Good spot for a cold beer and standard pub fare. It was busy when we were there but we were in town for an event in summer so expected it to be busy. The beer was cold, the drinks selection reasonable with enough for everyone. The food was standard pub grub, burgers, fish and chips, lasagne, etc. which is hard... More

It was pretty good for a bistro. We got burgers and Parma, both very good. Given the small number of patrons fresh chips would have been expected but came from the Bain Marie, a bit of a let down, they also served desert with our mains, might need to split order next time.

I had a delicious chicken skewer salad but my husband's toasted ham and cheese sandwich was disgusting but chips were great. It tasted yukky.

As one of the less expensive places on the Mountain, the bistro gets packed early. There are not a lot of Seats so get there early. Good solid tasty meals at a reasonable price.

The meals were typical counter meals, you order and collect yourselves. The noise was a problem for us - we had to get out as soon as possible after eating. But if you want a fun place OK for kids with quick service and standard food, then this is it.

Stopped in for dinner with husband and kids, ordered two steak, chips and salad and two kids meals chicken strips and chips. The price was $80 so for a pub you would expect a meal that was tasty and a meal you were likely to enjoy. No such luck here, after trying to soar through steaks that were ordered medium... More

Great atmosphere and great food. We had dinned at some of the restaurants and thought lets give the pub ago. So glad we did. Enjoyed a couple of drinks looking out over the ski slopes while waiting for our meals to be prepared. Had a good feed at a good price. (Give the garlic bread a miss). Put a few... More

Well located overlooking the base of the Ski fields. It offers refuge for the weary skiers. Pricing as expected on the high side. Plenty of room and warm inside. Standard pub grub.

Who would have guessed the local would be such a Dimond in the rough. At first glance this hidden gem appears to be your average run of the mill pub, but the food was something much more. My meal of choice was the Perch it was cooked to perfection with a golden crispy skin and moist flakes of white flesh.... More

We decided to try here after eating at the other Village restaurants. I wouldn't say it's cheap for what you get. The children's meal was more expensive than another better quality restaurant we ate at. The lasagne was cold in sections. However, the cauliflower soup was delicious but had the tiniest roll with it. The bistro was crowded and noisy.... More
