My husband and I made a reservation here in Feb 2014 on a sunday night. When we arrived, we were told that the reservation was made for a different time. Fortunately for us there was one table left. After some interesting features our table had (extreme seclusion, a rope with a flag to notify the waiter we needed something and... More

Took the kids to this for something different. Tried buffalo, elk, venison etc and it was lovely. The waitress was very good at informing us of what would be good etc for the kids. Good experience

We walked into a nearly empty restaurant, was told all tables were full due to reservations, which was fine, they seated us outside. After the inside host was condescending and the outside waiter was just rude we decided to just leave. Why pay that much for disrespectful service. We went to Torcino (not sure how you spell it) down the... More

We went on a little trip through the rockies beginning of the month and there were a couple restaurants better than the rest. This was a really nice treat to find such a variety of wild meat available, and you cook yourself on a hot rock to make an overall pretty neat experience. Right in the heart of Banff it's... More

This a great place to go for dinner! First it used to be an old swingers club so all the tables have a phone by them and you can ring up anyone else you like and say hello! Even from the bathroom! The cheese fondue is very good, and the exotic hot rocks was very interesting as well.

We ate here one night earlier this month and it was great!! The staff were amazing, and the food was really good! We took various types of meat and cooked it ourselves, the veggies that we boiled ourselves and the fondue for desert! There are also phones (it used to be a restaurant for "alternative lifestyles") at each table, and... More

Lunch on the patio. Husband had to try the angus burger - Canadian style. Second disappointment. Canada seems a little lite on spices for us. Just saying... I was having an off day with my digestive system so opted for soup and salad...ordinary but passable. Didn't go inside...looked dark and closed in. No one suggested the fondue as their specialty....
