The food and service were very good. The view is great. From the inside, you don't even notice Hwy 1, right below the dinning room. I recommend the ShakShuka.More

Had dinner here one night and the food was extremely tasty and well prepared. The situation is up the hill side and therefore you get great views and the staff were very friendly and helpful. A great evening. Well worth a visit.

We enjoyed this quiet stop with lovely views outside the crowds of Banff. The lunch menu had a little variety, so was good for one stop. The breakfast menu looked delicious, so this would be a good place to consider staying I think!

I Never leave negative reviews but I'm making an exception here. The Host obviously doesn't realize that the customer is paying his salary. He was rude and offensive. The server was unengaged and just going through the motions. The service was extremely slow and it...More
