Best in Banff

Start with the Southern Alberta Elk Meatballs, then definitely have the Grass Fed Bison Stroganoff as a main. Its is SO good. End your perfect meal with the lava cake and a glass of Ice Wine.

We waited to try this very well reviewed eatery. My expectations were set a little higher than usual as they have such good reviews. We ordered the calamari, duck wings to start. My wife had the eggplant wrap- delicious. I had a steak lunch. Not only did our orders take slightly longer to come out my steak was not cooked... More

The atmosphere and food at this restaurant are awesome. You can get any variety of meat - elk, duck, beef, chicken, seafood - all beautifully presented. I would recommend the charcuterie plate to start - it was delicious! Many great wines to choose from to accompany your meal.... and the desserts... mmmm!

A stunning restaurant in a stunning setting. The food was amazing and it was great to have a choice of Canadian dishes. The restaurant is a definite place to visit and the staff are amazing especially with young children.

We came to this restaurant as a couple on the Feb long weekend, we tried to get reservations but they were full, we went there on Fri around 8pm and got a table right away.

if you are looking for a meal which has quality produce at a reasonable price, then this is the place to go. It is a little more expensive than the other popular restaurants, but worth the money that will not break the bank. The salmon was excellent.

Lovely ambiance. I enjoyed the upstairs bar which is a little hectic with the tables around, but a good atmosphere. Highly suggest the sangria, the elk meatballs appetizer, cheese plates and don’t forget dessert – maple ice cream which was the best on my Canadian trip.

Excellent service... Great main menu... Ridiculously tender fillet steak! Delicious! One tiny comment rather than criticism... the Kids Menu could do with some expert help from some little people who like nice food. Other than that, it really was awesome!
