Beautiful little restaurant with amazing food and a focus on quality ingredients sourced as locally as possible. While not a vegan restaurant they still have enough options to make me feel like I had a choice in my meal, and their customer service was stellar...More

This restaurant is located right next to Pinnacle Hotel Whistler. Food is fantastic and service is excellent. It’s got a few tables out in the patio, it’s to die for when sitting outside having dinner and wine especially in the summer time.

A recent visit with our son and girlfriend did not disappoint. They have a varied menu to choose from. While we chose to share several dishes, we agreed we loved the lentil salad, the short ribs and spiced cauliflower the most. Atmosphere is relaxed yet...More

Our dinner experience at Alta Bistro was sublime. The service by our lovely Czech waitress was just the right combination of attentiveness and privacy. She knew the menu perfectly and answered all our questions with a smile and gave advice without being pushy. The food...More

Locally inspired cuisine set in a casual bistro atmosphere. Chef Nicholas Cassettari combines his classic training, top tier experience, and world travels with the best of B.C.'S bounty to create the fine flavours at Alta Bistro. Service is casual and prompt in the dining room and bar. The wine list is French focused, with the best of B.C. As well as international selections (many by the glass) with Enomatic machines dispensing fine and eclectic selections to pair with Alta's cuisine. Mixologists behind our bar craft some of Whistler's finest cocktails. The cozy bistro atmosphere is lively and welcoming. Reservations are a must.
