We went to Magpie and Stump for dinner. The restaurant was packed. It was taco Tuesday so tacos were on special. There were 4 of us dining. One person had the tacos and said they were good. Two others had fajitas and they said they were decorous. I had the fish tacos. The fish tacos barely had any fish in... More

One of the highlights of our annual pilgrimage to Banff and the one bar in downtown Banff that never fails to deliver. It doesn't matter if you bag yourself a table of pull up a stool at the bar , this is one of the best bars in Banff. And judging buy the line up at the door , not... More

It nice place to have quick bite or drink. Fast service quality of food is ok. If I visit Banff I will probably stop by there.

We had an enjoyable meal. I loved my fish tacos but the other dishes were so so. Pity the environment was great. $5 modelo 's were great!

Stopped in for lunch and found a wonderful place for Mexican cuisine. Hasn't changed since I was there 35 years ago which is part of its charm. Family friendly during mealtimes.

Great for casual dining. Fun relaxed atmosphere. Short walk from from Banff avenue. Close to free parking. Great taco special. Very affordable. Tasty mole chicken dish.

This place is famous for offering monkey nuts when waiting for dinner, but they ran out! How can a restaurant run out of monkey nuts when its reputation is build up in this? Lousy management. Waited forever for our meal, and dislike being served drinks out of jam jars. Wont return anytime soon.

Used to go to this restaurant often, found the past few times the quality of the food & Service has gone down hill, there are many more quality restaurants in Banff that are much better. Prices has also gone up ......says a lot about the direction of this restaurant.

I usually don't review unless its very good or very bad. I felt obligated to give a heads up. I don't know who owns or operates this place. Really, it wasn't good; like the fries under cooked and literally DRIPPING with oil. We had three different dishes, and they all kind of rated that way. There's a host of other... More
