We decided to enjoy a light lunch here following out walk around the lake so that we could continue to enjoy the magnificent lake and mountain vistas for longer. It is gratifying that the lounge doesn't just trade on its location, but provides great food and service as well. We were seated promptly by friendly staff at a table with... More

Food was good quality and not too much of it. Service good. Nothing to complain about. Only problem is you cannot book dinner for a certain time. Went around 6.30 p.m. For dinner and told next sitting was 9.45 p.m. Restaurant closes at 9 p.m.

a little bit pricey but good to do once. The view is spectacular and the atmosphere is nice. Would like to have seen a few christmas lights on the pillars or a bit of christmas greenery to add to the ambiance

April 21 we had an amaziging tea at the Chateau Lake Louise. The view of a frozen Lake Louise and snow everywhere was breathtaking. The tea, sandwiches, dessert, and service was excellent as usual. It was nice being there in the off season. The free visitors parking lot in the had only 15-20 cars which is a first. Usually in... More

The Lounge over looks the lake and is a wonderful setting for lunch or a drink. I had the Waldorf salad and it was fantastic.

Beautiful food, great tea, but I still feel a bit sick at the $20 parking fee when I've just spent over $100 on tea for two. No signs in advance making the fee clear and no offer was made to waive the fee for customers. Ouch.

We enjoyed lunch here two days during our stay sampling most of the menu between the 6 of us. Everything was delicious and fresh.
