We decided to try this little hole in the wall since we likewise because this is w Greek food. It was really good pita with txatkis and Greek salad. Know what you want to order before stepping to the window because this is essentially a very busy one man operation. Prices are reasonable and service quick

Found by accident as in the back street. Very small, but I was tired of walking and had a spare table out front. Both got a souvlaki, one chicken and the other beef. The flavours were incredible. He had amazing reviews inside so we went back the next night to try one of his burgers and not disappointed. Highly recommend... More

This shop is small in size but BIG on flavor.The pita raps with a greek salad was amazing, get extra napkins. Need a burger, this is the best in Banff. These hamburgers are made big, fresh and will put all others to shame. Don't blink on Bear Street you won't want to miss this Greek experience. It only gets a... More

Worst food joint in Banff! I've been going to barpas whenever I have some extra money caus I love Greek food and I work nearby so it's usuall on a dinner break. But the good times mean nothing to the times I've been treated like dirt and I've seen other customers treated like dirt by the owner himself. Let me... More

I go to Banff very often, but I never did get into the local, smaller eateries that usually only locals know about. From having traveled around so much though, I've realized that sometimes the less mainstream places can provide the best dining experiences. Barpa Bill's stands true to this theory. The food in general fits the bill as a greasy-spoon... More

Came here after a hard day skiing about 4:30. Just the perfect Apres food. The Pita was perfect, not oily and cooked over the char grill. Lamb was tasty and tender sauce was great too. I'm from Sydney and there are many pita souvlaki, none that taste any good... $10 (no GST) perfect great value. Many places you go eat... More

I was recommended to try this place out. We have ordered salmon burger (was on special), lamb pita, bread with hummus and fries. Spent more than $30. My burger was a bit bitter and not something I would come back for. My husband didn't mind the food. Fries were ordered for our daughter, but she didn't like them too much.... More

This is a very small restaurant offers good prices, but it seems you get what you pay for - except for the calamari. The calamari had a bad taste to it, as if the cooking oil hadn't been changed for a long time. They were a bit rubbery too. As it was the priciest thing on the menu, we were... More

Dropped in for a souvlaki and had the poutine to share. Great, fresh souvlaki and the poutine was much better than Eddie's. Bill was there slaving over the stove and he was very amiable and sweet. Good prices, nice staff. Definitely recommend.
