But, after a long day of “shredding” you can bet every single restaurant in the city is packed with hungry guests.
During our last visit in 2013, it was hard to find a restaurant that served us a memorable meal. Not to mention, it’s expensive: a basic dinner entrée can run you up to $30 and a kids meal at $15.
During our visit this year we’ve narrowed it down to the best-of-the-best. Restaurants where you’ll find great value for your money and, at the same time, a great delicious meal.
We’ve broken down the dining scene into two categories: Lou Lou & Jaf’s Favorites and Visitor Favorites. Whichever you choose, you can count on a fun, family Whistler dining experience.
