Canmore is often described as one of Canada’s most desirable places to live. It’s setting amongst stunning mountain peaks and its many outdoor activities are big reasons why. But an equally vibrant restaurant scene is an added bonus.
Spoiler alert: not in Canmore, but worth visiting if you’re in Banff. This is easily one of the most authentic Greek restos we’ve encountered in Canada. Go for the rabbit; stay for the moussaka. Thank us later.
Each of these restaurants holds a special place in our hearts. Often, it’s more than just the food itself. It’s the richness of culture, the wonderful people behind the scenes, the way a spot makes us feel at home.
