My wife and I had supper in the Bistro when we stayed in the resort in Sept., 2016. I noticed another patron had a hamburger dinner that looked good so we both decided to order it along with a soup. What a mistake! I mean that in the best sense as everything was delicious and we had ordered too much... More

Excellent menu with lots of choice, including vegetarians. Ate here three nights as food was good and were staying at resort so a short walk back to room. Locally brewed beer and wine were good. Frequented by locals from nearby Lake Louise so must be good.

Last December, 2015, Baker Creek Mountain Resort changed ownership along with the Bistro. It is set in an attractive log cabin. The new chef has very creative presentations and the food (with locally and regionally sourced ingredients) is delicious. The chicken burger has a wonderful buttermilk crust. The farm-raised in North Vancouver Island salmon was excellent and cooked to perfection.... More

We stopped here for coffee and a break whilst driving along the Bow Valley Parkway. There was a very nice atmosphere and the staff were very friendly and the prices were good with top-ups of coffee when required. The creek nearby was worth a visit, too - a very pretty little place!

This bistro is a hidden gem beside Baker Creek. The service is excellent. The food is very good and cooked to perfection. It is 12 kms north of lake louise on the Bow River Parkway. Their prices are reasonable for a remote location like Lake Louise.

Great little restaurant, with delicious food at some of the more affordable prices seen in the area. Lake Louise does not have a lot of restaurant options. Most are either highly expensive (at the Fairmont), smaller cafe/lunch style spots or poorly rated and high priced. This bistro had delicious food, a cozy cabin style setting and prices were moderate. Great... More

Our party enjoyed the casual ambiance, good food, and reasonable prices. All of our meals were very good. I will say that their website truly needs work. In using GPS to find the place we kept bouncing to a cafe at the Baker Creek Lodge....not the same place. Finally we found the exact location through Trip Advisor.

Food: Limited selection, but everything on the menu is excellent. The staff is friendly and make you feel like home. Atmosphere: A rustic wood frame building with a dining room and separate lounge. There are two fireplaces, and views of the surrounding mountains. Very cozy and relaxing atmosphere.
