Maclab Bistro Menu

Maclab Bistro is now open!

Come visit us for dine-in service and enjoy your delicious meal looking out over the Bourgeau Range, or use our takeaway service. Ask our servers about our weekly wine specials.

Maclab Bistro will be closed on September 30th for National Truth & Reconciliation Day.

With the exception of a few small pre-packaged condiments, ALL of the takeout containers, cups, cutlery, napkins, and packaging is completely compostable or recyclable. Our team has worked hard to ensure that we maintain our commitment to the Banff Zero Waste Trail.

Banff Centre is participating in the Government of Alberta’s Restrictions Exemption Program, guests will be asked for proof of vaccination, medical exemption, or a privately-paid negative PCR or rapid test within 72 hours prior to your visit and government-issued ID (physical copy). Guests staying on campus will be able to use their faculty/artist card or bedroom key as they will have been pre-screened upon check-in at the Professional Development Centre.
