“Delicious! Fresh! ”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

If you haven't been to the magpie in a long time you should try it again! Had the 1/2 nachos and the spicy shrimp tostadas... Sooo good. The salsa was so yummy I took a little home. Margaritas have always been the best at the magpie and they still are. The service tonight was great. Eat here!

“Excellent, Delicious, Fun!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Magpie & Stump is our favourite restaurant in Banff. The food is excellent, they have kids' menu and vegetarian options. Servers are always polite and helpful. Last time we visited there was a long weight but they managed to seat us in 20 minutes and we even received a complimentary bowl of chips and salsa. It is better to be eating indoors even in nice weather as the interial design of the restaurant and the mood makes you feel like a bit of a Mexico, outside you pretty much facing the back street.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

We stumbled across this restaurant a couple of years ago and keep on coming back. It just seems to get better! Delicious food that includes a great kids menu, drink specials, and such delicious guacamole! The service and atmosphere are fantastic and our kids really enjoy it - especially the sombrero when you walk in the door.
