After a full day of trails and vistas, we enjoyed a five course 3 hour meal that included unique tastes and local products at a comfortable mountain lodge.

The food there is excellent. The prices are a little steep. We had halibut which was cooked perfectly and served beautifully. They have both indoor and outdoor seating. We chose outdoor.

the food was pretty good; wine pairing was fine. Some of the attempts to create a "fusion" dish was not altogether successful. With the wine, this was not a cheap meal.
