How often can you say you ate dinner at the top of a mountain among snow capped mountains! Not that often! We went up for the Salon Bake and had a great time! First of all have you had BC salmon??? That's amazing all on its own!!! But taking the gondola to the top and sitting out on picnic benches... More

Normally, on the slopes of North American ski resorts, you only get the usual burgers, soups, and salads. Here they had a great selection of food including asian or indian food! My favourite was the Pho-like soups. They were filling and warmed me up. A perfect combo when you go skiing. Thanks! And when you have a season's pass or... More

Harsh, maybe! However, compared with Europes mountain restaurants this building is horrendous and more likened to a cattle market. Too many people fighting for dirty tables still cluttered with remainders of chips & red sauce! It's hard to find anything tasty or healthy to eat, a hot mug of milk flavoured with coffee is served in a builders mug! Not... More

A very modern and interesting hilltop restaurant. Can be reached via the gondola - so great for those not skiing as well. Good location for group RDV Fab views and 3 different restaurant choice (in-side or outside) a cafe bar and in-store shops. It is busy at lunch time so aim to eat early or late!

Extensive choice for skiers' refreshments at the heart of Whistler mountain. Not cheap or too expensive. Gets very busy at peak times and finding a seat can take a few minutes - especially for large groups.

First class mountain top facility for both skiers and sight seeing alike, restaurants, bars, rest areas and a shop.

The food was really good and the ambiance great as you listen to ski adventures. But it is pricey as you can imagine with supplies being brought up to the top of the mountain. Be prepared to pay 'large' if you are on a budget, it's a treat.

If you take the gondola to the top of Whistler Mountain, this is the lodge at the very top...right next door to Peak 2 Peak. This is a great place to grab a pitcher of beer and some poutine. We actually split one pitcher of local beer and a couple orders of poutine. Everything was very tasty and the view... More

There is a nice view from the Roundhouse but it is the biggest, most crowded place to get lunch on either mountain. It's cafeteria style, with a large variety of foods available. Go before or after the lunch rush to get a seat by the windows with a view.
