“By Far The Best Dining Experience In Canmore, Bandff & Calgary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2009

Even if you go TRY to find something wrong with this experience, you won't.
And it truely is an experience.
Small, (around 10-15 tables) in a un-pretentious setting that can't be beat. You can sit outside, although i never have. You can get bottles of wine for $35 or $2500, and anythign in between.
If you have to try 1 restaurant in AB, try this one. Absolutely will not disappoint - you cannot find a bad review of this restaurant anywhere. Period.

“wow don't miss this gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2009

This restaurant is the best I've been to in a very long time. The service is impecable and the food is beyond belief. With a keen eye for artisic flare, and tastes that dazzle such as the artichioke, pea and mint soup, and marinated duck and pheasant flatbread, you will find an array of dishes that so wonderfully complimant the next.
The srevice was just as much as a delight, and I really appreciated special touches such as the lime and cucumber sorbet offered as a pallette cleanser.

Do not miss this restaurant located on the walk of champions in the picturesque Camore, Alberta!

“The meal that all others are measured against”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2009

I have been here 3 times in the past year. It is by far the best food that I have had in the Calgary area. Honestly, I didn't know that food could taste so good. The service is extremely polite, the atmosphere is laid back and the decor is lovely. This is a place where everyone should eat at least once.

“Awesome Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2009

We ate ere for our anniversary dinner and had a wonderful experience. The staff here do an amazing job of taking care of their guests. From the time you arrive, you're treated to first class service. Menu and wine list are amazing - our waiter did a great job recommending exactly the type of wine we were looking for. Had the blackfish and the stuffed pablano pepper. Great entrees!!
Make sure you make reservations as seating is very limited. If you are looking for a true dining EXPERIENCE - this is your destination.
