The food was delicious, the pasta in the black pepper fettuccine is homemade perfection. However the service from our particular waitress was sub par, to say the least. So go for awesome food but don't expect the best service.

Nice building inside and out. Food was ok but nothing special and not cheap. The waitress seemed to be going through the motions - rather than actually connecting with customers and being interested in what they had to say she had a 'patter' which she...More

We eat here often, mostly for breakfast but also dinner. Very cool interior. Log home on Kicking Horse River. Owner Petra is a delight as are all their staff. We enjoy the eggs benny and omelettes, as well as their varied dinner choices.

The restaurant was very pleasant! The building is a log cabin kinda place which is nice and fun to see. The food was excellent. The soup was great and the Caesar salad were both excellent. Caesar salad was quite different than anything I’ve had before...More

No need to book. Very warm and friendly, chalet style restaurant. We had a really delicious casserole of bison, vegetables and a potato rosti cake, then apple strudel all very tasty and welcome on a cold night!

What a lovely place and food is great, although I only had the soup as I had driven for 5 hours and was tired but very nice place to eat and spend some chill out time.

We stopped here while doing a loop of Banff>Radium Springs>Golden>Field>Banff. It was mid-afternoon and very quiet. We had great service, the decor was woodsy.. but the main event was: BURGERS. OMG. I had the bison and my friend had regular. We both agreed: best burger...More
