Dining options: Breakfast, Reservations
Description: Chefs are early birds at Windigo Restaurant, as every morning breakfast is served from 7 am for hotel guests and local visitors. On Saturdays and Sundays, Windigo serves Tremblant's most generous buffet breakfast until 1 pm. However, it is certainly at night that Windigo is at its best! The most savvy gourmets are always pleased with the creative choice of à la carte dishes, coupled with top notch service from our experienced and courteous servers. The casual and warm ambiance, as well as the generous and savory meals neatly prepared by our kitchen's brigade are appreciated by hotel guests, visitors and locals. Foodies always return to our signature Saturday buffet dinner "Surf and Turf", a tradition for Tremblant locals and visitors (reservations recommended). Last but not least, our new "Stravaganza" Italian buffet dinner on Fridays will surely become a foodie favourite! For non-hotel guests, valet parking is complimentary with meals. A special occasion to highlight? Windigo's windowed section can be privatized for a group. Thematic and special menus are also available on request.

We've stayed here for the second time and found the service and food has improved. Good choice from simple bar snacks to full menu. Room service was also very good

“The food was very good, the service was excellent.”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

My parents, sister and her significant other and I went for the Christmas dinner buffet. We were seated a few minutes before our booked seating time, Pierre, our server, introduced himself immediately. During our meal he was attentive, friendly and very efficient. I really cannot say enough positive things about Pierre, he truly made our evening a relaxed and wonderful one.
The food was very good, the half lobster was served cold, with hot butter. The mixed vegetables could have had more variety. The line for the roast and shrimp scallop station was frequently long. The scalloped potatoes were very well done and the cheese, nut and fruit station had a great offering.
The dessert bar had a great variety of sweet and decadent desserts. It would have been nice to see a sugar-free option.

“A bit ordinary for Fairmount restaurants”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

The buffet looked delicious! Seafood and fish galore! However, if you're not that hungry, it seems a bit expensive.

Because we had snacked in the afternoon, my friends and I opted for the regular menu. The descriptions looked fantastic; however, we were a bit disappointed for the price. 36$ for 4 big shrimps and risotto with goat cheese, not that impressive. The pork was pretty good, but still, nothing extra-ordinary. I've eaten better and at a lower price.

The service was impeccable though!

“Extremely slow!”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

I expect more from a Fairmont. We sat in the bar area rather than in the main restaurant as we had looked over the dining menu for the bar in advance. It had everything we needed, and we hoped with quicker servce. We were mistaken. Every aspect of our service was slow: drinks orders, appetizer delivery, and especially the mains delivery. My wife threatened to leave just before our main course arrived. Apologies were offered, but were hardly sincere.
