Located in the hostel at Lake Louise, this busy little place is a hidden gem. It was very busy on the Friday night that we ate here and, due to a large birthday party being held there that evening and a no-reservation policy, we had to sit at two tables across the restaurant from each other. The two waitresses, though... More

We had dinner here one evening and were pleasantly surprised. The food was good (burgers and fries, simple and tasty), the staff were helpful and the price was great.

This place is very accommodating to our birthday party. Service was good and food was amazing. Everyone is happy with their order. Atmosphere is awesome. Price is average. Food portion is good for the price you pay. Very reasonable menu considering this is in a hostel in Lake Louise.

Lake Louise is expensive. Bill Peyote's Café is a welcome respite for your wallet and palate. We had an excellent lunch and dinner here - nothing too fancy, but good value for money. The service was both attentive and cheerful. Although the restaurant is located in a hostel, this is a hostel that might be run by the Ritz Carlton... More

We started each day with breakfast from here. The best value for the area. Staff is young and eager to please.

The friendly vibe at this rustic Bill Peyto's Cafe puts everybody at ease. It's nice to find an inexpensive eatery in pricey Lake Louise that serves unpretentious food and plenty of it. We enjoyed the Thai Stir-fry and the Chicken Coconut Curry for the multitude of veggies and the tender chicken. Our waitress was so friendly, and she really hustled... More

If you want a good meal at a decent price in Lake Louise, then try Peyto's. The service is from friendly and the food is your standard pub fare. It is off the beaten path, but worth the visit. Enjoy!

Food and Service is great! Nice place to go after a long days hike!!! Be prepared for a wait time because it is very popular with locals. Well worth the wait. Ate here a couple times while staying at the hostel.

This is a rustic, casual restaurant inside a ski hostel. It's easy to drive right past, and our GPS took us in the wrong direction entirely, so it's a good idea to ask the locals where the international hostel is. You have to go up some stairs and around an "avalanche " area where I surmise that the snow slides... More
