Eat on Where Rockies Onlin

People come from around the world for a dining experience amidst the beauty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Imagine you are enjoying the view in Banff with some of the most inspired dishes and beverages in the national park. These two bistros are famous for having the best Banff restaurant views.

Sky Bistro, perched atop Sulphur Mountain, is accessible via the Banff Gondola or by hike. Once at the top,  you can enjoy  Canadian cuisine, made with locally sourced ingredients, and stunning panoramic, 360o views of the mountains made. Go in the spring or fall to see the mountains made all the more majestic with a dusting of snow.

If you don’t like heights, head down to the Juniper Hotel and the Juniper Bistro. Located at the foot of Mount Norquay, just a couple minutes from the ski hill, Juniper Bistro was voted “Best in the Bow" by Banff locals for having the best mountain views. They also won the categories of “best bartender” and “most romantic.” The views are quite impressive at Juniper, and they include a crystal-clear mountain view of the iconic Mount Rundle and its accompanying ranges.
