The portions are small and expensive, but you can try exotic foods not found in Banff. I feel it is worth the expense for the experience. This is not my go to restaurant, but will treat guest when they come to visit.

While in Banff I decided to let my curiosity get the better of me. Entering the Grizzly House is like entering an old school ski chalet. It's dark and rustic and novel. I wanted to be creative with my selection and opted for the exotic...More

This restaurant we were told was a 'must visit'. Looking at the menu, we weren't sure we'd love the food but booked anyway since we didn't have any alternatives and LOVED it. Easily our favourite meal of a two week trip. The whole family ate...More

The restaurant gets really busy so best to book. We were told it was a swingers place in the past so all tables have phones to provide table to table contact! The waitress was friendly but fierce (!) Wine ok and unusual choice of meats-...More

A friend recommended this place and it's well worth a visit. It's very dark inside but has seating outside and window seats if you prefer. We've never eaten fondue and it was a great experience! If you fancy trying something different, try here. The food...More

Fondue, cooking done at table on hot stones. Absolutely the best interactive dining with great food. Exotic foods such as elk, bison, venison, alligator, rattlesnake--plus chicken and beef!
