Firstly I advise booking ahead as this is a super popular restaurant and for good reason.
Service and setting was great, quite rustic and on split level. The atmosphere is vibrant but intimate and made to feel very welcome. Food was so good! I are the Kleftico and Lamb Shank with jus, it was awesome, both times! Husband had some kind of fish, I can't remember, which was perfect and Moussaka also fabulous! Highly recommend to dine here.

We had a party of 6 (4 adults and 2 pre-teens), and were catered to immaculately! The service was so much more that what we would expect, the food was outstanding, and the environment was fun!
We were all super impressed!

We ordered a few share platters for the night which we later found out that they had put three share platters on each large plate, making it nine share platters at $40 each. They definitely didn't try to certify that we wanted it because we didn't. We also previously spoke to a member of the Balkan staff when we booked our table and questioned if we were to pay an additional $40 per person and she said "no no no, you only pay for the food you order" and despite her statement they still charged us an additional $40 for another person making it the price of ten share platters for only nine when all we wanted was three to begin with. This was NOT a good memory to take back for the holiday and I wouldn't recommend this restaurant. The food was average and definitely NOT worth the price of it. Disappointing!!! If someone asked about it I would simply say "go somewhere else."

We've been to Balkan three times in the past few years and it has been delicious every time. The service was quick and friendly. The food was spot on delicious every time. We ordered the gyro pita special this time. The portion was generous and the price very reasonable. They came with a side of soup, salad or fries too. Definitely would return again.

We went for our first night in Banff & the food was so delicious. Coming from a Greek heritage myself, I found that the flavors & spices we're so true to the Greek style of cooking my family makes. Lovely place with a great, attentive wait staff.
