This was the first time I had been to Jasper and in doing some research prior to the trip, I had narrowed it down to three places and after some very careful considerations and especially comparing the menus as well as the chefs behind them, it became obvious that Tekarra was the place to go.
My wife and I always look forward to trying out different restaurants and are quite picky as to where we get to enjoy that experience. And now for the actual review.
Firstly, the restaurant is a bit out of town, actually, it took us about 10 mins to get there and it is located next to cabins that are for rent on site.
We had a reservation and I had asked for a nice table as the mrs. and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary. Linden, had us waiting for no more than two minutes at the front before he escorted us to our table in the corner overlooking the restaurant and as well as views of the trees, cabins and totem poles from the window.
We started out with appetizers and they were fantastic! I had the foie gras and it was one of the best I've had. My wife had the scallops and she liked them so much that she ordered them a second time and enjoyed them even more.
For my main course, I had the Macadamia Crusted Lamb Rack (medium rare, of course) and it too was one of the best lamb I have had! It was cooked perfectly. The flavours were such that you did not want the experience to stop. My wife had the Arctic Char. She was very impressed as to the whole presentation, portions, flavours and everything else that went into our food.
We had a "sampler" plate of desserts. It too was perfect as there were about 5 different types of desserts in mini portions that was just enough to end this wonderful experience without having you feel heavy and bloated.
To say that we highly recommend Tekarra would be a massive understatement! From the minute you walk in to the time you leave, the timing for all the courses, as well as the bill, is impeccable! We never felt rushed in any way at all. Although, keep in mind that we were there on a Wednesday evening.
Thank you Tekarra for an amazing experience! We look forward to coming out to see you again.
Vishal & Jenn.
