The restaurant was freezing. They had a beautiful fireplace but it wasn’t lit. Even the servers were cold. Not sure why it wasn’t on, as it was -20 at the base. Service was very slow (waited 20 mins for a drink). Our apps were good (salmon Tatar, lobster avocado salad), but our mains were awful. I had braised lamb shank. Not only was it cooked terribly, the cut was pitiful. My fiancé got the bison and my sister got the duck, they were very disappointed as well. The only positive thing I can say about the restaurant was the location- it was at the top of the hill. Personally, I would not return. Value for your money is not worth it either ($375 for 3 people including drinks).
The view and experience were wonderful but the food and service were completely underwhelming. I would recommend timing your arrival with the sun setting.
Not impressed. $15 for 2 frozen chicken fingers and call it a kids meal? $12 for soup with a dried out store-bought bun? I wanted to ask why my chicken panini came out purple, but took the risk because we were starving. They advertise world-class dining because of the location? Everything costs way to much just because they have to bring it up the Gondola. I promise you, the food is nothing special, and definitely not world class. The highlight of our meal was watching a guest at the bar pop his pimples and eat them. Superb.
Best scenery and view of any restaurant that you could find anywhere PERIOD.
The view as with any tip of the mountain restaurant was very refreshing. No issues with any of our orders and came within a good time frame to get back out and enjoy the powder!
Just go. You'vee been skiing all morning at one of the most challenging ski resorts. You know you'll pay $20 for a ham sandwich in the cafeteria. Be good to yourself and eat a great meal with your friends. Even my hard core ski buddies said it was worth the extra time to sit in a real restaurant, eat a great meal with one of the best veiws of the Canadian Rockies.
I had the duck patte for appetizer and the boar spare ribs and they were excellent. Shared bench seating and open format made for a loud background noise. Service was very good but a bit neglected since the crowd was large at visit. Wine by the glass selection was very limited, but the cocktails were very well made. A bit on the expensive side for the offerings but considering the remote location a fair deal.
The meal exceeded my expectations. I wish I had gone for lunch, too.
Eating at the Eagle Eye is the way we end our annual skim week at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and the meal is the highlight of our trip. The food is always good and the service is superb. Already looking forward to next year!
Hands down, best views on the mountain. Great place to stop for an afternoon hot chocolate, sunset cocktail or outstanding meal.
