At Banff’s most bustling downtown corner is this upscale, award-winning steakhouse and showcase for Canadian cuisine, a favourite for meals from late breakfasts to intimate dinners. The Maple Leaf’s Canadian character is evident in its menu that features fresh Ocean Wise certified fish from BC, and Alberta beef and bison.

Atmosphere & Accolades

The Maple Leaf’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 serves classic and creative cocktails.
