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!

The food was very unimpressive; bland and stodgy.

The restaurant was very cold inside.

What an amazing place to experience and eat at. The food was phenomenal. By far the best service we experienced at a restaurant. Our server Beau was awesome. He was polite, attentive, patient and funny! He was extremely knowledgeable of the menu, wines and schnapps that are served after the meal for digestive. He deserves a raise. Thank you for making our last night of our trip memorable :)

Fondue was wonderful as always. The salmon though was a bit overcooked. Service started off a bit rushed - we were asked for our meal orders as soon as we sat down, before being asked about drinks. Things relaxed a bit once we asked for drinks and time to look at the menu.

Way overpriced fondue meal. Paid for it but where was the rest of the meat? The amount given for 2 was less than the size of the single Wiener schnitzel served. Our guests filled up on lots of bread (for the cheese) that we had refilled three times. Also disappointed that there were empty tables of 4 near and in front of the fireplace the entire time and our table of 8 was the furthest away. Table Nineteen is SO much better and we look forward to their completed renovations and reopening. Cheese fondue tasted great but all in all not worth the price paid.

Great meal in a really nice setting for a winter evening. The food is really good and the portions are huge. Next time we will bring a larger crowd and order family style, sharing the fondue with garlic and herbs and a few entrees like the pork knuckle. .

Overall, it was very good. The service was fantastic and the food was good.

We were excited to have some German style food outside of Germany. The schnitzel was excellent and so was the pork knuckles. The chicken and mushroom stroganoff was tasty but on the salty side. The chocolate fondue was delicious.

The four of us really enjoyed the meal, ambiance, service and recommand this restaurant when visiting Whistler. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Since it was our daughter's birthday, they served a delicious chocolate cake with the hand written happy birthday on the plate and added a little " poire William" to complete the surprise. A great evening to remember. Thank you again!

I was blown away by not only the service, but the quality of food and ambiance as well. We had the fondue experience and it was indeed an experience! What an amazing fondue. It is easily the best I’ve ever had. To end the fondue experience they even come around with some delicious liqueurs as well as a port (at an additional cost). As we were here for NYE night and were the last ones left in the restaurant the manager offered their driver to drive us home. I was speechless at the generosity and service we received this night. Will be recommending this place to all my friends and family.

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.

We came here to celebrate my husband's birthday and from the valet, the wonderful host, friendly bartender and waitress, we had top notch service and the food was amazing especially the Onion Soup and the roasted pork knuckle with the delicious crispy crackling. Thank you for the decorated plate and dessert for his birthday. It was the perfect sweet ending to our evening.

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
