“Nice setting, decent food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

Beautiful restaurant with great views and light. Had the beetroot salad and seafood Boubollaise. Both were tasty and fresh, but nothing special. Was looking for a treat and did not find it.
I would go back to try the tapas.

“Worst meal we had in Canada”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

After being recommended this place by hotel concierge we developed some expectations and booked early in the day. The service was at best unattentive, slow, although place was virtually empty.
Then came my fish and chips which would have shamed our local chippie, greasy and soggy fries.
But still edible, which is more than could be said for my husband's pasta dish, served on a metal bowl, straight from the oven, and was left uneaten without the waitress commenting.
Not a nice place in our view, more like cheap canteen.

Had to wait a while for the meals, even though it wasn't busy but in the end the food was superb, so it was worth it!

“Great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

We had a great dinner at Olive Bistro. My husband had the steak and I had the crispy chicken. The presentation was beautiful and the meal was delicious. Our server was attentive also. It was not at all busy the night we were there.

“A Wonderful Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

We were in Jasper for only one night, and really wanted a nice dinner, that wasn't "touristy", and we found it. There were local people enjoying a meal and a nice glass of wine. The food was delicious, and beautifully presented. The service was lovely, and we so enjoyed our server, she was attentive and interested in our travel plans.
It definitely is on the upper scale, for dinner, but well worth it. Good valu for your dollar. The lunch menu looked very reasonable price wise.
