“Best of Banff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had a wonderful evening overlooking the village of Banff, thanks to this restaurant. the service was terrific, the drinks were good as well. Then caesar salads, very good, some had soup they loved. The dinners were perfectly cooked with great presentation and vegetables to die for. elk steaks, fish and chicken was shared by us all and we were full. But we managed to have room for dessert which were home baked. Each night is different. Make reservations for this huge restaurant because it is busy and worth it.

“Typical tourist "high end" spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Despite a lot of empty tables, we were shuttled to the bar. The waiter only had one other couple to attend to, but still hardly paid any attention to us. I had the mussels and a salad, which were ok, but definitely not worth the price. My friend ordered the seafood platter- it was VERY expensive and far too much food for one person, which the waiter should have warned us about, but didn't. I wouldn't go back.

“Beware”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Nice food, bit pricey. They take your card away and we had charges put on that we hadn't signed for. Although these were refunded when we noticed, a couple of days later after leaving Banff, I would advise caution!

“Nice Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Decided to have lunch at Maple Leaf after bike riding the Legacy Trail. Ordered the East Coast Bison Donair. It was different. It had a sweet taste to it yet appealing. Also had the soup of the day. Enjoyed Both and would return to try other dishes. The atmosphere was good, not too loud .
