Tel: 604 932 3433's insider take:

Given its location in the generic Best Western Listel Whistler in Whistler Village, Bearfoot Bistro's cuisine and wine cellar are a delightful surprise. More Champagne is sold here than at any other Canadian restaurant (the 20,000-bottle cellar includes 110 labels from the region), and chef Melissa Craig snagged the "Canada's Best Chef" title at the 2008 Canadian Culinary Championships. For her Asian-influenced French menu, Craig turns incredibly fresh seafood, top-flight chops and steaks, and locally sourced vegetables into small, elegant dishes such as black cod with edamame and miso sauce. Budget gourmets beware: The dining room is a white tablecloth affair and strictly prix fixe (three courses for about $80; five courses for about $122). An à la carte menu with entrées averaging between $30 and $40 is available in the less formal Champagne Bar, where a pianist at a baby grand entertains the après crowd.

Open daily 5 to 10 pm.
