Description: Consistently voted one of the most Romantic Restaurants in the Canadian Rockies, we are tucked off Main Street Canmore in a charming character house that was once a Miners home. Tapas offers a lively fusion of Spanish and Mediterranean flavours created by our kitchen team with mostly organic and locally sourced ingredients. We have designed a menu of specialty dishes that are prepared to order from the freshest farm to table ingredients available. All stocks, sauces and desserts are made by our Chef Chris in house. Our menu offers gluten free and vegetarian options. Share several plates among friends in the intimate dining room with Spanish style murals and high back leather chairs. We also have an eclectic attic with slanted ceilings and low windows which is great for small parties. Don’t forget to visit us in the summer where you can enjoy tapas on our Mediterranean- style deck with lovely al fresco ambiance. Want to bring your own wine? We offer a $25 per bottle corkage fee as

Great wine and waiters.
We went for two starter dishes to share the stuffed dates were heaven in the mouth.
Chorizo and figs were Devine.
We then went for charcuterie option that again was excellent. Each course was well described by the excellent staff.
Though we did not need it we finished with the peanut mouse and salted caramel. Wow

So it really was the meal that kept on giving. If you are in Canmore this is a must.
This was with out a doubt the best meal of our trip.
I would also say the best Tapas we have had and we have been to Spain on numerous occasions.

We very much enjoyed our dinner, with dishes that ranged from very good to exceptional. Some of the flavor combinations were inspired. This was the most memorable meal that we had in the Lake Banff area.

We had been here once before but were unsure how to order. How much was too much? We ended up ordering too little and left hungry, however, the food was very good. We decided to try again and we were offered the Chef Selection as an alternative to allow us to see how many dishes would be enough! The Chef’s Special consisted of seven dishes for two which were served at the chefs discretion. He chose the dishes. We had some very good food and it was delicious.

We would probably select our own dishes next time, because we love meat and only had one prawn each and two or three thin slices of steak in the seven dishes. Most were vegetable dishes. However, it was very tasty, and we left satisfied. We would go again, but would wait a while to return. Service was excellent.

This was our third visit here, but the first this year. Previous times it’s been fantastic and friendly, however this time we found the service was unfriendly and unhelpful, although the food, when it came was good. Our children had ordered the mussels and these were brought after all the other food (which they didn’t want) was eaten. We had explained that the mussels were for our children and requested could they come quickly, but our waitress basically said they will come when they come! Unfortunately after the long wait, both kids were really too tired to eat. Really disappointing as we were so excited to return here. Won’t be rushing back.

Hi Janey,

Thank you for your review and this is not normal for us in terms of service. If you could email me directly at james@tapascanmore.ca so I can review and respond in an appropriate format to see if we can rectify our service failure. The servers comments are not proper and I am sorry to hear this.

We are sorry to hear about this and as a parent I do understand. Tapas is an adult orientated restaurant and we do our best to accommodate children in terms of timing but on busy nights some items will take longer. To others reading this review we recommend ordering your child's food fist and then doing the regular order.

Sincerely,

James Kendal
