This is the place to go if you are looking to get full without breaking the budget. A very family friendly restaurant. We had a great experience, the drinks were very good and very affordable. Food was average quality, but not expensive for Banff. I would definitely return with the family when we return to Banff.

The Old Spaghetti Factory always delivers. Good food for a good price, and lots of it! Being located in Banff is just icing on the cake. Great service too!

The cost is good the food is average. Good place to go with kids. The service was adequate. This has great views of the town. If you're looking to grab a quick casual meal at not a bad price then this is a reasonable place. The food just doesn't really have a wow factor to me.

The service was great once seated and can't be faulted, value for money good, beer good, unfortunately the chefs aren't as good. However we are glad to have visited but certainly wouldn't... More

We visited this location twice in July. The first time I had a vegetable lasagna and it was amazing! The second time I had the Chicken Parm which was unfortunately burned in parts :( The manager did correct this mistake. We had attentive servers both times. We were given lots of food - great prices too, considering Banff is quite... More

The restaurant was attractively decorated, the staff attentive & the food really good. The prices were surprisingly reasonable, especially for a tourist mecca like Banff.
