We loved this restaurant in our Lodge. Great food by an English Chef and fantastic huge open fire. Good specials on mondays and tuesdays made it very good value.

Having just arrived at the ski resort, we wanted a simple meal, so we opted for the bar menu rather than the more fancy & expensive Cirque menu. It was a quiet evening & the helpful waiter said that we could sit at a table rather than side by side at the bar. We started with warm olives, followed by... More

As Calgary "locals", we've been coming to Lizard Creek Lodge and the various iterations of the restaurant at least a couple of times a year for well over a decade, essentially since Lizard Creek opened. Generally the restaurant(s) have been good to excellent. However, with this newest iteration, the "Cirque", things have taken a turn in the wrong direction. Last... More

For a sleepy little ski village like Fernie Alpine, the hill not the town, Cirque is a real winner. There's not much up here and it must be hard for Cirque to make this work but they do. We were very impressed.

Not cheap but what do you expect for on mountain fine dining. I had the elk ribeye and it was probably the best I've ever had and I have eaten a lot of elk steaks. I ordered mine medium rare. I'm normally a medium guy with beef but game usually gets dry if you cook it very much. It was... More

Since the renovation, Cirque is the best spot on the mountain for ambience, great food and classic après. The management and staff are excellent and if you find your way into the Ice Bar you won't leave disappointed.

This place has everything to convince you to try it... Then, disappoints. The ice bar is lame, the food is meh and overpriced and few locals frequent it. Gee, I wonder why. The only saving grace is the servers, DJ and bar staff. They seem to understand customer service. I'm guessing that the problem is management.

Hello, I'm really sorry to hear that you were disappointed by your experience at Cirque. We are really proud of our Chef and her food and the overall feedback on it has been amazing so I am really surprised you only found it to be average. We love the Ice Bar and most others really do as well but drinking... More

Came here with friends who love this place and are practically regulars. Such beautiful decor, and the view outside would be amazing during the day.

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.
