After working around the house all day we decided to treat ourselves to a casual dinner out. We Googled casual dining in Calgary and found this restaurant. We were not disappointed, it was a real treat and priced very fairly.
My wife had Beef Bourguignon and I had the special of the day, salmon with a saffron sauce.
We both enjoyed our meals and the serving sizes were outstanding. The sauce on my salmon was one of the best I have tasted and the piece of fish was larger than what I serve when we cook salmon at home, Same for the Beef Bourguignon,it came in a large bowl with plenty of veggies. I found the beef to be a little smoky for my taste but my wife loved it.
For dessert we shared what looked like a chocolate covered pretzel but in reality seemed to be some kind of chocolate cookie covered in chocolate. No other word to describe it but delicious.
We will go back, no doubt.
However there were a few minor irritations.
1. the server really rushed us to order our food. We were there at 17:30 and the place was not busy.
2. my diet coke was delivered in the bottle and I prefer when it is a fountain service and you can get refills. The price was the same as in restaurants that do have fountain service.
3. I never did see the bill. You go to the cash register to pay and she told us the amount and that was that!
By the way the total bill for 1 glass of wine, 2 meals, an expensive coke and 1 dessert was only $43.00; a great bargain, despicably since the food was excellent.
