Whistler restaurants

My bf and I are heading to Whistler over Christmas...

I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for some good restaurants? I have not been to Whistler in years and I have googled some restaurants, but it is hard to tell if they are good with no personal recommendations...

Looking for something a little different, causal, good atmosphere, etc.

We enjoy all type of food but are looking for something a little more than a steak-house type place...

Cost is not a concern.

Thanks

If you are around for lunch or something check out Splitz Grill for a great burger.

please, please please... whatever you do, do not eat at Chinese Bistro! Its the one right beside a japanese restaurant on top of showcase store and right behind the zoggs stand. I was craving chinese food when i was up in whistler so i tried that place. Prices are as expensive as kirin but the food was crap and so was the service. I urge you to stay away.

for good restaurants it depends on what meal of the day.

Breakfast:
-BG urban grill
-Cafe Montagne (awesome crepes and waffles)

Lunch:
-Earls (pulled pork sandwich is pretty good)
-Splitz Grill
-Bearfoot
-Zoggs

Dinner:
-Araxi
-21 steps

Most of my favourites already mentioned:

Cafe Montagne for breakfast
Araxi/Rim Rock Cafe nice for dinner, but can get pricey.
I like going to Dubhlinn Gate (Irish Pub) for lunch or Zogg's for a quick bite.

Was up at Whistler this past summer and tried out Cafe Montagne for breakfast.
The food was delicious and service was top notch. I don't know how busy they are during the winter season, but during the summer, it was busy. So make sure you head there early.

+1 for Araxi.

If you want a more casual pub atmosphere, go to Citta, right in the middle of the Village. Some wicked pub food there.

If you don't mind a short drive (15-20 minutes) there are a couple of good places in Pemberton. The Wood Bistro, right behind the Petro Canada when you come into town, is fantastic, and they have the most incredible crab-and-mushroom bisque.

Oh... and for breakfast: Southside Diner, creekside. Takes "greasy spoon" to a whole new delicious level.

I liked araxi better.
Bearfoot is suppose to have a better wine list, but I don't drink wine.

For the price between the three ill take Hy's although the Hy's in whistler feels more like a Keg than the Van location
