Delicious meal, great dessert - unbelievable view especially if seated by the window. I called to get a reservation and was told they were full - but I went early to the restaurant and was seated immediately and served.

Had breakfast buffet here after a morning of canoeing on Lake Louise. Probably the best value in the hotel with an astounding view of the Victoria Glacier. Every traditional breakfast option is available as well as some Asian and Indian dishes
