Bar Oso | Dining in Whistler

Bar Oso screams hip, fun, and gorgeous food. As part of Vancouver's TopTable Group, Bar Oso is just what Whistler needs. A place for gathering with friends for après, to enjoy not only very good tapas but top notch beverages ranging from wines to cocktails and so much more. Finally the restaurant scene in Whistler is climbing its way up to more-than-mediocre standards. Bar Oso definitely brings a finer side of dining to Whistler, even when it's simply a bar for small plates. Their charcuterie board (fresh & cured board) is absolutely massive but it is without a doubt a must-have. You get a mix of salumis, pâté, rillette, terrine, cheese and more. Their classic pintxos include anchovies, spanish omelette and of course Iberico ham. There's a great mix of seafood and meat, and vegetarian options; something for everyone! As for handcrafted beverages, their gin + tonic list is certainly unique. BC, UK and Scottish distilleries are all included on the list, sometimes even a mix of the two in one cocktail. The bar is all about using fresh ingredients in their drinks, like their sangria with options of peach or classic red. Of course, craft beers on tap and bottled are available for your enjoyment. If you find yourself up skiing or snowboarding in Whistler, be sure to head into the village to have your après and happy hour at Bar Oso.

Anglers at Dolphins Resort BC | Dining in British Columbia

I had a pleasurable experience at the Anglers restaurant in Campbell River. It was a quaint spot with amazing views of the river, with optional seating outside on their patio. The food is fresh and unique. The ingredients are well prepared daily and the chef has a great eye for plating. Needless to say, I was surprised at how sophisticated Anglers really was, especially having come from Vancouver into the tiny town of Campbell River. (Don't underestimate!) All the flavours were there, the presentation was beautiful and the service was fantastic. Also be sure to have their house made bread (made daily!) It is absolutely delicious. 

Food: House Cured + Smoked Meats, Variety of House Pickles, Horseradish Aioli, Craft Beer Mustard, Celery Root, Lavosh Crackers. House Togarashi Crust, Smoked Strawberry Ponzu, Sesame Sticky Rice, Grilled Bok Choy, Wasabi Cucumber Pearls. Dark Chocolate + Espresso Torte with raspberry coulis, and a special of Pavlova.
