Lovely restaurant, helpful, friendly staff, delicious food. We had the trout and salmon served with fresh vegetables and baked potatoes - both were excellent

We were here for breakfast and food was great. Close to the downtown core and a short walk to the main strip. Will definitely go back when in Banff.

I visited this restaurant twice over the Easter long weekend. On Friday night four of us went upstairs to the bar to watch the hockey game. Seating was pretty limited, but we were able to find a table for two with a spare two seats right next to us at the bar. If food could be ordered from the bar,... More

Melissa's isn't your standard chain restaurant offering. We were tired of the "been there, done that" of the competition and decided to give Melissa's a try on a recent trip to Banff. Although the outside projects a bit of a Bavarian vibe, Melissa's has more of a rustic log cabin atmosphere on the inside, where it counts. The staff was... More

My husband and I had breakfast here our last day in Banff. As it was the Monday after spring break it was quiet. The food came out quickly and was a good amount. Filling and satisfying. Good staff. Would go again

We have been to this restaurant in the past and always really enjoyed it. However, this time we were disappointed, the menu seemed more limited and there was no fresh bread brought to our table. Also, the only ice cream option for the kids was vanilla. Note: the restaurant has no wifi.

We arrived with a hungry 2 yr old and the staff quickly got us settled and then asked if they could get something for the child, recognizing that her hunger was not going to wait. We then ordered Swiss apple pancakes. Outstanding! I have never had a pancake this good. Staff continued to be attentive and made sure that we... More

We walked in with a party of 10, the waitress had us seated in less than 5 minutes! Great service! The food was very good, and the kids loved the chocolate chip pancakes! Will definitely have to come back to try the dinner menu!!

We came here for breakfast as it was convenient for our hotel The service was slow which was frustrating as you want to just have breakfast and get on with the day. The food was not refined and really quite bland albeit plentiful I did not enjoy the experience and would avoid this restaurant in future
