A crackling log fire, warm hospitality and hearty alpine cuisine set the stage for a unique dining experience in Whistler resort at The Chalet at Fairmont Chateau Whistler hotel.

Hosted in the summertime home of the Chateau Whistler Golf Clubhouse, The Chalet offers an intimate and decadent winter menu including savory fondues, rösti and artisan charcuterie platters.

Be sure to save room for the rich, chocolate fondue dessert!

We were very excited to be dining at a Fairmont and the ambiance and service did not disappoint. The Chalet is only open in the winter (it’s the golf course club house in the summer) and offers Swiss style food including fondue. Our only disappointment was the amount of food that came with the surf and turf fondue. For the cost we were expecting quite a bit more. Don’t expect it to fill you up and don’t go hungry, it won’t be enough!

The ambiance and food was amazing. The prices were very high for my family, but we splurged for this one special meal in Whistler. My biggest complaint was the service. Although our server was initially very attentive, there was a period of over 20 minutes in which she did not come around to the table. I was trying to get any other server's attention, but because we were in the corner, no one noticed. For the price of the meal, I expected better service.

Excellent and friendly servers. French onion soup had a rich beef broth that was superb! The cheese fondue was extraordinary, especially with the Pemberton potatoes and broccolini. On the downside is the price of wines by the glass. $20 and up. Fabulous meal, though!

I would recommend a friend but would let them know to be careful when you order I told the waiter I only wanted 2 orders of cheeses and he put 5 orders and I got charged 180$ for cheese dip which of course we didn’t eat it all. It’s $34 per person. The food was very good and I loved the place very romantic . People were very friendly

The location is lovely - a winter wonderland away from the hustle of the main village - and the ambience of the small room is pleasantly intimate. We have had fondues there in the past which has always been excellent. On this occasion we and our dining companions chose other menu items - a reasonable selection is offered given that fondue is the speciality, but we found the meat meals to be extremely "heavy", and overly salted, and the salmon was quite dry. Service was a little haphazard. With the renowned quality of the Chateau's culinary team, we expected an overall more memorable experience.

I have had this fondue several times and it is great, the flavours, cheese are all fantastic. However, I do not think the special should be $82 per person though! Yes, it is 3 fondues and a salad or soup but really I could have a main and appie or dessert at Araxi for the same price. It's not hard to put together a fondue, simmer the cheese or broth or chocolate and chop up things to go in it. If you go for the single cheese fondue and want to add a flavour like truffle or garlic, you can only do it for 2 people so if there are 3 of you then you have to purchase a 4th to have 2 different fondues. I would have thought we could each choose a different one! Anyway, the service was great and it is a nice spot for Whistler.

Not worth the $ IMO — food options are limited, and Fondue seems to be the main attraction here, which was ok. $18 cocktails that were rather bland. There are definitely better places for your money..

While we've dined here before during the summer months after golf, this is the first time that we'd dined here in the winter months. It was interesting how they transformed what is the pro shop in the summer into more dining space for the restaurant. It was nice to be greeted by one of the waiters who we had serve us in the summer making us feel very welcome.

The menu had fondue items as well as a regular type menu. On this trip we opted for the regular menu and ordered salads and Wiener Schnitzel. All was delicious. The server , a young woman from Wales, was very nice and attentive.

It was a great dining experience and will plan to return in the future for both dinner after golf in the summer and again in the winter to perhaps try the fondue.
