The food was great ! Did you ever taste prawns, grilled with feta and sweet onions, all of them swimming in a generous portion of excellent brandy and ending by being "flambee" and the flames drowned in lemon juice squeezed directly from a zesty lemon ? If you want to feel like heaven, step into the Balkan Restaurant (Greek) in... More

The food is good and the roast lamb was excellent but I found that the Souvlaki (or swords as they call it) were a little overdone and so was the salmon. The baklava cheese cake was unusual and tasty

We had a pita wrap, White beans soup and spinakoppita. All of the items were good and tasted authentic. The service was ok. Godd choice for vegetarians. Sit at a table overlooking the street and you can watch the world gobyas you eat. Large wine selection and greek liqour on offer.

The service we received here was excellent - very attentive and friendly. The food was good, but nothing to rave about.

We'd been roughing it out West in the middle of a 3 week road trip, not eating that great, trying to keep costs down... and had just completed a challenging and spectacular hike earlier in the day so were famished. We were in the mood for something different other than burgers, etc and kind of fell upon this great Greek... More

We had a really tasty souvlaki here which tasted very fresh and flavoursome. Our only gripe was that the waiter got our order muddled up, however the food we got given was delicious so it kept us happy.

11 of us went there for dinner. The food was OUTSTANDING. The staff was lovely and there was even some traditional Greek entertainment - -a Belly Dancer.

We wait for 1 hour to get our mains. So we got full by water. The food wasn't that good it was overrated. Otherwise the place is nice but the serving is late .

Stylish eatery with very friendly and helpful staff. We especially enjoyed the Halloumi Salad. Slightly expensive but most everything in Banff will be a bit pricey. Memorable meal downtown - highly reccommmended.

We go to this restaurant every time we visit Banff. The food is excellent and the service is top notch. The manager was willing to give the eight of us a table at 06:00 even though he was fully booked at 08:00. We just have to complete the meal before his booking came in. The roast lamb is probably the... More
