Winner

Fuji Ramen and Sushi

Between the colourful decor and varied menu, Fuji Ramen and Sushi offers an inviting place to gather for Japanese cuisine. At this family-owned restaurant, ramen and sushi are the go-to orders, but the restaurant also has dishes like karaage, takoyaki and tempura that are equally noteworthy. At lunchtime, Fuji also offers bento boxes for adults and kids that include a little bit of everything for a reasonable price.

Runners-up

Chairman’s Steakhouse

Situated on Lake Mahogany, Chairman’s Steakhouse offers beautiful views of the Mahogany neighbourhood and the water — in the summer, the lakeside patio is a particularly great place to dine. The restaurant is inspired by the glitz of the Old Hollywood era and offers its own spin on a classic steakhouse menu with half racks of Alberta lamb, steaks like the Brant Lake Wagyu tomahawk chop, chicken fried oysters Rockefeller and more.

Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant

Located in a historic house with a picturesque wrap-around veranda in Fish Creek Provincial Park, Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant offers a memorable dining experience. The menu, which focuses on Canadian cuisine, includes masterfully cooked game meats and local produce. Guests can also enjoy special weekend offerings like afternoon tea at the restaurant or head to the nearby Annie’s Cafe (open in the spring) for ice cream after their meal.
