Sanchez Cantina

Reviewed By intrepidpam - Ottawa, Canada

When we visit our daughter in Whitehorse, we always make a point of eating out at Sanchez Cantina. Our most recent visit was just as delicious as ever. If you want to try something more authentic than the usual Tex-Mex served elsewhere, this is your restaurant. My absolute favourite is the mole chicken, a delectable sauce made with chocolate and spices - most Mexican restaurants won’t take the time required to make this recipe. Otelina’s mole is superb!
The decor in the restaurant is cozy and warm. The service is helpful and friendly. Looking forward to our next visit to Whitehorse so we can go back!!!!

Giorgio's Cuccina

Reviewed By overthehill79 - Seattle, Washington

This restaurant was suggested to us by the hotel staff. We were seated upon arrival and given menus to review. We were surprised how limited the menu was when we were expecting some of the traditional foods so often found in better Italian restaurants. We each made our choice and enjoyed a glass of wine while we waited for our meal to appear.Our selections were OK but overall the restaurant was not what we expected.

Reviewed By r0n69 - Whitehorse, Canada

I reviewed this restaurant last year and the short comings were; In a large party of 15 the fed the preschool children last, food supposed to be hot was cold, forgotten orders, crabby server, messy environment, dull tasting food. One year later to the date, the same party, every issue had been addressed; friendly server, hot food, tasty, kids served first, Praise for Golden Sakura, is this serendipity or did they read the review?

Burnt Toast Cafe

The Cafe has a page on Facebooki.

Reviewed By Jesstopp

We had dinner here on a particularly busy Friday night in Whitehorse. Unfortunately the staff seemed run off their feet and a little distracted trying to serve all customers. That said, they were friendly once seated and apologetic about the wait for food. We shared a truffle fries, I had the scallop salad and my husband had the elk sausage. The food was quite tasty and relatively reasonably priced (for Whitehorse). The rest of the menu looked interesting and definitely worth a repeat visit.

Open for dinner only, The Wheelhouse has a well established reputation for it's creative Canadian cuisine, and friendly,efficient service.

Reviewed By Pikey1951 - Yeovil, United Kingdom

We visited on a Wednesday evening, the night before we were due to fly home to the UK, and we weren't disappointed. The choice of food is excellent and the food itself is to die for, particularly the desserts. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is great. It does get very busy even during the week so highly recommend booking a table. While we were there a coach arrived with about 40 people (obviously pre-booked) and although the restaurant was then almost full it was not too noisy so the acoustics are obviously good.

Yukon Meat & Sausage

Reviewed By Weyes1 - Bloomington, IN

We remembered seeing this little gem on our last trip to the Yukon and decided we had to stop there on this trip. We were really happy we did. The sandwiches are freshly made with homemade (and delicious) bread. There are numerous sausages and lunch meats to choose from and we found several items we had never seen in our travels. For instance, they sell gypsy bacon. We never heard of this so we bought some and had them slice it thinly for us (delicious by the way!). We had lunch there and also bought lots of lunch meat and cheese for our travels. This is a very worthwhile stop.
