“Outstanding food in a gorgeous landscape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Recently, we had dinner at this restaurant in Banff and it was easily one of the best restaurant experiences I've ever had. Service was EXCELLENT and the atmosphere is beautifully European. The meal was outstanding - would definitely recommend the chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese. Superb wine list. All the way around, an outstanding experience.

“Amazing food and friendly service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

I really enjoyed my latest meal at Ticinos. The service was great and very friendly and the food was awesome. The cheese fondue will keep me coming back! Reminds me of traveling in Europe.

“Agree, mediocre experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

Of all the restaurants we tried in Banff, this one stuck out because of poor food and poor service. Also very dated.
If you 're looking for a good meal, try Chilis at the Fox, or The Keg at the Caribou.

“Mediocre Experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014 via mobile

We had the cheese fondue appetizer and the beef & shrimp fondue. The food itself was okay. It tasted fine but it's not something I'd go back for next time I'm in Banff. The service we had was terrible! We were left in a corner and ignored for most of our meal. We were at the point where we were considering going to find our waiter behind the bar and asking for our bill so that we could finally leave. There are far too many great restaurants in Banff to return to one that's mediocre.
