Mountain top Dining 2,900 ft. Above Banff

Perched on the summit of Banff’s Sulphur Mountain, Sky Bistro is the dining sanctuary in the sky. We pair the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains with a distinctly Canadian menu that features the unique flavours of Canada through a handpicked selection of regionally-sourced local meats, produce and ingredients.
 
Choose to dine a la carte as an add-on to your Banff Gondola experience, or enjoy our signature Sky Experience package that includes Banff Gondola admission and your choice of appetizer and entrée for one great price.
