Tucked away off the Trans-Canada Highway, at the base of Norquay Mountain, is the Juniper. Went for dinner and was not disappointed. The service was exceptional. Our server let us take our time and savour a cocktail. We went out to catch the stunning views. Our server was attentive and came outside to offer a photo of us together. Started with appetizers to share, had beet salad with arugula and mushroom bruschetta. Both were tasty, the bruschetta was grilled, so it was different, yet still pleasant. Best described as a smokey flavour. For dinner had the Eggplant/Zucchini Lasagna and my hubby had Rib Eye Steak. We both shared each, and both were tasty. The steak was very juicy and tender. For dessert we split the brownie and it was delicious. The accompanying ganache and 'chocolate shot' with the brownie were decadent. This is worth the visit. The atmosphere was very relaxed and our server even took the time to light a fire for someone else who requested it. You could come here for a cocktail and appy or a full dinner. Can't wait to come back

This is one fantastic Bistro, located right on the Trans Canada Hwy.
The food is very, very good, and prepared by Red Seal Chef's. We have been for both breakfast and dinner and both were outstanding.
The price is reasonable which sometimes in the area is hard to find.
If your going to, or by Banff Stop in I grantee you will not be disappointed, also I should mention the entire place is very neat and clean.
Stop by you will love it.

This restaurant is inside the Juniper Hotel, which is away from the main drag but is situated overlooking Mount Norquay. The floor-to-ceiling windows, and adjacent patio provided a lovely setting for our meal. The previous reviews said that this restaurant features seasonal flavors and elk/bear/other non-chicken meat :) That was not the case when we visited, however everything we ate was delicious, if not very inventive. The view really wowed us, though. We watched the sun set over the mountain, and wished we were staying here...

The location, off the beaten path, is what gives way to the terrific views.
The atmosphere, warm and welcoming, comfortable, relaxing, romantic.
The Service was attentive, friendly, personable, thank you so much Isabelle!
The Food, lovely in presentation, three courses, each different, truly a tasting treat.

Highly recommend the food, everything we ordered was wonderful. The Sweet Mousse tray of four was a Sweet surprise. We went early and stayed until sunset. The views amazed as you can see the mountains and the Banff Springs Hotel off in the distance. Lots to linger over.
