The food here is fabulous! We had the Almost Famous dry ribs and the Baja Shrimp for starters. They were wonderful. Mains were also great - husband had a steak and I had the Braised Elk Gnocchi. Our son had the Thai Curry Bowl and our daughter had a "kids" flatbread. All were excellent. Had no room for dessert. Though... More

A friend organized a dinner for 8 at Saltlik while we were on holidays in Banff. Nice atmosphere and the menu looked great. I ordered a steak and asked the waiter if the descriptions on how they cook a rare steak was accurate. He confirmed so I ordered a rare steak (Menu says: Rare: deep red throughout). When my steak...

We usually eat at this restaurant every time we go to Banff and each experience is different. This time was good. I ordered steak which was cooked exactly how I wanted and my husband had ribs which were tasty as well. Scallop potatoes on a good day are delicious as well as the mac and cheese with mushrooms. The service... More

All I wanted on my first night in Banff was a juicy Alberta steak. Saltlik came highly recommended but when the highlight of your meal was the baked potato its not a good sign. My steak was meh, and the other 3 meals in our party ranged from different to good but overpriced. I just don't like going to a... More

Ordered burgers, which turned out to be great and have been completely satisfied with the quality of the service. Four burgers and four non-alcoholic drinks came to about CAD 120, though. This plus the tip was a bit steep in my opinon

The place is really well designed and spacious, and our waitress was very friendly and welcoming. The food was just mixed, we had a great burger and then just the rest was too deep fried and not as advertised. Could be great.

Although we had a good meal and a very nice server the... More

Visited several times during ski trip, great food with specials, you can sit in the bar or upstairs in a more formal setting. Would recommend. Only a short walk from Banff Avenue. The hostess that greeted us this evening (4.10) on entering the restaurant was the most miserable uninterested I have ever encountered, arms folded, hands in pockets, was like... More

Atmosphere was charming and that evening a lot of couples dining having romantic evenings. Food was very tasty and definitely large portions as each side dish was split amongst the three of us. Large portions of meat which is why we chose this place to get our protein intake.
