We enjoyed our dinner here very much. We had driven a long way and had an early dinner before finding our chalet.

Dropped in for an early lunch and was greeted in a friendly manner. The food was fantastic and different, but very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend a visit to this charming log cabin setting on the edge of town

Loved the log cabin atmosphere. Interesting menu and we enjoyed our meals of buffalo and elk: very rich. Bread was disappointing but the crime brûlée was delicious. Service was excellent: friendly and prompt.

First visited The Island Restaurant 4 years ago. This current road trip from Vancouver included another totally enjoyable evening. Our September evening sunset on the patio overlooked the river and it was fun waving at the rafting parties floating by. We shared the appetizer platter, and for a nominal extra fee the chef allowed us to swap out calamari for... More

This is a fantastic restaurant located on an island between two strands of the Kicking Horse River. The staff is incredibly friendly and the surroundings are beautiful and spacious. It is a large log structure with huge windows and a deck so that you can enjoy the beautiful views. I actually ate here twice in one day -- breakfast and... More

The interior is very nice showing something of the beauty of the area. We had mixed feelings about the food: good steak but the bumbleberry saus was much too sweet, hoisin chicken lacked seasoning and hoisin.

Not only was this a beautiful restaurant, the food was exceptional as was our waitress. We went with a very picky eater and she just about licked her plate clean. The choices were standard but all with a twist that made them delicious. Had it been a nice day we would have dined on one of the two outdoor decks,... More

Went in for lunch last week and I will definitely go there again. I had the veggie burger and it was one of the best I've had. It's not on the menu technically but you can order the burger and sub in the falafel for a patty (it's big and flat and fits in the bun) - wow. Great flavour,... More

Once again the Island and the staff delivered. She had the boccinini salad with smoked turkey, candied walnuts and grape tomatoes. Very good. I had the lamb burger with caramelized onions and blue cheese. Instead of fries I had a cup of smoked beef and potato soup. The smokiness of the soup was really well done. Great soup.The burger was... More
