“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

The Terrace is an absolute favourite of mine in Banff. I am lucky enough to frequent every few weeks or so and enjoyed a decadent Christmas dinner in there this year as well. In my opinion they have the best cocktails in town; inventive, imaginative, use fresh ingredients and delicious! One my favourite little treats is they make their own flavoured butters! In my last visit I started with the buckwheat crepe with seared scallops (which were cooked perfectly) served with leeks in a cream sauce followed by tableside beef tartar and finished with a perfectly portioned cheese platter......not to mention the spectacular wine and exceptional service. I wish more people knew about this restaurant but as it's located in a hotel it is usually overlooked. If you ever get a chance to try it out do so...you won't be disappointed.

“Everything just perfect.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

Probably the best place for foodies in Banff. Everything from food, to room, to service was just great. Make sure to try their signature cocktails and their great version of Caesar cocktail.

“Terrace Dining Room and Lounge surpassed my expectations.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

I have lived in Banff for many years and we were all pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service in the Terrace Dining Room. We don't often think of going because the restaurant is hidden in the back of the hotel. We were all impressed - and we will definitely go again.
