  • Hours

Located on Banff’s most bustling downtown corner, this award-winning, upscale steakhouse is a favourite for meals that range from late breakfasts to intimate dinners. The Maple Leaf’s Canadian-inspired character is reflected in its menu that features fresh fish from BC, and Alberta beef and game.

Atmosphere & Accolades

Chef Chris MacDougall’s regional Canadian dishes pair beautifully with this multi-level restaurant‘s wood lodge-like décor. Accents include rock fireplaces, a wall of wines, private dining sections (popular for events), and downtown and mountain views. The Maple Leaf is a Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence recipient, and the street level lounge has happy hour daily from 3 to 5 pm.
