“A taste of creole in the snow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Something a bit different in Banff. My son and I had dinner here during our holiday and enjoyed it very much.
The kiwi waitress was very helpful and attentive and the food was yummy. Definitely recommend the frogs legs for something different.

“Great breakfast choices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

WOW -- if you haven't tried this place for breakfast when you're in Banff, you're really missing something. It's on a side street just off Banff Avenue in the heart of downtown. The ambiance is New Orleans style. The choices for breakfast are great and my banana caramel French toast was perfectly divine! Prices are quite reasonable, too.

“Great service, good food but small portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We always go to the same places when we go to Banff and wanted to try something different. We loved the decor and atmosphere and the service was great. Very helpful and friendly staff. We tried the alligator bites and they were very good. The main dish was good, but we did find the portions a little small. It was ok for my but my fiancé could have used a bit more food. Overall we were happy with the experience.

“Nice and spicy for a change!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Tooloulou's is a small cajun restaurant just off Banff Avenue. There was a warm welcome and extensive menu, a relief to find no burger & chips or the canadian dish of poutine (chips, cheese & gravy!) on the menu, but great to have something spicy. I recommend the popcorn shrimp. Also had blackened mahi mahi fish which was lovely but could have been spicier for my palette.
Friendly efficient service.
Definitely worth a visit, open all day.

“Nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

We had a very pleasant evening starting with alligator bites, followed by steak. It was a good steak. It could have done with a bit longer cooking. Overall a lovely evening and meal. The staff are so friendly.
