Oustanding Restaurant

This is an amazing restaurant. The food was incredible and the service bar none. Even if you are not staying at the Lodge, you should stop and eat here. You wont' regret it!!

The bistro continued our romantic two days at the Baker Creek Mountain Resort. The staff was friendly but discrete making one feel looked after but not "bombarded", or in the way. The food was excellent.

This restaurant is about a 15 minute drive from Lake Louise south on the Bow Valley Parkway, but certainly worth the drive. The location is remote, in a good way, and the food and ambiance are exceptional. We actually went twice - it was that good. The wild boar chop and rabbit were excellent - but the tamer fare is...

Nigel Walker and his staff created the most delicious meal for us on New Year's Eve! The oven roasted halibut with beet broth moat was simply divine. My braised chicken was so full of flavour. The portions were perfect. Wonderful with the wine pairings. Hope to return soon, for the spring menu and a bit of spring skiing. Thanks Baker... More

Good service and good food but somewhat pricey. Tables too close together and heating turned up way too high..

We stayed in the Lounge for dinner. My wife decided on "Wild Boar Pork Chop" and I went for "Beer Braised Bison Short Ribs". This tender succulent meat falls off the bone. Every bite just melts in your mouth. And that pint of "Grumpy Bear Honey Wheat" was going down so smoothly. And, of course, Kelsie. She was very friendly,... More

The only food around --- but the beer is excellent from the local Grizzly Paw brewery AND the pizza is so great! The crust is light and thin like the pizza made in Italy. The prices are fair, but reasonable for the Lake Louise/Banff area. Stop in if you are hungry!

We stopped here for lunch while checking out Banff National Park. They have a good menu and the service and food is great. We opted to sit outside and were visited by a cute chipmunk checking out what others might have left behind. There were some interesting characters, a group of bikers dining at the same time as us who... More

My husband and I first visited Baker Creek Bistro 4 years ago and had a very memorable meal there so were looking forward to our return. Once again, we were not disappointed. My husband had the steak for his main and mixed berry pie for dessert. I tried the beer braised buffalo ribs and had pumpkin pie cheesecake for dessert.... More
