Chez Francois Restaurant has been a staple in Canmore for many years although this was my first visit. This restaurant is decorated in a white color with white table cloths; this gave it a very clean classy ambience. We were seated in a very quiet corner which worked well for us.

Very friendly efficient service. Greeted at the door and seated. At least 3 servers helped us during the meal and an owner or manager acknowledged us on the way out. Highly recommend.

We heard a lot of good things about this restaurant and were not disappointed. Lots of breakfast options. Very friendly staff. Busy place. Nice welcoming decor. Good value! Family friendly. Get the waffles along with your breakfast for sharing. I hear they have a good lunch/dinner.

If you love authentic French food, this is a great choice. We had the duck and it was as good as any I've even had. Desserts are delicious too. Loved the service. Very friendly and anxious to please..

Great place for breakfast. Consistently good food and service here, and reasonably priced. Coffee is pretty good too. Never had any issues here and would definitely come again.
