What an incredible view from this former club house of the Banff Spring Golf Course topped off with delicious fondue. The truffle fondue is outstanding and well worth the drive or flight.More

I'd be surprised if there isn't. I think you could easily stick to the venison (highly recommend) and vegetables and make your preferences clear to staff so they can be careful not to cross contaminate.

Description
Nestled in the woods above the Bow and Spray rivers, you will find our Bavarian cottage-style Waldhaus Restaurant. Feast on a hearty menu featuring authentic Alpine cuisine, including Schnitzel and Fondue, in an atmosphere reminiscent of an old hunting cottage. Dark wood paneling, a large fireplace, and a beautiful wine cabinet housing an excellent wine selection, set the tone for a memorable dining experience in our "House in the Forest".
