We almost always have at least one meal here when we are at the hotel. Can't find a better view at a restaurant. Food was great as usual. It is a bit pricey, but the view is worth it.

Quite casual dining but reasonable value. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It was good that you didn't have to book for this restaurant and we did not have to wait long for a table on any occasion.

a good selection of food and beverage choices. Service is in general good and the food is delicious, however the view completes it. It is absolutely beautiful.

We had lunch at the Lakeview Lounge most days of our stay. Each day the food was excellent. The wait staff can't be beat. And then there is the view! Amazing.

Wonderful afternoon tea with champagne, and some wonderful nibbles both sweet and savoury. 10/10. Everything was freshly made , the scones were superb with fresh clotted cream, lemon curd and strawberry jam. The view was to die for. Spectacular.

The views are what took us to stop here, we decided to have some drinks and dinner. The waitress was very attentive and the food was pretty good prices are what you would expect to pay at this lakeview lounge. Bison was very good. The menu is limited compared to most restaurants but delicious everything on the menu.

We ate here before our sleigh ride around the lake. The views were absolutely breathtaking! We ordered a few things to share, including nachos, artichoke dip, and French onion soup. They were a bit heavy on the cheese, but amazing otherwise! It was very busy, and the staff did their best to make sure we had a great experience. All... More

Went here a couple of nights for after dinner drinks. Sitting in front of the massive arch window looking out over the ice bar and ice sculpture towards the frozen lake with lights and Christmas decorations, whilst sipping on a nice warm spicy cider, was just great.
