My partner and I were directed here and to the Harvest Menu by our hotel concierge and it was a good direction! We each had the squash soup, the salad, and the snapper; while I recall being fairly satisfied, the meal wasn't a KAPOW knockout....More

It's been a long time since we've been to Alta Bistro, for no reason, because last time was great.... This time was amazing as well. The shoulder season deal is great value, the food was delicious all round, and the service was exceptional. Our server,...More

Up in Whistler for a vacation. We always come by Alta Bistro for at least one meal and we're never disappointed. Food is always good and the atmosphere is second to none.

I simply keep coming to this place every time we are in Whistler. There are so many touristy restaurants in the village that it's hard to find something good. Alta Bistro is locally owned and operated, the people really care about what they do. The...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.
