Quiet hidden gem in the mountains

Good family owned business that doesn't get the attention it deserves, very friendly but not the quickest meal. Selection was not the best but everything on the menu is good.

Our family had a nice meal at the Market Bistro. The pizza and pasta were very good. The wine list is very long and diverse. We had great service and had a nice table outside. Would highly recommend it. It seemed there were mostly locals there which is a good sign to me.

Happy to hear you enjoyed the pasta and pizza and experienced "Canmore" of the locals:) Our wine list includes all the wines available at our liquor store, next door. Therefore, extensive wine list! Our mark up is only $15 more then the price at the liquor store. It makes our wine list the most affordable in Canmore! Looking forward to... More

Fantastic food, calm area. I think this is relatively a new restaurant in Canmore. We had our Sunday breakfast there and it was just amazing. Combination of the food, service, patio sitting, the whole thing. Tried their oven baked bagel with egg, pesto and prosciutto and it was very delicious. I would definitely like to try their lunch or dinner... More

We had a great experience at The Market Bistro. We started off with a very reasonably priced bottle of Valpolicella Ripasso and then had a daily special of Thai marinated pork tacos. The atmosphere was that of a comfortable neighborhood bistro. It was a perfect evening.

We discovered the Market Bistro on a walk through Stewart Creek a few months ago and now make it a regular stop for lunch when we are in Canmore. The food is great, good service and a perfect spot to sit for a couple hours. We tie our dogs up outside with a bowl of water and they have a... More

This was a Lovely place to eat. Genuinely NICE people work there. Both our meals were delicious. Very nice indoor and outdoor setting. As the weather is getting nicer, outdoor patio would be a wonderful place to spend an afternoon or evening. Would definitely visit there again.

The menu is simple and the food is delicious and fresh. I ordered al prosciutto pizza and it was very good. Service was excellent. Chef came to have a chat with us. Prices are good for the mountain resort town. Thoroughly recommended.

We went to this establishment as part of the Canmore Uncorked. We had a 3 course meal at a incredible price, the service was very good and the food even better. We will be back to this restaurant for sure.

I'm a semi-regular. I love dropping by the Market Bistro for lunch, coffee and treats, or for a pleasurable evening out with supper and live entertainment. The food is reliably good and usually *great*, service is always friendly, and I really enjoy the casual, homey atmosphere, paintings on the walls, and the blend of patrons (from young & old to...

Okay, it's not Michelin 2 Star, but it's such a great little bistro it's worth venturing to the south end of Canmore to check it out instead of just the downtown restaurants. Tapas are always a solid bet, as are the soups, flatbread pizzas and specials. A pretty short wine list but there's a great wine store just next door.... More
