Been to Yiama's 2 times in the past 2 weeks as the food surprised us. Was great! Hubby loves Kalamari and he said was some of the best he has had since our last visit to Italy. Dolmades are fabulous... grape leaves tender and filling tasty and the roast lamb was the same . Service is exceptional.

When walking into this quaint restaurant, you are greeted with the utmost respect and kindness. The atmosphere made you feel warm and welcomed, and service was beyond expectation made to feel friends by the owner himself. To order food, even on a busy night was quick and charming, courtesy and understanding when asking questions about menu items, and when the... More

Wow! We were so impressed by the food at this restaurant. All of it - the saganaki, the spanakopita, the pita...exquisite. But most of all the vegetarian moussaka. We honestly didn't miss the lamb and it worked out well for the vegetarian teen in the group. A wonderful spot for Greek food if you are passing through Courtney.

Outstanding Greek food! Good menu selection. Typically great service - just one horrific experience to date and will not let that deters us from visiting again.

We stumbled across this place 2 years ago when there were few restaurants open on Monday evenings in Courtenay and it has become our family favourite. Always impressed with the service. One waiter in particular handled the entire front end - seating, ordering, cleanup - for 10 tables with timely and attentive service. The roast lamb slow cooked on a... More

We ate here in July during a rain-soaked Musikfest. The food was excellent, especially my roast lamb and the hummus appetizer. They have a very unusual pita bread which was also superb. The portions are extremely generous and I brought half of mine home for lunch tomorrow. We both highly recommend this place if you're looking for a good Greek... More

Wandered into this delightful restaurant while passing through town. The atmosphere was quaint and clean, and the Greek hostess and waitress was charming. I enjoyed a great Malbec from their "glass" selection. The pour was generous, and the wine was great. Best wine I have had for the $ at a restaurant in Canada! Menu was typical Greek fare. I...
