Great food in an elegant wine bar setting. Pricey for what you get, although this is Whistler after all.

An intimate tapas restaurant and bar. Delightful dishes. We especially enjoyed the octopus and the scallops. We ate them so fast we forgot to take a photo. We also enjoyed the jamon Serrano and manchego on crostini. The drinks were delightful.

The bartender makes unbelievable drinks. Using fresh ingredients my husband and I sat at the bar and thoroughly enjoyed witnessing his profession. The charcuterie board is excellent as well. Definitely worth booking a reservation as this is a small place but worth it! All of...More

Very cool place with a nice decoration. Tapas are just excellent. We tried all the sea-food tapas and with no exception all were just great! Sitting on the bar is also cool as you see the cook making the food. Albarino wine was just superb....More

No. It's a delightful place but it's not setup for large groups and the menu isn't kid-friendly.

Bar Oso - "oso" meaning "bear" in Spanish, an homage to Whistler's wildlife - is open daily and offers a profusion of Spanish-influenced small plates, tapas, and house-made charcuterie. The long, convivial bar is the ultimate place to meet for hand-crafted cocktails and inspired wines.
