“Best Brunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Have only eaten here for Brunch. Done that a few times as it is so good! Go there hungry, do not have breakfast! Amazing selection of food, you can go up as many times as you like. They will make you a fresh omlette, and are always re-stocking the impressive selection of food. We had two vegetarians in our party, and they had no trouble finding a good choice.
Whenever we have visitors coming over from the UK, we like to take them here to create that WOW factor!

“Iconic restaurant in the Banff Springs Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

You can sit at your table, close your eyes, and imagine the early days of this place. Great food, great service and great company make for a wonderful, relaxing evening. It is a total experience for the senses, one to be savoured over time and never rushed.
