Nestled in the pristine setting of the Rockies, La Terrazza or the Terrace Dining Room serves an Italian menu with a contemporary Canadian twist. Soft-glowing lights and skylight interiors enhance the ambiance, and you can dine whilst enjoying spectacular views of Sulphur Mountain and Mount Norquay through the glass windows.

The Balkan is one of a few representatives of a culinary genre that is rare in the Canadian west; garlic and olive oil spiced Greek dining. While far from the rustling orchards and soft breezes of the Mediterranean, this Hellenic spot still manages to serve up a mean platter of kalamari and keftethes. Colorful Mediterranean paintings and marble busts are interspersed with clambering, tangled vines. The 20 or so tables fill up quickly around suppertime, so it's a good idea to reserve.
Ascend the elegant stairs up to the Rundle Lounge or relax by the Rundle Hall for some of the most majestic views of the Rundle Mountain Range and the Bow River. The Rundle Lounge is bright and cozy by day, yet intimate by night. The Rundle Lounge’s selection of beers, ports, and wines by the glass coupled with the scenic views is a heady experience and reason enough why people like to congregate here for after lunch drinks and cocktails. Appetizers and light soups, salads and sandwiches are also served. The timings are subject to change according to season.
Enjoy a variety of cocktails, wines, spirits and scotches at the Ramsay Lounge of The Fairmont Banff Springs.

The cozy and informal atmosphere of the lounge makes it ideal to catch up on a long conversation with friends. The operation hours of the lounge are not fixed, and change as per the season.
