A word from Tapas Restaurant
"Tapas" Food for sharing …
In Spain & Portugal Tapas are considered a culture. Shared amongst friends in a relaxed and unhurried environment, to be combined with wine, lively conversation, tall tales and spirits!
Our Tapas Menu offers "Small Dishes" reflecting the modern fusion flavours of Portugal & Spain. Dishes are designed for two people to share, we suggest 2—3 dishes per person as a meal.

  • "Lovely meal sampling tapas plates. The smoked salmon tower was superb, as was the chili shrimp with bread to soak up the chili marinade. Delicious dessert. Wait staff were friendly and extremely attentive."

  • "Eating "Tapas" style was brand new for me and wife. We were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary and Tapas provided the perfect atmosphere and dining cousins for a relaxing and romantic meal. The food is out of this world and the staff are great. This is a new favorite for us in the Canadian Rockies. My wife and I even chatted that we would drive from our home 2 hours away just to come for supper."

  • "We have been here once before almost two years ago. We've wanted to come back ever since! The only minor negative thing was that I think we were forgotten once we moved from the bar to our table. We didn't get a menu or service for about ten minutes. Once our incredible server Ryan realized he felt awful. Ryan was wonderful and very knowledgable. He was very welcoming and interesting to talk to. The food was perfect and we loved every dish. My husband is a chef and he loved everything! My fave was the pot au chocolat, it was identical to what my mother makes. We aren't wine drinkers but we noticed the great wine list. While we sat at the bar the girl bar tending was so friendly and she suggested some great beer for us to try. LOVE TAPAS!"

  • "Great food and wines. Service outstanding. Make a reservation if you don't want to be disappointed especially on the weekends. Outside dining in warmer weather best way to go."

  • "We were staying in Canmore and decided to try Tapas. The food was good though pricey for what you got . Most of it was good though we ordered the steak med rare and it cam out very well done. No one came around to ask how it was so we ate it. With that said our server was great other than the one time we would have liked to have said something he didn't come around. I would recommend this restaurant it would be great with a big group though it is a very small space."

  • "My partner and I were very happy with our experience here! We ordered 4 different Tapas, all were EXCELLENT. We also ordered some white wine sangria and a few cocktails, and were very pleased with our drinks as well. The service was good - the perfect balance of being there when you need someone, but no one was lingering by our table. We sat outside on the deck and it was a perfect night to enjoy good food and drinks!"

  • ""I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a Spanish Bodega. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The mussels are our all time favorite. the new summer menu features some great Salmon choices. White or Red Sangria, refreshing in the summer heat . Service was well-timed and friendly, winter or summer its our choice for a food treat out.""

  • "Recently experienced Tapas on a Sunday Evening, it was very busy and they were turning away anyone without a reservation, so make sure that you make a reservation if you want to try out Tapas. Started with Sangria and just got better from there! This was our first time trying this style of restaurant, where all servings are of appetizer size, but we really enjoyed sharing and trying out the different dishes. We had the Portabella mushroom with brie and pecans, Salmon Tower, Mussels, Lamb Lollipops and BBQ ribs. Every dish was a new taste experience, we thoroughly enjoyed each one, and even though they are smaller plates we were stuffed by the time we were finished. Only complaint was proximity of table, did not allow for much privacy."

  • "With busy schedules of work / home / life balance, we plan a get away from the City to Canmore about every 6 months for a little spa, a little shopping and room for a little food and Tapas is on our list of "must do". The sizes of each dish is the perfect to share and having a new menu upon our arrival with seasons allows us to always try something amazing when we come to dine here. Thanks for the wonderful service and the amazing food. With busy schedules again, we will see you in another 6 months!"

  • "Forget Banff. Hangout in Canmore. Tapas is an amazing place to eat. Crazy good menu. Great service. I imagine the outdoor dining would have been fantastic however we chose to eat inside. Mistake. It is very very cramped inside and this makes it kind of uncomfortable to go there for a date. I recommend you eat outside. Aside from the cramped indoor area this place is an amazing place to eat."

  • "Very innovative tapas and great service. Dates with chorizo was a favorite. 3 stars for food due to price. At $15+ per tapas, pricey. Expect $50/person just for food."

The wine list is very adequate and there are plenty of choices throughout the wide price range . There care a couple of tips. Make a reservation and when ordering try the portobello mushroom dish with Brie cheese and a slice of pear!!!! Wow!"

  • "Food was great and it is always nice to try their new creations. Service was a little above average, nothing special. The live music was really nice. Low key but enjoyable. I was fine paying the bill and had a tip amount in my head, but when I went to enter it into the debit machine the only options were 15%, 18%, or 20%, nothing else, and no $$ amount option. I found this quite strange as I do feel it is my right tip whatever I please, unless I am notified in advance. All I saw was "Gratuity Not Included". Oh well I am sure we will be back for our bi-annual visit, just left a bit of a sour taste in the end."
