We made our reservation too late so were offered a seat on the patio. Even on a cold rainy night it was warm enough. The service was excellent, as was the food. Save your pennies!

Soup was delicious - Carrot, Ginger and Coconut - simple and the right portion. But the true winner was the lamb - absolutely cooked to perfection and the accompanying veg were perfect - calm ambiance with a warm atmosphere and diligent staff -

Been here twice now. Never disappointed. Meals are always 5 star with service to match. Whatever is on the menu is always fantasic. From duck to lamb and salmon. Very intimate atmosphere. Love this place.

Although this restaurant has a decent rating on trip advisor, my sister and I were somewhat disappointed. To begin with we were choosing from a restricted menu as the restaurant had been busy and were running out of food to cook with. The lamb was sold out so I think we had 4 entrees to choose from. What we chose... More

Truly a great restaurant in a smaller town. Located of off the main street, well worth finding. The Salmon and Rack of Lamb were both outstanding, some of the best food eaten. When the kitchen found out about our anniversary they decorated a nice dessert dish. Everything was top draw.

We hadn't been here for a while and it has changed ownership since the last time we went there. We decided to go and were able to get a reservation on short notice. They have added a patio since we were last there. Unfortunately all the tables outside were reserved. We initially had a table near the kitchen but they... More

We went to The Trough in Canmore while visiting Banff ...one word---Heaven! The service was spectacular and the food was even better, from the appetizers to the desserts! 5 of us all had different entrees and we all thought they were delicious. We will return to The Trough when we find our way to that neck of the woods

This restaurant was recommended by the Ambleside B&B, and my wife and I could not have been more pleased. Both of our meals were terrific, and the service was impressive. The restaurant was small so service is personal, but reservations are necessary.

A great place to eat for a special occasion! Each plate is a masterpiece of presentation and taste. They have a great assortment of wines. Its just a couple streets from downtown but still easily walkable from the Canmore Crossing condos.
