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.

For dinner you can get generous portions of decent food (entree plus soup or salad, maybe a scoop of spumoni) for CAD $25, plus tax and tip. Peyto's is a very popular place, so dine early (5 or 6 p.m.) if you don't like waiting for a table. The restaurant is attached to the Alpine Centre Hostel, and has the... More

This is a friendly eatery alongside the hostel. It gets busy because it is cheaper than the restarants in the area but you get what you pay for. It is casual dining with casual food - salads, burgers, fish and chips, pasta - and reasonably priced beer and wine. The staff are friendly and accommodating and the atmosphere was buzzy.... More

The food is decent for the price and service isn't too slow. Got a beer and used the internet, shared a table with some other adventurers which was great.

It's the place the locals go for lunch so you know it can't be bad. Plenty of diner-style eats with generally good service. It's relatively quick, convenient, hearty and helpfully located close to town and trails. Lots of sunny tables and patio picnic tables for those nice warm days. My only criticisms would be that the menu hasn't changed in... More
