Great Food, Nice View, and Accomodating Hosts

Went here on a Sunday in August after camping in Red Streak and we were accomodated to have our lunch even before the restaurant opens at 5pm.

Steve has done Hungarian to the nth degree. His resturant has THE BEST view scape of the entire Columbia Valley and Radium Hot Springs. Thank you Steve for the many wonderful meals and deals.

Citadela Restaurant... I'm of Hungarian heritage and have made Hungarian food, dined in restaurants all over Hungary and at home in Ontario all my life, so I had very high expectations... especially since the owner bragged that the chef was from Hungary. We ordered Wiener Schnitzel, we figured you can't go wrong with Schnitzel and at the high price of... More

This is a lovely place to sit on the balcony and enjoy some wine and the scenery. I had the paprika stew and it was phenomenal. The staff brought us blankets to keep warm as we watched the sunset. Loved it!

The food here is really good and wholesome. They really know how to do some good food while keeping it simple. They really know how to use spices to flavor up the dish yet not overusing them.

My husband and I have been going to the Citadella for 8 years. We even got married there!! Food is always homemade and amazing. You may wait a bit for the food but definitely worth it.

This is the kind of food that your European grandmother would serve, up to and including the fact that your European grandmother (not sure if yours does, but mine sure does) overcooks the heck out of her food. The braised cabbage was mushy, the side of carrots was mushy, as was the broccoli. Spaetzle slightly oversalted. Sauerbraten a little tough.... More

Perfect little place, with a perfect view. Chose to eat here based on Tripadvisor reviews, so glad we did! Wonderful service, well paced and relaxing, and the food was fantastic! Would go back to Radium just to eat at this restaurant!

For the two of us, this was a trip back to the 70s. No bad things to say about this restaurant, but no great things to say. All the flavours you expect are there. Preparation techniques, not so much. Good things: fresh, well seasoned dishes; spectacular views, and if timed right, a glorious sunset; attentive, grandparent like service. Bad: masking... More

Food here is fantastic. Authentic Hungarian - try the apricot dumpling desert - it is delicious! The service is great (run by the owners). Find the ad in the local newsletter (available all over Radium) for 15% off your entire bill.
