Perfect place for a special night out

We really enjoyed our supper here. The wait staff was friendly and helpful, and the chef was very creative. I eat vegan, and they were more than willing to create something special for me. The result was one of the best meals out I have had. They have a beyond impressive wine list, better classed... read more

The Maple Leaf offers a pleasant dining room centrally located in Banff. The service was friendly and the menu wide ranging. We had travelled all day and only wanted a light meal so shared a couple of appetisers. We were a little disappointed that the chef wasn't flexible enough to allow us to order the pasta entree in an appetiser... More

My friends and I decided to come here for a "fancy" breakfast, and were slightly disappointed. As servers in the industry we could tell that the place was very busy so the service was mediocre, which is to be expected. However I ordered the Benny, poached medium. Eggs came out super runny and cold. The flavour was delicious, just would... More

Perfect. Thanks Clare for the great experience. Had the elk meatballs and salmon entrée. Maple Walnut ice cream, locally made as also great.

a group of us went here for the first time for lunch. It was very good. I ended up getting a kale salad and I have never had a salad that was so good! other people in our group got burgers and soups and they all highly enjoyed them. The time to get it was a little on the long... More

Nice decor. Great service. Shockingly good food. That's it really. Try the charcuterie plate. Stunning. But everything we ordered was top shelf. Slow clap to the chef.

AMAZING food, AMAZING décor and AMAZING service. We got there at 9:30 pm not knowing they closed at 10. They did not rush us at all, our waitress was extremely friendly and helpful. We both got steak, and I have to say, it was the BEST steak I have ever had. It was juicy and delicious! Oh and not to... More

We ate brunch here. The staff were efficient and friendly. The food was great and priced well. What I really loved was the decor and the artifacts adorning the restaurant. The beautiful timber finish is to behold. This building has true character! Worth going to.

I don't mind paying for great meals and the Maple Leaf was recommended highly. I had the scallops and the Bison fillet. Both recommended by the bartender. The scallops were average. Nothing special. The flavored were good but not memorable. The Bison tenderloin was cooked perfectly and melted in my mouth. The atmosphere is Canadian and it's right in the... More

Set in the centre of town this café has a small eating area and a large bar downstairs with more seating upstairs. Great range on the menu. The pizza was delicious but there is a bit of a wait (20 mins) for it to arrive. Service was good and staff friendly. I would recommend this as a place to eat... More
