“Wow, that's Mexican done right”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

We got there early after skiing because we were hungry and tired. After 6:00 expect to wait for a table. We order based on the waitpersons recommendation and it was great. Sharing plates works best so you can try several items and it is fun to compare them. Friendly staff, decor imported from Mexico right down to the tables and chairs. Don't miss the Mexican Corner!

“Great food - better cocktails!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

It was clear from the reviews on here we would have to wait for a table, particularly as a family of six. The wait was an hour but the cocktails were wroth the wait.

The food was authentic, not as much choice as I have seen in most Mexican restaurants, but we all enjoyed what we ate. Fantastic portion of guacamole and tortilla chips to start and then Quesadillas and Enchiladas went down the best.

Unfortunately, we were incredibly jet-lagged so didn't eat or enjoy this place as much as we could have done otherwise.

“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

Didn't really expect authentic Mexican food at Whistler but boy were we wrong. Everything we ordered was tasty and fresh, and certainly couldn't miss out on the margaritas!! If the wait time weren't so long or could make reservations would have given it a 5 star rating.

“Delicious and authentic”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

My husband and I ate here on our honeymoon and were really impressed by the quality of the food and cocktails. We had the burritos and fajitas and were really pleased with portion size, freshness and excellent taste. Highly recommend a visit, but be prepared to wait for a table!

“Huge portion, excellent food, great staff.”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

It took a little asking around to find The Mexican Corner, and well worth it! Is it a new location or a new restaurant?
While waiting to check-in at our hotel, we wandered around the Village looking for the restaurant so we could go from breakfast the next morning. We finally asked at the information both and found it; it's across from the Carleton Lodge, upstairs. By this time, it was 3:00 pm so we decided to have an hors d'oeurves and a margarita. We chose the pulled pork nachos. Wow! It is fabulous. Lots of pork and black beans, as well as all the usual nacho toppings. It could have easily done for four people, but we chowed down and finished it all! So full, we didn't need dinner.
Margaritas were average; the double didn't seem very strong?
Great friendly, helpful staff. Nice bright Mexican paintings and decor.
We will definitely go back! Lots of other things we want to try! Highly recommend.
