Awesome meal in our own little heated ice fishing tent. Very safe. Great service from Ollie and Mandy. Tapas were so good. Duck Pop, carrots and date cake were particularly appreciated. Would love to visit again when restriction lifted.
We ate in an ice fishing tent on the patio. The tent was cozy warm with great ambiance and the service was absolutely excellent. The food...yummmm! We had the duck pops, the oysters, the heirloom carrots, lobster gnocchi and the elk short rib.
We will be back!!
The experience was very interesting. As we walked up the stairs, we were told that you have to knock on the kitchen door so that you don’t get hit as you walk up the stairs. We were escorted upstairs into an area that had a very low roof line. Not great for 6 foot people. We went to order our meal but found out that they had run out of that food item. We then chose a replacement shrimp with rice dish. When it arrived, I commented to the waiter that I think we might have gotten the wrong dish as there wasn’t any rice. He said, it is there, see those few black specks that is forbidden rice. I couldn’t help but giggle because with the possibly 30 grains of rice that were present it definitely was forbidden. The high price tag that goes along with these dishes and having two different servers didn’t help the experience. Needless to say, we left hungry. I would recommend for the price going to another place in Canmore that gives you a better experience.
Wonderful place with great food and excellent service. We’ll be back.
Thank you so much for your feedback RobertC!
Every plate was a culinary experience. Highly recommend.
Thank you Cartsen!!
One of favorite go tos for great food and overall experience. Service is great and the food is even better. Hood luck as you navigate this next lockdown. We will be cheering for you!!
Thank you so much for your kind words!
Fantastic and romantic little place to eat. The food was amazing, we did the Chef’s tasting and we were not disappointed. One of the best meals we have ever had. Service and ambiance was great! Would definitely recommend!
Food was significantly overpriced and quality was sub par. We advised our server and she stated that everyone else seems to be enjoying the food which meant we had the issue. Also the chef ran after us after we left to give us a gift card; we opened and were left with glitter all Over our clothes and an empty MacDonald’s gift card! Who does that?!! Never been so insulted in my life.
Delicious food. Friendly attentive service. Amazing ambiance. Wicked chef!!
Thank you so much Carolyn C!
It was a great experience. Their outdoor setting was nice and cozy.
Have been many times and it never disappoints. Highly recommend you go. Fabulous food and a great wine list!
Tapas was an excellent date experience! The service, ambiance, food quality including flavours and presentation was outstanding. Highly recommended!
The food was inconsistent. Some dishes were fantastic; and others were quite disappointing. The service was quite poor unfortunately. After we were seated it took about 45 minutes for our server to come and take our drink order. We ordered the tasting menu, and it took more than 3 hours. Some dishes came within minutes of eachother, and others had 45 minute gaps.
Everything about the evening was fantastic. Great food, service and atmosphere. A must try if you haven't.
One of the best dining I have had in all Canada
Thank you so much we are very proud of what we can offer!
Everything was absolutely perfect.
The table next to us had loud children, but you can't fault the restaurant. The food was off the charts- 5 is not high enough!! We had the chefs tasting with an accidental plate of beef tartar...that is 9 courses of DELICIOUSNESS!! what was best? The mango scallops or the lobster with asparagus and hollandaise...my mind still doesn't know. By far the best meal on a trip filled with great meals. Highly recommend that you experience this joy.
Always pleased with the service, food quality and ambiance!!
Amazing, as always. The Lobster Gnocchi and prawns were our favourite, but we honestly didn’t have a bad bite. Excellent service as well!
Food was amazing!
First time eating here. The food was amazing with more than enough portion size.
Service was top notch. All employees work together to ensure no customer is left long without be served
Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anybody visits the Canmore area
Absolutely amazing experience. The Chef Tasting blew me away.
This was my first time visiting tapas and it was a great experience! I will definitely be back
We always look forward to an evening at Tapas. Great food.
We reserved a table for 2 for my husband's 40th birthday and they made the evening so special. We arrived around 9pm and right away the ambience was perfect. The space is quite intimate and the staff made us feel at home.
The food was phenomenal and at the end of our meal the staff surprised us with a little birthday treat and a birthday card signed by the whole team!
The staff are very personable and everything about this restaurant made our night special. Highly recommended.
Great experience and would highly recommend for a nice night out with someone special.
