A nice place to go for a delicious meal with attentive staff and welcoming ambience. The menu provides options for vegetation diets, a broad wine list, and homemade sourdough bread. Yummy!

I enjoyed a meal here with colleagues attending a conference. The atmosphere was the perfect mix of cozy and busy, and the food was outstanding. I can't wait to come back.

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.
