could not have asked for a better morning. What a view! The service was prompt and very friendly and we had great coffees... More

We booked Aura for our anniversary dinner as we were staying in the hotel. We had fresh bread with butter and tapenade to start and then a daily special ravioli starter which was very colourful and tasty. Main courses were the pork chop with a side of carrots and a daily special of duck and lentils. Overall menu was small... More

We has one breakfast and one dinner here while staying at the lodge. Both were fine for the price, but overall quite average. We had better meals in town.
