We dined at The Market Bistro because it was recommended to us as good food away from the crowds. This was one of the best meals of our week in Canmore! Excellent food, reasonably priced, and worth the drive!

The bistro is located in the Three Sisters area near Canmore. It is quaint and well hidden so unless you know of it you are unlikely to stumble upon it. We sat out on the patio - It was a perfect lunch stop as we made our way back to Calgary. Well worth the effort to find.

We have lived nearby for years and hear nothing but great things about The Market Bistro. The food is really good however the service is terrible. We have given it three visits and each time leave disappointed.

Lunchtime was quiet, maybe due to the recent rain, for certain it wasn’t quiet due to any lack of quality with the food and service. Well worth ordering the Market Wrap

Enjoyed a fabulous meal on the patio on a beautiful evening. Casual laid-back ambiance. Great food, service and ambiance. Nice and quiet, relaxing. Kid's menu available. Highly recommended!

Our family of 16 wined & dined here on Canada Day for dinner. The patio dining was perfect, our service staff excellent, and the food was wonderful. Our family ordered a bit of everything but my dish, the Salmon Filet Salad was seasoned and filling. My teen son ate the Cassoulet, a 1st for him. However, the stand-out, & we... More

This quaint little restaurant tucked away in a neighborhood just outside Canmore on Three Sisters Parkway was a very special surprise. The food was excellent, as was the service, and the atmosphere was simply wonderful. I would recommend this bistro to anyone visiting the Canmore area. It stacks up to any of the restaurants in Banff. Highly recommended. Our compliments... More

This little bistro is tucked away from Canmore's main centre but is well worth a diversion - especially if the town is very busy. Handy too, as directly alongside you can buy nice wine! We went for an early lunch here and what quality ! We were served by Emily who was exemplary, knew a lot about coffee and the... More

My wife and I are real foodies. While on vacation in Canmore, we went here for lunch. It was so good we returned for dinner that evening. The next day was our anniversary, and there were two restaurants in Canmore I had checked out as possibilities. But when the time came, we decided to go for the sure thing and... More
