Best Value in Lake Louise

The food is simple, but there is a very nice range of choices. There is a reason why it is so popular - good portions, good prices, and extremely friendly service. It gets very busy on the weekends, but is totally worth arriving early!

We were looking for a budget-friendly place to go for dinner. At first, we were surprised that it was part of the hostel. Not really what we were looking for, no? But, the setting was so nice. Basic, but nice and the atmosphere was great. The waitress was very friendly, without overdoing it. We immediately got glasses of tap water... More

While in LL for a work meeting I had lunch here almost every day that week and NEVER had a disappointing lunch. The elk burger was excellent and even better the staff was super friendly. A great warm relaxed cozy environment for lunch and not crazy expensive.

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
