I've ate at magpies several times and it never disappoints. Good food, good vibes, and friendly staff! Taco Tuesdays are bomb so glad its that time of year again! I have to specifically mention the last time I went our server Courtney was amazing. EXTREMELY friendly and attentive. Some of the other servers should take some tips from her!

Visited here on several occasions, a very tasty Mexican restaurant. Also, many options on their menu. Every visit I've had very tasty food and good service. Small tip - Go on Taco Tuesday! 2.50$ tacos, surely you can't say no to that.

I'll start off by saying that I really enjoyed my taco, once I received the right one. My coworkers and I decided to get together in the town of Banff (We all work in the tourism industry in the Banff National Park). I arrived late, and order my meal later, but it still came out with everyone elses, which was... More

Stopped in for lunch on a Friday afternoon. Layout of the place can only be described as tight - hopefully you like your neighbours. The washroom especially so. The host that sat us moved through the small space quickly but we were held up by another table sitting down so by the time we got to the direction where the... More

A lot of people were drunk here and the floors were covered in nut shells. Too dark for my liking, and too dirty too. If you are looking for fun and a loud place to eat, this is it.

The food was amazing. There was five of us and all of us enjoyed the food. The only complaint was from one who said their rice was cold. The prices were ok, not cheep, but not as expensive as other places in Banff. I would definitely recommend this place.

This place is trying to be a nightclub without the dance floor, good music, and lights. Some people were screaming on top of their lungs, some people have already said to quite down. It is a small place, with the so-so music, so it sort of echoes. It is very loud, not loud good.

The food was average, waited over 30 minutes for our entree and it was warm at best when served. The server, cant recall her name, was distracted and quite rude. When asked for a refill she reply with; I'm busy. Would not recommend.
