The Crystal hut (at the top of the Crystal chair on Blackcomb) was a great treat. Another couple at our hotel told us to go there and they were right! We had to wait about 30 minutes for our food, but who would have thought you could get a wood stove cooked salmon dish and steak sandwich in a small hut on top of the hill!

This place is marvellous, if you have the patience to wait for a table, that is. But the crowds are a positive sign! Waffles here are legendary! I recommend the waffle with everything. Yum! For mains, I had the steak sandwich, which was a bit of a wait, but 100% worth it. Best steak I have ever tasted! Done to perfection, served with garlic bread and roasted veggies, it was just what was needed on a cold day! Good value too! Yum yum yum!

Lunch at the Crystal Hut is not to be missed! A snug and warm alpine cabin with great food and amazing views. And after, a run down Rock and Roll is the perfect finish!

$150 per person is too much in my opinion for good cheese fondue but the rest of the meal being very mediocre blanched veggies and sirloin chunks boiled in vegetable broth. I felt like I was at camp, not a super-expensive restaurant. Staff was friendly and well-intentioned but they can't overcome the mediocrity of the food. a group of for is looking at a $750 bill including wine. Much better value spent at other top restaurants in town. Big cat ride was fun but not worth the average food to me.
