Truly Sustainable & Alberta

I went to the River Cafe for lunch. The look and feel on the island at any time of the year is incredible. You can never go wrong when you support Alberta farmers and you eat organic or natural. They truly do it right. Thanks for being there! Keep doing what you do and hopefully over time Calgary will have a sustainable community.

If you have one meal in Calgary, it should be here. You might have a slightly better meal at, say, Mercato, but nothing touches the River Café's combo of cuisine and location. To reach the aptly named River Café, it takes a short walk through the Eau Claire Market area, then over the footbridge to pretty Prince's Island Park. On a lovely summer evening, the walk is a plus, as are the... more

River Café is my go-to place when I want to take someone to a nice meal. Whether it's family and friends or a business meeting it always gets a great response due to it's friendly atmosphere, great food, and awesome location. The food is fantastic. I don't think I've ever had something that I thought was less than mind-blowingly amazing. Would give 6 stars.

The perfect blend of river city view, wonderful food and a courteous and professional staff. We were fortunate to be out on the patio on a perfect summer evening, but they do have plenty of propane heaters and the view is very nice. Nice casual dress is appropriate, although a formal dinner would work here too. Pricey, but the fresh and creative menu is certainly worth the cost. Park or walk... more

As for me,the price is a little high. However, when I eat dinner was around by river, trees, sunshine and birds,etc. I believe that is fantastic, and I love it suddenly. Seasonal menu is a great method to attract customers. It is worth eating.

Brunch was disappointing. Ambience is nice, but service was lacklustre at best;the servers did not seem to want to be there. Menu item described as as a "frittata", little more than scrambled eggs. Somewhat overpriced.

River Cafe, the small, tranquil restaurant is located in a refurbished building among the trees, lawns and wildlife of Prince's Island Park. Surrounded by the Bow River, the setting alone is enough to draw you to its charms. But that isn't all this hot spot has to offer; it features one of the best menus in the city, with wood-fired regional cuisine offering specialties such as Noble Farms Duck... more
