You have posted in Canmore forum, were you looking for restaurants there or in Banff?

Some suggestions of places to dine in Banff would be the Banff Springs Hotel, they have a nice Italian Restuarant or you could have a romantic fondue at the Waldhaus. There is also the Maple Leaf Grill and the Three Ravens or the Juniper Bistro and Lounge.

For something else to add to the day or evening you could take a horse drawn carriage ride, take a trip up the Sulphur Mountain Gondola or depending on the weather and what time of June you are arriving you could rent a canoe to take on the Bow River.

In Canmore some nice restaurants are Murrietas, or perhaps the Sage Bistro or Crazy Weed. There is a nice restaurant at the Silvertip Resort.

Just to throw out another option, there is the Wallister Stube at the Chateau Lake Louise or the Post Hotel has a very fine dining restaurant. Then you could take a romantic canoe ride on Lake Louise. Lake Louise is approx. 45 minutes drive west of Banff.

Enjoy your anniversary, it will be special no matter what you do in the beautiful Rocky Mountains.

For a really fancy night out, I'm a big fan of the Eden Restaurant in the Rimrock Resort. The views are amazing, as is the food & service. It's a really special experience.

And Happy Anniversary!

Yes, drive to Storm Mountain Lodge and get a cabin for the night and have a romantic evening meal. It's one of the most romantic places on earth!


Google "Image" Storm Mountain Lodge to get a better visual of how magical this place is. Certainly you could drive there for a meal from Banff, but it just means you can't drink. It's about 40 Minutes from

If you want to stay in Banff, my favorite "romantic" dining destination for ambience is Castello at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. I also enjoy a romantic dinner at the Beaujolais in downtown Banff.
