Our family dinner of 13 all agreed that the meal and service at the Alta Bistro on the weekend was a highlight of our Whistler Crankworx experience. I and 5 others had the Pork Belly dinner and all said it was outstanding. My wife and 3 others had the Snapper and argued with us that their Snapper was better. All... More

I dined tonight at Alta Bistro and the meal was superb. I chose the Chef's 5 course tasting menu and all dishes were beautifully plated. They looked great and tasted even better. The service was friendly and knowledgeable. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant when you are in Whistler.

Yes the food is expensive and yes the food is of high quality and in balance with the price, but portions are not ok. We had starters and main courses and left with hunger to get a dessert else where. Maybe if you took the 5 courses meal you would have enough to eat but even my wife who is... More

Our daughter, a foodie, selected Alta Bistro, for its ambiance, menu and reasonable prices. She hit a home run. Our cassoulet of chorizo and smoked chicken with krispy kale and spinach dust was excellent. The piping hot plates were appreciated so we could serve ourselves from the bowl and maintain the dishes' warmth. Our son in law's wagyu beef and... More

We ate here on our first night in Whistler and are so glad we chose the Alta Bistro. We ate on the patio and had a wonderful three course meal. The staff is friendly and they know their food. Give it a try!

Locally inspired cuisine set in a casual bistro atmosphere. Chef Nicholas Cassettari combines his classic training, top tier experience, and world travels with the best of B.C.'S bounty to create the fine flavours at Alta Bistro. Service is casual and prompt in the dining room and bar. The wine list is French focused, with the best of B.C. As well as international selections (many by the glass) with Enomatic machines dispensing fine and eclectic selections to pair with Alta's cuisine. Mixologists behind our bar craft some of Whistler's finest cocktails. The cozy bistro atmosphere is lively and welcoming. Reservations are a must.
