I was very excited to try the cirque and sadly disappointed. 40$ a plate for a well done steak = dry, flavourless, unacceptable when I had ordered mine medium rare. There was 22 of us in the back room but no one else in the entire restaurant. I wouldn't go back or recommend. We arrived at 630 and didn't eat... More

The food here is lovely but there isn't too much to choose from....the main reason I would return is for the views! And maybe a trip through the icebar :)

My Friend and I decided to stay on the hill rather than drive into town for dinner so we ventured into the Cirque restaurant. OMG! The food was amazing and so was the presentation. We ordered the Halibut and I have to say it is the best I have ever had and I do try it at other restaurants...Service was... More

Lovely restaurant with breathtaking views of the mountains. Service and food both very good. Menu features local flavours - our party ordered Elk chops, Halibut, steak, Seafood Linguine and everyone was very satisfied. They also make a mean cocktail - try the Garden Gimlet. There's a small Ice Bar which could be fun if you were staying in the hotel... More

We came here for our anniversary and were really happy with our whole experience. Our server was very accommodating and personable. He also could make one heck of a cocktail. The butternut squash and goat cheese risotto was really decadent and flavorful. Perfect place for a special evening out.

I wasn't going to review CirQue based on the many times we ate at CirQue throughout the winter season and decided I would wait until Summer to see if they are finally running on all cylinders. I cant say that we had any horrible experiences at CirQue during the Winter season, however everytime we went it was a totally different... More

We sat outside, enjoyed the view for hours while sipping well made cocktails, Bottingtons and truly enjoyed freshly grilled burgers. A perfect Saturday afternoon. The kids played in the pool while the adults connected and celebrated our friends birthday. Fabulous

I was with some friends for a golf trip in Fernie and someone in the group suggested we try this place for dinner. I had no idea what to expect which added to the sheer enjoyment of my experience. We went for the "Chef's choice" which included a delicious duck appetizer, followed by a perfectly cooked steak and a cheese... More

Came here on business and found the bar and restaurant staff warm and welcoming. Good selection of drinks, warm fireplace and amazing mountain scenery. Dinner was a limited "fixed" menu but delightful. I had the elk ribeye for entree and deep fried cheesecake for desert, then retired to the comfortable bar for evening nightcaps. The staff (Megan) and Manager (Aileen)... More

We had lunch at the renovated Cirque restaurant and really enjoyed ourselves. We were greeted by Aileen, who always makes us feel welcome. Our server was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was lovely, the restaurant having been renovated recently. We were happy to see that the gorgeous stone fireplace remained, as a centrepiece of the room. It was lovely to... More

We are a fine food & cocktail restaurant. Join us at our 14 seat bar and sip on one of our classic cocktails or have one of our skilled bartenders create something just for you. Our red seal chef uses only the finest and freshest of ingredients in order to deliver what we believe is the best food in Fernie. Cozy up on one of our sofas next to our beautiful wood burning fire, or dine at one of our tables and take in the breathtaking mountain views.
