We love the Balkan, and have been here many times for lunch and for dinner. This time around, we had lunch and it was delicious as usual. We enjoyed the sandwich special of the day and Gyros with Greek Fries. There is a LOT of food when you order, so come hungry! Service is always very good, and if you... More

My wife and I spent a few days in Banff in late October. Reviewing TripAdvisor recommendations, we noted that the Balkan Restaurant received some very good ratings, so we decided to try it out. It was a quiet night in Banff, off-season i guess, but the restaurant was busy. That is a good sign. Overall our meal was very good.... More

Tried The Balkan on a recommendation from a concierge at our hotel. We ordered from the "Locals Menu" which offered pretty good value. The Calamari was beautiful and tender. We followed up with the Arni Psito a slow cooked lamb shank, very tasty. Finished off with some baklava which was also good. The cost was $25 per head plus a... More

We dined here during the Bon Appetit festival in Banff. Our only mistake was that we should have ordered half the amount of food as the portions are huge! We started with the calamari and the zucchini fritters. Both were very good - the calamari was a bit on the oily side for my liking, but the flavour was fantastic.... More

The first fatty goat ever in my life, happened upon me with goat stew at the Balkan restaurant in Balkan. During the culinary festival, they added something from home and I hope it'll stay there. Not wanting to make a fuss, as it was supposed to be a fun dinner, I ate and suffered the fatty taste. Sadly , these... More

This was my first stop after a tiresome journey from the southeast U.S. I had planned on a dinner here but since it was mid-afternoon and right next to my hotel it was the obvious choice for a late lunch. As it turned out, I arrived just as the kitchen was closing for lunch, but they held it open for... More
