DINE ABOVE BANFF Anchored at over 2,200 meters above sea level, the Banff Gondola’s Sky Bistro sits on the summit of Sulphur Mountain. With six Rocky Mountain ranges as a backdrop, this remarkable restaurant promises an exhilarating gondola ride followed by a mountain top dining experience. Lunch and dinner menus celebrate the panorama of Canadian cuisine, with ingredients drawn from both ocean coasts, plus wholesome prairie staples including world-renowned Alberta beef. Complemented by local wine, beer and spirits, it makes for a unique dining experience above Banff.

    What a wonderful experience! From the scenic gondola ride up to the scrumptious meal at Sky Bistro. Excellent! We got the beef rib and some scallops. My husband said the seafood chowder was the best he’s ever had. I felt that way about their bread. So delicious! Excellent service and the views were breathtaking

    The food was adequate but expensive. I told my companion that it satisfied my hunger but wasn’t special. The waiter made a couple of mistakes in his explanation of the food but that did not matter much. The weather was cloudy so the amazing views were absent. The service was good, the restaurant lovely and the gondola ride to it was a fun adventure. If I had it to do over, I’d likely do the buffet next door.

    Service was good, food was great. It’s definitely on the expensive side. Unfortunately the day we went it was super misty, so the view wasn’t really there. Our server Georgia was quite nice. Overall it a was a good experience.

    The Sky Bistro is a wonderful place to visit if you prioritize atmosphere and service. The view is undeniably beautiful, making it an ideal spot for romantic dinners or special occasions. While the food ranges from fair to average . However, the exceptional service and stunning vistas may be enough for some. For a dining experience with a captivating view, The Sky Bistro delivers .
