Such a treat

This restaurant was recommended by the front desk staff at our hotel and I'm so glad we went! In my opinion, it's a little higher than $$ but either way it's well worth it and there's tons of food.

Very good restaurant with authentic Greek food and the recommendation to try the Lamb shank was spot-on, also we shared a large meatball starter. Nice restaurant and highly recommended.

We found this restaurant online and decided to give it a try while we visited Banff over the Memorial weekend. We ordered their greek salad, the seafood linguine, and the lamb dishes. Foods were really really tasty, dishes were in a good size, and prices were in a reasonable range. We enjoyed our time there very much!

enjoyed the starters from the meatballs in sauce , the aubergine and the spinach pastry, mains were lamb shank, chicken salad and pork wrap, the lamb shank was good but way over priced so was the wine although all were good but far too expensive in my opinion.....

At last. A restaurant which claims to serve authentic Greek food, which actually does. Took us back to the many happy holidays we have had in Greece and the superb cuisine of that Country. Built-in personality and generosity; an aroma and taste which genuinely makes you exclaim as you tuck into it. Great for sharing. Good honest food, served in... More

This was a really nice experience. Went for lunch and dinner. Potato wedges at lunch were amazing. The Gyro was ok. Dinner on the other hand was very good. If you're a meat eater then don't even bother looking at the menu. Order the Lamb Shank and you're welcome! Saganaki was also good. Great service as well

We are vegetarian and after a week of living on pizzas and croissants in Canada, we were thrilled to find a mediterranean place. Every dish we had was good. And the service exceptional.

Beautiful decor, friendly, helpful service, delicious food, and so many dishes to sample! Service was fast without feeling rushed, and the prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food.

We loved our dinner!! I had Spaghetti Lemonata and it was wonderful. All five of us all had different entrees and everyone raved about their food. One person in our group had never had Greek food before and after finishing her vegetarian mousaka declared that Greek food is now her favorite food of all! The service was good and the... More
