Atmosphere & Accolades

This newly renovated restaurant has arguably the best view in town. From the secluded three-tier patio with awning (voted best in Canmore by local newspaper readers) and through the dining room’s huge windows is a 240° panorama of the Rundle Range, Three Sisters and water-protected 9th green. There’s a vaulted ceiling, big rock fireplace and glass wall that opens to the deck.


Local musicians play occasional live music in summer and winter (listed online).
