We had a light lunch here upon arriving at the hotel. The seated us before tourists dropping by who were not hotel guests. We appreciated the service. We had a delightful meal with a beautiful view. The service was fair, as the waiter wasn't always available.

We had made a reservation to eat at this restaurant as we had been there some years ago and had a wonderful experience. We were not disappointed. The food, service and wine were all excellent and the ambiance is unbeatable.

We had dinner this evening at the Walliser Stube restaurant. It was excellent. The atmosphere was spectacular. The food and service was equally good. We started with the Black Truffle Cheese Fondue. It was fantastic. In addition to the traditional bread, they provided numerous vegetables; broccoli, pearl onions, carrots, green beans, red and yellow peppers and pickles. The cheese was... More

This was the best meal of our entire vacation. We chose the chef's menu with châteaubriand, and it was one of the best steaks I've ever had. The wine pairings were perfect. I wish I could remember our server's name because he was fantastic. The whole experience was perfect.

the mountaineering tourism of Lake Louise was developed by a group of Swiss Walser guides from Zermatt at the end of XIX century and Walliser Stube offers the food typical of the Walser people who live in the Alps in Italy, Switzerland and Austria. It is a small Germanic population who settled in few villages dispersed across the Alps. it... More

Highly recommended if you are staying at the Fairmont, or even if you're not. The menu is relatively small but has a wide variety, easily something for everyone. We were told the desserts were outstanding, but unfortunately we had to pass. A very European feel and a nice alternative to some of the other Fairmont dining options.

Great service at this restaurant. We ordered the truffle fondue, tenderloin, milk fed pork, the salad and the chocolate fondue to share amongst the 4 of us. Food was more than enough! Prices are reasonable given the location and atmosphere. We've been to Switzerland and think that the food here is not only on par (but possibly better!)

The food at this restaurant was good but pricey. You needed a reservation as the restaurant does not have much turnover and is open only a short time for dinner. If it is just two we went to the small bar at the front without reservation and had drinks and then dinner at the bar.
