“Off the beaten path”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

This is a little gem just outside of the village that is well worth visiting. Really good, fresh, quality food and generous portions. Pretty good wine selection as well. The Chef/Owner is a real treat too. Service can be hit or miss but I put that down to the transient workforce in the resort. Not unusual.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

After 3 years of coming to Whistler to ski, we finally discovered Le Gros. Pasquel made our experience special with his personal touch of welcoming us to his restaurant. Justin was attentive too. But what made it really special was the menu. I could hardly choose which to order. The Weiner schnitzel was great as was the mushroom soup. We will be back.

“Les Gros is a wonderful find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

While skiing at Whistler we dined at Les Gros Restaurant, and what a fabulous experience in every way. The food was the best I have had in a long, long time. I had the salmon in cruet, and shrimp bisque - Wow! The owner, Pasquel, is French and knows what he is doing. He comes to your table and makes you feel like you are dining in his home. The atmosphere is wonderful, and our server, Justin was attentive and wonderful. If you are going to Whistler, don't miss this find. The restaurant is out of the village on the highway just across from Creekside. You will love it!

“Actually nowadays it's Le Gros, but it's still great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Some years ago there were two owners; now it's just Pascal, but the food and the atmosphere are still wonderful. This is a place the locals go to, a few miles down the road from the Whistler Village, on a turnoff past Creekside. You park and climb a few stairs and you're at a pleasant homey place with snow all around and lights to illuminate it; inside there's a good bar and a warm fireplace with nooks all over and an impressive collection of huge wine bottles lots of people must have enjoyed once upon a time.We've been visiting every year for over 10 years, so we've tried almost everything Pascal puts on his menus. The Alsation onion pie, the shrimp bisque, the salads, the terrines, his venison, lamb, duck, beef - there's no way to choose the wrong dish. he's a great chef and long may he prosper!

“One of the Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

We've eaten at most of the better restaurants in Whistler over the years, and Les Gros is near the top. Quiet setting, great food, full bar, good wine list, romantic. We've been there enough to know that it is always good - and the prices are very fair. I love their Rack of Lamb! On the edge of town, but worth going there.
