Nice Food, Good atmosphere

We visited the Maple Leaf as a family of 2 adults and 2 children for our last meal in Banff. Previous trip advisor reviews brought us here..... We had booked an early table to avoid kiddie tantrums, and were seated without problem. I don't think there would have been any need to book at that time... read more

Booked here based on Trip Advisor reviews, and so glad we did; we had one of the best meals we've ever had anywhere. Starters of beef carpaccio and seared scallops with home smoked pork belly were sublime. The beef was so thinly sliced it melted in the mouth, better than any we've had in Italy. The scallops were sweet and... More

Restaurant is on the 1st floor over the "Bear Street Tavern" and there is a lift for the less mobile. The Food was great , starting with the Game Platter which the four of us shared, the mains that we had were Duck, Salmon and Bison and all were cooked perfectly and were very tasty. Deserts were the usual suspects... More

We had a nice meal here and the food was good. Beware that the servers will not tell you how much the specials cost. My husband ordered the Elk and was surprised to find out it was $70 when we received the check. Other menu items were in the $25-$40 range, so we weren't expecting this. You may want to... More

Went here for evening meal and pleased we did. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They knew the wines and each dish so could advise and suggest appropriately. The food was wonderfully cooked and I would highly recommend the scallops with cured pork belly and the salmon and prawn dishes. This is fine food but relaxed and friendly and well worth... More

We returned to Banff last week and ate again at the Maple Leaf. This is a great place to eat and they cater for casual diners and anything up to a special celebration. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The food is delicious and the deserts are to die for. I look forward to returning here on our next visit... More

This great restaurant has cooks that know what they are doing! Anything we've tried is superb. My boyfriend tried to taught me out of the bison tenderloin saying that other meats will be better due to the low fat content in the meat. I proceeded to order it and was wowed by the tenderness and absolutely flavourful meat. My whole... More

Stopped in for a quick drink in the bar. The bartender was knowledgeable and friendly. I heard good things from the locals about the restaurant but didn't have time to partake in a meal.

We ordered steak and duck breast with risotto. The food was delicious and of high quality. Service was prompt and friendly. The prices are on the high side but worth it.
