We were in the final days of a three week tour of western Canada. We had had a wonderful Greek meal in Victoria two weeks previously so thought we would try another. Unfortunately it was a disappointment. This place is extremely busy, in fact overcrowded, and the staff clearly cannot cope although perfectly friendly. The very ordinary, I would say... More

Awesome experience overall. We got the pork shoulder gyros with Greek fries off the lunch menu and they were amazing. Best meal that we had in the Banff region. The other dish was part of the regular menu, the grandma's lamb shanks (I don't recall the Greek name for it but that's in the description). That dish was pricey and... More

The best, fall off the bone lamb roast. I've been there three times... Love their food... well the lamb anyway...For added flavor a young lady was belly dancing around the tables for the 3 birthday celebrations that were going on....

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.

A fairly average restaurant with not much decor to speak of. Friendly server who recommended the Lamb Shank, which was excellent meat but veg. were poor. Priced at CAD 31 to us was expensive. Jugs of Sangria, mostly ice, was a rip-off at CAD 50!! Check the menu carefully before ordering! To make our visit 'memorable' we had a 15%... More

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'

The service and food was wonderful. Only complaint is that the food was too plentiful, an appy and greek salad was way too much my husband and I could have shared and we are pretty good eaters, however we will know for next time as we certainly would go back.

We were wanting something substantial and a little different from what we had been eating. This place gave us excellent Greek food. The waiter was great. We had leftovers and he made sure we had utensils so we could heat them up another day and eat them. We would stop again if we are in Banff.
