Best Places to Dine in the Rockies
Three great restaurants plus a six-pack of bars to keep you fed and hydrated

When it comes to aprs-dining, there’s a time for nachos and a time for haute cuisine. If you find it’s time for the latter, look no further than Eden restaurant at the Rimrock hotel in Banff. Eden’s fine-dining menu features multi-course tasting menus with artfully presented dishes of impeccable quality and creativity.
Is there anything more mountain-y than fondue? Last year, the Post Hotel launched Stbli, a cozy fondue restaurant that serves traditional Swiss-style cheese, beef and chocolate fondues. There are only 24 seats, so reservations are definitely recommended.
It may seem strange to have excellent sushi in a mining/ski town like Fernie, but it’s true, nonetheless. By far the most popular restaurant in town, it doesn’t take reservations, so you’ll most likely have to wait for a table, but don’t fret – it’s worth it.
