The Three Ravens Restaurant & Wine Bar. Our a la carte restaurant is an inspiring dimension in dining. Fresh. Seasonal. Creative. These are the signatures you'll find in every dish. The restaurant has one of the finest views of any dining facility in the Bow Valley. Within a few steps of all performance, meeting spaces, and accommodation at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, the Three Ravens offers a convenient and creative venue for your evening dining experience. Savour selections from the quality wine cellar and menu, in the Wine Bar. The Rocky Mountain peaks that surround us form the backdrop for quiet enjoyment, casual meetings, or relaxing conversations.

Yes, they cater for coeliac and dairy and Vegan requirements, even going as far as to modify dishes to comply. Excellent in this regard also.
