This bar is a bit out of the way in the hotel and as a result is one of the few places you can sit and get a bit of peace and quiet. Service was prompt and friendly and the setting is relaxing. It was a nice place to wind down before bed.

Within the Fairmont hotel, this is an amazing place to have drink or bite to eat. If it's warm enough, sit outside on the terrace and take in the outstanding view!

We ate there twice. Great place to have excellent food without the expense and time of a regular restarant. Only ciriticism is that a times it is tough to get a good table that you can easily eat at.

Ate here three times during my stay. The service was great and the food tasty. Only issue is that there is not much to choose from for vegetarians. The kiwi sapphire tonic is my new drink for the summer!

This very interesting restaurant is unique in that it serves wild Canadian meat cooked either in a fondue or on a hot rock. The beer comes in large pints and is icy cold. You can start with a cheese fondue, have your meat course and then end with the chocolate fondue. It's really good and makes for a wonderful communal... More

The new menu is very tasty - the chef has made a difference! The entertainment is fun with the new entertainer Michael being a bit of a show man!

My husband and I choose to dine here because the Castelo Italian restaurant had no availability at the time. The menu was similar to Castelos and the lounge was actually much more intimate and quieter. It was lovely. Our meals were delicious and a great portion size.

...if you sit outside. Innovative custom drink menu, but the drinks are not inexpensive. For lunch or light dinner, the menu is excellent. Try the pizza Marguerite.
