Amy took care of us and guided us perfectly to the pork belly entree and lettuce wraps and if we had eaten here earlier into our holiday, I am certain we would have returned. Now with us leavening tomorrow for van couver, we are headed there for breakfast in the morning!! We find also that everyone of these servers we... More

We just spent $100 on the worst dinner in Whistler. Food was so dry we choked. Ordered bison short ribs and chicken stuffed with goats cheese. Also the olives were bitter. I am sure there is good olives out there. Pork belly was recommended by waiter but very very fatty. We are really disappointed.

Ok food at best, staff seem to all hate there jobs almost as much as there customers! We and the table next to us thought the service was a joke! I wouldn't waste my time or money going back!

Compared to Tapas at home in Portland, Ore this isn't even comparable (if in PDX go to Toro Bravo!). They suggest their Tapas are not typical "tapas size" but larger. I disagree....$17 for a chicken the size of a medium river rock (overcooked) and $9 for a small pot of veggies that were overly salted is high. Bacon wrapped tomatoes... More

Fantastic food and nice atmosphere. We sat at the bar and we're able to watch the chefs at work and they really pay a lot of attention to detail. Lettuce wraps a must. Huge portion.

We visited Elements on our last night in Whistler. The food was exceptional and every course delicious. We had the Bison ribs, pork belly, lettuce wraps and bacon wrapped tomatoes. The meat was cooked beautifully and the sauce with the pork belly and bread pudding was to die for! The restaurant itself is tucked away from main village. It is... More

This restaurant was the crowning glory of our 2 day stay at Whistler. Very well presented tapas, ranging from $ 9 - 18, with bigger than normal servings. Excellent explanation of the dishes. Wonderful attentive service. Delicious tasting food, nicely timed between courses. reasonably priced for what you're getting, we thought. Street parking. This restaurant is almost hidden away and...

I had a great meal with a party of three at Urban Tapas. Food was all good, interesting choices, and satisfactory serving sizes. What most impressed me was that they thoroughly understood how Tapas work, foresaw that we had over ordered, made a sensible suggestion to modify the order mid-meal, and were flexible about this.

This is a great find - a little place we visited for breakfast after reading reviews on Tripadvisor! We both enjoyed excellent service and fresh, fabulous food - really well prepared. We liked this place so much so that we came back the next day so we could sample other items on the menu! I splurged for their absolutely yummy... More
