Beautiful food, fantastic service. The gentleman who saw us to our table was very polite and welcoming, and Olly our waiter was brilliant. Compliments to the chef, my partner and I shared the chef’s recommendation, out of this world!

Amazing food at this restaurant - had a great couple of cocktails, a fine bottle of wine. Marcona Almonds drizzled in truffle oil. To die for. Mushrooms on toast so so tasty, Potatoes Brava, figs stuffed with blue cheese. Have never tasted such tasty figs..... Very very good service and the food was outstanding we will return..... Patio is great but was closed when we went as it was a bit rainy off and on....

We really enjoyed all the unique dishes and every dish was tasty.
There were 4 of us and we ordered 2 chef specials and it was just the perfect amount of food and should we have needed another dish or two it could be ordered.

An absolutely amazing experience at this restaurant.

The food, the people, the ambiance and did I mention the food? ... My wife and I did not know what to expect, but we read reviews and they were right, this is the place to experience authenticity, delicious food as well as a smooth and romantic ambiance.

The chef platter was incredibly well crafted and the sangria will set the bar too high for any other.
We can't stop telling everyone about our experience at Tapas.

Excellent high quality tapas with very creative twists. Chef’s selection dinner is superb. Beautiful rustic ambiance. To my taste, it is at the level of respected San Francisco restaurants.

The food was exceptional but the service was fairly poor. My server did not explain any of the food items to me but instead rushed me to order and finish. I believe it was because I had two children with me. I didn’t even get to take a look at the menu before she asked me what I wanted and said I had to order all at once, even though it’s a tapas restaurant. I was very upset with the way I was treated. She made me feel very unwelcome and like I was a burden even though my children were very well behaved. The couple next to me also had a problem with her and spoke to her about theire experience with her. Something I wish I would have done. However the host and the food made my experience somewhat pleasant. If I do go back I would ask for a different server if I had her again.

Anytime we are in Canmore we go to Tapas. It is a must for anyone who wants good food, and a good evening. Food changes a little everytime we are there, but it's always good. Service is good but can be crowded at times, due to it being a small space.

Tapas was an awesome experience. Our server, Ollie, was knowledgeable, polite and not overbearing. I had made the reservation for my birthday dinner, and they made the effort to wish me well on my day and offer a nice patio table to us. This place is not on main Street and is a hidden gem, so the patio was quiet and wonderful.
We managed to share 8 dishes and 3 desserts between 4 of us and that was plenty to leave us satisfied.
The cocktail menu is also exceptional with local spirits and ecclectic beer.
I would highly recommend making this a stop on your next trip to the mountains!

Out for a girls' weekend and visited this great little gem in the midst of the Rockies. Great view on the deck, and the food was EXCELLENT! Good value, too... we had several dishes, a couple of bottles of wine and dessert, and the bill was very reasonable. Will return!

Always fabulous and always packed, patio was a great option on a beautiful night in Canmore. Four items will fill you up nicely. Everything on the menu is delicious , we have tried literally every item. Great wine list and live Spanish guitar. Don’t miss this place.

GLUTEN FREE OPTIONS ARE NOT GLUTEN FREE After explaining celiac concerns with the staff they said that they could accommodate. My gluten tester showed that the "gluten free" dishes did contain gluten. When I showed the staff they did nothing. Did not apologize. We sent my food back and I sat and watched my friend eat. Server avoided us the rest of the night. No one else ever came out to speak to us or apologize. Am appalled at their reaction. it is fine if you cannot accommodate Celiac's, but then be honest about it - and more importantly apologize when you mess up. People can become seriously seriously ill. It is not just a "sore tummy". This is an autoimmune disease that can seriously affect people's health. Please get some education for your staff and kitchen.

Amazing food , but noise level was considerable . The only reservation we could get was high top for 2 in the tiny bar area . There was a large party at the other end who were really loud . We received our Caesar salads right away but waited an hour for next tapa . Despite the long wait I still loved it & would return . Gnocchi was great & scallops also .

It never happened as they called me around 4pm to say they had a ‘maintenance’ problem and were not opening that evening.
Imagine trying to get new reservations at that time on Mother’s Day!!
