Went for breakfast which I think is new for them. Waited to be acknowledged for about 10 min. The only reason we stayed is because it was Sunday and there were lines everywhere. Once sat, waited 5 min. For waitress, brought my mother in laws tea immediately, our coffee? No. Ordered breakfast,still no coffee, asked another waitress, still no coffee,... More

The Information Center recommended this place, but this is not the place for Lunch, since it does not appear the main chef works during this time slot. We order the soup of the day and french union soup. Both arrived warm at best, it was not a good start. The main course was also cool and tasteless. Only thing that... More

If you want a change from the standard North American mix of burgers, ribs, pizza etc. this is the place to go. Reasonably priced French bistro food in pleasant surroundings with a suitable wine selection by the glass or bottle - it has a touch of class and is extremely pleasant. And if you are missing garlic done properly have... More

Heard it was good, the elk chasseur was excellent, my friend ordered the beef pie and sent it back as the food under the pastry was cold, no apology, no deduction when bill came.

Our family recently dined at the restaurant during a ski trip to Banff. The food was very good and we enjoyed our experience. We were personally greeted by who I assumed to be the owner and the service from others in the restaurant was equally as personable and attentive. The cheese plate was particularly notable and enjoyable.

I took my hunny here for Valentines Day and I assure you it was not a mistake. I was served with the best customer service that I have ever received and the food was absolutely to die for. I will definitely be going back,

We really enjoyed our meal at Bistro Cafe de Paris. The Duck Confit was delicious…even more so than the one I had in Burgundy last year…. The service was excellent, the ambience relaxing and the setting - wonderful! We will surely return since the quality of the food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable! Merci beaucoup!

Six of us enjoyed a HUGE meal here last Saturday. This was the first time any of us had eaten at the Bistro. I enjoyed every aspect of our evening....the staff, the ambiance, the yummy FOOD! There was an abundance of choice on the menu (and to my mother-in laws delight many gf options). Between the six of us we... More

We had a great meal on Sunday and enjoyed it so much that we decided to go back the next night. It was an equally excellent experience aided in no small part by the great service by Ellie, our server. We will certainly be back!

We were looking for a relaxing, quiet meal in Banff and we found it at the Bistro. A more casual sister to the formal Beaujolais, the Bistro faithfully recreates the atmosphere of a quiet Paris bistro. Service was great without being over-bearing. The room was nicely decorated and the linens and cutlery were first-rate. But the food was the star,... More
