“Awesome dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

I read the reviews on Tripadvisor for The Trough before booking. It was rated number 1 restaurant in Canmore and we were not disappointed. The food and service were outstanding. Lovely atmosphere as well. Book well in advance as it is very small and quite popular!

“Enjoyable Evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

The Trough is a small little restaurant where the decor is rustic and the food is good. The bruschetta was Amazing! Remainder of our meal was mixed - good beef tenderloin but potatoe cake was not very good. My spouse had Red Thai Curry Chicken which was okay. Sticky Toffee Pudding was very enjoyable especially the sauce. Teamwork between staff helped make the night flow well. Seating is limited and this restaurant is popular so reservations are necessary.

“Dining with the Pigs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

There are little pigs peaking out from all sorts of surprising places at The Trough. The servers were very knowledgeable about the menu & specialties and were unobtrusive & watchful in serving the meal. The ingredients were exceptional, with an emphasis on local & fresh. Presentation was exceptional & the serving size was reasonable, not over-sized. The meal was expensive, but worth it. Recommend making reservations, especially on weekends. Also consult a map. The location is on a smaller side street.

“Great Food and Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

The food was something out of the ordinary with a good wine selection in a very cosy environment. Our waitress all the way from Walles, in a perfect English accent, we're very helpfull in guiding us to make the best selection of food to suit our different pallets.
