Description: One of the most iconic lobby lounges in the Canadian Rockies, the Lakeview Lounge offers a charming and elegant setting to sip on a sophisticated cocktail or an illustrious wine. Sit back, relax and admire the spectacular, world-class views of Lake Louise and Victoria Glacier. The combination of architectural and natural beauty makes for an unforgettable lobby lounge experience in the heart of Banff National Park. Be sure to sample our signature cocktail; the Lakeview Cosmopolitan, that has been a local’s favourite for years. In addition to an extensive cocktail and wine selection, seasonally inspired lunch and dinner menus are available. During the summer months, soak up the fresh mountain air and surrounding beauty from one of the most scenic patios in the Canadian Rockies.

Had a light meal here with great specialty drinks and tapas. You can't beat the view, sitting in a window looking directly at Lake Louise. Had no wait for a lakeside table which surprised us. The cheese slate sample is wonderful.

People come from around the world for the breathtaking view so plan ahead and reserve a table for two at the Lakeside Lounge right in front of the expansive windows that afford a once-in-a-lifetime view of the lake and mountains. It's the best view and actually less pricey than many of the other options at the hotel and the food quality is top notch as it has been every time I've been at the Chateau.
If you feel like splurging, indulge in the High Tea while basking in the sun, reading a newspaper - that was two hours well wasted by my Fiancee Palma and I ;-)

Take time out to have lunch in the Lakeside Restaurant of the Fairmont Chateau. Stunning views and good food in a rather grand setting, thoroughly enjoyable.

My wife and I wanted to enjoy the Chateau Lake Louise as we were only there for a few hours. We stopped into the newly renovated (as in the first day re-opened) Lakeview Lounge, with its new menu and awesome cocktail menu. The gin and basil cocktail was incredible. Highly recommend.
