Fun restaurant!

Why mentioning "gun" for a restaurant? Because this place is unique: each table has telephone, you even have one in the bathroom!!! Back in time it was used to call other person at other table to do a kind of dating :) The food was good as well!

The title of my review is in honor of our server, you guessed it, Jimmy. We were a table of 10, 9 of us being women, and he did not miss a beat. From the moment we were all seated until we all walked out the door, he was an absolute pleasure. The lone guy at our table received a... More

The speciality of this place is what they call fondou, but we knew as hot rock cooking. You choose your meat (some very different options, snake, frogs legs as well as bison and elk) and then cook it yourself. this led to a raucous evening trying different food amongst our group of seven. Also each table has a phone so... More

Three of us here on a weeknight and the place was reasonably full. Great service, loved the table side phones! We got a call within minutes of sitting down...so much fun! We all had the complete fondue dinners...started with soups or salad, both were delightful. Then traditional cheese fondue with bread and we almost licked the pot it was so... More

A great place to spend a couple hours. The lobster and beef are great. Cheese fondu and chocolate fondu are also very good. Consider wearing throw away clothing as you smell pretty bad once you leave

This was our last night in Banff and this was the restaurant to finish our holiday of 11 days and say goodbye to our daughter living here. The ambience was relaxed and non hurried. The menu provided four courses taken at our leisure and allowed us to enjoy a relaxing evening while cooking our meal on hot rocks or in... More

We had a reservation and we were seated very quickly and our server was very prompt and professional. My girlfriend started with the salad which she claimed was ok. I had the soup of the day, the soup came luke warm at best and bordered too cold to eat. Despite the soup being cold it was really tasty. We opted... More
