Innovative menu, delicious food

We had a wonderful dinner at Tekarra. The menu is very interesting - there were great options for everyone including our kids. The food quality and presentation was excellent, as was the service. Fine dining in a relaxed setting. Don't miss it.

We were a little concerned by a review stating something about crayons on the tables so we were pleasantly surprised to find a beautiful chalet style restaurant tucked into the woods, yes with some crayons on the tables for the families from the cabins surrounding the restaurant,...

We have travelled every spring for the past 5 years to spend a fantastic weekend at the Tekarra Lodge and to treat our selves to the best meal of the year at the Tekarra Restaurant. Try something new and exotic from the menu, which changes regularly. The Lodge/Rest is a bit out of Jasper, but can be a very nice... More

We were able to walk to this restaurant from the Alpine Village. Good food and fine wine. Delicious steak and the ice cream with an alcohol sauce was to die for.
