A tempting selection of the best restaurants in Canmore
This wilderness lodge in majestic Kananaskis Country is a 40-minute drive from Canmore. Drop-in for afternoon tea or reserve 24 hours ahead for Chef Leandro Vega’s seasonally inspired three-course dinner (the menu changes daily). Chef Vega’s passion for adventure brought him to the Canadian Rocky Mountains from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Inspired by locally sourced ingredients and the intimate setting of Mount Engadine Lodge, he brings a unique approach to familiar dishes.
Mount Engadine Lodge has nine cozy guest rooms, yurt accommodation and rustic décor including antique snowshoes and ski poles displayed on the walls. At the family-style dining room with communal tables, diners share stories with their travelling companions and new friends. The deck with mountain and meadow views (watch for moose) is popular on warm days, while the lounge with bookcases and stone fireplaces is the favourite spot for afternoon tea on cooler days. Activities include hiking, cycling, fishing, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
