“Nice French food at reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014 NEW

Overall, the food was pretty good and would go back again, but not the most amazing French meal I've had by any means. The bread was nothing special and served with cold hard butter. Our Elk was fabulous and my steak was ok - they over-cooked it a little bit. The service was one of the best during our experience in Banff - very attentive. The restaurant is in need of some serious updating though... looks like the same decor for 20+ years and in need of a make-over.

“Disppointing, confusing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 NEW

French restaurant in the Rockies, Valentines Day - sounds great?

I love French food, so this was one of my surprises... and apparently is a much talked about restaurant in Banff.

Sorry guys, but you missed the mark on every single thing:

No atmosphere, it feels like tables stuck in the middle of no where with no ambience whatsoever - service was average - wine selection was average - but most of all the food was below average.

Trust me I wanted to love it - we were in a fabulous mood and had a wonderful day... but for the price tag and lack of all of the above, sadly, no love even on Valentines Day.

“Pleasing breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

We went to the bistro for breakfast about 8:30 a.m. and had the room pretty much to ourselves. I don't know if we were early or late, but the food was good enough to create a crowd. The wait staff was friendly and astute. Though he served us cold coffee, he realized it before we called him back to the table. We liked the food enough that we made reservations for dinner, but had to cancel for unforeseen reasons.

“Incredible French Toast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Had a late breakfast this am after walking 6 miles in and around Banff, part of the walk was looking for a not so busy place for breakfast! Found the perfect spot here. It was active but not maddening. Service was great and I had the most delectable French Toast ever and I consider myself a French Toast Snob. My wife had a breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, home fries and great multi-grain toast ! We were so impressed going back for dinner in a couple nights.

“Best restaurant experience I've had in years !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Our waiter, Laurent Beclier was outstanding. Suggested great cocktails and wine for the meal, and was a pleasure to talk to through out the night. The Elk Osso Bucco was amazing. We'll be back every time we're in Banff. Formidable !!
