Excellent Calamari

The Calamari is out of this world good! The mac and cheese side was also excellent along with the lobster garlic mashed potatoes.

Food was so good, Rib on the Bone was done to perfection and my friend is still raving about their Salmon. Service was good, beer was cold and the atmosphere was spot on. It's a pity licking the plate is not kosher. Thanks for a great evening.

Saltlik is a great restaurant with a good atmosphere. The food was delicious not the cheapest, but not expensive for quality food the centre of Banff. Cocktails were also very good value.

Myself and 3 friends went out for dinner and we chose SaltLik as it appears to be one of the nicer restaurants in Banff. I had been once before 4 years ago, and I don't think it has changed. We had the duck tacos for an appetizer and they were fairly good. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars... More

Saltlik is consistently good - with attentive and friendly staff, great ambiance, and excellent food. Duck tacos delicious! Steaks perfect! And they had a special on for wine $9 for large glass wonderful pairing with our steaks Also - go for the chocolate fondant pudding; even if you're not a sweet tooth it will blow you away!

We were in your restaurant b/w 4-530 pm yesterday and had the most amazing waiter named Ben. He was very efficient and had great suggestions. The meal was fantastic.

Stumbled across this place after being told there was a wait at the other two restaurants we tried. We were seated quickly. I tried the 17oz ribeye steak with caesar salad and french fries. The steak was delicious, the salad fresh, and the fries perfectly cooked. The service was ok. I don't know if it they were short staffed or... More
