We loved the chauteau experience. The view outside is just amazing, ensure you book a window seat if possible! Majority of the diners are in their 50s.

We had a wonderful meal at Walliser Stube featuring the fondue. It was delicious and well-prepared, but this is the only fine dining establishment at the Fairmont at Lake Louise, and the prices were truly breathtaking for the four of us. As an example, I had a non-alcoholic bar drink for which we were charged over $10. Wow. Bring a... More

The restaurant was busy, but they managed to squeeze us in, and we were really grateful. There were lots of items on the menu that were really tempting, but we decided to keep it simple and go for the fondue, followed by the chocolate fondue for desert! Perhaps a little basic, but it really fit the bill after a long... More

Okay, the fondue "experience" was tasty but, outside of the fondue itself, probably cost them $40.00. For this amount of food, you will pay $176.00. That's right..."the experience" requires two people at $88 PER PERSON. That's the reason I only gave them three stars. The food was four-star-worthy but I just couldn't get past the pricing.

Our night at the WS was supposed to be the highlight of our Rocky Mountaineer trip. Sadly, it was not. We had reserved a lovely table and had ordered the Chateau Experience. I am attaching pictures of each of the three courses. Our main problem was that the second course, the Chateaubriand, had been sitting at the serving station and... More

We are rarely negative BUT we left this restaurant very disappointed. Sure we were part of an APT tour! Sure we were in the early sitting! Sure, we chose not to order wine, but got "cold shoulder and pressed tongue" as we might say in Australia. Mains were delivered to the table before we had finished entrees, or "how ever... More

We ate at Walliser Stube on our night at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in September 2016 with our friends and had the Chateau Experience- cheese, black truffle fondue which we couldn't stop eating, chateaubriand with mushrooms, fingerling potatoes and vegetables and dark chocolate fondue. The chateaubriand was melt in your mouth delicious. Our wine selections were equally good. Our... More

We enjoyed the Walliser Stube more than any of the restaurants we tried at The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise (or at the Fairmont Banff Springs.) We shared a Kase-Spaetzle to start with. It was lovely. Well-crusted and caramelized and although they suggested it was large enough to share - it really is enough for just one person. I had the... More

We had the Chateau Experience prix fixe dinner for two. WOW! First you get cheese fondue then Chateaubriand then your choice of Toblerone or dark chocolate fondue. Really the best meal we've had in a long time. Staff was friendly and helped with my wine choice. Great food, sorry we couldn't stay longer.
