Have raved about their entrees, but have yet to rave about the appetizers, in particular...saganaki! If you want Greek, you have to try their wonderfully fried cheese! The only thing missing was the flame and the OPA!!!

We were so very pleased to have our family birthday party of five people here! The atmosphere was attractive and sound subdued, so we could really have a nice visit where we could hear each other. The food was great! All of us enjoyed our meal of generous portions. We can highly recommend the calamari - the best we have... More

Our expectations were exceeded - there was a special NYE menu, which our server went through item by item. It got busier and busier as the night rolled on, and we did have to wait a bit for our bills... as it... More

The Comox valley is fortunate in that we have some of the best local cuisine available. Yiama's Greek Taverna has added to this experience by bringing us a true taste of the Mediterranean. True Greek food prepared by Greek and often served by Greek with a side of a belly dance. (Not "the" Greek) Great Vegetarian. Superb Lamb Nice portions... More

We were a party of 9 and the food arrived fast and furious, hot, fresh and very tasty. They even served fresh olive oil from one of... More
