The menu doesn’t really evoke a bistro to me, but the food is pretty good. The meat and cheese platter was nice, and the pork belly was excellent. The mains had a few problems: the wild boar chop was a bit dry and the scallops tasted slightly funny. The kitchen was rather slow. I’d give the place 3.5 stars if I could.

A bistro or bistrot /ˈbiːstroʊ/, is, in its original Parisian incarnation, a small restaurant, serving moderately priced simple meals in a modest setting. Bistros are defined mostly by the foods they serve.

We went to the Juniper for the first time, and wont be the last time!
Our server recommended the juniper benny and shakshuka and both were delightful.
Isabelle, our server was really attentive and great recommendation of what to do in Banff.

We had breakfast at Juniper Bistro before heading to Lake Louise to hike, ice skate and go on a horse drawn sled ride so we wanted a breakfast that would hold us over until the afternoon. We went to Juniper Bistro and it was wonderful; exceptional views, our server was very kind, prompt and good flexible and the food was incredible. I will definitely come back next time I am in town!

We expected all per the high reviews.
There was one waiter and one "guy" that we were told was the manager. Those two people serving th entire place!. Yes a bar tender in the bar.
We waited one hour to get our food. We had to send back food to re heat, terrible.
Food cold raw un cooked. The worse experience in Banff or most say the only one and BAD experience in Banff. Simply terrible!

Hi Julio,

I wish I had more information on when you dined with us so I could bring up these matters. We stick to strict timings for our food to be out to our guests so I am shocked to here this 1hr wait, thank you for letting me know so I can action this as this is not our norm.

Kind Regards,
