Tapas / Small Plates
Tapas is consistently voted one of the most Romantic Restaurants in the Canmore and Banff area. We are tucked off Main Street in Canmore next to the Paintbox Lodge in a charming character house that was once a Miners home. Tapas is a style of shared tasting experience involving small plates that our kitchen team creates with mostly organic and locally sourced ingredients, our inspirations are drawn from all over Europe and our own backyard. Dishes are designed for two people to share, we suggest 2—3 dishes per person as a meal.

Have been SEARCHING for a place that has oysters and they were certainly the best I’ve ever had, served on chilled rocks and not ice was a nice touch as well. We also had the mushroom sourdough bread and I am obsessed.

We were upstairs and though there was a little heater it was and stayed cold up there.

Phenomenal food. Servers were informative and extremely friendly. Smaller restaurant that provides more intimate experience. 10/10 would visit again! Would recommend the oysters!

2 moms getting out for the first time without the babies, and it was wonderful. Everything was what we hoped for, from the ambiance to the wonderful service and delicious food. We ordered the chef's sampler plate and it was such a lovely treat.

The tapas plates were great! 4-6 plates shared by 2 people will make for a great dining experience. And leave room for dessert!

It was our anniversary dinner so I had to find a special place. From the easy reservation through OpenTable to the special anniversary card signed by the staff, I knew I had picked a winner.

We had an amazing evening at this restaurant. Decided to go a little out of comfort zone and ordered the Chefs Tasting. Seven courses of variety and amazing flavours.

The service was amazing and the food second to none. We would highly recommend this place to all.

We had a great meal at Tapas, even though we were on the patio in a rainstorm! The weather wasn't wonderful, but the patio heaters were great, and the covering on the patio prevented us from getting wet. We were going to order the Chef's Special, but being that it was Thanksgiving, and I'm not a turkey person, we ended up with a charcuterie board, tostados and tapas, and were quite happy with our choices. We had a great waiter, too, unfortunately, I can't think of his name.
We would recommend and definitely try this again. Make sure to reserve your table ahead of time, though!

The ambiance was like I remembered it. Our table was upstairs. Nice and private except for the fact that it got overwhelmingly hot. Will make sure to get a table on the main floor the next time we go. One of the dishes that I ordered had lobster which I was so excited to eat but when it came the lobster was over cooked (very rubbery) all the other dishes where amazing with lots of wonderful mixes of flavours.

First time we were expose to this restaurant was more than a decade ago. we decided to go back again and we weren't disappointed.
in the 6 days that we spent in Banff, we came twice to this restaurant and although we dined in all fine dinners, this one os by far the best of them all!
we had the tasting menu and the second time we had a la carte - both times were outstanding.
the Chef here is so creative and pays attention to details (pine ash!), that it takes the experience to a different level.
HIGHLY recommended!!!

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner on the patio on a warm October evening. The service was prompt and outstanding, the dishes were wonderful (the short rib and beef tostada were a personal fave!), and the ambience was spectacular. The heat lamps were a nice touch to take the chill out of the air while still being able to enjoy a meal outdoors during the pandemic. We would definitely return!

The food was great and eating in small bits is the best way to go. We normally eat way too much and feel bad...this was well paced and tasty. We normally do not eat bread...it was fabulous by the way...but I should have asked what they would do for a gluten free meal. We did the $60 tasting menu but now that we know what we liked best, we would probably choose our favourites the next time we go.

We went to Tapas for our 5 year wedding anniversary and had a memorable evening. We did the 7 course Chef's recommended menu and then because I had heard such good things I added a couple of oysters too!

The service was great, the food was delightful and the timing of the courses was just right. We ate outside and although it was a slightly cooler evening, they had heaters and blankets and we were very comfortable.

I would highly recommend Tapas!
