After spending three weeks on the mountain, we were sad to leave this place! The team at Black Diamond took such good care of us and went out of their way to make us feel at home. Apart from the great food, it was the little things like bringing out my green tea with a side of lemon and honey... More

This was our second year at Big White and because we enjoyed our meal last year we decided to eat here again. Our starter was excellent. We had the scallops and it was a very generous serving and they were cooked to perfection. For our main course we had seafood pasta. It was a bit too much food but very... More

One of the nicer restaurants in Big White for atmosphere and the food was fine but not exciting. Wine by the glass was pricey but did feature a good selection. Service was above average.

Had a lovely lunch here after skiing all morning. The atmosphere was very nice with a fireplace in the middle of the main area. Service was very good with a nice selection of craft beer on tap. The place was 75% full which made things very comfortable. The homemade turkey sandwich was very good and the guests I was with... More

Service was good although it was not busy. Started with the charcuterie board. Nice selection. The ribs were very good and a large portion so had to take the rest which made a good addition to dinner the following evening. Was hoping to have the seafood chowder which I had before and enjoyed but it is only available at lunch.

The Black Diamond has enviable location with a large dining room & decent sized bar. It just needs more patrons based on my visit. It is not bad but I just found other options after eating here on the 1st night in the resort. Either the staff need to crank it up a level or alternatively maybe just turn the... More

My husband and I ate at this restaurant on Valentine's day as we hadn't booked in time to get into the other restaurants we wanted to try, so we thought we would give this place a go. There was only a $69pp 3 course meal available for dinner, due to being Valentine's day, however given the day manager was so... More
