Four of us had tea at the Rundle and the view is gorgeous looking at the mountains. The food was plentiful and delicious. I was expecting a small amount of tasting items with tea but there was so much variety that we were "stuffed" after tasting all sorts of eats. Definitely add this to your list while visiting Banff! You will not be disappointed.

nice place to go have a quick snack and hang out with amazing mountain views. nightly live music. All the seating is very specialized so youre not just sitting at a table but a coffee table and a couch or something unique. great visit!

Attentive service, killer smoked salmon sandwich and cold beer...excellent cauliflower soup, grilled cheese too. The wait staff put us onto a great lake drive around Minnewanka. But the view has the show here, out the back of the Fairmont Banff Springs. Best enjoyed around 11am...be first to grab the best spots.

Delicious high tea with amazing views over the snow capped mountains.

The scones, savoury sandwiches, quiche, croissants, and the enormous assortment of sweet pastries and cakes was just wonderful. We would always prefer to have more of a savoury selection, but we are possibly the ones "out of step" here as all high teas seem to be "top heavy" with the sweet selection.

This was a lovely thing to do but booking is highly advisable as it's very popular.

We did not stay at the hotel but stopped on a cold rainy day for lunch. Parking in Banff is a problem but the hotel had a parking garage open to the public. It is pricey but very convenient to the hotel.

We had lunch in the Rundle lounge which has an old baronial feel but with up to date touches. The food was very good. My husband had a seafood chowder and an outstanding grilled cheese sandwich. The sandwich was huge. I had the soup of the day and a smoked salmon sandwich. Both were delicious.

The service was a tad slow but the hotel was very busy and the atmosphere was so pleasant that we were in no rush to leave.
