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!

“Just off the Beaten Path Gem”

This was a terrific meal just outside the crowded little town of Jasper. Our server, Liz, was great and led us to two outstanding dishes. This is a can't miss for anyone looking for a nicer meal in Jasper.

“We had a lovely dinner at Tekarra”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

We had a lovely meal at this rustic restaurant in a cabin park. The trio of salmon was excellent and the highlight of our meal. Everything we had was delicious. Highly recommend when in Jasper.

“Good but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

We went to Tekarra based on everyone's rave reviews, but we were a little disappointed. The restaurant is cozy enough, and the girl serving us was very efficient. However, our meal was not that great. I had their chicken, but half the chicken was overcooked, while the potato was undercooked. Fortunately our waitress had kept us supplied with bread (which is excellent), otherwise we would have left poorer and hungry.

“Top Tier Dining in the Mountains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Third time here. Always good. Excellent food and menu options. Servers always first rate and knowledgeable. Handled children well. Can be a tad noisy if full (which it usually is).
