I stumbled upon this place after spending the day at Sunshine. Judging by the number of ski's leaning out front I assumed it had to be a good place. Cory was my server and recommended the Tragically Hip burger which sounded pretty strange with the PB but it was amazing! Ended up coming back later that night for some live music. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a bite to eat or a fun friendly atmosphere to meet some people.

When you pop in this looks like your standard low end pub, but what's missing in decor is more than compensated for in food quality & value. A small menu done well beats any high end restaurant that looks fantastic but shrimps on the portions and quality.

I'd describe Bruno's fare as updated classic comfort food. The menu has enough variety to satisfy everyone in the family as my son will attest to. The food was fresh, well presented and spot on for flavours. Not over or under seasoned, the chef allows the true flavours of the meal do the talking. We walked away full but not uncomfortable and the offerings were well priced. We tried the pulled pork on ciabatta bun, which was described as "great". A classic hamburger which wasn't masked by any cloying sauces or smothered in cheese. Lastly was the beef dip on pretzel bun with classic a'jus, very lean beef and a very tasty light a'jus. We opted for salads rather than fries and they were tasty as well, the Caesar even featured real bacon (only suggestion here is to use real Parmesan rather than the powdered style). The house dressing was also described as very tasty.

We will go back as I really am tempted to try the other menu items.

Love this place for excellent food, drink and friendly people! Very cozy and a real local feel. Went in with the family for dinner and enjoyed our time for hours beyond that. Jerry went out of his way to make us feel at home and relax after our day of skiing!

If you're ever visiting Banff, you MUST visit this brilliant little bar! We called in on the first day of our trip and it became our "local" for the whole holiday. Tasty food, great choice of drinks, excellent staff and a great atmosphere make this place the perfect little gem that it is! Thanks for a great time, Jerry and Matt!

Bruno's has been in town for quite some time now. But since the new ownership took over, they've really turned things around (for the better). Whether you're looking for a nice breakfast, or enjoying the night out on the town, this place is a beauty. The staff here are very welcoming and attentive, even the owners are there working almost everyday. Did I mention the affordable prices, both food and booze??? Great value!!! If you wanna have a good time in a neighbourhood environment, I would recommend this place to anyone. We'll see you soon guys, cheers.
