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".

“GREAT treat while in Banff”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We were staying at Fairmont Banff springs and this was our favorite spot. Great German feel and of course steins of beer to make it even better!

“Great Big Beers!!”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

Great little pub below the Banff Springs Hotel, very close to Bow Falls. They serve a 44oz and 32 oz beer and the food is really good as well.

“Extemely Salty Food Must Sell More Beer!”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

Beer was good but food was extremely salty and overcooked. This was our poorest eating experience in all of Banff. 5 nights out of 6 we walked into town for supper. Should have been 6 for 6!

“Good pub food and drink, and no one yodelled”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

The short walk down the hill from the Banff Springs hotel was worth the trip, though the trek back up was hard after a day of skiing. We had a very enjoyable meal while watching the hockey playoffs with fans in the pub. The food was very good for a pub and there was a very good selection of beer, including the 32 ounce 'medium' selection. The kids mini-Toblerone chocolate fondue was a big hit with our 9 year old (and her mom).
