The food was good, but we didn't like where we were seated. We'd booked in advance, but were put right at the back of the restaurant, which was away from the 'buzz', We thought this was because a large party was coming in, but this didn't happen, and by the time we realised this, we were well into our meal....

We arrived at 5:00pm with reservations. Our meal orders were taken relatively quickly. By 5:20pm the waitress returned to say that they had just run out of the moussaka and instead of returning with the menu, she suggested the vegetarian moussaka or the eggplant appetizer instead. With moussaka being such a staple of Greek food, running out of such an... More

After reading a review on TripAdvisor, we decided to try this restaurant on our recent visit to Banff. We were not disappointed! The food and service were excellent. I would highly recommend the Balkan Restaurant on your next trip to the mountains.

Early dinner so few in restaurant. Ordered the spaghetti limonata and it was fabulous. Gorgeous citrus flavour but not overpowering on spaghetti and fresh vegetables. A welcome change from the usual vegetarian food offered elsewhere. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I had the Mediterranean Salad with shrimp. It was very good, my only complaint is they only served 4 small shrimp. Otherwise I would of given a 5. My wife had the same Salad but had chicken instead, which was adequate in serving size.

My partner and I enjoyed a pleasant meal here. The meals were generous, so much so we didn't quite finish. The zuchini fritters as an entree where excellent. Our Australian waiter Geoff enhanced the hospitality and made the evening most enjoyable. Worth a visit.

We had lunch at this restaurant on a quiet Thursday in the off season. Surroundings are comfortable and nicely done. Service was friendly and efficient. Good menu with selection of Greek and Canadian dishes. Our souvlaki and donair were tasty. Greek salads were mainly lettuce filler so could have been better. Lunch for 4 was under $60 without alcohol. Reasonable... More

My wife and I went here for lunch on our recent trip to Banff. We both thought it was good enough to warrant a return trip for dinner the next night. Everything we ate was great but the Fried Feta Balls were what brought us back for dinner. They were amazing. I would encourage you to look over the menu... More
