The French inspired Rocky Mountain Cuisine has recently been documented in a cookbook from Whitecap publishing. The approach to food at Island Lake Lodge is simple; complexity without complication. We use our best efforts to use organic and traditionally raised foods and prepare them with unpretentious flavourings and well-executed techniques. We believe there should be strong connections between plate, planet, people, and culture. It is from this belief that we are committed to the procurement of ethically raised and enviro-wise products and offer them in healthy and balanced dishes. We believe in unprocessed, unrefined, whole foods; ‘real food’. These real foods, traditionally prepared, offer countless flavours and textures and concentrated sources of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

The Food & Beverage Team at Cirque understand the importance of using absolutely fresh, healthy ingredients that are prepared with utmost care. The menu is a Canadian and European fusion with specialties including fresh oysters and bison carpaccio, new twists on old favourites like elk meatball tagliatelle and truffle fries, and classics including spaghetti bolognaise and eggplant parmigiana. The breakfast and après ski menu is equally tantalizing.
