Just returned from Greece and was keen to compare the Moussaka! Yiamas did not disappoint with their vegetarian version of moussaka which proved to be an excellent choice for lunch. Thank you again.

Greek food is my favorite ethnic food. They do awesome lamb souvlakis, real lemon roast potatoes. Yummy. The best of all is thier dolmades. Stuffed grape leaves with lemon sauce. The hours are a little confusing.I suggest calling first.Sometimes they have a belly dancer.

Our friend had not tried Greek dining before and was very pleased with her roasted... More

this was an occasion. went down to our southern sister city, Courtenay, for our first visit on the restaurant's 3rd anniversary. There were 2 sittings for dinner and I'm glad we had the latter one....anything but a rush. We had a variety of food at our table and all was good. We all had some freebies including a flavoured ouzo.... More

Having decided to take myself for lunch ... I thought aaaah Greek, so being the only place in town the does Greek in I went, the decore reminded me of a small hole in the wall tavern, quite lovely, the restaurant wasnt overly busy but enough so that a 2nd waitress should have been on shift, it was a bit...
