Good quality !

Enjoyed our meal here. Perhaps a bit over over-priced. Portion sizes on the small side. Service spot on .

We all order the Angus Beef sandwich since it looks yummy and turn out to be as it is looks like. Friendly service and nice atmosphere that you can stay away from the Lake Louise crowd.

We stayed in one of the cabins for two nights, so had two dinners and two breakfasts in the Bistro. All the meals were wonderful, although the wine selection left a bit to be desired.

We had read about "one of the best restaurants in the park" but had trouble finding the name since it's away from the crowds. But it's easy to get to, great service and wonderful creative food! We had a great job and enjoyed dinner in the "bar" with the bonus of both the bistro and casual menu -- can you... More

Tried their "world famous" bison ribs - the plate arrived with one rib, dry, chewy and no flavor - on top of lumpy mash potatoes, surrounded with water from a lump of boiled spinach. Absolutely horrible. Found out later that the high ratings on Trip Advisor were because of the previous chef who left more than a year ago. The... More

We enjoyed lunch at Baker Creek on our drive up the Bow Valley Parkway. The setting is beautiful and the outside appears to be a log cabin but the inside is more refined and the menu is very nice...mostly sandwiches, homemade soups and breads and pizza. We had soup and sandwiches but a nearby table had pizza and it looked... More

Through a recommendation from the staff at Post Hotel, we found this new favorite spot! The 15 or so minute drive is beautiful down the Bow Parkway and before you know it you are driving up in front of a group of log cabins with cheery geraniums in the window boxes. We enjoyed having a good, unique menu that offered... More

Baker Creek Bistro is located on the scenic Banff parkway road. Sometimes there is delightful wildlife to see such as bears, wolves, deer and elk. The Baker Bistro is located next to cabins. The food is amazing. The setting is great. One can either eat on the patio outside or even inside if it starts to rain or it is... More

The food was very good, generous portions for reasonable prices. The service was speedy, although we weren't in a rush. It was an enjoyable evening.
