How Much Should I Tip?

Tipping
Tipping is expected practice in Canada, although it is up to your discretion to leave anywhere between 15-25%. If you are in a large group a tip will often be automatically added to your bill.

Taxes
In Alberta, 5% GST tax is added onto all restaurant bills.

Reservations
If you’re in Banff during peak season or during the holidays, reservations are highly recommended. Banff restaurants can be extremely busy and getting a table in your first choice restaurant could be completely unpredictable without a reservation. Don’t be disappointed, reserve your table!

Dress Code
Almost anything goes in Banff  as it’s generally considered to be fairly casual. Generally speaking during the holidays people do tend to get dressed up, having said that it’s certainly not New York and Gore-Tex is usually de rigueur in most establishments.
