Any tips on decent places for seafood, sushi or anything else in the Whistler area during the summer? Will be there for about a week in August. Thanks.

    We went to the Rimrock cafe about 5 years ago and it was delicious. I had something with lobster and scallops. At that time it was the "special occasion " place that the local whistler people suggested.

      Rimrock is a for sure must - by far the best restaurant in whistler. The food, atmosphere, presentation is amazing. Be sure to make reservations.

      For sushi I woulod hit up Sushi Village - great atmosphere, fresh fish and wonderful selection of rolls. Go early to avoid the wait.

        Sushi Village, as good as it gets in Canada. Great ownership as well.

      The Edgewater Lodge. It's a couple of minutes by car from Whistler Village, on the edge of a lake. The setting is just gorgeous and the food is terrific. Also, for Italian, either one of the Umberto restaurants is a great bet.
