Very good meal with an interesting menu

We visited for a special occasion during the Canmore Uncorked event. The food and wine were excellent and the menu was a bargain as it was a set menu for the food festival. I had the ribs which were sweet and very tender.

we were looking to try some of the local restuarnatns during the Canmore Uncorked food festival and noticed that Trough was on the list. We thought it was time to go back. And we are so glad we did. Though the menu was restricted for the festival what was available was cooked perfectly and presented beautifully. We started with a... More

A truly wonderful meal and presentation. The entire dining experience was exceptional and we were treated incredibly well just upon entering the restaurant. Even the bathrooms were fantastic.

I had to give this restaurant three out of five stars because even though the food was excellent I do not feel it deserves to be at the top of the list because I believe it specializes in mainly date nights and high-end business meetings. I took my family of two teens, wife and in-laws here hoping for the perfect... More

This restaurant is well worth the drive. We have dined there several times and are never disappointed. If a foodie experience is your thing, put The Trough on your list. If you want big McPortions and trendy ambience, try another place. Favourite appetizers: Bruschetta, Mussels Favourite entrées: Catch of the day, Jerk ribs Favourite animal: The little pig who greets... More

We ate at The Trough twice on our visit to Canmore. Once a dinner for 2 and then a dinner for 6, both were very pleasing. I loved the Duck so much the first time that I couldn't pass up the opportunity to have it the second time. Others had the Mussels, Rib Eye and Lamb Shank. For starters I... More

After hearing rave reviews we decided to try this restaurant. Very rustic, intimate atmosphere. We started with the Cesar salad. Not sure you can count that as cesar salad. Only 4 dry lettuce leaves with cheese, bacon, potato chips and no dressing. For our meal we ordered the ribs. The meat was very tender but the Jerk sauce was too... More

A beautiful place to linger over dinner, which is good becuase I want to fully taste every delicious bite. Unrushed dinner with excellet service. I enjoy going with group of four who won't mind sharing a bite of their order, because no matter how good mine is, I know whatever they got will be every bit as good!

We were in Canmore on a Sunday night for a birthday and wanted to have a nice meal with good wine in a nice setting to visit. The service was excellent and the decor and atmosphere was charming. The menu was small but covered what we were looking for. We had the bruschetta and Caesar salad to start, and they... More

This little restaurant on the side street in the main area of Canmore is a real gem for someone who loves food. The menu is short and sweet, but the food more than makes up for it. Absolutely amazing. We've been there a few times now, and every time the food has been consistently tasty. I almost always have the... More
