Whilst staying here, we had seen the restaurant on T.A & also in a variety of the local brochures described as a 'fine dining' restaurant so thought we'd give it a go. We booked a table with reception for the same day which was probably...More

Food quality and service poor. Restaurant is a huge rustic 'shed' Does not possess the ambiance to justify the price.

There is a restaurant on site that I think they consider “Fancy” because of the white table cloths, high prices and gourmet food titles. I have been there twice and have enjoyed my meal but the food has a tendency to be too salty and...More

Would like to send a shout out to the wonderful staff who helped my husband plan a surprise birthday dinner for us. The Caesar salad was perfect and the Chateau Briande cooked to perfection. And the service, impeccable!

Description
Welcome to our "cabin in the woods", Tekarra Restaurant, Jasper's fine dining experience since 1952. Chef Dale Nutt, and owners Mike and Cyndi Day, created a menu inspired by regional products such as Alberta bison and AAA beef, Wild Boar, free run chicken, and Arctic Char. Our appetizers feature small and shared plates and follow the same theme with meat and cheese boards, house smoked trout, and deviled eggs with bacon jam, to name but a few. Our service team are here to ensure you have an enjoyable, relaxing dining experience. Cheers!
