Fiddle River

This cozy, pine finished dining room offers Rocky Mountain ambiance. From candle-lit window-side tables patrons are treated to mountain views that pair nicely with the exquisite, made-from-scratch cuisine. Chef’s inspired cooking can also be enjoyed on the garden patio. Menu and chalkboard specials feature fresh seasonal ingredients that include BC fish, and Alberta beef and game. The extensive international wine selection includes interesting Canadian vintages. Both stairs and an elevator (that accommodates wheelchairs) access Fiddle River’s second floor location.
