“First class”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

We made our reservation too late so were offered a seat on the patio. Even on a cold rainy night it was warm enough. The service was excellent, as was the food. Save your pennies!

“Best lamb in North America ”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

Soup was delicious -
Carrot, Ginger and Coconut - simple and the right portion. But the true winner was the lamb - absolutely cooked to perfection and the accompanying veg were perfect - calm ambiance with a warm atmosphere and diligent staff -

“A must dining experience in canmore”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Been here twice now. Never disappointed. Meals are always 5 star with service to match. Whatever is on the menu is always fantasic. From duck to lamb and salmon. Very intimate atmosphere. Love this place.

“Hit and Miss!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Although this restaurant has a decent rating on trip advisor, my sister and I were somewhat disappointed. To begin with we were choosing from a restricted menu as the restaurant had been busy and were running out of food to cook with. The lamb was sold out so I think we had 4 entrees to choose from. What we chose was tasty.

The appetizer selection was better. My sister chose the bruschetta which was delicious. I chose the Caesar salad which sounded delicious, but came as 5 romaine lettuce leaves on a long narrow plate filled sparingly with Parmesan cheese, a minute amount of bacon and a potato chip. It was dry and I should have sent it back really. I am not one to complain ( which is daft), but I should have.

It would have been nice to have been told the bottled water was $8 a bottle.

The coffee was lovely. The service was good. We left with mixed feelings.

“A special occasion restaurant in a small town”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Truly a great restaurant in a smaller town. Located of off the main street, well worth finding. The Salmon and Rack of Lamb were both outstanding, some of the best food eaten. When the kitchen found out about our anniversary they decorated a nice dessert dish. Everything was top draw.
