Walking around Banff trying to decide where to dine. I have a philosophy that why would I eat at a establishment that is near where I live.... Enjoying the evening I decided to go one block west off Main Street Banff. This savouring aroma caught my attention so I had to try it. First off great staff, very attentive and... More

I wanted to try the bison steak whist in Banff and Saltlik was recommended. The staff were great, knew what they were taking about and allowed us to have restaurant food in the bar. The bison was good. Great taste to it. The IPA was also really nice. If you like proper beer, not lager, then you should try the... More

We had a poor experience at this place. We went here after reading about it online. I ordered the ribeye steak and te Mac and cheese. The steak came cooked wrong and the waiter agrees, a nice apology and the steak was taken back. It came back and was still poor. The Mac and cheese was average for the crazy... More

Wanted a lighter meal after non-stop eating on holiday and got exactly that at Saltlik. Had lovely rotisserie chicken and beautifully fresh salad. Great service too. Really recommend this place, nice and buzzy atmosphere without being too noisy or busy.

Had an excellent meal here. The drink menu is vast and the food sections are excellent. Service was a bit slow, which was a bummer. My wine glass set empty for extended periods of time. Had service been better this would have been a five star experience.

Ate in both lounge and restaurant. Atmososphere and service is great in both. Food equally good. Double cut pork chop; chicken and ribs; and thai curry reflect a diverse menu and all were very good. Good choice of beer and wine (if the wine is on the expensive side)

The experience Leroy created tonight was nothing short of perfect from moment we were greeted until we left. The attention to detail was impeccable and suggesting the pairings to accompany our meals was well presented and communicated. Service was professional, sincere and inviting. The food was a step above other restaurants and it was well priced for the atmosphere and... More

We came late on a Thursday night, the place was not very busy. The service was excellent and the calamari was fantastic.

Once we got it the food was good, but! There was only 5 of us there for Sunday brunch, the place was close to empty, so I can see absolutely no reason why one plate arrived, then 2 together, then one more and eventually the last one. No one ordered anything complex so after 15 minutes of food getting cold... More
