“Fresh, delicious food”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

We ate here on a week night for dinner. We had no reservations and were seated quickly. We were a group of six. The service was excellent. Food was slow coming out, but was totally worth the wait as the chef obviously cooks everything from scratch, with very fresh ingredients.

The calazone was amazing. Huge portion, i couldn't eat it all. Three people at our table had the pasta, and raved about how fresh and delicious it was. One person had the filet and described it as the best steak he has ever had.

Great night out. Great food. Would definately go again

“Came highly recommended”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Super Mexican food,superbly cooked and at a really reasonable price considering its in the centre of Banff.Laurie our waitress was very helpful as we could'nt make up our minds what to eat,enchiladas were tasty and nicely spiced all washed down with a couple of local beers.Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone,just be advised they seem to close around 4.00pm to 5.30pm as while we ate they were turning away customers away saying sorry we are closed.

“excellent food and presentation”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

The food, presentation and service were all excellent at Coyotes. The prices are fairly reasonable as well, compared to similar restaurants that I've eaten in.
The dishes are sort of a southwestern fusion and I had grilled tenderloin topped with the red pepper and green chile relish. The relish was very good and had some spice to it, but was not overpowering or too hot. The tenderloin was quite good, although I asked for medium-well and got a steak that was more on the well-done side (maybe keep this in mind when ordering). The sweep potato polenta was tasty, but a tad on the bland side and a bit runny (not sure if that is the normal texture or not). The mild/bland flavor was not a problem since it balanced pretty well with the spiciness and stronger flavor of the relish.
The wait staff was friendly, efficient, and accommodating... our waitress managed to balance a party of about 25 people, plus several other tables (ours included) without getting flustered and remaining cordial throughout.
The restaurant is on the smaller side so I would definitely book a reservation, esp. during the peak summer months. I strongly recommend this place during a visit to Banff!

“Still my favourite spot in Banff”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

The Coyote is my favourite dinner spot in Banff for two main reasons: the food and the staff. It is ideal for a solo traveler like me. The seating at the bar allows me to watch the food be prepared and talk to the chef's and servers as they work, which beats sitting at a table reading a book or worrying about taking away a table in a busy restaurant. The food is always great, I really like their soups and the special was very good. I highly recommend the Coyote for both solo diners or worth-wise, especially anyone looking for a break from chain restaurants.
