“Authentic Greek food in the heart of the Canadian Rockies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

I spend much of my summer in Greece and love Greek food. Barpa Bill's Greek takeaway in the heart of the Canadian Rockies offers authentic and very good quality Greek dishes such as pitta souvlaki (chicken or lamb) and spanakopita (Spinach and feta pie) as well as Canadian poutine and fish and chips. This small highstool-and-shelf eating place is not for dining out but the welcome is typically warm and Greek and a good opportunity to flex your language skills with the friendly Canadian-Greek owners. For fast food it's really great!

“front desk worker loves it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Best Greek food in town only for take-out but really decent food worth looking for if you want some options besides pizza/burger in Banff.

“Great food out of a hole in the wall.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

This is a tiny place; few seats at the counter and a couple of tiny tables. But the food is great and a bargin for Banff. My wife and I had lunch there: she had the calamari and I had a lamb gyro. Both were excellent. One thing to keep in mind is they are cash only.
