You won't be disappointed with any of the dishes here. I wish I knew about this place sooner because it would have saved me from some bad meals!

The food was awesome, something different rather than the same old same old burgers, large portions, great service and everything tasted great. The kids were won over by the server who handed them a handful of candies before departing!

The restaurant was busy, staff was exceptionally attentive, friendly and gave a real European feeling with their wonderful accents and menu advice. The food was very good and in large enough portions that I unfortunately had to leave some on my plate.... More

Great atmosphere, made special by attentive staff. Our host William was so friendly, attentive and made the evening so much more special.

Good quality ingredients used in imaginative ways. Good staff, nice atmosphere. Interesting wine list. Very good, maybe the best of Banff and not a bad value either.

We popped into this place without looking at reviews and were vey pleased with quality of food. There were adequate gluten free options for my GF daughter. I had the lamb slouvaki, medium rare, pita and it was excellent. Try this place and my guess is that you will be happy with it
