There were so many breakfast options that sounded delicious, it was very difficult to choose. In the end, we both went with eggs benedict; one with duck confit and goat's cheese, and the other with candaian bacon.
Both were very nicely done, and customized to our liking. Portions were large
The waitress was also very nice in offering Bailey's with our coffee.
The view was lovely.
Will definitely visit for breakfast again!

Liked the energy of this place. Food was great and my son even tried a buffalo burger. The wine selection was top notch.

Went here for a work dinner. It is a roomy place (upstairs) and very accommodating for a large group. We had people with dietary restrictions, so they made minor adjustments to the menu selection (special for the group) to ensure that there were starters for those that could not take the ones on the other menu.

My first taste of bison!
This is a lovely spacious restaurant, with super nice high back chairs (only certain tables). Unfortunately we were only hungry enough for mains (I had bison burger), and a lovely glass of red. The service was good, the waiter was very chatty and full of info.

The food was really very good and I would recommend it as a dining option if you are in Banff.

I stayed in Banff less than a year ago and came here. I had incredible Bison Ribs, and my wife had the steelhead, both were great and topped off with freshly made cookies to dip in milk and Kahlua for dessert. It was an excellent meal, and I would highly recommend it
