We have been to Yiamas a few times and consistently found the food to be very good. The portions are a decent size , the appetizers are great and the service is excellent.

After reading all the reviews n this date I expected a great meal. Instead, my lamb souvlaki was chewy and not very flavorful. Portions were small, too, though given the quality it is the least of my criticisms.

First went to Yiama's when it opened a couple of years ago. We really enjoyed the food and have been going regularly ever since. The food is always lovely and fresh and having now travelled to Greece, realize that it is quite authentic. They have some really fun Greek nights too, always heavily attended.

Nice relaxing atmosphere, Great service. The Lamb Roast dinner was great. The meat is so tender and all the roasted veggies so tasty. This is our 2nd time there. The first time we shared a Greek Platter which was more than enough for two. Their dessert was generous too..

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
