We ate at the Sky Bistro restaurant at the top of the Sulphur Mountain Gondola. Great food and the best fries ever. First time I've dined at the top and won't be the last.

Hi SkipT924, The fries are AMAZING! I’m so happy to hear your experience at the Banff Gondola was enjoyable. In fact, Sky Bistro is ranked the #1 restaurant in Banff so I’m glad it’s living up to its reputation. I definitely recommend checking out the Northern Lights Alpine Kitchen for casual market style dining or our Rooftop Patio for a lite-bite or thirst quenching beverage during your next visit! Thank you again for the glowing review. Best Regards, Michael McMaster Guest Experience Supervisor

Hi payelgangulyroy, Thank you for the 5 star review on Tripadvisor! We are happy to hear you enjoyed the restaurants, mountain views and the boardwalk to Sanson’s Peak during your visit to the Banff Gondola. Sky Bistro is ranked the #1 restaurant in Banff so I’m glad it lived up to its reputation. We look forward to hosting you again during your next visit to Banff National Park. PS.

This is a must-do at least once on a visit to Banff! I've visited in spring, fall and summer. Any season is fine but you get the best views up at Sulphur Mountain on a clear day. There's an information centre inside before you check the outdoors on top. The restaurant/cafe also
