“Sandwiches on steroids”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

They prepare the best subway-type sandwiches, with a ton of protein and accompaniments. So large, they are a good option to share, if you want. Very helpful staff. Lots of seating choices, inside or out, in the upper village.

“Expensive and not dog friendly”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

As seasonal residents of Whistler, we have eaten at Portobello many times. It is self-service. Many employees have worked there for years and are efficient and helpful. The food is expensive for the quality but the environment and the setting at Blackcomb has always been a plus. The restaurant has ample indoor and outdoor seating. Until recently, a plus for locals and tourists alike is that you could sit at the patio tables with your dog. However, recently, despite other dogs on the patio, we were informed that dogs are no longer allowed. So, if you have a dog, go to one of the many other self-service eateries in Whistler where your dog is welcome.

“Awesome sandwiches”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

You get to build your own sandwich with lots of choices as to bread, sauces, meats and cheeses. They were a little bit shy on available vegetables but if there was too much more in the sandwich, I would have been really tough to eat.
A whole sandwich can easily feed two people if you are not starving, especially if you ave some of their fish chowder which was very tasty.
