Our family really enjoyed our recent lunch experience here. The restaurant is clean, bright and the big windows facing the street and their outdoor seating area was nice and appreciated. Our server was excellent in all aspects! She was very patient, calm and catered to us really well and professionally. The restaurant was busy but the atmosphere was not loud,... More

This is a wonderful restaurant! If you love Grrek food you won't find better anywhere but Greece. Chris and his staff are warm, friendly and efficient. Nice atmosphere, lots of light and very pleasant. The desserts are to die for, and I had a Ouzo and Blackberry wine shooter that was heavenly. The garlic dip will melt your heart. Don't... More

We have eaten in this restaurant often since opening and have been extremely impressed with the delicious range of traditional Greek food that they offer day in and day out! The service is second to none and make us feel welcome like family. My favorites are the roast lamb, ribs, moussaka, the lemony potatoes and most of all, the baklava... More

Greek dinner with family at Yiama's soooo delicious, especially the humous. I wish I had the recipe for it! Generous portions, excellent young lady waiting the tables almost single-handedly in a small casual dining area make it feel like home. You won't be disappointed!

Up in Courtenay for granddaughters grad and son took us for early dinner to one of his favourite dinning places. I ordered the Greek spareribs, melted in my mouth! Delicious flavour. Never have I eaten a full rack before. My two sons enjoyed their lamb souvlaki, cleaned up. Would like to mention the restaurant opened 1/2 hr early for us... More

I LOVE this restaurant. Their food has been consistently amazing. So full of flavour and well priced. If you're a fan of taramasalata then you have to try theirs and don't forget the Greek potatoes either. The service staff are always polite and attentive without being in your face. They recently hired a young girl as a waitress and I... More

When visiting Courtenay, a municipality on the east coast of Vancouver Island, try Yiamas Taverna for some great Greek food. The atmosphere is warm and inviting (just like tavernas in Greece) and the food and service are exceptional. The menu is extensive with many Greek appetizers, plus specials every evening. Fish & seafood are fresh daily and the variety is... More

This place is amazing. I didn't even know what Greek food was until I stepped foot in Yiama's, My wife and I shared the platter because we had never had real Greek food and we wanted to try out a variety of things. It was the best food I have ever tasted. The platter was huge. My wife and I... More
