About the restaurant
An all day, everyday affair, this is a collaboration between the people
that brought you Red Ox Inn, Canteen and The Wired Cup.

Our mission is simple—build a community gathering place and
serve tasty food properly prepared from locally sourced ingredients,
pour great wine and cocktails, make great coffee and present it
with impeccable service.

The vibe is relaxing, the parking easy and the patio is simply perfect.
Happy and Olive is an Edmonton destination where neighbours,
friends, visitors, and families can eat well and connect.

A fun restaurant!! We enjoyed the snacks and shared plates for a birthday dinner. The shared family style plating worked well for our group. Our server was personable, knowledgeable, and was focused on making our evening special. We enjoyed all the dishes and all walked away with new favourites.

About the restaurant
The inspiration for Darling comes from our love for great food & wine enjoyed with friends. Creating an inviting and warm space welcome to all, we hope you’ll join us as a neighbour and leave as a friend.

Darling’s sharing plates menu created by our talented Head Chef, Lindsay James, focuses on local ingredient-driven, globally inspired dishes, showcasing the best of the season. You can always count on it being approachable and nourishing.

Darling’s natural wine list is always rotating to bring you thoughtful and exciting unique finds.

Beautiful little neighborhood gem by Mill Creek Ravine. Our server was wonderful, the ambience was perfect. We elected to do a tapas style sharing with our group. Loved the oysters with dill mignonette, brassica salad, and miso cod. The wine poached pear & cream was the least favourite dish of the evening. Look forward to trying out the brunch menu!

About the restaurant
Aalto’s inspiration runs deep. From Pyramid Lake’s shimmering waters to the sky-scraping peaks that tower above, we’ve translated our neighbouring natural wonders onto our menu. The result is what we call “lake-food” — a homegrown interpretation of seafood that spotlights Jasper’s finest regional flavours.

Great food and service, very close to our hotel so it was convenient. However, quite expensive for what you get.

Very enjoyable. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was impressive. The popcorn ceiling was a little distracting with everything else going on. The service was also really good.
