Profile Last Updated: May 05, 2008
With a bevy of awards from the likes of Vancouver Magazine and Wine Spectator Magazine calling La Rua one of the best restaurants in Whistler, it’s no wonder it’s such a popular spot. However, it’s also the dining experience and not only the positive press that keeps most coming back for another taste. Drawing crowds can be tough for restaurants in the upper village, but La Rua does it on reputation alone.
A Taste from Around the World
Featuring some of the best seafood, steak and game available, chef RD Stewart has created a menu famous for its host of fresh choices. Using many locally grown and raised ingredients, Stewart takes diners on a journey across the globe with contemporary features from all over the map. Those in the mood for pasta will find a few great choices made with only the finest ingredients. Looking for a steak? You’ll only find the best AAA Alberta beef at La Rua. A great wine list also awaits diners with fabulous pairings for every dish.
Contemporary Mediterranean Décor
Step inside and you’ll be greeted by two separate and distinct dining rooms, each seating 75-people. Comfortable Mediterranean décor including the fine craftsmanship of Mexican tiles in bright yellow, red and gold set the tone for an exceptional meal in a relaxed environment. Meanwhile, diners can drink in the view of Blackcomb Mountain above or the Lost Lake below. La Rua Restaurante is widely hailed as one of the best mountain resort restaurants in North America and one of the top 100 places to dine in Canada. It’s truly as world class as its surroundings.
Call Ahead: Reservations are highly recommended.
Patio: Seats 80 during the summer only.
