A Seasoned Beaujolais?
Our first time in this long standing Banff Restaurant at the corner of Banff and Buffalo.
The dinner menu is varied enough without being a novel, and the cellar is well stocked with different varieties of wines. This is no doubt due to the Chef's 6 course menu with wine pairings, which looked delicious but we ordered a la carte. The Elk was excellent, as was the Duck. We observed great wine handling service, from suggestions to proper Decanting and allowances for "breathing".
The location is unique, with town, mountain and river views which are all the more attractive as the restaurant is above street by one storey.
Thanks for having Gluten Free bread. Maybe show GF more prominently on the menu, so GF's will risk a reservation!

It was our first time at Le Beaujolais (my boyfriend and i) and it we will definitely come back. He even said "we're driving to Banff just for dinner at Le Beajolais" I've already recommended it to my friends! It's definitely a must try. A bit pricey but worth it. The service was outstanding. The decor needs a little bit updating but it wasn't bad. I really liked the big windows. Although I must say, there were two bugs flying around. I would usually get turned off by bugs but this time I didn't. The food was just really good I was able to see past the bugs. :)

Ambience the best at Le Beaujolais
This is the place for a quiet, relaxing romantic dinner. Soft music, soft lighting adds to the spell and attentive waiters take care of every need. This was a step up in price for us but worth it for a special occasion like an anniversary made even more special with the Banff location.

Nice surprise and good value
Dinner for two this past weekend on a Banff overnighter. Last minute reservation, but they fit us in!
Really nice place overall. Great service, tables aren't packed together and for the quality of the meal, the price was quite reasonable. We went with the Veal Saltimboca specials and they were great. Risotto was a touch underdone, but nothing serious.
Best part of the meal was the Chenas Beaujolais that we "stumbled" on while perusing the extensive wine list.
If you're in Banff and looking to expeience some fine dining without taking out a second mortgage, Le Beaujolais needs to be on your list.
