    Incredible experience! Go for the full fondue meal, try the hot rock for the meat. And use the phones!!

    Fun (and kinda weird) meal, but you will need to wash your clothes after a visit here.

    The cheese fondue was great, get the meat on the hot rock. You'll leave the place smelling like you've been smoked. Bonus: phones at every table.

    Exotic fondue contains shark, crocodile, kangoroo, ostrich, frog legs, buffalo and venison (they replaced alligator and rattlesnake but it was great anyway). It was really exotic.

    Wife and I had a great time. Food was great. Only downfalls; to loud and service was extremely slow.

    Fondues are fascinating, but expensive. Decor could really use a refresh.

    Ask for the caribou it's amazingly tender. Also the hunters plate it's a great choice!

    A)way over priced for what you get. B)do not take a table in the back. The ventilation in that place had our eyes burning the whole meal. C)it's so loud you can't hear anything your date is saying.

    Don't be afraid to try a really different kind of fondue (alligator/game meat, etc). Best place to try something new!!

    Got the fish platter and meat platter - definitely plenty food for three people, if you also get the cheese fondue too!!

    If you dont eat too much is better you order cheese fondue and dessert because regular cheese fondue its double than fondue cheese in 4 course menu.

    A must do if you're in Banff. But, by all means, let the staff know you don't appreciate walking through the wall of smoke from the owner sitting there because HE thinks he's the owner so It's ok.

    This is one of the most amazing you will ever have! Don't forget to call one of the other tables in the restaurant with phone at your table and introduce yourself then find where they are from.
