A perfect spot for a mid-day break during a ski day. The food is solid, served in a dining area that is warm and comfortable. An easy pick for a break during the day.

We eat here every lunch time during our 2week Skiing at Lake Louise. Not the cheapest at the resort but the food is really exceptional. The daily specials and the Seafood risotto are a must

Response from Lake Louise S | Property representative |
Hi there, Unfortunately dogs are not permitted on the gondola/lifts, so would not be able to access Whitehorn Bistro. They can be on the decks at the base area-provided there is no food being served on those decks.
