“Good, but over priced.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Nice atmosphere. But overpriced like everything else at the hotel. The food was good, although the portions were sooo small!!! Its almost like they want you to order dessert - which we did not do. Drinks were decently priced. Bottomless pop. And they can do some dishes quickly if you are in a rush.

“cozy spot to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

The food was very good, stay away from the pizza though. Nothing special. The drink menu is amazing although expensive.

“Go for a Drink”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Following some friend´s suggestion, we went to the Fairmont Banff Rundle Lounge for a drink before lunch and the experience was fantastic. With a stunning view of the Rocky Mountains, we were met with a lot of attention, even if not staying at the hotel. We asked for a Moscow Mule and a Celibataire drinks they were made to perfection. Besides, we had flat bread with salmon tartar and other little things. We loved everything, repeated the the appetizers and drinks and this is my best memory of Banff. Strongly recommend.

“Also good for dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We stayed for dinner when the other restaurants could not take us for an hour. Got a table by the window and best prices for dinner in the hotel. The service is slow here so you need to advocate for yourself and you will have a perfectly fine dinner!

“Great meal, great wine, great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Had dinner here. A lovely glass of local wine and a delicious bison burger. Get a table by the window! There were a few rowdy conventioneers there, but an otherwise enjoyable experience.
