Cliffhouse Bistro

Cliff House Bistro



With the retro-cool look of a European chalet, complete with mid-century modern décor and uninterrupted views over the town of Banff, the Cliffhouse Bistro at Mt Norquay is be one of the best mountain-gazing lunch venues in the Canadian Rockies. Simple, understated, and with a flair for mountain casual, the Cliffhouse Bistro is all about relaxed, upmarket lunch fare. Albertan flavours presented with a twist is their specialty. Sitting at an elevation of 6900 ft., and accessed by riding the Lone Pine chair lift, the Cliffhouse Bistro has been a social meeting spot since it opened in the 1950s. A small, thoughtfully-prepared list of upscale-yet-unpretentious dishes – influenced by their Canadian Rocky Mountain home, and infused with urban trends –is on offer, all freshly prepared in their kitchen. Locally-crafted brews, sodas, and Canadian wines are also available, to complete your Cliffhouse Bistro experience.

About Alberta

Welcome to Alberta, where the bold, the adventurous and the free-spirited come to play. 

Alberta is home to North America’s largest mountain range. It’s where dinosaurs once roamed and where dense forests make way to open prairies. You can swim in jewel-coloured lakes, walk across glaciers and climb frozen waterfalls. If you have a Wild Side, you’ll feel right at home here.
