Romantic dinner

Yamas is quite a small but very cute restaurant with amazing greek tapas! The staff are really friendly and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. We definitely ordered way too much tapas however each dish was great and so we didn't have any regrets afterwards! Big advice to book in advance... read more

We arrived relatively late in the evening and ordered a meze of dishes. It felt like we were an inconvenience as a group and our dishes arrived feeling a bit like they were what was left in the kitchen at the end of the night. Really didn't leave feeling that happy or like we'd go back again. Maybe going earlier... More

Went on a Saturday afternoon with friends, we ordered lots of different food which was excellent and piping hot. The staff were extremely friendly and couldn't do enough for you, the atmosphere was good everyone enjoying themselves. Food was reasonably priced, drinks were a little expensive.

This was our first visit to this recommended restaurant and it was quite busy on a weekday. Lovely ambience and a good menu with a nice selection. Authentic cuisine and fresh with good presentation. The service was a bit slow but we can understand that as it was made up with smiles.

From the welcome at first entering to the cheerio everything was very good. The waiter we had for our table of 6 was extremely knowledgeable on wine, beer and advised on the menu in great detail. The food was excellent and well presented, for all 3 courses and the price was reasonable for 6 persons (with drinks) at £220.

I had a great evening, meeting a friend for dinner here. The menu clearly labelled which items contained gluten (and other allergens) but our very helpful waiter told me that some dishes could also be adapted if I liked. We had selected dips and gf pita bread for starters which was nice as there was no cross contamination! Followed by... More

I popped in here one evening on the off chance and it was very quiet. However, it filled up quickly. The food is a lovely mix of Spanish tapas and Greek mezze. I started with the crab risotto and dolmades, followed by the vegetable moussaka, patatas bravas and alioli. It is so delicious but I could not eat it all.... More
