The Candlelight Lodge is situated up the road commanding a lovely view of the mountain. The restaurant is cosy with an intimate bar. We had the cheese fondue which was delicious. Following that we had the meat fondue. The cut of the meat was good however the flame under our fondue kept going out which was very annoying. The service... More

The cheese fondue was definitely the highlight of our meal. The portion for one was more than enough for two people, at $28 as a starter. Mains were okay. Chocolate fondue was good but lacked creativity, could have been more interesting. Breakfast - continental was basic but okay. Again could have been more interesting and creative, especially given that its... More

This is a really nice restaurant and the food was delicious. It was fun to be eating in an Alpine style restaurant Although yummy, gnocchi was a small serve and quite pricey. Fondue the specialty and better priced. comfortable bar area for pre dinner schnapps

It has a warm n lovely bar and a kids play room! Staff were way overworked and yet never once complained. Highly recommended. BOOK! We saw 2 hungry parties turned away despite empty tables- fully...

We had dinner at the candlelight lodge, after a big day on the slopes, I had the rib eye fillet although overcooked was magnificent, the downside we were having dinner as two families and 5 children who all ordered from the children menu, portion size was far too small with all the children agreeing that although the spaghetti was very...

Our trekking group stayed here for one night and the rooms were very comfortable and warm. The walls aren't sound proof so you can hear noise from other rooms at times. The staff are really friendly and the continental breakfast was good. I would stay here again.

Found the candlelight lodge by calling reservations at Thredbo. What a gem. We were only there for one night and found the place very comfortable. Andrew and his wife (hosts) are very friendly and offered plenty of information and advice for activities in the area. The room was warm and the beds comfortable. The place is getting older but still... More

Beautiful little restaurant. We had the cheese fondue to start and it was fantastic. The starter portion is generous, we ordered two between 6 people and it was more than enough. The mains were great and the chocolate fondue was popular with the kids. Great little bar with a fireplace and friendly staff.

  • This restaurant is at Candlelight Lodge
( Winter Only) The fully licensed a la carte restaurant and bar has been part of Thredbo folklore for several decades. We feature both Australian and international cuisine, however, a favourite with our patrons and specialty of the house is fondue. Boasting the same unsurpassed views as the restaurant and your room, the bar has European beers and imported Schnapps and fine Australian wine on offer and for those sometimes important not to be missed occasions we also have ski movies running in the bar. A feature of any stay at Candlelight Lodge is to join the other guests in the bar and on the deck to watch the weekly flare run before fireworks light up the mountain each Saturday at 6pm during the ski season.
