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.

Was recommended by a local to try here while on holidays in Banff. One of the best Lamb souva's I've had, hommus dip and cheese burgers where also winners, quick service and well priced.

super big patties, tasty and filling with a strong Greek influence. Located on what appears to be the locals street in Banff.

We sought out Barpa Bills on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. We arrived for a quick lunch after some sightseeing. The restaurant itself is small so if it's busy I'd expect takeout would be your best bet. When we were there it wasn't too bad and we cosies up to the bar. DW and I... More

The lamb in the pita is excellent; so are the burgers. Friendly couple behind the counter and it's one of our favorite places to stop for lunch when in Banff.
