This was our third OSF on our trip and the décor and food quality did not disappoint. The best spaghetti anywhere. The server was also very good

This place is great for a good quality value meal in Banff. They do an 'all included' deal where you pay for the main meal but get a starter (soup or salad - upgrades available) and also ice cream and tea/coffee at the end so its much better value than some places. The food is of a good standard, we... More

For the price of this restaurant, one would think the food would be a lot better. The Mrs's and I were hungry and figured this would be very good. It was okay but didn't blow my hair back. On a side note, the bathrooms are located in the mall, so you need to leave the restaurant when nature calls.

We had had a party of 4 adults and 2 children they accommodated us with a nice table and room for the pushchair. We we went in for lunch and the menu was very comprehensive, the kids menu was good too. One of our youngsters is very fussy and the waiter was very accommodating. Terrific selections of beers and wines.... More

Good choice of food, pretty much anything you want is on the menu. Great prices for food and for drinks too. What let our visit down a bit was the service as they were really busy and our waitress spent too much time talking to other tables and twice forgot our drinks. Another waiter took over our table and the... More

They accommodated our group of 13 with no issues. Lots of options for the little ones while still affording a broad selection for adults. We had a bit of a wait, but they comped us accordingly. Budget and family friendly!

Our charming server, Alex, attended to our party of seven with grace and efficiency. All of our meals were delicious, portions generous and price very reasonable. We were lucky to get in without a lineup on this briskly cold winter day. Predictably satisfying meal with the sun streaming in, playing upon stained glass. No doubt, we will return.

Went out for birthday dinner here and our server was very accommodating. The food was good and the staff even threw in a happy birthday serenade and complementary browny! All in all a very nice dinner.

We stopped in after skiing at Norquay for Supper. We visited just before Christmas, 4 adults & 3 kids on a Sunday about 4:30, they accepted a last minute reservation. Our server was charming, friendly and efficient. The food as always was great. The wonderful thing about this restaurant is that you get bread, soup or salad, ice cream &... More

Poor service (slow to take orders, bring orders and clear tables) Food poor (luke warm) although the salad to start was nice but basic (not dressed and consisted of spinach and almonds) Overall we were unimpressed, wouldn't go back.
