15 of the Best Banff Restaurants for 2021
"This is one of the fancier restaurants in town and it does not disappoint. It’s been years since we’ve made it back here but I still remember the maple-glazed salmon and the super creamy mashed potatoes. If you’re looking for an upscale restaurant in the heart of Banff, this is one of the top options."

15 Banff Restaurants For Your Canadian Rockies Trip
"The Maple Leaf is one of Banff’s high end restaurants, and is incredibly popular due to it serving fully Canadian cuisine. Primarily working with steak and seafood, the food is beautiful, as is the restaurant itself. Canadian oysters, Alberta beef and wild salmon, every dish just screams eh!"

Banff Vegan Restaurants – Top Picks Chosen by a Local | Nomadic Vegan
"It can be incredibly annoying at times when a restaurant offers only one or two vegan options that you’re stuck with and probably wouldn’t usually choose. We’ve all been there, gazing at the menu trying to drum up excitement over the third mushroom burger you’ve eaten this week. Luckily, Parks Distillery and Earls Kitchen + Bar both offer kick-ass plant-based menus."

"Maybe because everyone is fueling up for a big day in the mountains, morning meal spots abound and many do it really right. Brunos Bar and Grill is one such place that serves a killer breakfast and mounds of it at a reasonable price. Veggie options are available yet the menu is definitely pig heavy."

"Located inside Irwin’s Mountain Inn Hotel, this restaurant serves up food with a Mexican and Spanish influence. In addition to mains, they also serve tapas, which are smaller plates that enable you to try a variety of foods. Tapas are quite popular in Spain and two options we tried during our visit was the Sauza Cream Prawns, which are sauteed in a tequila cream sauce, as well as the Seafood Ceviche, which includes Salmon, Prawns, and Scallops marinated in lime juice, tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro and onions."

The Best Breakfast in Banff - Where The Locals Go
"El Toro has been a feature in Banff for over 40 years, and features Canadian cuisine with a spanish/latino twist. Breakfasts cost between 7 and 15 bucks and features a very egg heavy menu; eggs benedicts, omelettes, scrambles, breakfast burritos etc. It’s wholesome food that’s worth checking out if Banff is busy and you’re looking for a breakfast spot in a pinch or you’re getting an early start."
