Nice quiet atmosphere. Friendly staff. A little expensive and does not open until 7:00am. Food is excellent and served quickly, coffee was very good, able to order dark brew which I like. Can of course be included on your hotel bill which makes payment easier and for a quicker getaway when you need to be somewhere.

A decent place to have breakfast- we liked that it was in our hotel and easy to access. The buffet is pretty standard fair, our kids liked that there were hot and cold options.

We were staying at the Banff Park Lodge's sister hotel and came here for breakfast every day. The menu was varied and interesting and we enjoyed every meal we had. The Eggs Benedict was to die for! The service was exceptional too - especially Oliana - and I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to everyone!

Our party was well pleased with our different dishes and the speed of service. Our waitress was from Australia and had a great sense of humor. We even got a "crikey, mate" from her!

We had one meal in the Chinook; it was breakfast. My wife and I both had the banana bread french toast. It was very good as was the service. Even though we were 10 minutes past the end of the breakfast serving we were still seated and serve.

Nice restaurant for Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner. Good food, good variety on menu. Service was good. Prices were a bit high, but typical for a resort town. I have heard that the buffets are great.

Thank Bill R
