Had dinner on the patio one evening and minus the mosquitoes the food was delicious and waitresses all very pleasant and helpful. Would surely go back the next time we are in Banff.

I love their wood stove pizza as they have such great flavour. Always order to much and have to take dog bag home. Sadly it's omly open for about three months and one in Calgary just doesn;t have the same feel.
