FOR A TASTE OF BORDEAUX IN THE BOW VALLEY, GO TO MARKET

Anthony et Valerie au restaurant.jpg

For a true taste of French cuisine, The Market Bistro at Three Sisters is one Canmore's most impressive hidden gems—and fantastic food is just the beginning at this local "home away from home".

Here, Bordeaux-born Anthony Rabot and Quebec-born Valerie Trudel—husband-and-wife owners of the restaurant—are thrilled not only to share their home-style French delights, but also to share the inspiration behind them.

What's more, it's not unusual to see Anthony stepping out of the kitchen (or Luigi, or Desirea, or Val, or whoever is working that day!) to greet customers with a hug or a warm handshake.

Everything is home-made. Regulars tell us it just feels like home here—and that’s why so many visit us weekly when they don’t feel like cooking! Guests come to us not only to eat, but to spend time with us. We are friends, family, neighbors.
— Valerie Trudel, Co-Owner, The Market Bistro at Three Sisters

Home-Made Speciality Products & On-Site Wine Store? Oui!

A fine example of their signature wholesome style is The Market Bistro's home-made pates and pickled items, which make great local gifts that are sure to impress. Each product also makes for an effortless appetizer when hosting friends or family at home.

Wine-lovers will also enjoy the unique experience of picking up their wine at the restaurant's on-site liquor store, UnWined, after ordering their meal at The Market Bistro.

All wines at the UnWined store are available at The Market Bistro—making it the biggest wine list at a Canmore restaurant. What's more, they only charge a $15 corkage fee—making it the most affordable wine list in Canmore, too, Val says: "St-Emilion, Barolo, Chateau neuf-du-Pape, all under $75!" Valerie is always pleased to recommend the best pairings.

Special Set-Price Dinner Menu at Canmore Uncorked 2018

Here's what you can look forward to on the menu—the only difficulty is making your selection for each course!

Anthony’s bouillabaisse is very popular—it won him the Best Chef of the Festival Award at Uncorked 2017! The best part of the dish is the rouille: a mayonnaise made of olive oil, garlic, saffron, and cayenne pepper on grilled slices of bread, which you dip into the broth.
