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.

Diner Reviews
  • "We dined at Tapas for our anniversary and it was such a wonderful experience. We had 7 dishes plus dessert and all were delicious, highly recommend the mussels and carpaccio. Staff were all very knowledgeable and the wine expertise was impressive. Looking forward to dining here again soon!"

  • "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."

  • "Nice room, very pleasant Flamenco guitarist, most knowledgeable server. Mussels with Bleu Cheese and Sweet Chilli sauce, definitely the highlight, no to mention the carpaccio and stuffed Portobello. And for desert the peanut butter mousse with milk chocolate sauce and banana gelatto a perfect ending to a perfect meal."

  • "This restaurant ,although pricey ,is one of my favourite anywhere . The food dishes are all freshly prepared , and presented superbly. 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."

  • "This was our first time dining here and I decided on Tapas because of other reviews I had read. I (we) were very impressed with the taste experience. Everything we ordered was delicious and the presentation was superb. The staff was very friendly and being a Saturday night, we were not rushed at all. We were on the 2nd floor of the restaurant were it was very quiet and quaint. We will definitely return here."

  • "We have been going to Tapas for close to 10 years, 2-3 times per year. Always fun, always, yummy, always good service, always many choices and menu changes frequently... this is great, but some of our favourites (i.e. piripiri chicken) sometimes disappear. Staff always very proffessional. Not cheap if you get a full roster of tapas... but this never a surprise! "

  • "The food (small dishes to share) was delicious and the sangria was wonderful. We were lucky enough to come on a Friday night with live guitar music, which really added to the experience. Our server was very friendly and helped us choose our dishes. Lively atmosphere, great for an evening out. This is the second time I've been here and the food was equally delicious both times."
