The food was delicious,varied and has something for everyone. Went twice, once had the soup and the other time had the stuffed pepper. Servers are friendly, helpful and show flexibility in terms of dietary requirements.

Liked the food so much we went back a second time. Tasty, not overly large serves, a standard salad will definitely feed 2 people, the lemon Greek,potatoes are delicious, lamb shanks melted in the mouth and lamb cutlets were succulent. Friendly service as well'

I simply LOVED this restaurant and would love to make it a stop if I'm ever in Banff again. A lot of my favourite Greek places have gone downhill and because of that I've no longer had the appetite for Greek food. I am happy...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
we are traveling to Banff in June with an infant and would like to have dinner on a Thursday at your restaurant. Is it appropriate to bring a baby to the restaurant and if so, what time does the Greek show start? Thanks H

Hi there, we are kid friendly and have high chairs and booster seats available. The Greek Night show starts at 8:30pm.
Is the meat halal?
