This restaurant is located nearby Lake Louise, but has the advantage that prices aren’t completely outrageous over here, compared to the Chateau. Staff is friendly and professional. The interior is classic lodge style: with lots of wood and mounted animals.
I started my meal with a cocktail ‘bison in the hills’ (wodka, lemon, black current wine). This cocktail was absolutely fabulous, so I ordered another one: the backcountry (bourbon, drambuie, honey), which was also very nice.
Since I had never before eaten caribou meat, I couldn’t resist ordering it here. I was not disappointed: the meat was excellent, very tender. Loved the gratin also.
In total we payed about 100 Canadian dollar for our meal. I would definitely come back here.
