The Juniper Bistro is located with panoramic views in the mountains of Banff National Park. The menu is fine dining with a touch of rustic with the fireplace going creating a cabin style of atmosphere.

5 of us ate here whilst on holiday. Two shared the Game duo, Scallops and bacon, Wild Boar chop for another and striploin for another. The service was friendly, the food was lovely and the room minimalistic but very nice.
