Who says you have to be in a big city to enjoy amazing food. Right in the heart of downtown Golden - the old section of town - is a great new bistro that is clearly a local, and visitor favourite. It is called the Whitetooth Mountain Bistro (named after the mountain that Kicking Horse Ski Resort now occupies). The atmosphere is cozy and classy-colourful with a great bar stacked with all sorts of wines and spirits. The martini selection rocks and there are some great BC wines by the glass. The menu has something for everyone, but I really recommend the caesar salad (with a touch of blue cheese in it according to the waiter). We were in town 3 nights and we ate there two of them it was so good - the risotto was wonderful and one of my companions didn't look up from his steak and potatoe with all the fixings so I guess he was happy too. The place was packed...and for good reason! We were in Golden in April and there aren't alot of restaurants open so this is a real gem. I bet it would be great after a long day on the slopes at Kicking Horse, or after a river raft ride as well.
