It is my birthday today and ended up going to Bar Oso around lunch time with my son sleeping in the stroller. I felt awkward bringing in my son but the server (hostess), Brenna, made me feel very welcome and easy about it. Genuine smile...More

It's an excellent Tapas bar - meaning, for the uninitiated, an extraordinarily small, savory Spanish dish to share (a few bites at best). The Jamon Iberico was to die for and every other dish we ordered - Gilda, Pork Jowl, Duck Liver Parfait, Tiger Prawns,...More

Wanted something small and interesting. Got both! The flavors were incredible and the presentation was on par with some very expensive restaurants I have been to without the sticker shock! The entire staff is helpful and friendly!

We were able to sit at the bar where we could watch chef Jorge prepare beautiful small plates of salads, charcuterie boards and bocadillos. He was delightful to talk to and truly enjoyed his craft. Great cured meats and cheeses and sangria.

Visited here as a family of three and had the pleasure of sitting at the bar with a bird’s eye view of the food prep area. It’s a tiny place with probably only around 20 or so covers upstairs but we were seated straight away....More

In the middle of the village of Whistler this is a perfect stop before going for dinner somewhere. We normally take the charcuterie board with cheese and salumi and it is a very decent portion. Wine list is also great! We always go here when...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.
