Highly recommend. The service and food are amazing. You have a nice view of the Fairmont Springs Hotel. There's a cute patio with great views and fireplaces. I highly recommend any of their Benny's (eggs Benedict)

The views from this large patio are amazing and in my opinion the best in Banff. The presentation of the food and quality is truly fabulous!

We enjoyed our meal at the Bistro. Started with salads and the Beet salad was the best. Three had the duck and one pork short rib. Delicious. I did mention it was my husband's birthday but no mention of this by the restaurant. I would go back.

Been to this restaurant 3 times now, twice for dinner and once for brunch. All 3 times the food has been amazing, we have been satisfied everything that we have ordered. The service has been super-friendly and great too. Price-wise I would consider it standard compared to other restaurants in Banff.

I've never had a bad meal here. I've never even had a so-so meal here. The food is always creative and delicious. My spinach and pea gnocchi was utterly sublime. The rest of the group also loved their meals. I shared a dessert that was beguiling in its unusual flavours: brown butter biscuit with peach caramel and a herbed ice... More

I'm super happy with this place. I found the atmosphere quiet and inspirational. The view of the mountains is delightful, and the food was made fresh to order. A little gem tucked away in the mountains. The architectural details were also of good quality. I'd be interested to see what the guest rooms in the hotel are like.

We went for drinks only, before the sun went down. You don't have a sunset view, but a great view anyway. The whiskey drinks were possibly the best of our trip. Before dark, we sat by the window to enjoy the view. Then we were able to move to the fireplace and enjoy the cozy fire. Very pleasant place. Didn't... More

It was my wife's birthday and we actually wasn't expecting something new, but after the awesome service and delicious food we figured out the Bistro was our best choice that day. We choose the birds for two, and I was a bit afraid because, how can a chicken compete with duck? And you know: outstanding flavor, amazing mixture with no... More
