We ate here for dinner and two out of three of us loved our meal. My salad was spectacular but one member of our group didn't like their meal. The atmosphere is very average. If you want health food in Banff this is a good option as there's not many Greek places in town. If you're used to eating Greek food, this restaurant may fall short of your expectations.

We live in a great location for Greek food and this place is right up there with our local restaurants. Get the flaming cheese appetizer and the gyros as well! Service was off the charts as well. The interior design is something that shouldn’t be missed and it’s a historic building! Make sure you check it out!

I was here 20 plus years ago, and the restaurant has been updated but the food and service were still on point. Downtown Banff is a little more like Downtown Disney these days but this quaint spot is worth the price of admission. The Spanakopita, and the pulled lamb gyro were excellent with service to match. I would hope this great spot stayed in the family as I did not see the owners from so long ago who were extremely personable, and welcoming. Overall great atmosphere, food, and service all reasonably priced.

We enjoyed a delicious meal tonight and shared a sampler platter which included lamb chops (delish), spanakopita (delish), moussaka (delish), skewered beef and pork (we struggled to get the meat off the skewers-very strange-meat was good, not great) and a few other sides. The salad and pita/hummus and other dips were delicious. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. A very pleasant experience overall.
