This restaurant really goes above and beyond! We had a few courses here and were really impressed. We had fantastic wine and the food quality is outstanding especially all being locally sourced. I highly recommend this restaurant to all foodies and to all people who love good food!

Reasonable menu - the chicken and chorizo casserole was good. My wife asked for her beef to be cooked medium - it came out too red for her, and it was still a little rare after a bit more cooking. Foie gras was good - both my daughter and my wife had this. My charred cucumber salad was ok -... More

I'm not sure if it is the amazing ambience, the quality service, the family feel that the staff puts out or not to be left last, but the food!! As a chef myself I cannot say enough about the quality of the food, the quality of the ingredients or the techniques used to present such fine food. We allowed the... More

Around CAN 30 per plate and escarce portions. After having dinner we had to buy somewhere else a slice of pizza to finish our meal. Smelled of fried food, stinked our clothes and hair after being there. Definitely not one of Whistlers best options as suggested in Tripadvisor

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.

Description
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.
