“Best Pizza Ever!”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

The Bear Street Tavern was recommended to me by friends (for the pizza) and I was not disappointed! Had dinner on the patio, started with a bucket of sangria (delicious) and then some garlic cheese fingers - get them with bacon, they are delicious! Then we had pizzas, amazing works of art. Definitely the best pizza I have had yet!

“Pizza Perfection”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

An almost perfect evening. Never thought we would enjoy a purely pizza restaurant with 4 large TV's so much. Cat from Perth was a super attentive waitress and very friendly but unobtrusive - very difficult to get that balance right. We shared two delicious pizzas. My only possible improvements would be if a modest Italian wine were available and perhaps chilli peppers as an additional topping. Great fun.

“Ridiculously good pizza!”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

They advertise they are this, and they deliver!! ...and it's the secret sauce they give you and show you how to add it to the pizza experience! Won't say more otherwise it will ruin the fun! But all I can say is I'll be buying those sauce ingredients myself now and using them to enhance my pizzas! Yum! Came across this place off Main Street next to the well advertised Bison Restaurant, didn't book, and glad we went in this door ! Looks small and unassuming from the street, but wait til they take you
through to out back! It's comfortable and has a great vibe. Staff super friendly and helpful. Will be recommending this hidden gem to friends who come over to this awesome part of the world.

“Amazing Calzone”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

We stopped in for pizza and were informed of the calzone special which is any pizza on the menu made as a calzone. Wow, this was one of the best we have ever had. I had the Big Bird and my husband had the Bison. Both were delicious. The unique dipping in the homemade chili oil and honey was surprisingly good. This is a busy place with very friendly and attentive staff. Will definately go back here on our next Banff trip.

“Fantastic pizza every time”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

The Bear Street Tavern never disappoints. It serves perfect pizzas every time I've been in there and has great specials during the week. They're also very accommodating to large groups and it's a great starting point for a night on the town in Banff.
