Excellent Fondue!

Excellent wait staff and food. We had the 3 course fondue with cheese, beef tenderloin and dessert. All were top notch. I highly recommend having dinner at the Walliser Stube.

We ate at the Walliser Stube at our last visit to Lake Louise 10 years ago and I have very fond memories of it, therefore we were delighted when we managed to get a dinner reservation, despite not staying at the Fairmont. First impressions were fine. Menu is pricey, as you'd expect. I seem to remember last time they had... More

Great menu. Had one of the best steaks I have had for a long time. Cooked to perfection. Outstanding service, very friendly table waitress that interacted with our table. Great bar staff and yes one was an aussie. Gave me one of his cocktail secrets, Mmmmmm. Could even go beyond excellent. Such a great night here.

I enjoyed the best meal at the Fairmont at this restaurant. Not only was the food great, but the views are spectacular. I highly recommend the Weinerschnitzel. It is a large portion and was so tasty! Also, be sure to save room for the amazing Chocolate Fondue for dessert. It is more than enough for 2 people. Besides the melted... More

We came previously a few years ago during the off season and this was a fantastic accidental find. This time I wanted to try the raclette again but they took it off the menu! Instead, we decided to try 5 of the appetizers as none of the mains looked enticing. We also ordered drinks and they were not done as... More

this was our favorite of all of the Chateau Fairmont dining choices. Our waiter, JC, was one of the best waiters I've ever had. We all got the Prix-fix menu and did fondue with Chateau Briande. Superb. Request a table in the lake-view front room, it is much warmer and nicer...

This is easily the best restaurant in the hotel. From the service to the ambience and from the food to the wine outstanding. We went there twice and despite the crown they recognized us. They really made us feel welcome.

The Walliser Stube only survives as it is located within the Fairmont Hotel. It is fairly dingy and dark, but the main problem is the staff. Making a booking in this hotel means nothing to the staff. They have no hesitation giving your table away to a walk in. The tables and chairs aren't cleaned properly either. The meals are... More
