Intentionally “not town”, Tekarra Restaurant has been impressing guests from around the world with a fine dining experience since 1952. Owners Mike and Cyndi Day love how the authentic, rustic character of the pine cabin showcases Executive Chef Dale Nutt’s food-forward, yet classically-rooted, menu and bar.
Imagine walking your Moscow Mule out to the ridge to watch the Athabasca River roll by while Chef Dale cooks you his signature Rainbow Trout, or Bison Short Ribs for dinner. You eat and wildlife gaze at the same time. Later you tuck into dessert as the cabin lights glow warm, the stars peak through the pines, and the Rocky Mountains transform into a purple skyline as the sun sets. Your paper tablecloth is covered in crayon graffiti by everyone in your party – a take home memento of that perfect night you were out together. Your dining experience is complete.
We focus on quality at Tekarra Restaurant. We use protein that call Alberta home; elk, bison, and wild boar. Rainbow Trout and free range chicken and of course AAA Alberta beef round out our menu.
Chef Dale earned his Red Seal in 1995. At Tekarra his "fresh is best" philosophy has created classic house made sauces and jams, bourbon mustard, and smoked trout. His caring and committed culinary team will ensure you have a fantastic dining experience in our cabin in the woods.
