There are so many different restaurants in Canada that serve delicious food but let's be honest here, the casual environments can become quite boring after a while. In order to have a unique dining experience, the atmosphere and food menu at the restaurant needs to be very unusual.
If you're travelling across Canada or happen to stop by one of these places, ditch the most popular restaurant you find on trip advisor and substitute it for an out of the norm eatery:
1. The Grizzly House // Banff, Alberta.
The Grizzly House in Banff offers an extraordinary menu which includes exotic and exquisite food. Challenge your taste buds by eating an alligator, a rattle snack or a shark. The restaurant presents a rustic setting, decorated with totem poles, a buffalo head, a wooden carved bear and several other unique lodgelike features.
2. Coombs Old Country Market // Coombs, British Columbia.
The Old Country Market is most definitely one of a kind eatery in Canada. Why do you ask? Well, it is "the home of the goats on the roof." Have a delicious meal and enjoy the company of goats while they munch on grass at the top of a Norweigian-style log house.
3. Oasis Surf // Montreal,Quebec.
