My daughter had pasta, and I had the Caesar salad. Service was good. Food delicious. I was pleasantly surprised considering how few customers seemed to frequent the Alpha. Good in house restaurant for the resort.

This restaurant is in the Banff Rocky Mountain Resort just outside of Banff and the food was surprisingly good. We actually ended up eating here three times in a week because it was so quiet! The wait times for restaurants in the town of Banff...More
