LOVED our experience by the roaring fire for dinner after a day of skiing. Here past the busy season, the dining room was quiet but filled steadily as we ate. Mark greeted us, started the fire and was attentive and engaging the entire evening. Our salads and entrees were delicious and creative - KUDOS to the chefs for their lovingly... More

You're worth it. Have a beautiful special occasion, and be stimulated and satiated. Look to the base of Mt. Norquay if you are in the Banff area. The Juniper is a rare modern canadian find. Classy without being pretentious. Creative delicious dishes. Featuring the novilty of superfoods and that satisfy. Try something exotic or find the flavor you're craving. Enjoy... More

Tried the Juniper Bistro in October and loved every bite. Great food, great value, awesome view! Went back in December and was once again very impressed. The wine list needs a little help but an excellent selection of beers. In a town that offers a lot of average tourist chow - the Juniper delivers the real goods. The chef is... More

The Juniper Bistro, located in the cute and comfy Juniper Hotel, is a MUST if you like to gaze at the dramatic mountains and glorious Bow Valley while you munch or your beet salad or Longhorn steak. The wall-to-wall windows provide the setting, and Mt. Rundle is the star of the show. We ate dinner and breakfast here. Don't miss... More

This was truly one of the best breakfast dining experiences I've had in years! My husband and I were equally impressed with our meals; everything is homemade and gourmet. The bacon is made in house and the potatoes were seriously the best EVER!! We even ordered desert for breakfast because the food was just soooo delicious!! We will definitely be... More

I've eaten here several times. Each time the food does not disappoint, whether I'm there with my kids or with friends. If you need special requests ... they will accommodate. Sometimes the service can be on the slow side, so if you need to be done quicker just let them know. They will speed it up for you. The views... More
