We were met at door by Victor He prepared a wonderful fish creation with flavourful vegetables and rice. We went back one more time before our time in Canmore ended. Victor is a very creative chef and even more interesting as a person. His worldly travels and experiences translate into his menus His passion is in preparing and sharing his... More

My husband and I have been here twice for meals after hiking in Canmore. The restaurant is casual, clean, and the service is top notch. The chef's food is spectacular. Meals are made to accommodate preference - vegan, gluten free was no problem at all. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Elita and will be back again and again. It... More

Wonderful personalized service; we never really even looked at the menu - just listened to a few suggestions from the chef and made our choices. Extremely accommodating for allergies, taste preferences, etc. Seafood gumbo was subtly flavourful and the chicken/asparagus salad plate was a fascinating combination of flavours - different with every bite.

Plenty of choice with a diversity of customizable GF options on most dishes. Cook/owner very accommodating and enlightening in culinary offerings with very fast service and hot food. Two of the 3 dishes a bit saucy as is typical but Bison Enchilada house special on point.

After 3 years of living in Canmore and never having dined at Elita's my boyfriend and myself decided to try something new. We were blown away by the service and passion of the owner who not only cooked for us but served us as well. Before we even had a chance to look over the menu he came up with... More

They are very accommodating to Gluten free dinning. I am a celiac so I am very sensitive and they were very willing to change menu items and specials so that I could have what I wanted. My mom also ate here a few weeks ago and raved about it. I had a salad with fish and it was excellent. All... More

I cannot say enough how awful the food and service were at this place. The owner even gave us "free" dessert,, and it was dried out, stale chocolate cake. So many great places to eat in Canmore. Don't go here.

I'm vegan and I saw this place had stellar reviews, so I decided to go there for dinner. It was a quiet Thursday night and as soon as I walked in I was greeted by the owner. He immediately asked if I had any dietary restrictions and I told him I was vegan. No problem! He had a special that... More

We enjoyed yet another fabulous vegan meal at Elita last week. Our carnivorous friend was equally pleased with his selection. The owner/chef is passionate about his craft and willing to accommodate all tastes and dietary requirements. Truly a gem in Canmore.
