On our way from Lake O'Hara to Kelowna (see reviews) we stopped for an overnighter at Golden. Not really the most fabulous place but we were very lucky to have found The Island Restaurant right on the border of the Kicking Horse River. It was a beautiful night to sit outside on the patio. The food is good (we had... More

We had dinner upstairs, indoors as weather raining. If you get a chance to eat here, go outside on the upstairs patio. Watch river rafters going by while eating a meal from a unique menu as well. Our grandson had the buffalo burger...this was not your typical burger....he loved it. The scallops to die for, fettuccini, that was so flavourful... More

We ate on the patio upstairs, great views! The meal was delicious and the menu was unique. I had a chickpea curry dish and my husband had a elk burger ....very good! Service was great! Would love to eat inside too but it was a little warm in the restaurant.

Enjoyed a great breakfast on the patio. The omelette breakfast is delicious, the staff are quick and friendly, and you just can't beat the patio. Will definitely be back!

My niece wanted pasta with Alfredo sauce. When our server asked if that was possible, the chef immediately started making it for her. My niece said it was the best she's ever had. She ate 2 bowls!

We had the black pepper pasta.... Oh my... This is how pasta should be!!! Completely fresh and tasty! Lovely presentation. We sat outside upstairs and had an ok view of the river. GPS screwed us up getting here so we are REALLY glad we asked someone. Lots of people filled the place as we were seated. I didn't like the... More

Enjoyed a Sunday evening dinner on the Island's fabulous deck overlooking the Kicking Horse River. If the view wasn't enough, our black pepper fettucine and the special of the day (snapper) were tasty. The staff was helpful and friendly, a lovely place to enjoy a meal! Looking forward to our next visit, may try for breakfast so we can enjoy... More

We had a wonderful lunch at the Island Restaurant. The service was great, the food awesome, and a wonderful view. Love the sound of the Kicking Horse River rushing by. Unfortunately, it began to rain, but the wait staff was nice and moved us inside. It was a little disappointing as we had looked forward to eating on the patio,... More
