Magpie & Stump was enthusiastically recommended to us by locals plus online reviews were strong. When we showed during Christmas week for dinner, the place was packed and we had to wait nearly an hour for a table. Service was great: the hostess was lovely and our waitress was super friendly and attentive. So what a bummer it was that... More

I dined here for lunch on a Thursday afternoon and it was very quiet. I ordered the single serving of nachos with chicken. The portion was large but the food itself was disappointing. The chips were good and obviously homemade. The toppings were mediocre at best and the chicken was overcooked and dry. I was hungry but did not finish... More

I love Mexican cuisine but was somewhat disappointed. I found the food was over priced for what you got. We got the nachos on Wednesday night for half price however to add a protein or guacamole was $5 each. And to add an extra veggie like olives or peppers was $2 each. The tacos are good but very small and... More

Great spot for lunch and dinner. Just off Banff avenue and easy to find. Great Mexican food. Every time I visit Banff I eat here more than once.

My wife and I spent a weekend in Banff walking the streets on a cold winter night and came across this place. When we got inside, it was like finding that one local spot where everyone goes. Great food and great service. Don't tell too many people about it, shhh!

An extremely popular place which drew us in. We expected the food to be at least decent given the apparent popularity of this restaurant. We love Mexican food and on this night only felt like nachos, but, who could screw up nachos ? One would think it was a pretty safe bet. Meh ..... mediocre at best, over priced drinks... More

We came here for the first while in Banff for a girl's weekend. The food was excellent, the server and bar tender were great. The hostess was not as friendly as she could've been but other than that pretty great experience!

We popped in here after getting back from the slopes around 5pm so was fairly quiet with not much atmosphere. There was enough to choose from on both drinks and food menu and prices were ok. Portions quite generous and food was nice enough. Service was good.

There were 14 in our party (8 adults / 6 kids). We stopped in for lunch and they were able to seat us right away. Chicken Quesadilla was fabulous, margarita was wonderful. Wait staff was very attentive and friendly. All in all, a great group meal.

Thank Happygetaway
