I spent a couple of weeks in Banff about 18 years ago and stumbled upon Melissa's on our first evening. It was such a fantastic experience we had dinner here a further 6 times during our stay. Returning to Banff I was really pleased to see that the place was still going strong and eagerly made it here for dinner... More

Our food was good and the service was ok. I needed to ask for water. I liked that it had "typical" food as many restauants in Banff are a little over the top.

You get so much food here and the staff are a delight. I have to recommend the ribeye. You get salad and bread to start (included with your main) and sauce too. Awesome. Ate here twice in a week!

I've always eaten at this restaurant for breakfast, it seems like THE breakfast spot in Banff. Lately I've been wondering if there isn't a better choice. First of all, the prices are very reasonable, the service is great, and the food is delicious. However, there is always a wait, and as much as they'll try to accommodate you if you're... More

We took advantage of the free corkage on Thursdays which gave me an opportunity to try some wines which had been intriguing me. Staff were so helpful and friendly and changing the time of my reservation was not an issue. We were given a warm welcome and really good quality wine glasses which was nice. Everybody enjoyed their dinner and... More

Four of us ate a very satisfying breakfast here. Portions were huge and well presented and this place can be recommended for satisfying that bacon and pancake craving! Service couldn't have been more efficient or friendly and the cost was very reasonable.

stopped in for breakfast on our way to the airport. we had a party of 8. service was perfect, all by a waiter who took all of our orders without writing it down. always amazed at how some folks can do that. breakfast was excellent.
