A perfect spot for a mid-day break during a ski day.

The food is solid, served in a dining area that is warm and comfortable. An easy pick for a break during the day.

We went at lunch time, but it was not crowded when we arrived. The food was fine, though not cooked to specification (we asked for medium and received well done meat). The worst part, by far, was the attentiveness of the wait staff. We would sometimes wait 10 minutes for a refill of water, despite asking our attendant. Our food took around 45 min. For a restaurant with such high prices (~$25 / entree), I expect better service and for my food to be cooked correctly. I do not recommend this restaurant.

A fab place to eat between 11 and 3 if you are on the front side of the mountain. Great food. Our party had steaks which were cooked to perfection. If the weather is kind there are wonderful views from the deck and an ice bar !

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.
