Have seen the restaurant at lizard creek change multiple times over the course of the last 16 years. RCR now owns the hotel and manages the restaurant. The service was pleasant and efficient but the food regrettable. Came in later in the evening, 3 of us and ordered prosceco pre-meal, and the duck papperdelle. Unfortunately the entire dish was under... More

We were a group of 8, with 6 people visiting from Ontario during the busy Alberta Family Day weekend. Our drink orders were taken within a few minutes of being seated and they arrived quickly. Our table enjoyed sharing a mussel appetizer, then dishes ranging from elk, smoked haddock risotto and salmon. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Our waiter was excellent.... More

We went to check out the ice bar! It was "cool"! Our tour guide was awesome and made it what it was. He was great!

Went to this restaurant after a day of snowboarding and sampling vodkas in the ice bar. It was very quiet given it was mid week. We had a friendly server and our meals were prompt and tasty.

I was staying at Lizard Creek so decided to try this restaurant for dinner! The location is beautiful as you are right on the resort. The wine list is very good and they have a very nice bar. I had the beef tenderloin, which was very good. The menu is good but they didn't have a simple green salad or... More

Ate dinner with my spouse. We each ordered something different (beef tenderloin and lamb striploin). Both our meals were so delicious. We also had cocktails and the bartender came over to our table to make sure everything was ok. It was very good, as he made me a custom cocktail. The dessert was also very good. Will definitely be back.

Cirque did a great job looking after our group of 14. Not one complaint from any of us. Food was great and had decent potions for the price. Nice atmosphere with the large fire burning in the middle of the restaurant.

We stayed at the Lizard Creek Lodge and had dinner at Cirque one night and found the food to be excellent. I had a beautiful duck breast for a starter and the beef tenderloin for my main was excellent. Ice cream for dessert was a perfect finish. The ambiance is nice for a nice dinner with the lighting and fireplace.... More

We tried this restaurant three times, once for dinner and two lunches. Dinner was forced upon us as we were stuck at Fernie Alpine Resort due to freezing rain closing the local roads. First off, the location, if you are actually at the Resort, is excellent, situated at the bottom of the Elk chair. The atmosphere is excellent with a... More

Hi, I'm so sorry you weren't super pleased with your Cirque experience. We do battle the ever rising cost of food (as does everyone) and of course the unique challenge of running a profitable business a top of a mountain. But we're really proud of our kitchen team and floor staff who continually do their best day in and day... More

Part of the Lizard Creek Lodge. We had a vegetarian option and a meat dish. Both were excellent and worth the investment of about £30 per head. Starters and entrées here are separate courses!

We are a fine food & cocktail restaurant. Join us at our 14 seat bar and sip on one of our classic cocktails or have one of our skilled bartenders create something just for you. Our red seal chef uses only the finest and freshest of ingredients in order to deliver what we believe is the best food in Fernie. Cozy up on one of our sofas next to our beautiful wood burning fire, or dine at one of our tables and take in the breathtaking mountain views.
