  • Hours

The Fairview serves contemporary Canadian cuisine, sourcing local organic produce and other quality ingredients from across the country, and focusing on a farm-to-table approach. The Fairview’s signature cocktails, exemplifying modern mixology, complement exquisite dishes.

Atmosphere & Accolades

The Fairview overlooks world-renowned Lake Louise, where  you can watch canoeing in the summer, and ice skating in the winter. The restaurant’s heritage dining room with high ceilings and large windows evokes an old grand hotel atmosphere. Its classic elegant décor combined with its excellent service will leave a lasting impression.

The Fairview has a resort casual dress code—denim must be in good condition and no athletic wear is permitted. The restaurant’s master wine list, which features many Canadian wines, has won Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for two years running.
