Golden’s Eagle’s Eye view makes world top 10 list

The Eagle’s Eye Restaurant has received two top honours from TripAdvisor, one of the world’s most trusted tourism websites.

It has been listed as one of the top 10 restaurants with the best view in the world, and it is in our own back yard.

The Eagle’s Eye Restaurant, located at the top of the gondola at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, has received two top honours from TripAdvisor, one of the world’s most trusted tourism websites.

Canada’s most elevated dining experience is not only the recipient TripAdvisor’s amazing view nod, but also its Certificate of Excellence.

“It’s nice to get this one because its unbiased… It’s based completely on reports from our guests,” said manager Marcus Molfenter, who is in his 6th season at the restaurant.

The Certificate of Excellence is awarded to businesses that rank in the top 10 per cent worldwide for traveller feedback. And the excellent feedback can be attributed to three things; the food, the view, and the dedicated team of staff.

“It’s great to see people walk in the door and see that sensation on their face of how great the view is,” said Molfenter. “But this is a huge team effort. Especially in the hospitality world, it won’t work if you don’t have a solid team.”

Creating a menu is a tricky thing for the Eagle’s Eye, considering their clientelle is a mix of people looking for a relaxed, fine dining experience, and skiers who just want a bite and a beer before heading back out onto the slopes.

“We cater to a lot of people, and Chef Sylvain has been able to offer a great menu,” said Molfenter.

It is a combination of these things that has turned Eagle’s Eye not only into a tourism destination, but also a wedding destination.

Brides from all over Canada choose to get married right here to have the stunning mountains serve as the backdrop for their wedding. This season there are 38 weddings at the restaurant, and last year there were 42.

Eagle’s Eye was the only restaurant in Canada to make TripAdvisor’s top 10 amazing views list. It is in the company of some beautiful restaurants around the world, including an underwater restaurant in Maldives, one that encompasses and island in the ocean in Tanzania, an eatery in Greece that has an unobstructed view of the Acropolis.
