Whistler is not a great place to be hungry on Saturday evening. None of the Restaurants appear to take Reservations which is very frustrating for those of us who are prepared to plan ahead a little. Whilst I get that they can get more people through and consequently make more profit, it is not great customer service.
After wandering around on a fruitless search for anywhere with a wait-list of less than 90 minutes we found ourselves stood next to what must be said is the uninviting entrance to Three Below, which can be found very close to the entrance to the Mongoli. Three Below shares it's entrance with movie theatre, the Restaurant itself situated below ground. We sent one of our party to have a look and check the length out the wait. He reported tables available and my initial thought was that there must be a reason for that, expectations were low. Hunger took precedence over normal common sense and we decided to take a chance, descending the stairs which are covered with carpet long overdue a clean and breathing in the overwhelming smell of popcorn, enough to make many people turn round and exit immediately.
Our party of seven were seated quickly by friendly staff and a drinks order was served, a nice IPA for the two men and the ladies were very impressed with the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
Our food order was pretty simple 4 classic burgers, 2 Meatloaf and 1 pasta.
All of the food was met with very positive comment, the burgers were very tasty, possibly even made on the premises, as was the Meatloaf which was served with Mash, vegetables and nice gravy. Service was low key but attentive and friendly.
To summarise, do not overlook Three Below, the food and service far exceed any initial expectations.
