Avoid the Canadian food

From other reviews should have tried the Chinese food. The Canadian food was poor and the decor is tired and uninspiring. Service was OK.

It is a schizophrenic Cafe. Part truck stop greasy spoon, part Chinese restaurant and part aspirational tourist restaurant. Unfortunately it needs a complete renovation, a menu rewrite and customer service training for staff. The portion sizes were quite large and the food average. It is extremely expensive for the experience and food quality.

The Grill and Bar has two different sides to it during the day the restaurant side deals with tourist and tour buses while the bar side has a slower local vibe. At night the restaurant is closed and the bar side gets busy with local action. The bar tends to deal with long time locals and ski bums. It has... More

This hidden gem can be found in the Samson Mall Village in Lake Louise! It's in a very understated area, between the public toilets and souvenir shop! The decor is worn and old- and somewhat disconcerting on first impressions but our waitress was warm and attentive and our outlook into the snow covered woods was the rose among the thorns!... More

I'v been there a couple times with friends (as "the local" and me being new to town) just for a drink and a game of pool and was ok. Just don't ask for anymore than that. I made the mistake taking my friends that were visiting there for dinner. Then started by placing an order and the barman replies "what... More

Let's start with the entrance. You head upstairs in a stairwell that seems more suitable for a public swimming pool than a restaurant/lounge. In fact, you sort of start doubting yourself as to whether or not you entered the right door. My friend and I ate in the lounge portion and it was nothing to right home about -- pretty... More

We found this restaurant on our first evening in Lake Louise. The entrance is quite displeasing, and the restaurant is very simple itself. The food is average, and yet very expensive. I do want to say that the waiter was very nice, and very accommodating.

ordered a blt and mushroom soup. bacon was extremely hard and dry, tasted like microwaved leftovers from the day before. I don't even know how to describe the soup. it did not look good and definitely didn't taste good. I took one bite and didn't go back. service was quick, probably because we were the only people in the restaurant.... More
