Enjoyed a tasty lunch here with my ski class. I ordered the Thai Larb - Pork Mince, veggies and spicy sauce which you wrap in lettuce leaves. Delicious and spices were fragrant and authentic. Would definitely recommend.

Relaxing atmosphere, lovely fire places at the tables and good service. Drinks can be expensive, but the craft beer by the jug was good value.

We booked an outside table to watch the Fire and Ice show, we had good service from staff and the food was reasonable. The heaters were great and helped as were seated outside so we could watch the Fire and Ice Show. An enjoyable evening.

Great location and an excellent deck with fire pits and heaters. The food is great- a bit pricey but typical Whistler prices. The nachos, lettuce wraps and flat breads are all great and good for sharing. Very generous portions.

Have been to lunch several times and to apres-ski several times. Consistently good service and food. Its crowded for apres-ski but that's the atmosphere you want. Lots of fun, good food and cold beer. Worth going.

We visited here twice during our stay, once straight of the slopes and once a late evening. In my opinion, this has the edge over Longhorns as an Apres spot as its warmer (the seats are cushioned and the heaters moveable) and inside it has...More
