Our English waiter was outstanding.... More

As a large group we had dinner here while in town skiing. When we arrived I highlighted to the waiter that 3 families were dining with 6 children under 10. He noted that he would need the table by 9 for another group. This was odd as our reservation was at 630 & that seemed like a lot of time.... More

My wife and I went to Saltlik in Banff for an evening of good food and atmosphere. Saltily did not disappoint. Warm interior, with downstairs more bar like and upstairs the dining area. We were upstairs. Service was excellent and the food even better. We both had steak, which is their speciality. It was superb. All in all and great... More

Certainly, we recognize that our price point may not be suitable for budget conscious consumers but it is gratifying to know that sophisticated travelers do indeed find value in a night out at...

We visited this restaurant for the first time two years ago, we liked it so much we returned last month. The atmosphere and service are great. All the food is amazing but the steaks are delicious. Will be returning for sure! We also went on one occasion to have lunch at the bar of the Saltlik, they serve great burgers!
