Opa! Amazing Greek Cuisine.

This restaurant had the best Greek food we had while at Banff. Plentiful, delicious, appetizing. Even sharing meals and still left with full bellies. If you are craving Greek food, this is the place to go!

This restaurant is excellent if you want to be entertained and wow your taste buds. The Something Feta Balls are the bomb because when you bite in them all you can taste is warm feta cheese. Amazing! My friends and I decided to share the seafood platter and it was awesome too. When you see the plate it looks like... More

Can't complain about the food or wine, but a little on the pricey side (the wine for sure is marked up a little too much). I would have liked to see a restaurant with a regional themed name, have a menu that shows that, rather than focussing on mostly Greek food.

This is one of the best Greek restaurants I've eaten in Food was good and service was fine We had to eat in the bar due to lack of reservation but that was fine But would recommend calling for a reservation

On holiday from Ireland, we had the most enjoyable time having dinner at the Balkan Greek Restaurant in Banff. The atmosphere was terrific, the food tasty and Lucas our server made sure that it would be an experience to remember. Of all the restaurants we visited, this is the one we'll remember for a long time.

Lively restaurant with good food. Had the grilled lemon garlic lamb chops with feta sauce, rice pilaf and roasted potato wedges. Lamb chops were cooked perfectly, really tasty feta sauce. Service was s bit slow but may have been because of the party of 16 ahead us. Waitress was friendly and knowledgeable about menu and drinks.

Hungry and having a hard time deciding where to eat in Banff, we came across Balkan. It looked busy and the lunch menu was interesting. We had their lunch special which was pulled lamb in pita bread with tomatoes, onions, artichoke hearts and tzatiki sauce. It came with a bowl of soup and a Greek salad. A hearty meal and... More

Good food - my souvlaki was a little overdone but everyone in our party enjoyed their authentic Greek experience. A little pricey especially with kids.

This restaurant is the best Greek restaurant in Banff: the server was very pleasant, attentive, prompt and knowledgeable. The management handles a very large and busy establishment very well. The atmosphere is upbeat the decoration matching. It is also the only Greek restaurant in the neighbourhood so it is the worst for food: Unless you enjoy thoroughly salty dishes. Why... More
