“Cosy, great food, lovely welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

We ate here on 1st feb for dinner. First off was a warm welcome, and the atmosphere is lovely- cosy, with a good fire going.
Plenty to choose from the menu, I had a burger and my son had steak. Both were really good. Too full for dessert, but we will be back, before we leave big white.

“upmarket but still good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

I find this place much nicer for adults and couples etc, compared to some other places on big white - the lovely fireplace, cosy bar and quality of food means it tends to attract more couples, adult groups than noisy kids. the service, wine and food were all perfect and lovely menu items that are good portion sizes (eg - not HUUGE). highly recommend for the food, cosy fireplace in the dining area and overall ambience/service.

“Good food and cozy atmoshere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

I liked this restraunt because there are tables close to the fireplace and you can look out the windows at the scenery and ski hill. It gets very busy at lunch time. Overall the food was pretty good.

“Amazing menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

We drooled over the lunch offerings (goulash anyone??) but only ate dinner there one night. Can get a little pricey ($50 for a large steak) but there are more reasonably priced items for dinner (~$22 for seafood pasta dish that was fabulous). Excellent service and top notch wine list both from offerings and reasonable prices. Also appreciated the owner of the restaurant running to the store to buy the wine that I drank there on a couple occasions when they discovered they were out. Now that is service!

“Fantastic all round!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We had such a great time here! It is a little pricier than other places on the mountain but totally worth it!! Our waitress was so accommodating and very knowledgable about the food, and beverages. Our food was amazing! So happy with everything and will definitely be back to try the alcoholic hot chocolates - they sound amazing!!
