The wonder of the wilderness and the respite of remoteness which we saw and felt at the Spirit Island in Maligne Lake literally made us less conscious of hunger and thirst. We simply forgot to take our lunch that day. When it was afternoon and we were preparing to return, we realized we need to eat something. But to our astonishment, all the restaurants were closing. So without wasting any more time, we decided to drive to Fiddle River restaurant in Jasper. And you know what, it was our best decision. A beautiful day ended with a winner dinner!

Fiddle River – A restaurant in Jasper

We were seated beside a window seat overlooking the Canadian Rockies afar. I loved the wooden decor and the atmosphere. While sipping a cocktail of French wine, I went through the menu and found a parade of delights in Fiddle River, an exquisite seafood restaurant in Jasper.

Meeting with Patrice, the owner of Fiddle River

It was an absolute pleasure to meet with soft-spoken Patrice, the owner of the restaurant. Patrice and his team are hot on detail and it shows, from the wooden hollowed-out candle stands on the table, beautiful paintings all over the restaurant wall to the locally sourced finest and freshest ingredients from Canadian seas and farms, coast to coast. They’ve thought carefully about everything.

I like this wooden candle stand!

Time for some appetizers now

I loved a platter full of appetizers including crispy coconut prawn. When you visit Fiddle River, you should try the crispy coconut prawn dish. If you are allergic to Prawns like Siddhartha, then order this very delicious crispy fish and chips.

Time for the main dish

We ordered Fiddle Fish Pot – the signature dish and Alberta Elk Stroganoff. And needless to say, both the dishes were delicious.

Meeting with Sushant, the exquisite cook of Fiddle River

I was deeply touched by the warmth and hospitality of Sushant, the exquisite cook of Fiddle River. He met us and explained one of the recipes in detail.

A lovely surprise

In our conversation with Sushant, we told him that we were celebrating our marriage anniversary that day. He congratulated us and went inside the kitchen. Then after a few minutes, he sent us a plate full of sweet surprises! He sent us a delicious dessert and wished us on our anniversary in a unique way. He added warmth and love on our special day. Thank you so much, Sushant and Patrice!

A delicious dessert
