There aren't many posh places to eat in Banff, so we were pleased to celebrate our anniversary with a trip to Saltlik.

There are two parts to Saltlik - the sports bar downstairs and the a la carte restaurant upstairs. Some of the food is available in both, but for the "finer dining", go upstairs.

It's a busy place, and there are no end of tarty dressed staff to look after you. We had one at the front door, one at the top of the stairs, one to take our coats, one to explain the menu, one to take our order and one to serve our food.

The carpaccio was very nice, and the fillet steaks were perfectly cooked to our requests. The apple crumble was the star though, and we had thought ahead far enough to share that, as all portions are massive.

Lots of kids around, so clearly it's a friendly place with a lot of choice for all the family.

Menu had a great variety of foods from lamb sausage linguini to a BBQ sandwich with chipotle mayo to steaks! It was pretty busy and self-seating on the ground floor so took a while to get a seat but worth it.

The food at the Saltlik was really good. The way they serve it a little interesting. You order your main and then your order your side which is shared by the entire table. This worked out really well for our family but I am not sure if it would be ideal if it were just two people.

Overall though I would definitely go back.

This was recommended by the front desk at our hotel, the food is fantastic with good service and an excellent selection of wines and beers. Be prepared to part with your hard earned cash as its a bit pricey. This was by far the most expensive restaurant in Banff we ate at. Well work a visit as a holiday treat.

Food was very good but the waiter was a little too quick at removing the dishes before finishing the meal. Arrogant male waiter! Everything else was very nice,