Thank you Yvonne for your review!
Amazing service and great experience. Thank you!
We both greatly enjoyed the meal
Thank you so much for your review Taylor!
One of the best meals out we have ever experienced. We felt welcome, the ambiance and music was great, service was attentive and I was blown away by the food. Loved beet mouthful! A must try!
If you're wanting a unique, delicious dining experience Tapas is for you. Great staff, amazing, creative food and an experience you don't miss!!!
Thank you so much KristyR!
We enjoyed the meal, good service- including the alteration of the chef's plate (allergy). The group at the table next to us was overly loud and course. Pototoe Brava was excellent. Covid protocols was inconsistent- some hand spraying on entrance/others not
Brian: Thank you so much for your review. I just wanted to take this opportunity to note that we do have hand sanitizer available everywhere throughout the restaurant, as well as signs to encourage washing hands. We are so stringent with our cleaning policy that we have a blacklight that we use to check the restaurant. Despite this, there are still people that may slip by us, and all we can do is sanitize and wash our own hands! I am very sorry the table next to you was so boisterous.
I was very pleased with everything about Tapas. The service, ambience and food was incredible. Tapas exceeded all expectations - every taste was a flavourful adventure. The anticipation of what amazing creation was coming to our table next made for a memorable evening.
Great place for families and super convenient when staying at the hotels close by.
Hey Jimijam! I just wanted to clarify that 5 stars is good, and 1 star is bad! Thanks so much for joining us!
We had the outdoor patio tent. It was awesome!! Heaters to keep you warm, much quieter than inside, great lighting, and cozy blankets.
We did the tasting which was an amazing array of flavours, it was a great way to try several different dishes and some of the combinations were a surprising delight to the palate.
But.....it was quite pricy. I do understand some extra cost for the variety but the portions were not enough, we aren’t big eaters but we all had to snack at home within an hour of leaving the restaurant. For $65 per person we should not still be hungry after leaving.
Brenda; Thank you so much for your review! It means a lot to us to gain insight into our customer's experiences so that we can do better! This is a hard one because some people are full before dessert and some do enjoy a bit more, we would love to make you completely content and would gladly send another course if that is what you need, just let us know. It is our goal to make sure everyone has the best experience possible. We hope that you give us another chance!
Oh my goodness! What a meal at Tapas! Our waiter suggested the perfect number of dishes. The lamb ribs were incredible and the duck pops superlative. Salad and beet dishes were light and fresh, beautifully plated. There was no ice cream listed on the menu but when we inquired, we were brought a creamy rich caramelized pineapple dish to finish our meal.
Cannot recommend Tapas highly enough. Beautiful little quaint cottage hidden away on a side street in Canmore. Can’t wait to return.
Thank you so much wendyl!
Amazing food and great experience overall. Loved it!
Amazing flavours and great presentation. We had a Yak dish as part of the Chef’s menu and loved it. The server, Ollie, was great. We hope to eat there again when we are next in Canmore.
Fabulous meal - love the upstairs dining area. Best sticky date pudding in town.
We always visit Tapas when we’re in Canmore and we always order the tasting menu! 8 unique, inventive and delicious courses. The setting is romantic so it’s the perfect place for anniversary dinners and date nights. Always good service.
Okay so usually Tapas is my favourite go-to restaurant in Canmore. I’ve been here multiple times and it was great....
BUT. This time (for a surprise 30th birthday) saying it was awful would be an understatement. We ordered the chefs tasting menu and only enjoyed 1/8 dishes and it was the bread that we liked. It tasted like a completely different restaurant (maybe there was a chef change or new ownership?). I felt as if the chef did not try any of the menu items as they were bland, and one dish actually hurt our mouths because it was so acidic. The patae on a whole grain cracker was grey and disgusting. The kangaroo at the end was also awful (I thought that items were foraged from Alberta??). My partner and I were so disappointed as we were looking forward to a big celebration with tasty food- and we are not picky, but this was just bad. And very expensive. We ended up going to McDonald’s after because we were still hungry. We seriously thought we were getting punk’d by the items that were coming out.
Super disappointed, as this was such an amazing the last 5 times we went. Something has changed and it’s not for the better.
We had the chef’s tasting menu and it was mind blowing. Be prepared to have it be a few hour experience but well worth it!!!
