“Great food but not so clean restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Yes we like the food , I'm not so impressed with dinning room, too small for my opinion, tables is to close to each other, floor is too dirty. This restaurant have good reputation and great food it will be nice to invest in better interior.

“Great Food, Service & Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We just discovered this little gem last weekend and were totally impressed by our visit. The service was fantastic, the food (The greek fries are a MUST) was amazing and the price was totally reasonable. We are looking forward to heading back to Banff for another taste.

“Great Greek food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

This is a very good Greek restaurant. The ambience is beautiful with exposed brink and wood beams throughout. We had a young waiter who was terrific - very knowledgeable, very enthusiastic and very much a showman.

The food was excellent. I had the Bison filets - Mmmmm!

“Delicious Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

As a family we have always enjoyed the food in this restaurant. We sometimes drive to Banff especially to dine in Balkan. The lamb chops are amazing.
