They were upset at our arrival and couldn't barely be bothered to come to our table. It took a lot for me to not say anything. Go elsewhere unless you can accept kids who are working to live in Lake Louise and have no problem making sure you're aware of it.

A local suggested this place. It was a little hard to find, but we arrived just before the big dinner crowd, were seated immediately and server was attentive. I had spicy Cajun chicken quesadilla and hubby had a delicious Reuben sandwich. Serving sizes were quite large for the price. Huge crowd in line waiting for tables as we left. There... More

I love that this restaurant is inside a hostel. The vibe about the place is chilled out, family friendly, and down home. The food is good value and the pasta dishes include salad and a scoop of ice cream. The beer is cold, the art is vibrant, and the servers seem like they like their job. We got lucky and... More

After a day of hiking around Lake Louise, we were hungry for a big plate of food. We arrived to the restaurant around 5:30pm and it was probably half full. There were seats inside and outside. We were seated very promptly. We ordered the bison burger and the greek chicken souvlaki wrap. Both meals arrived after around 10-15 minutes. Portion... More

Whilst my marinara pasta was very tasty, it was barely warm! Unfortunately, we didn't see our server for some considerable time after our dinner was delivered, therefore, we were not asked the customary 'is everything to your liking etc.,' and when we did eventually see a member of staff with the bill (the hostess, I believe), she just said that...

Came today for breakfast and dinner . Both were delicious. Loved the omelette and the French toast was very good. For dinner had the chicken quesadillas and the salmon fettuccini alfredo which were both very good followed by the sticky toffee pudding cake. The price was also excellent when compared to other restaurants in the areas. Would definitely recommend!

Had the jalapeno burger and it was awesome! We were on a long road trip and stopped into Lake Louise for a short visit. We used tripadvisor and found this place. The best thing about it is you dont need to empty your wallet to eat here like so many other things in the National Parks. Its not cheap but... More

Breakfast pretty good. Eggs good, oatmeal good. Nothing too fancy, just basic well cooked food. Seemed to be a hangout for locals, and backpackers. It is in a hostel.

Elk and bison burgers were thick and juicy. Fries, yam or regular, were crispy and delicious. It's hidden in the hostel area. Careful, by 6pm the restaurant was full.

Very disappointed after reading the reviews. Actually would have preferred to not find the place after reading that it was hard to find. Ordered the chicken club and other than the bread there wasn't much more on the sandwich.
