Summer in Whistler is just around the corner and it's almost time to start dining outside. Many of the restaurants in Whistler have fantastic little hidden patios to enjoy a light lunch or a full multi-course dinner.
Quattro restaurant has a long thin patio that is surrounded by forest which makes for a very private and intimate dining experience. Bavaria has a small European street side feel patio tucked away towards the back of the restaurant, perfect for a mini escape to the Alps. Kypriaki Norte, a mediterranean restaurant, never fails to have some of the best flowers on it's patio just a hop from the village square. Flipside restaurant has it's regular patio in the North village square open already and will be renovating the bar in the coming weeks so that it can serve both guests inside and outside. Undoubtedly, it will be a great spot for a casual lunch and beer. The FireRock Lounge patio at the Westin hotel is one of Whistler's best kept secrets for pre-dinner cocktails with it view over the driving range to Rainbow Mountain in the West. Finally, the Bearfoot Bistro restaurant is modifying their patio from last year to be a Spanish beach side inspired atmosphere. With it's West facing angle it will surely be a favourite for appetizer in the early evening sunshine.
So get off the main village stroll and discover the fantastic array of hidden patios at restaurants in Whistler.
