“Excellent food and service.”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

already described it in my Chateau review, but basically, we thought the breakfasts, lunches and dinners (we stayed 3 nights) were all extremely good. Excellent quality of food, well prepared and served.

“Although overpriced...”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

...it is well worth it, especially if it is included as part of one of the hotel package. Had breakfast on two occasions there and were not disappointed. Nice spread of options and very high quality food. Fairly speedy and friendly service. "Cook-to-order" egg station. Maple butter crepes are to die for! Some less traditional fruit options are available such as rhubarb compote and side of apple sauce

“Breakfast Excellent and Lunch ok but very expensive”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

I came here for a convention that was held over the weekend. The restaurant menu for lunch is expensive very limited choices and nice but not delicious. My waitress was very nice and courteous. She made a few suggestions and what she recommended i did end up having and it was a good chicken sandwich with a salad for 33.17$. quite expensive for a sandwich. They have a buffet breakfast with many different choices with an omelet egg station for french omelets and eggs. The Fairmont breakfast was one of the best breakfasts I have tasted. Fresh food, fresh pastries, everything you need for a balanced breakfast! It was honestly delicious. I think the breakfast buffet is about 30.00$ /person. It is expensive but I must say it was very fresh and every bite was appreciated. Fairmont restaurants at this hotel is very expensive so expect to pay!!

“Ridiculous prices coughed up by a captive market, food is great though”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Like pigs to the slaughterhouse, the Fairmont's captive guests get killed in the main dining room of the Chateau Montebello. Dinner buffet at $67 which gets you to over $100 a head after non alcoholic beverages, taxes and tip, is just ridiculous. The food was great, I grant you that. But come on....

We learnt our lesson and explored the offerings in Montebello proper and as far away as Hawkesbury where we at least felt we received reasonable value.

“Terrible Value”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

Buffet lunch is $41 and is terrible. Choices are limited. Food is poorly displayed. Half the counters and earners are empty. The food that is there is dried and un-appealing.

They can only charge people so much because they are guests at the hotel where there is nothing else to eat and it's a pretty remote place, so basically "rip-off the guest" practice - and they are good at it.

The wait staff is extremely pleasant and nice, the hostesses useless, the managers very helpful - but nothing makes up for the price quality ratio.

If you stay at the Chateau then you have no choice - so be prepared to suffer.
