I've had dinner at this place twice now and will come back again. The roasted lamb there is amazing, I've never had such tender and juicy lamb. The salad was very fresh with the most wonderful dressing. The servers were very attentive and eager to assist you to order a meal. The overall decor is very warm, family oriented, and romantic. The prices considering its in banff are reasonable in comparison to the portions and flavours you get. Hope to visit them soon again!

Sebastian, our waiter, was attentive and committed to providing us with a comfortable and delicious dinner. His interactions with another large family that appeared to make several table requests exemplified his patience and professionalism. Our meals were scrumptious and thoroughly enjoyed. It will be our pleasure to return to Balkan!

Our family really enjoyed the lunch at Balkar The Greek Restaurant during this pandemic period of time. All staff wear masks. Tables are kept apart according to the social distancing. We felt very comfortable to dine in this restaurant. The food are great.

The food and service remain impeccable since the last time we dined there years ago. My wife ordered the seafood linguini and I the chicken souvlaki. Our waiter advised us that what we ordered was more than sufficient...a very astute recommendation. Both entrees were fantastic and the kalamari appetizer that we shared was perfectly fried and garnished with those tasty pickled onions. Superb! Will return again sooner that our previous visit even during these trying times.

Excellent place to dine in Banff Disappointed some favourite items on menu not available anymore like traditional Greek moussaka but that’s understandable considering the COVID-19 pandemic

I wish I was seated on the patio. Inside the tavern, it was kind of gloomy without natural light. But the great service and good food made up for that shortcoming. Thanks.

Go to Balkan if you want to impress your date/partner/friends not if you are starving. You get $10 worth food for $25. Waste of money.

Always a great choice to dine in Banff. The food is consistently delicious. We shared saganaki and tatziki with pita to start. Both super tasty..reminded me of what we actually ate in our time in Greece. For our main course I had a delicious Mediterranean bowl with spinach rice, tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce, roasted red peppers and olives. My husband had his all time favourite, the lamb shank which is slow cooked and super tender. They have a great selection of Greek wines.

The highlight of every trip we make to Banff is having a meal (or two) at our favorite restaurant, Balkan. We were so happy to see that they had re-opened for service only a week before our visit. The attention to safety for their patrons is evident with the care being taken to ensure social distancing and cleanliness, We ordered the lamb shank dinner and the food was so fresh, perfectly cooked and well seasoned. Wine choices were limited, but very good; and the service was exceptional. As visitors will increase over time, it will be a good idea to reserve as I did - for our favorite spot at the windows.
