Tooloulous Crawfish Bowl by Damian Lamartine

  • Overview
  • Prices
  • Hours

Chef/owner Big Steve expertly prepares “a little Louisiana, a little Acadiana, a little Canadiana” at this popular restaurant situated a half block off main street. Pro tip: arrive early if Banff is busy to avoid the line up. Cajun Creole meets a classic Rocky Mountain kitchen with homestyle comfort food. At Tooloulou’s, everything is made in-house for an authentic taste of the south with a subtle touch of the north.

Tooloulou’s features expansive breakfast, lunch and dinner menus with gluten-friendly and kids choices. Want to spice up your meal? Pick from 100 sauces on the Hot Shotz shelf. Tooloulou’s offers merch, catering, and bookings of their 50-seat restaurant for functions.


The warm brick and wood décor at this small restaurant is jazzed up with mardi gras masks, metal music instrument sculptures and a huge crayfish that hangs from the ceiling. There is a colourful bar with high seats and a small sidewalk patio.
