Intimate Atmosphere with View of Mount Fairview!

We arrived late one weekday evening with an 830 reservation for this Italian resto in alpine location. Most of the diners had their meal earlier---so it had an intimate quiet feel to this large substantive alpine dining area--and we sat at table with the peak of Mount Fairview seen out the window... read more

staff: our waitress was super friendly! She always acknowledged and interacted with my 1 year old son. service: i had an early seating as i was with my 1 year old. They seated us promptly. Our food came fast. They brought a "child friendly" toy. My husband came late due to groomsman duties - they still took his order and... More

We booked and ate at this restaurant for family day long weekend and were a table of 8 including 2 kids. We were not able to get the booking time we wanted as the restaurant was "completely booked". When we arrived and during dinner it was at best 30% full. We were not told that it was a buffet when... More

On January 1 and 2 the Lago restaurant offered an Italian Buffet. Food was very good, tasty. Everything from pasta to shrimp, lamb, porc, risotto, etc was perfect .....what a great dinner!

Four of us were very disappointed in range of food and quality of food in such a hotel as this. Pasta was dried out and terrible worst dining experience of our trip and cost us $250! Should have had room service!

A group us ate dinner here while staying at the Fairmont. We all agreed that the food was excellent with a wide variety of choices on the menu. The deserts were delicious and were almost too much after the main course. The staff were very attentive and a table of 10 was no trouble. I noticed many intimate tables dotted... More

Perhaps it was the choice which didn't suit but although the food was not exceptional the dessert was delicious.

We enjoyed an excellent Italian meal - my husband had lamb meatballs which we're delicious and a great veal dish. I ordered a salad and a pizza and was also impressed. Friendly service. Felt welcome, relaxed and comfortable. Topped off a great stay at the Chateau!

A good selection of Italian dishes served with professionalism. We enjoyed not only the antipasti but also the main courses and the desserts.

After bagging all food outlets at the chateau on our first day's stay the Lago Italian restaurant restored our faith and their reputation somewhat. We had learnt the ropes and knew to reserve early (the day before) and managed to secure a 6pm reservation. The only other available being 8.30pm! From this point on things looked up and the staff...
