    The staff are clearly passionate about the food, the service and the wine/cocktails. So much so, that we thought they must be part owners in the restaurant. The food was beautifully plated and incredible. The portion sizes are small which is perfect if you are doing the tasting menu and also means we had plenty of room to try multiple dishes! We eat here whenever we are in Canmore!

    A fantastic dining experience. The staff are all knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly. The food from the amuse bouche all the way entrees and drinks (we skipped dessert) had unique, thoughtful, and creative. We've done bith a la carte and the tasting menu and loved it both times. This has become a regular Canmore destination for us now!

    We had an amazing dinner at this restaurant. It is a small, intimate setting with fabulous service. The food was beautifully displayed with interesting flavors. You could tell how much creative work went into making these dishes. I would highly recommend making the trip to Canmore to eat here if you’re visiting Banff!

    Absolutely outstanding experience as always. This is our third time at the restaurant and now, we make a point of driving from Calgary specifically to experience such beautiful food. No dish disappoints. We like to leave the selection of wine pairing and dishes up to the staff they are experts and never made a wrong choice for us. Absolutely phenomenal place. We will be definitely back again.

    Absolutely fabulous food, outstanding presentation, superb service. However, the cost was staggering. We chose the tasting menu for the four of us (and we were aware of the cost $110 per person). We did not ask the price of the wine pairing, which hugely increased the price. We will return, but will avoid the wine.

    We had a lovely time at Ankor. We came here to celebrate my birthday. Food is amazing and service is also wonderfull. Me and fiance are both real foodies. We're from Belgium and love to go out to diner. Ankor is one of the best restaurants we have been to so far. Thank you for the great night. If we ever come back to Canmore we'll visit you again.

    Family get together. One of the better dinners we have had in years. Our server was truly lovely. The tasting menu was amazing and the kitchen was happy to accommodate gluten free. The wine list was lovely and even better, a knowledgeable young woman to guide the menu match. If ever back in the area, we would come again and agian! Highly recommend.

    The tartare was hands down the best I’ve ever had. Our waiter made our cocktails as well and they were absolutely delicious (we ordered another round). We had the duck and beef, both of which are not only pieces of art, but Michelin star worthy. If you are in town and looking to make reservations… Don’t wait… just book for Ankor already. 5/5 best meal we had in Banff/Canmore.

    This is a fine cuisine restaurant, on the end of the spectrum that's close to molecular gastronomy. The food is tremendous and the staff were wonderful. Really great creativity and care in plating and the mix of flavors. That said, if you're looking for something with fried foods in a basket or judge your meals by the pound, this won't be the place for you.

    We did the chef pre-fix taste meal…6 courses. It was decadent, presented beautifully and the service was very good. It was a bit pricey as a pre-fix but otherwise would not have been so. The duck and the beef tartare were our favorites but it was all delicious. The wine list is very good too. A special place!!
