Dining at the Banff Gondola

Experience mountaintop dining 2,900 ft. above Banff. Indulge in a delicious meal, sip cocktails watching the sunset or fuel up for your mountaintop adventure with several great dining options at the Banff Gondola.


With six Rocky Mountain ranges as a backdrop through glass walls, Sky Bistro pairs the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains with a distinctly Canadian menu that features a handpicked selection of local meats, produce and ingredients.

Raise a glass of craft beer from Banff or Canmore. Sip vodka and gin from Banff’s only distillery. Taste fruits from farms across Alberta and B.C. and savour naturally-raised meats from Canmore and Central Alberta. Nova Scotia Lobster Roll, Montreal Smoked Meat, Confit Duck Poutine, Alberta Beef Shortrib and Pacific Sockeye Salmon are just a few of the dishes designed to embody the unique flavours of Canada and the Rocky Mountains for a dining experience that is as spectacular as the views.
