Canmore Restaurants

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.

Special Mention

The Balkan

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.

Our Favourites

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.

Quatro Asian Bistro, Canmore

Quatro Asian Bistro

Quattro is one of our favourite Canmore restaurants. The friendly folks here serve up high quality, delicious Filipino fusion cuisine in a casual atmosphere. Great food; great prices; great people. What’s not to like?

Tavern 1883

Great pub food and drink in the heart of downtown. Huge outdoor patio, friendly staff and live music events all summer long make this a must-visit whenever we’re in Canmore.

Other Great Spots

We have eaten at each of these places, and genuinely loved our experience! 

Located in the historic Georgetown Inn, this pub is justifiably famous for its “hiker/climber fuel” breakfasts and pub grub. While you’re there check out the hiking & climbing gear and photos that adorn the walls throughout the pub.


Operated by Blake, this “Bustaurant” (don’t call it a Food Truck!) is located in the heart of downtown. Come for the outstanding fusion tacos (they play well with Korean flavours), but other hot grill options are available. Great setting and staff; all round good vibes.
burrata; zhoug; pine nuts; cherry tomatoes. Crazy Weed in Canmore


Arguably Canmore’s best fine dining experience, Crazyweed (no, not *that* weed!) offers an imaginative menu in a refined yet relaxed atmosphere. Great cocktails and extensive wine list too!

Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co.

The name says it all – well, almost. Great flatbreads for sure, but also delicious pizza, a wide selection of craft beer, cider and wine. All in a high energy, fast paced space. Very popular, so line ups happen – but worth the wait.

Where The Buffalo Roam

Relaxed, casual resto and bar with a nice small patio on the Main Street. Specializing in quality cocktails inspired by local spirits, and great draft beer. And the food’s well worth the visit (try the fish & chips!).
Special Mention

Sky Bistro

Banff Option: Perched atop the famous Sulphur Mountain, Sky Bistro is a fine dining restaurant with a world class view of the Canadian Rockies.  


Because coffee is life.


A funky, spunky local coffee shop serving up great in-house coffee, sandwiches, sweet treats and boozy drinks. Also packaged coffee for the Beamer’s taste at home. A must-visit while in Canmore.
Special Mention

Stock Food and Drink

A budget-friendly, casual resto just off the main lobby of the Banff Fairmont Hotel. This busy spot serves up some pretty yummy, simple fare; it was our “go-to” whenever we attended conferences there.
