Feast for the Eyes

Try one of these out-of-town restaurants that combine good food with lovely mountain views:
Becker’s Restaurant That’s Mount Kerkeslin towering behind the Athabasca River. Have your after-dinner port in a Muskoka chair overlooking Roaring River Rapids.
The Emerald at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge Gaze through large windows or take a seat on the terrace to admire vistas of Lac Beauvert, the Whistlers Range and the glowing east face of Mt Edith Cavell.
Maligne Canyon Restaurant The deck overlooks the Maligne River where it begins its tumultuous descent into a limestone gorge with 50 m (164 ft) walls.
The Pines at Coast Pyramid Lake Resort Bask atop the elevated sundeck or take a windowside seat to enjoy the panorama of aptly named Pyramid Mountain and Lake.
Stone Peak at Overlander Mountain Lodge There’s treetop sights of Jasper’s majestic eastern boundary from the rustic restaurant, lounge and balcony.
Treeline Restaurant at Jasper Tramway Share the unobstructed 260-degree view with soaring eagles. See the Athabasca Valley, the town of Jasper and hundreds of peaks from 2277 m/7472 ft.
The View Restaurant at Maligne Lake The multi-tiered sundeck is (we think) Jasper’s largest. Mounts Leah, Samson, Unwin, Charlton and Monkhead (some glacier-clad) frame the largest natural lake the Rockies. — JN
