The restaurant offers beautiful views looking both up and down hill. The food is really good but expensive.

Something to be aware of, the washrooms are downstairs from the restaurant in what appears to be a boxed lunch/warmup area for kids lessons. The washrooms are not well maintained. I stopped for a washroom break yesterday and there were used paper towels in one of the sinks. The used paper towel was still sitting in the sink today and the paper towel dispenser was empty today, just like it was yesterday.

In addition, the building is on a septic system and all you can smell from outside is raw sewage.

The Bistro is on the ski slopes halfway down the front face of the Lake Louise Ski Resort. My daughter and I skied there for lunch after a hard morning skiing. The wait staff were super friendly and we had a great view across to Lake Louise and the mountains up and down the valley.
Our lunch of soup and beetroot salad was exceptionally good - really tasty and beautifully presented. Selection and choices were varied including vegan and vegetarian options. The only slight disappointment was the coffee.
Best food and ambiance around! What a pity it’s only accessible from the piste - I would have liked to go back for dinner.

We eat here every lunch time during our 2week Skiing at Lake Louise. Not the cheapest at the resort but the food is really exceptional. The daily specials and the Seafood risotto are a must

We did not realise until we saw a sign on the mountain that a new restaurant had opened at the Lake Louise ski area and we decided to give it a try. We were most impressed. There are not many places to eat on the mountain and they tend to be rather basic in food, service and atmosphere. The Whitehorn Bistro is completely different. A huge restaurant space with an industrial style vibe and very modern decoration. The prices were a bit high but reasonable for the quality of the food. We really enjoyed the kale Caesar salad and the cheese and charcuterie platter was excellent. Generally speaking we do not drink alcohol when we are skiing but this was such a lovely restaurant we could not resist succumbing to a glass of very nice wine. The service was very good, friendly, helpful and professional.
