a girlfriend and i did a last minute overnight spa trip to banff in december. she and i are both foodies so when i found this place online and read the menu i knew this was our dinner plan.
and, well, it did not disappoint. everything was bang on... the service, the ambiance, the wine, the food. we shared the escargot, ravioli and flatbread (... we were pretty hungry ; )). i was suprised at how much i enjoyed the escargot. buttery and soft and not too chewy - just delicious. as a main i had the bison short ribs that melted in my mouth the meat was cooked to perfection. unfortunately we were just too full so we had to skip dessert... next time for sure.
it's a busy place, reserve ahead if you can. its well worth it. they have a well deserved reputation in the town. i look forward to going back which i think, as a foodie, is the ultimate compliment you can give any restaurant!
