My son and I enjoyed a late lunch at this amazing location. Beautiful views, excellent service, great atmosphere and good food. Definitely worth a visit and a highlight of my vacation.

Appetizers, full meal, or just drinks. It's a nice place to unwind. They even have casual seating in wing back chairs where you can really relax if you desire.

We decided to try out the high tea. The service was super, the food was delicious with a great assortment of foods to eat. We thought we would be starving by the end but surprisingly we were both full! During our dainty romantic time, children arrived and sat beside us. Laying on the couches, laying on the floor, loud, just... More

We had an early and quite light evening meal here, at a splendid table with comfortable seats next to a window looking straight down Lake Louise. All this in the opulent great space designed to allow the maximum number of guests to enjoy the sight. Service was excellent and the small dishes we chose were all of high standard.

Originally we came to have tea-time. But we had to learn that everything goes earlier and you need a booking. So we had a very late lunch or very early dinner - however you would like to call it. It's a real nice place to sit and relax and watch to the lake. As it's not the salad from McDonald's... More

We visited the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise on Boxing Day and after taking some pictures around the ice castle on the frozen lake had breakfast in the Lakeview Lounge. And what a breakfast it was, a vast buffet selection with the option of omelettes made to order by the very friendly chef. Just what we needed after a 2½ hour... More

We were on vacation in the Canadian Rockies and I had determined that we were going to have a special lunch at the Lakeview Lounge at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise which overlooks the lake itself. If one is anywhere in the Lake Louise area looking for a ‘deal’ on a meal…good luck! But...the chateau is ‘the’ premier spot and... More

Wow. Gorgeous place. Doesn't matter if you're here just for lunch or just a light snack. You can sit here for hours just enjoying the view. For some reason the tea served by the Lakeview Lounge is magnificent (it's fairmont branded tea leafs, perhaps the water used?). 2 months back from the trip I still crave for it. Food was... More

We have ordered several different lunch items from the lounge and have never been disappointed. One of our favorites is High Tea. We can never finish it because there is so much food.There is always a line so try to make a reservation. The Lake Louise Ice Tea is so good!
