We went to this restaurant on recommendation and weren't disappointed: 5 course menu at $39! (Sun-thu). Excellent service, very tasty food and good wine. Later we heard this restaurant used to be very expensive, but we think we got very good value for money!

I had high expectations of this restaurant and found that these were surpassed.

The service was extremely efficient and the staff all incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine. They were also professional without the 'stuffiness' you can sometimes get in some higher end places. Nothing was too much trouble and we didn't feel rushed at all which was just as well as we chose the 5 course menu!

We also chose to visit the Vodka tasting which is a room made of ice and is around minus 32 degrees. You have to wear Polar expedition coats (obviously supplied by the restaurant) and it is not only educational but great fun!

The food was excellent, the five course meal was small portions but just right given the five courses!

I would definitely recommend this place and would visit again when in Whistler.

The tasting menu was amazing. the service was incredible, but the MUST DO is the wine cellar with the champagne sabering and the Frozen vodka tasting room. I went for business but can't wait to take my husband!

We were recommended to go here and it was a bit underwhelming. We sat on the patio and just weren't blown away by the service or the food. Not sure that we would go back...

We recently really enjoyed a five course tasting menu at the Bearfoot Bistro in Whistler. Staring in the wine cellar for a spot of champagne sabering, we enjoyed an amazing five course meal complete with nitro ice-cream and a vodka tasting ice room experience. Next time I'm in Whistler I'll be definitely going there again!
