Limited menu but wonderful views. Food is good though small portions for the price, and bread is not complimentary. Friendly staff.

A little bit away from the crowds of Banff. 1-10, I give it an 8. Good food. Nice view. Easy parking right close to the restaurant. A little pricey, but isn't everything in Banff?
