After a nice cruise on Maligne Lake we thought we would check out this spot for a glass of wine and a beautiful view. It was 4:40 and we approached one of the servers to ask if we could have a table and he said...no we are closed. The posted hours for the restaurant are 12-5. We decided to approach one of the bartenders to see if we could purchase a glass of wine and she said of course follow me and we can find a spot for you. The server whose name was Ansh said don’t seat them I already told them we were closed. For someone in the service industry to treat a potential customer with such disrespect is a good way to drive away business. I don’t know who the manager is for this restaurant but apparently Ansh didn’t receive the training on customer service, We won’t be backMore

The View is best if you can dine in good weather as it's located outside. Our day was perfect, so that we could sit and enjoy the lake while eating. The food was good, but a bit expensive, as you would expect in such a...setting. Staff was attentive and prompt.More

Great menu and Great view of the Rocky Mountain. You will love it if you like to chill in nature. There are a lot of trails and lake activities around and you will love it. 素晴らしい自然と、料理を楽しめる場所です。近くにはたくさんのハイキングスポットがあり、湖でできるアクティビティも豊富で、あなたを飽きさせることはありません。

We went in for a couple pints and a burger after paddling the morning away on maligne lake. Our server Noah was very friendly with a great personality and mustache. We liked him, the juicy burger and the beer so much we had a second...pint and then decided to take his trail recommendation and hike the bald hills trail which despite the signs was 15 km and 780 m of elevation 10/10 reccomend the view, 10/10 reccomend Noah, 2/10 reccomend the second pint before slogging your way up a mountain. Great experience all around.More

It’s a nice cafe on the lake side with average fast food but a good view. Coffee good and price reasonable. Eat here if hungry and want to relax and look at lake. Imagine it get so very busy in height of season we visited...late spring and quiet but has a huge capacity.More

The view is exceptional, overlooking the lake. Love the patio; there is inside seating as well. Food was really good, but menu is mostly dinner appropriate and is high priced.. There is a cafeteria, which is more lunch appropriate and shares the same patio.
