Habitat Restaurant & Bar


Recommend To Friends

Grande Rockies Resort, 901 Mountain Street
  • Overview
  • Prices
  • Hours

This contemporary restaurant is a gem hidden from Canmore’s main roads. Here, the culinary team showcases seasonal and locally-sourced fare. Habitat is a good choice for intimate conversations, meeting business associates or catching up with friends. Casual fare is served in the lounge.


Habitat’s dining room features trendy décor with dark wood paneled walls and colourful abstract paintings. Soft jazz plays in the background. Imaginative lighting fixtures fill the restaurant, and a chandelier-style light hangs above each comfortable, leather upholstered booth. Patrons are treated to a Three Sisters mountain view through large windows or from the patio.
