The food was average. We had expected so much more. Service was excellent. The dining room is warmly decorated.

We were exactly on time for our early reservation. The food was very good but the server was distracted and even went out of the door to speak on his mobile some of the time. The restaurant got busy and the server forgot to bring our pudding. We had to ask a waitress for help - our original server brought... More

We booked this restaurant 2 months before our visit as we heard such good things about it. It did not disappoint,we had a fantastic evening and the food was exceptional,I had the Duck confit which was possibly the best bit of food I have ever tasted.

We stopped in for a quick breakfast. They where offering both a conventional and hot buffet breakfast. We both had the hot buffet and it was very good. The price was very reasonable.

A couple of months ago I did some research on TripAdvisor to find the perfect place for a romantic candlelit dinner in the area of Jasper. Because I wanted it to be special, I approached the staff of the Tekarra Lodge to see whether they would be able to facilitate in my needs and help me surprise my girlfriend, to... More

We chose to eat here for our wedding anniversary the day we arrived in Jasper based on recommendations from others on here and we were not disappointed. Amazing food, great service and we will be eating here on our return trips!

Spending three nights in Jasper while hiking I was so excited to try some great restaurants. Tekarra was rated very well by Fodors and they usually know restaurants. We had a very mediocre experience. Service was not attentive, wine selection not great. We split the smoked trout nori roll to start. It was fine but nothing special. My husband had... More

We have been at the Tekarra Restaurant last year and - staying at the Lodge - went there again twice. It is one of the best restaurants in Jasper in my view, there is really no need to go into the village for eating. We had elk carpaccio and bison ribs the frist evening, Arctic char on the second. All... More

We had dinner at the Tekarra restaurant and have chosen this as this was a bit out of town of Jasper. Nevertheless the restaurant was full when we left. The setting was nice with a good choice of food. Service was fast and correct. A place I would surely recommend when in Banff.

This is one of our favourite places in Jasper. I had not been in a few years and this year it was a new menu and new owners so I was anxious to try...we were not disappointed. One of the best parts was you can take a glass of wine and go for a walk by the river while waiting... More

Description
Welcome to our "cabin in the woods", Tekarra Restaurant, Jasper's fine dining experience since 1952. Chef Dale Nutt, and owners Mike and Cyndi Day, created a menu inspired by regional products such as Alberta bison and AAA beef, Wild Boar, free run chicken, and Arctic Char. Our appetizers feature small and shared plates and follow the same theme with meat and cheese boards, house smoked trout, and deviled eggs with bacon jam, to name but a few. Our service team, led by Jesse Lent, are here to ensure you have an enjoyable, relaxing dining experience. Cheers!
