Old Salzburg Restaurant – Radium, British Columbia

This has been an interesting weekend in the making. I originally wanted to have a nice relaxing soak in Banff Hot Springs, but when we got there, the pools were closed for maintenance. So, we decided to go out to Radium instead as we knew we’d be back in Banff within a few weeks. During our weekend stay here, we dined at Old Salzburg Restaurant which we’ve driven by numerous times, but finally stopped in.

We were greeted right away this lovely evening and got seated in a perfect little table. They took our order and brought us this awesome bread basket. It was quite tasty, for a bread actually! I wasn’t even that hungry but wanted to eat so I can go back to the hot springs!

I actually ordered their special, which was a special take on their Old Salzburg Pfandl with extras! They made their gravy with their local beer and added a piece of lamb! This was amazing as there was grilled chicken, beef and lamb in their hot skillet topped with gravy!

Another of our favourites to have when we’re in an European restaurant is to order schnitzel, so we had an order of Jagerschnitzel which as usual is a breaded pork with ham & bacon topped with a mushroom sauce. The Jagerschnitzel here was truly exceptional as the crispness of the pan fried breaded pork stayed crispy till the end even with gravy.

We were super stuffed as the portions were massive and at a fantastic price, it made the dinner very enjoyable. Becuase I enjoyed myself, that’s when I order desserts… so, we ordered their Apple Strudel with Ice Cream to split. This was absolutely something we didn’t need, but I really wanted. Thin layers of pastry that wrapped thin warm apple splices with a perfect little sauce inside, with the side of ice cream – you just can’t lose! So, when in Radium, do it! Let me tell you though, I was quite self conscious of myself when in a bathing suit right after in the hot springs, but the nice thing is, no one knows me here! 🙂

Overall, this was an amazing dinner and it was the perfect meal on a cold fall day. The food, price, service was all awesome and the atmosphere was very warm and intimate. They can accommodate larger groups as well so it’s just a great place to go for everyone!

Helna’s Strube – Radium, British Columbia

we took a day trip to Radium, BC as I wanted to go on a road trip to anywhere but staying in our city. I forgot this city closed early and by the time we got here, it was dinner time and a lot of places were closed. We were able to get a table on the patio of Helna’s Strube and it was perfect!

Once we ordered, on this chilly autumn’s evening they brought out a beautiful and warm Bread Basket which was perfect. I’m not sure if it was as warm as I think the bread was as my fingers were kind of frozen already.. and if you know me, more often than not my fingers are cold! So, this was already amazing as is!

I just ordered right off the menu as my hubby ordered their special, which was an awesome deal! He ended up getting a salad and dessert with his meal for just a bit more. Of course, I ate the dessert as I always claim I need the sweets to keep me sweet. Anyway, I ordered their Trout “Müllerin“, a generous sized trout pan-fried in a lemon parsley butter, served with rice. The skin was super amazing, thin and crispy and the trout was perfectly cooked, not fishy at all.

As mentioned, my better half ordered the special and it came with Baby Green Salad which is something that looked beautiful and not overdressed of a salad.

His main meal was their Mushroom Schntzel or the “Jaeger Schnitzel” which is breaded pork loin in a white wine mushroom cream sauce, served with spätzle. This was an amazing special and just because it was one, the portion size was still enormous!

Then, just when you think you’re done… the dessert course! Always make room for dessert after a great meal! This one was their Coupe Strawberry, a simple, easy and delicious dessert!

Overall, this was a fantastic and casual place to be. The food was stunning and tasty, the service was perfect. We definitely enjoyed ourselves at Helna’s and as everything was perfect, we’d recommend spending an evening here!

Bighorn Meadows Resort – Radium, BC

I’ve been very fortunate and got to take a weekend trip with my family to Radium, BC which is just over 3 hours (driving) away from Calgary where we stayed at the Bighorn Meadow Resort just off of their Main Street.

Here we stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which offers 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a dining area, kitchen and living space. It’s like a condo, but it’s a resort. Once we opened the door, we were greeted with a giant entrance way with tons of storage.

Then, in the master bedroom, it offered a giant king bed and an en-suite bath. The room itself has a TV in the room and the bathroom offered a rain shower head standup shower which is super sized! All the bathroom amenities was by Bath & Body which was really nice for the skin and nose!

The second bedroom was smaller but it had 2 single beds and instead of an en-suite, there was a general main bath just across the hallway that offered a giant corner soaker tub. Both the bathrooms are extremely spacious and luxurious. In the suite itself, there’s washers and dryers – so you can do laundry if you’re doing an extended stay!

The main living area was the best, with an electric fireplace, built in speaker, and really comfortable seating area – we sat and enjoyed some movies during our stay!

The kitchen was very impressive, with a full function kitchen, with dishes, pots and pans and your basic utensils, we even got to make ourselves breakfast during our stay. There is a dining area which seats 6 people comfortably as well.

Overall, our stay was more than we could ask for. It was spectacular and much more than we could have imaged! The resort does say there are movies that you can borrow, but it didn’t actually specify there’s a fee to borrow them – so just be careful! But, we left with tons of great memories and we hope to be back soon!
