Great Après-ski experience with Live entertainment. We started with a cocktail, a nicely chilled Chardonnay, then a Chenin Blanc and a Pinot Noir. The wines were presented in beautiful RIEDEL wine-glasses which enhances the wine-taste big time. Nam, our very friendly waiter, guided us to...build our charcuterie board with Tirol speck, Spanish Chorizo, Ahi Tuna, Camembert, grilled portabella and two spreads with spinach, artichoke and garlic. This creation did taste fantastic especially with the skillet bread. And we liked the atmosphere.More

One of the few restaurants on the hill not owned and operated by the Big White conglomerate, this cozy yet very central establishment has a different vibe from everything else BW... a good vibe. Like, chill, relaxed, low key, casual, homey type of vibe. We...spent hours on the coffee shop side (on the right when entering) so cannot comment on the restaurant side. Our breakfast was done well if you like the following: very crispy 3 or 4 rashes of bacon, sourdough bread (no other option) and large chunks of potato hash (not the puny store bought kind). Eggs are done to your specs so cannot go wrong there. Service was friendly and up to par and the atmosphere was warm and cozy... hence our 3 hour breakfast. Coffee kept coming and the baked goods were available to purchase piecemeal. Price is resort average so don't expect any deals but once in a while I feel like I would rather support the local small businesses anyway... Big White has enough of our money. 4 stars.More

Having had an excellent experience last year, we were keen to return with friends to have dinner at the globe this year. The evening was marred by the fact that my 24 year old son, despite having photo ID (driving licence) and verification from his...parents that the ID was his, was not allowed a glass of wine. Having been to a number of other restaurants at Big White this week, we had not encountered such puritanical restrictions. Clearly the Globe must have a poor reputation for under age drinking. Needless to say we will not be returning.More

I am so sorry your experience last week was marred by us upholding the laws of British Columbia by ID'ing anyone "who looks under 35". Whilst I know this can be so frustrating for overseas visitors who may be unaware of it, we are required...More

Went for lunch and was recommended to try Chef Josh’s ramen bowl. It was spectacular, tasty and very satisfying. Keep it up.

I've never been a tapas fan, so read this with that in mind. We arrived for supper with kids and grandkids. Monday nights kids eat free, so consider a reservation if you go. A variety of tapas was ordered and the kids loved the food....The patatas bravas, Korean cauliflower, bison meatballs and Italian meatballs were the favourites. Even my wife who dislikes potatoes liked the Patatas, cauliflower was a big hit as well. The kids had the s'mores for dessert and they were a big hit. Service was very good, dishes hot and well timed. Atmosphere was nice and laid back. Still not a tapas convert,, nothing to do with the restaurant.More

We went to Globe for our last night in Big White as Tripadvisor ranks it as the top 1 restaurant in the village. We expected a great meal, unfortunately we left feeling quite disappointed! It's a great effort on the restaurant's part to have a...menu with vegan/vegetarian options, but in my opinion -- it's better not to provide these options if the kitchen can't make it work. We had the beetroot bruschetta, which was cubbed beetroot on white toast with lots of balsamic vinegar over the toast. It was totally dry, too sweet and tasted a bit like cardboard. I did have a salmon tapa. I think the restaurant has tried to infuse too many international flavours into the dishes which sometimes makes the dish wonderful, but in this case -- it didn't work. It was like the restaurant was trying too hard to be very fusion-based/international but failed to do so. We also had their pizza which was better than all the other dishes, so my recommendation would be to stick to what you're good at! Pizzas which everyone love. I can't complain about the service as everyone was very helpful, but in terms of the food -- we definitely won't be going back.More

The average for a Tapas dinner with wine would be $30-$50 per person... Apologies for the huge delay in the response but this notification has only just popped up!!
