A tempting selection of the best restaurants in Canmore
Hidden but worth finding, this Zen-inspired bistro and lounge offers stylish dining. Perfect for celebrating life’s special events, Wild Orchid features a 100% gluten-free menu with dishes that are proudly house-made to order from scratch. Consistent with the restaurant’s Asian theme, a wide array of premium sake is stocked, while an innovative cocktail menu and summer drink specials provide cooling relief during hot days on the patio.
Atmosphere & Accolades
Earthy colours, flowers and smiling Buddha statues evoke the ambience of the East, while the Ha Ling Peak and Rundle Range panorama, which is not obvious from the restaurant’s entrance, provides some of the most stellar views in Canmore. Osaka-trained chef Shogo Sawada expertly fuses Far East flavours into original, artful cuisine that CBC radio critic John Gilchrist calls “some of the best Asian food we’ve ever had.“
