“Good food, average service, good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

WE were surprised that everyone was happy wight heir meals. WE weren't sure what to expect after waiting unacknowledged at first. After that waitress was lovely but not the speediest kitchen of the food. Overall a good place to stop with a family.

“Nice, homey and comfort food place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

This is in a hostel, with rustic, rugged seating--which fits in perfectly with the character of the room and the area. The prices were reasonable, especially for the Lake Louise area. Parking was very limited and we had difficulty finding a spot. We waited a bit for a table, but not too long, and once seated, were fairly comfortable. I had chicken curry which was ok--nothing to write home (or here) about, but reasonable and fair priced--for the area (which is a big caveat). You do not have many options in the Village of Lake Louise, and this place will be a good option if you are not of the mind to grossly overpay for your dining experience.

“Hard to find, but keep trying”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

This place is in the International Youth Hostel and has only a small sign itself. Can hardly see it from the road and the phone and car GPS both had it in the wrong place. Coming from the 1, turn right at the stop sign and it is down the road on the left. Coming from LL turn left at Village Road. Anyway it was worth it. Decent food and decent value. Actually great value for LL. Had the pesto chicken and it was very good.

“great visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

We went here for dinner based on TA reviews and were not disappointed. My only criticism is that the chicken noodle soup I had was just warm and not hot. I had penne arriabiata and it was spicy and my husband had the chicken curry which he liked. The service was good enough for a 20% tip too.

“Thumbs up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Ticks all the boxes, good wholesome food, value for money, clean and friendly staff. The gluten free bison burger was so good last night I went back and had it agin for lunch. No frills but altogether these guys have got it right. Congratulations
