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".

In a hotel with a lot of formal dining options, the Waldhaus Pub offers a nice relaxed alternative. It's not cheap, but the food is excellent. My wife loved the fondue and I had the burger. Both were great.

The Waldhaus is actually a fine dining restaurant upstairs and a German type pub downstairs. It is attached to or a part of the Banff Springs hotel
All I can say is that the escargot and the venison were as good as any I have ever had any where and the service was excellent

It should be a great place to have a drink and a meal while watching the several tv's. Instead it smelled horrible and the food was terrible. Left after dinner because of the smell.

Before moving away from Banff I visited here every year for my Birthday. The Beef and Chocolate Fondue is amazing...The Beef Fondue is thinly sliced and then you cook it in a broth. It comes with some fresh veggies and delicious dipping sauce. The Chocolate Fondue...well it is chocolate, need I say more.

Nice german beers, original but fatty food. We had schnitzel and bratwurst, with potato salad. Room surrounded by large and loud TV screens. Expensive.
