Another great night at the Waldhaus - they never disappoint! Had the Bison short ribs with horseradish mashed potatoes... I have found my new favourite dish. Loved it! Staff - Mike, our waiter was great..... Bartender downstairs makes a killer spicy Caesar. Thanks for a fun night!

We chose to celebrate my husband's
We chose to celebrate my husband's 44th birthday with friends at the Waldhaus. It is a wonderful restaurant with Bavarian food and flare. Our servers, Mark and Angela, were absolutely fantastic. They were attentive, helpful, and had oustanding senses of humour. Everyone had different dishes and we all loved them. Of particular note were the Baked Onion Soup (cheesey, rich broth...just plain ol' delicious), the meat and cheese board (fresh, with a great variety), and the fondue (the Farmers, the Bison, and the Toblerone - amazingly well done). We even went to the pub the night before and had their delicious wings and pretzels. Our server in the pub, Steve, was so much fun! Great experience in both places!

Best Meal in the Mountains!
My husband and I celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary at the Waldhaus on May 4th. As we left the restaurant we both agreed it was the best meal we had eaten out in a long time. We started with the Goulash Soup and beet salad. Our entrees consisted of the Jager Schnitzel and the trout. The flavors of the food were amazing - so well prepared! The wine list was wonderful and the service impeccable. I would recommend this restaurant for any occasion as it was casual yet formal if that makes sense. We can't wait to return to Banff and the Waldhaus.

An Enjoyable Evening
This restaurant is a short walk or shuttle ride from the hotel but worth the effort. We were seated in the smaller room with a view over the old golf course or the Banff river. This room is quieter that the large room next door. The food and service was excellent and we enjoyed the meal very much.

Hansel and Gretel's cottage found!
We had a wonderful meal at the Waldhaus during our recent stay at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. The Waldhaus is located in such a beautiful Bavarian cottage tucked in the woods, on a crest above the Spray River... It really does feel like you've found Hansel and Gretel's cottage when you arrive! It's a short (paved) walk through the woods from the main hotel and they do offer a shuttle service to any guest who doesnt want to make the 5-8 minute walk... The food is Swiss/German- we shared a fabulous cheese fondue appetizer for 2, I had delicious salmon with rosti potatoes, asparagus salad, and lemon beurre blanc and my husband gushed over the weiner schnitzle. Kids menu cherry sorbet was one of the best things we've eaten all summer!

Very neat old building with a definite German hunting lodge feel. The food was very good, though also very expensive. The wait staff was great.

Excellent service with a nice view if you are seated in the dinning room off to the side with a view of the river. Highly recommend the cheese and charcuterie plate for 2. The only downside was having to wait to a shuttle ( runs twice every hour) or walking in the rain to get back to the main building of the hotel.

10 out of 10 for this amazing spot!! Couldn't have enjoyed it more, the food was terrific, the waitress was polite, attentive (but not overbearing), the wine was spectacular and the shuttle service was very convenient. Would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for an intimate dining experience!

Great food, great atmosphere.
The food was outstanding, albeit a not so traditional spin on European fare. The prices were fair considering the high quality of the meal and the ambience. I would have expected a more inclusive beer menu with more unique German and European options, there was a decent selection, just not a lot to choose from. In the end I did find a nice hefeweizen that satisfied my palate. The cheese and bread fondue was amazing and was Europe at its best, not to mention filling. This fondue shared between 2 plus and entrée each was enough to leave any room for dessert or coffee. I would highly recommend this, especially as it is not on Banff Ave. and therefore a much more serene environment for a relaxing and classy meal.

This is an Alpine (German, Austrian, Swiss) restaurant -- they have imported German beer and a good selection of appetizer and main dishes. I enjoyed the venison medallions and my hubby had pork chop -- very delicious. The escargot appetizer was nice as described and as expected. We were so full, could not try the dessert. They have various choices of Fondue.

Great German cuisine
Took my wife here for her birthday dinner and it did not disappoint. Great classic German dishes and beer. Recommend the pork chop and the roulade. They even brought her strawberries and melted tobblerone (sp?) for dessert!

Much better restaurants in Banff to go to. The food was just average.
