Tapas offers a lively fusion of creative contemporary and Old World flavours and libations. We have designed a menu of specialty dishes that are prepared to order from the freshest farm to table ingredients available, as well as foraged goods, and what we can grow ourselves. Everything is made in house by our talented kitchen team led by award winning Tracy Little. Our menu offers gluten free, vegan, and vegetarian options.

Spectacular. One of the best meals we’ve ever had. Everything was exceptional. Charcuterie, pirogies, elk short ribs. Topped with unbelievable, moist strawberry shortcake. And Park maple rye made in Banff. Thank you so much chef Tracy, Renee and Katie. Unforgettable.

Vegan No garlic / onions No mushrooms No soya Gluten free A real chef can easily accommodate, and this one did. Food was unique, matched very well with herbs and sauces. Nothing was overly excessive with salt (which most restaurants would do) . On par...for Michelin status 2 or 3 star. Ive travelled the world and can honestly say this was up there with one of most enjoyable meals. Hats off to Tapas in Canmore AB, canadaMore

My wife and I were staying near by, and didn't feel like going in for dinner, so we decided to order take out so we could enjoy it with our four legged son. I've always appreciated Tapas restaurants because you get to enjoy a bit...of everything. This place was no exception. I kid you not, EVERYTHING we ordered as amazing! It's actually hard to call one item out as a negative, but seriously, everything was superb! I loved it so much, we packed what we couldn't finish to bring back home in Calgary, and it was still delicious the next day! Highly recommend: Lamb Ribs (MUST ORDER!!!)

Everything from the decor, food, atmosphere and staff was unforgettable. My new favorite spot to dine in Canmore. The staff are incredible. The food was out of this world and creative. Love is defiantly put into the food. The plating and presentation was beautiful. Hands...down you have to eat here. Thank you to all the staff who gave me the best birthday dinner. Highly recommend!More

Tapas is a must in Canmore. The menu changes day by day based on the freshness of the ingredients and the chef is creative and whips us delicious and attractive dishes. A good selection of wines. The prices are a little high but the quality...of food is more than worth the prices. Since we had a pet, we sat in the lower patio so not much to say about the ambience but the service was good and the staff attentive. All in all, an experience worth repeating many times.More

This was our third time visiting and it won't be our last. Every time we have come here, we have been delighted in our meal choices! From the great service to the tasty food choices, we have enjoyed every moment of our meals. We have...never felt rushed; even when they squeezed us in on our second visit without a reservation. I am sensitive to low quality foods and my body has always felt good after eating here. We highly recommend this place and look forward to our next visit. We have always felt like the most important customers every time. Highly recommend this restaurant!More

This restaurant is a must stop whenever we come to Canmore for a visit. Menu changes frequently and everything is always tasty. Our favourite resto in Canmore hands down.

Hi we are small intimate space so very young toddlers can be tricky (speaking as a parent). Young children are just fine as long as they can find items on our menu that they will like. We do not have a children's menu.
