We decided to drive to Canmore on a Friday night after work from calgary just to get away. We checked on trip advisors for ideas of places to go and decided on trough. We really had no expectations going in. It was a really quaint place and we were able to get a spot up at the bar. The staff... More

I have never had better food in Canmore. The Trough Diner is a must go! Best bruschetta ever with gluten free bread.

Great entrée and main. Dessert a little average but price was excellent for quality. Odd out of the way location. Reasonably good selection of wines. Would recommend.

We decided to go here on our last day of vacation and were not disappointed with the quality of the food, setting and service. Although it is a bit pricy, quality makes up for it. We shared the charc and cheese as a starter which came with really good cheese, some pork belly, pate, salami, dried fruits and home made... More

Trough has done it again. Had the Sablefish special this trip and it was spectacular! Thank you to Chef Michael and our waitress Victoria. Already looking forward to my next trip.

Absolutely outstanding! Cozy, comfortable, attentive service without being "omnipresent." I have never had an item on the menu that was not inspired and fantastic. This is the best restaurant in Canmore, period.

The menu is small which is why I like it - they specialize on what people enjoy and prepare the food well. Some of the entrees have been on the menu for a good 10 years. My favourite is the jerk ribs - tasty fall off the bone - just scrumptious. My wife loves the halibut. The place is small... More

My husband and I enjoyed your last night in Canmore at Trough. The mussels, duck and pork were all wonderfully prepared. Very good service.

Amazing place for lunch or evening out. We had a great time on the little cozy patio, My steak salad and pavlova were delicious. Worth every penny. Make a reservation, it gets busy during peak season.

We were in Canmore for the long weekend attending a wedding. A HUGE highlight of this trip was our evening at The Trough Dining Co. From the moment we walked into this little gem our experience was top notch. We had an 8:30pm reservation and had spent the day hiking Johnston Canyon and this dinner was the perfect way to... More
