To be seated at Fairview Bar and Restaurant is to find yourself nestled in the heart of Banff National Park. Whether taking in the views framed by the arched windows overlooking Lake Louise’s glacial waters or indulging in the seasonal Rocky Mountain Wild–inspired menus, Fairview provides a refined spot to savour your alpine getaway. When enjoying a meal here, you’re celebrating the region and the farmers who nurture it. Elegant and vibrant dishes highlight everything from wild boar to Brant Lake wagyu, accompanied by a bounty of local produce, while distinctive cocktails and the comprehensive wine list round out your experience in the art deco–detailed space. Dark marble accented with brass curvature sets the scene for evenings of special occasions or relaxed bar lounging alike. As you spot Fairview’s namesake peak just across the lake, it’s hard to deny the sense of connection to the mountains that surround this corner of the storied Chateau.
