Winner

Waldhaus Restaurant

Located inside the famous Fairmont Banff Springs hotel, Waldhaus Restaurant is a cozy spot that’s one of the most sought-after reservations in Banff. The little Bavarian oasis serves savoury bites of delicious German-inspired cuisine — think schnitzels, multi-course fondue dinners, sauerkraut, pretzels and other hearty delights. The drink menu is heavy on German-style beers to complement the food and has a fun wine and cocktail list with a worldy selection of vino, including a few German vintages. The restaurant’s scenic surroundings only add to its popularity.

405 Spray Ave., Banff, 403-762-6860, fairmont.com
